Arkham Ciy Montage (Warning: Contains spoilers)...


Hey all, here's a montage from Arkham City I've been working on intermittently the past few weeks. This does contain a few spoilers, though they are brief and not the big ones. So you have been warned!

I know it's not "gaming news" by any means, but I wanted to share it with as many people as possible. As always, constructive criticism is appreciated. Like the video if you enjoy it! Much love!

Noiyce!

I really like all the little static on the beats, cool touch and didn't get annoying.

The one thing I didn't like was the fade-to-black on the cuts in the very beginning and up to about 0:20. Think they were way too long; even though they seemed to reflect what was happening with the music they felt wrong to my eye.

You could actually keep them the same length if instead of a linear fade you were able to use a logarithmic fade! But I don't know if your video program has that option.

What that would do, in case anyone is wondering, is change the decrease in luminosity from a linear progression to a geometric progression, having the effect of making the scene seem bright for longer, then much more rapidly going black towards the back end of the effect.

Thanks man. Heh, I like the static... that's one of my "things." As far as logarithmic beats, if you can give me some visual examples, I'd be happy to oblige in the future. I know you don't like that inky blackness.

That being said, there are countless options in Vegas. Just purchased a book to formalize my training a bit more. If I can get my ADD self to focus, it could greatly benefit my hobby!

'preciate the feedback bud. Added the noise of the 'splosion in the end with you in mind.

Upon reflection, I think I know what you mean. My reason for the fade outs served two purposes:

1. Not showing characters talking.

2. It synced to the music.

In every video like this, I may speed up or slow down clips. In some instances, you can only do it so much because it looks odd. I was basically constrained by dialogue though.

Upon another watching, I'll refine my comments to 'there's pure black being shown for too long' in various parts of the opening right after a fade to black. If you cut out the pure black the moment it goes black and cut to scene it would be better. I think you've got about 200 - 400ms or so of nothing but black after a couple fades and it's enough to feel off, enough to make my eye hunger for something to see. Like hitting a visual wall somehow.

Thank you!

I really liked it. Feels like you spent some time making it, too. Some parts were hectic, but positively correlating to the music. Nice!
