Well its been a while now since I promised the core team members that I would be re-creating the Duck Spin animations. For those of you who are scratching their heads; these animations were shown when you hit the (info) button on the ship selection screen. I came to understand that it was not possible to include the original Star Control 2 animations INTO the pc port for legal reasons. (You can put them in after the fact of course, but they do not belong to us.) To that end, I am re-doing IT ALL, including the intro and ending videos. This time however, each ship description video will be an ACTION SHOT and belong to everyone. All animations will be 400 frames, with a pause at frame 300 for ship information overlay. McMartin will be working on that I think. More than 80% of the material needed to do all this doesnt exist yet. I am looking for as much good source material as possible to help my designs remain true to the heart of SC. In October, there will be
a UQM PROMO VIDEO combining these animations with high quality screenshot videos and other material. Ive even contacted Eric Schwartz to see if he was willing to help create a few parts of the video. (Clip showing a Shofixti female waking from cryogenic sleep, etc
) Its going to make you cry people! I have basically completed only one scene so far. The Mycon. (My favorite)
I have re-rendered the video in the HD format the promo video will be.
