As we pass 22,000 pageviews, I want to thank you all for making this my most popular video I have ever created. This video has been featured and shared across the Internet and all the comments you guys have to say has really made me realize just how powerful this video is. I know when I made this I was mostly trying to target myself while still making it possible for others to relate to it, but you guys are seeing it as if it was your character as well, which makes the nostalgia just become incomparable to anything else I've seen. So thanks for making Time something worth making and sharing to the rest of you guys. I'll continue to make videos for WoW but these do take a lot of time to put together as you're aware, so if you're patient with me you'll be rewarded. Thanks again guys!
You should probably read the description. Thanks :)
This is an idea I've had since school got out near the beginning of May. I wanted to share the memories I've had while playing World of Warcraft since I've essentially retired from the game in Cataclysm. So this is my last hoorah of how much fun WoW was for me. The video covers almost seven years of my adventures, starting from Vanilla all the way to the end of Wrath of the Lich King.
This is a video based from this:
Here is why each scene is important to me: http://sorelstrasz.deviantart.com/jou...
Time by Hans Zimmer (Inception Soundtrack)
Sony Vegas 8.0
World of Warcraft
WoW Machinima Tool
WoW Model Viewer
Here are the pictures that are featured from this video as a preview to the finished film:
The process of making each of these scenes in the video is time-consuming. I first take a screenshot of the background from WoW and then film a scene with it. Afterwards, I go into WoW Model Viewer and create my character with appropriate posing and armor. Then, I save the picture and put it into GIMP along with the background. Here, I do the editing of the models including lighting, shading, shadows, effects, clouds, and what not. All of these layers are saved individually and then are uploaded into Sony Vegas. From there, I crop and pan each picture so that the scene is finished. The most strenuous part of this whole process is key-framing the models to the ground while the camera is in motion. It takes a good two hours to get a picture and a scene complete.
A scene usually has the background recording, the model, and a black model underneath the actual model. The black model is there so that when the camera fades out, the model doesn't fade and appear transparent. The black model prevents the transparent issue. There's your educational fact of the day.
