Hi, and welcome to another Dev Diary!
Unfortunately the TimeLapse video is a little bit late. I'm currently rendering it and the final render will be ready around midnight today (UTC +2) and it depends on the connection quality how long it will take to upload it to YouTube (plus how long YouTube will take to process the video). I estimate that the video will be up in 4 hours after publishing this devdiary.
While we are waiting...
The model for Front doors, is almost ready. Eye hole and mail slot are still missing.
There is not much updates on the modeling it self, as I have been busy tackling the technicalities of video processing with VirtualDub2 (more info below). But I managed to record one video more, while making this model for the front doors and hinges for them. After the front door, I'll be tackling the room doors, windows and the door to sauna.
Editing an Edition of an Edition.
Since I have been experimenting with the video encoding tools while searching for a good, lossless way to edit my videos, there has been a lot of editing being going on on the first #time-lapse video. First, I have been looking for all the different kinds of plugins that are useful or essential for making a time-lapse video. The quality and success of these tryouts have varied much and I'm quite certain that I might have found the ideal combination for lossless editing, partly without a GUI.
Thus far, My toolbox for video editing includes;
I'm also planning to release a clip of the original cut, that is a 20 minute long video (that I first planned to release) and make a Poll on what you like more, the faster paced release and shorter version, or the smoother but still quite fast paced video. Also, would it be better to release one big video with multiple songs, or measure the video lengths for the duration of the songs? I'll upload sample videos as soon as possible.
The Music Pics.
As music for the videos, I chose game music remixes - maybe not the best kind of music for everyone, but it fits the theme - a gamer making a game for gamer's, who are waiting for the final product while watching a time-lapse of me making assets for the game and listening to game remix music. Gamy stuff.
The pics for the first video are (in order);
I still plan on making my own music for the teaser of the Project Taival and several other videos in the future, but I can't promise a release date for those still. What i can promise though, is that I'm learning something every day, that helps this project to go forward.
Thank you for tuning in again and I'll see you again on the next weeks Dev Diary!
Which one has a better pace in your opinion? Should the pace be even slower? Feel free to leave some feedback.
