WC4 Loadout Graphics


Rear Admiral
This is just a thought, but has anybody ever extracted the rotating ships/missiles from the WC4 loadout screens? Seems like there's a treasure trove of good renders of all the cutscene versions of the flyable ships there. Could be good fodder for those of us building models. I have no idea how to do it, of course, but maybe somebody out there does? :)




Ooohhh... You've touched on a sore point here. Those screens were done using the detailed ship models you see in the FMV sequences. I would KILL (figuratively speaking of course) for a closer look at those models. Sadly it appears they are lost or locked up somewhere; I asked Ben about it a while back.

Anyhow, I did manage to extract some useful shots for my Hellcat model from those screens. I used VLC to capture a few seconds' worth of video, then used a video-to-jpg converter to pull the video apart frame-by-frame. Crude, but rather effective.

Of course, if anyone has any other suggestions, I am all ears...
