((Note: This topic was originally in the wrong section, so I moved it myself while I try to get in touch with a mod to delete the old one. My bad!))
I must say, I find it amazing I’m actually going to be contributing SOMETHING–albeit a crappy little movie-- to this place after lurking here for many years (millennia).
Basically, I was just fooling around in rp_silenthill (Which is an amazing map, so much love to Sgt. Sickness for the beautiful recreation) and an idea hit me. It started out as a little experiment, but the power of ADDsbergers hit me, and I ended up working on this for a day straight without pause other than for sustenance. I can be that way when I’m in work mode. As I said, this is more or less a little experiment; if people like this enough I’ll probably continue, as I have another machinima project on the horizon I’d like to get some experience for first (A machinima of TF2 I think would have a lot of OBJECTION!)
I did this in plain old GMOD with some help from Sony Vegas. Appropriate credits are in the video description. I’m not a professional by any means as you will see; the bit where the gun is fired had originally been Gmod removing the gun from Jason’s hands – I had to try and edit it in manually. After about 6 tries I gave up. I’m a perfectionist, but I’ve been too eager to show this to at least SOMEONE.
tl;dr version: I like vidya games, specifically Silent Hill. Lookie what I made!
Couple of things I was wondering. In the original Silent Hill, the camera was not static, but rather it followed you around. Is it possible to do such a thing myself and still have control of the ‘character’ on screen?
