Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

I think Illarion has only a whiff of a chance to survive if new player come in. Nowadays people have a look to YouTube before they start playing a game. It is absolutely not helpful if they find in YouTube nearly exclusively hate movies of frustrated former player about Illarion.
Therefor I will go on searching for material that can be used to attract new player.

Ich glaube, dass Illarion nur dann einen Hauch einer Überlebenschance hat, wenn neue Spieler zum Spiel finden. Heutzutage gehört es zum Standard, dass man sich in YouTube über ein Spiel informiert. Es ist definitiv nicht zielführend, wenn in YouTube an führender Stelle ausschließlich Hassvideos über Illarion zu finden sind.
Deshalb werde ich fortfahren nach Material zu suchen, das verwendet werden kann neue Spieler zu überzeugen.

Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

Is it possible to have the English and German texts in different colours in your videos? I was also wondering if it would be better to record the video with English interface and to cut out any OOC talk. What do you think?

Thank you for joining.

btw. the raw material is perfect for the Runewick section of the general advertising movie. But the cut will be different.

Colors are adapted, I hope it is better readable now.
But I'll not run Illarion not in my native language German if I can avoid it. I don't speak English.

Basically I try to cut in a way, there is no ooc talk. In some cases I decide to have the talk there because some other movie elements I see for more important.
But should there were visible any stage directions, please let me know.

What about running the video in double speed? At least for the hunting part (all the seconds after the discussion)?

Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

Good video. Some constructive points:
- It's not necessary to show the loading screen, life is too short :lol:
- The promotional language of the game should be English first, German second (if at all). English is spoken and understood by far, far more people than German and has a huge impact on viewer interest and the potential for new players.

I started the creation of my advertising movie "Not the land of milk and honey.
There is a last scene missing yet.

Please criticize!

Last missing Scene:
The land
made for your role play!
The story book published almost 2 years ago:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/x0avqgp1k9w20 ... .xlsx?dl=0

The movie will be made in German and English.
I plan to speak the text or let it speak.

Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

1st reply:
- 1st scene if fuzzy, recapture!
- Scene change not with page rolling
- extend "The land" to 2 s (currently 1s)
- at the end loading screen faster and show char in Newbee Island
- "But the land where craftsman make unique items." ==> "But the land where craftsman produce unique items."

Da es zu dem Draft der Trailer keine Kommentare gegeben hat hab dann mal die ersten beiden Trailer in den offiziellen Kanal eingespielt.
Since there were no comments regarding the draft trailer I added the first two trailer to the official channel.

Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

Nice trailer. I liked the part where the group marches across the desert. It makes it look like they're going on an exciting adventure.

The talk about "land of milk and honey" seems weird though. This is most commonly known as a biblical reference to Israel (at least in English).

Also I would suggest in the future to use mostly footage with English chat for the English trailer, and German chat for the German trailer. For an English viewer, the first 45 seconds of the video makes it seem like this game isn't even in English at all.

Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

Some feedback from my side. First of all, thanks for putting so much effort into these videos to everyone who contributed and esp. Banduk. I like that the banners of the factions are shown in each scene. I think there are some things that can be improved:
  • English trailer must contain English language. The map and much text is German.
  • The music does not start from its start but in the middle of a tune.
  • The map is deviating from the general aspect ratio of the trailer. I'd recommend to use a neutral background like http://illarion.org/shared/pics/background.jpg
  • I do not like the "zooming" of the Illarion logo, it makes it look blurred.
  • The music cutting is very disturbing. Use one music and then blend to another if really necessary. I'd recommend to match the trailer length with the main theme's duration and use no other music.
  • The cuts within scenes are too fast paced for my taste. Better stick with one piece of footage for a while.
  • Right aligned text is difficult to read and looks odd.
  • I'd prefer "cut screens" to show the text.
  • Can't you hide your mouse pointer? The unwanted lookAts and seeing you click on stuff is not immersive.
  • I also recommend not to type while shooting. Draws too much attention away from what is said in the game/chat.
  • There are plenty typos and "unpicturesque" texts such as "hmm".
  • Fonts: Illarion uses a main font without serifs (Ubuntu) but you use a different font with serifs. That looks inconsistent. Better use the game's font.
  • I cannot make out what the loading screen in the end is supposed to deliver as a message.
  • 1280 x 720 (720p) is a more common resolution for Youbtube videos. It is 16:9 aspect ratio, the most common aspect ratio of monitors (like 1920 x 1080 aka Full HD)

Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

Language :
Sad to say the game scenes are not a movie with actors but real IG scenes. It was hard enough to find appropriate scenes in my collection out of about 2 years playing Illarion. I tried multiple times asking people for support but ended up every time alone or with a single actor. That makes it impossible to get language consistent and typo free scenes. Be aware, playing such scenes will take at least about 2 hours per realm plus taking IG day and night cycle into consideration.
So if there are 4-5 player willing to support on 5 days, I'd really like special acted scenes.
Resolution:
Everything is cut and made as 1280x720. Ill have a look what happens here. Any higer resolution isn't possible since I have a small notebook with half HD resolution only.

Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

If available I can help with my witch. Possibly set up a doodle for all that wish to sign up on? I roleplay my witch different from what you would need for a video (I don't pay attention to if you are looking for a video or not), perhaps setting something up and giving us hints on what is needed would be best?

Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

I tried to make some changes:
https://youtu.be/UvJZeTYaoNc
  • Map in English
  • Honey collection in English (shows the server/client language error ('unverletzt'))
  • Fade in and out for the music
I tried and revoked:
https://imgur.com/a/wSrta
  • Non serif fonts
    that works for the small text but for the big ones
    For me it looks like something for a 21th century space game and not for a medieval fantasy game setting
  • Right alignment of text
    That way the picture construction is disturbed. The text pierce the center of the screen instead surrounding it.
  • The first and second music starts at the begin, the others are chosen in a way less fitting parts are cut away
    The different musics should support the message of the different realms.
  • Zooming of Illarion was an explicit wish and based on the following guide for movie maker. "Don't have scenes where nothing changed over time!"
  • The message I try to have at the last scene with the loading screen "Load the game and play!"

Re: Recording for Movies / Aufzeichnungen für Videos

Did you try Black Chancery, the other game font?

https://img.dafont.com/preview.php?text ... ize=m&y=47

My proposal for the logo would be fading rather than zooming.

Ubuntu really doesn't fit.
Black Chancery is a very nice medieval looking font but hard to read, even if I enlarge the text.
Maybe the enlarged one with the light black shadow can be used.

I'd really wish more people tell us what they think about. Take into consideration, that's the way Illarion is seen from the 'other space'!
Ich würde es sehr begrüßen, wenn mehr leute hier ihren Senf dazugeben. Bitte denkt daran, es geht darum wie Illarion von außen gesehen wird!
