Its ok, but the FPS is pretty low, and I dont know about that music ..... kinda doesnt fit.

I thought it was pretty good. I did notice the FPS issue when the attack started. I think a hog machine is needed to make it smooth with that many objects AND that crazy storm going on. Here comes the rain again fit like a glove with what I saw. The lightning effects in this sim are goregous.

I can't make movies so I like when you guys do this stuff for us. Thank you to Avatar. ~S~.

I usually only read here at the forum but after watching this movie I had to write my comment. I thought the movie was a very good one compared to some of the ones to come out the last few days and done by one person. keep up the good work and make some more. this wil be a great addition to my collection..

Good cinematic effort, I think.

Thinking of getting IL2 or FB.

I'm assuming the IL2 and or FB programme have what it needs to save them straight out to a movie file (to then be edited in an NLE) - or is there something else required?

Avatar, Good job! I love watching the movies made by our many "frameographers", and you have added to everyones enjoyment.

I could see the conncetion between "Sweet Dreams" and the weather, however I personally would have liked something more befitting the action. It did give the video a dreamlike quality however. This is not really a critisim, just a personal view. I'll be critical of these films when I can put up or shut up.

I look forward to your next effort.

S!

Yeah UCLANUPE told me not to be critical of other peoples movies until I released a movie myself(My newbie mistake). I dedcided to take his advice and things have been a bit better for me since then.

Great flick Avatar! Being a little older, I liked the music. Frame rates worked fine for me. Thanks for your efforts. S!

Avatar,

Congratulations on your first film!

Like the concept of history that you have behind your first movie, this is something that I always like. Keep up the good work and wish to see new movies that you make!

Excellent!! Good use of both the "game" sounds/radio chatter along with the music soundtrack. very few movie-makers have been able to use that technique effectively.

The story-telling text was also appropriate, and not overdone.

I thought the music was appropriate...a bit sad/melancholic to fit the story.

Well Done, Avatar...

P.S. The "Virtual War Cinema" site is back up...there was a server problem, but the site is back up with much improved reliability and capacity now. It is, of course, a Site dedicated to movie-making discussions. http://www.blacksheepwebdesign.net/VirtualWarCinema/

Yes. IL2 or FB will save a replay as a track file, playable only inside the game. There are at least two that I know of free downloadable programs out there for capturing a track to a edit-able format. Most people like FRAPS (which I can't use because of my slightly older video card) and HyperCam. If you do get either of the IL2 titles (and you most definately should), good luck with your movie making! Hope this helped.

Edit: Oh, and by the way, thank you for a very fine movie, Avatar. Quality work. I really enjoyed the narration... helped set the action, and interesting historical information.
