View Full Version : Tomb Raider: The Legend II [50-60 thanks everyone]

30-08-05, 14:13
After a long time workng on this vid, its finally done. not that i wasted more time on doing this, i only wasted my time on one thing. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif
im pretty happy with it now, so i call it done and let u watch and tell me what you think. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
now im moving on, but i think i will wait til Eidos releases new footage until i do my next project.
it feels like ive milked out all i can from the Africa level (This vid is 12min long) ;)

A little info about this movie:
The Legend I has been downloaded 50 times.
The Legend II has been downloaded 60 times.
Legend I took 2 days to make
Legend II took 14 days to make
Legend I is about 4 minutes long
Legend II is 12 minutes long
the "sun effect" from the photos was quite simple (only another video on top of the other) to do, but even if it might be hard to notice all the slowmotion and zoom effects, that took the most time; The Legend II have over 450 cuts.

I removed the non-widescreen versions. Ull miss part of the screen, but it looks better without the logos at the bottom of the screen. and tombraiderchronicles.com gets their credit at the end anyway ;)
if u absolutly want the non-widescreen versions, they are still up on filefront. just look in the "The Legend 2" folder. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
The Legend II widescreen [640x480, 60mb] (http://files.filefront.com/TLIIW640wmv/;4081430;;/fileinfo.html)
The Legend II Widescreen [320x240, 27mb] (http://files.filefront.com/TheLegend2widescreenwmv/;4080295;;/fileinfo.html)
The Legend II Widescreen [320x240, 15mb] (http://files.filefront.com/TLIIW15mbwmv/;4080855;;/fileinfo.html)
The Legend II Widescreen [160x120, <5mb] (http://files.filefront.com/Thelegend2widescreenmodemsizewmv/;4080461;;/fileinfo.html)

the pics here above is from the Widescreen Version. And with the WV u dont have homepage logos on the video either http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Ok i was talking to the other video creaters in this forum, asking if someone has and cool/useful effects and stuff for MovieMaker???
anyway i downloaded a few effects to make the vid this threads about. like 10%slowmotion, video overlay, letterbox for widescreen, 10%overlay. and a few more. but i want more for my future projects http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Here is a vid that shows the effects (~5mb) (http://files.filefront.com/effectswmv/;4084648;;/fileinfo.html)

Nomedo, you are a star!!!! I'm really impressed of your skills, you are very creative!! Keep up the good work! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

02-09-05, 04:33
Awesome!! where do you download them?... waiting for future projects :D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

02-09-05, 11:00
its pretty easy to make the effects (simple XML), so they are all over the internet. i have modified some myself to make them more useful for me.
ill upload a few of things i have so everybody can use them http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
Click here to download it (http://files.filefront.com/AddOnTFXrar/;4089096;;/fileinfo.html) (i dont have winzip, so its packed with winrar)

this is how you "install" ;) them.
there is a folder called "AddOnTFX" (addontfx wont work, so check the name). Place that in "\Movie Maker\shared\" theres other files there and a folder called profiles i think.
now the installation is done, and if you get more effects simply place them in the AddOnTFX folder.

02-09-05, 11:02
This is In the folder i uploaded:

Comp A add B
This is a transition that places the "B clip" on top of the "A clip" instead of just fading them.
black will be invissible. this is the file i used for both the rain and sun in the legend II.
Tips: In MM u cant drag a transition all over a clip, u have to leave 0,08sec, but if you save the clip as a file, import it again, then its only "one clip" again so u can cut it and place effects on it again . http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Widescreen 6,7 and 8
this is also a transition that use "clip A" as a letterbox. the best way to use this is to save your video, import it, and place a black image in fornt of it. then use widescreen transition and drag it all over the video.
Tips: this is a good way to remove the logos that often are in the right corner in a clip.
Tips2: you can open the XML file in notepad and change the value too. 0.9 is less "widescreen" and 0.5 will cover half the screen.

Transculent 0.2
this is a bit like "comp A add B" but you only see 20% of the "B clip". this can be used to make a ghost/motion blur effect if you place the same clip on top almost the smae time.
i also used this to make the screen more gray for the rain by adding the scond clip with grayscale. simply copy the clip, cut off 0,08 sec in the end of the first clip and then you can put them exactly over eachother if you dont want the "ghost effect".
Tips: modify the value of this XML file in notepad to make it 10%, 30%, 40% transparent, to make it fit you.

Speed +/-10%
this is an effect that slow down/speed up the clip by 10%. this is very useful and i used this to make the slowmotion effects in The Legend II.
cut, palce on or a few of those, and cut again. for a slowing down effect; place 1 in the first cut, 2 in the next and so on... that will make the clip go slower and slower (of course faster too). it can also be used with the "half speed" effect thats allready in movie maker.
this is the main reason why my film ended up with over 450 cuts. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

this is what it sounds like. it wil shake the screen. make cuts to place the shake exactly where u want it. u can also plave many shakes in the same clip to make it really shake http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Sky Captain 1,2,3,4
this will add noise and overbright to your video, a bit like in Sky Captain and the world of tomorrow, with the beautiful Angelina Jolie :rolleyes: .
I made skycaptian 4 myself, and it does not have the noise effect, only the overbright.
this looks almost like HDR, thats so popular in games nowadays.

the color filter pack
this will add color and negative filters to your video.
tips: use this on the second clip when you use the "transculent" effect to make it only appear 20%.

you will find this where you find the other texts. use this to put your name in the corner of the video so no one can steal it http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/mischievous.gif
tips: if you use the widescreen effect, remember to put this on the last thing you do so the "black in widescreen" dont cover this text.

ok this was it. have fun with all the new effects everyone http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
and remember, if you find any other effects, tell me bc i want more too ;)
ill give you the links to sites where you can download rain/sun/explosions/smoke too, as soon as i find them again http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

04-09-05, 14:16
just when u thought this thread were dead,
i found links to sun, rain, explosions and smoke video clips that can be used in the vids http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
very good explosions and fire on those sites. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Anytime, nomedo http://fool.exler.ru/sm/dog.gif

I want more videos :D http://fool.exler.ru/sm/cowb.gif

08-09-05, 00:32
Ben croft, im allready working on my next project. and its defenetly gonna be different. it will not another sequel to The Legend (I/II). It will be much more complicated to make because im tryin to mix in my own clips, and im recording the voice acting right now. i just have to wait for my sister to audition as Laras voice ;) .
but ive made the opening and decided which music im gonna use.
its called "Tomb Raider:SE". But im not gonna say what SE stands for just yet.

WOW. The video sounds promising http://fool.exler.ru/sm/ura1.gif

08-09-05, 12:36
I've just seen your video and it's great, I must say, that I think the only thing I didn't like about it was the duration. Better short videos. But, is the same, I love the sun effect!. I see you know a lot of making videos, I have much to learn!

EDIT: Nomedo, I passed the post here ;)

ok mau3. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
thank you. yes i know its a little long, but i wanted to show off as much of the african level as i could. and i had been doing trailers that were only about 40-60 seconds before. so i decieded to make it 10+mins.
