BrynS was playing with the
WC4 Homeworld 2 mod engine and thought it'd make a good backdrop for mixed gameplay/live actor videos. He's edited together a few scenes from the WC4 DVD and combined them with scripted shots in the Homeworld engine to create a neat example. The game's external camera work turned out pretty decent. Check out the 22 meg avi here. The original idea was to make something like this for the CIC Birthday last month, but things didn't come together in time. Better late than never (at least he beat out most of the Birthday Prizes!).
Still it was a labour of love and like the rest of the mod testing, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I hope this basic template gives a glimpse of the cinematic potential that the mod will present when released, especially to those interested in recreating lost scenes and events only previously described, expanding on existing Wing Commander FMV or creating original movie compilations complete with voice-overs.
