How big do you think that 10-minute monster would be? A gig? Two gigs? The answer is around 350MB, not bad considering my bad rendering abilities in the past. Would I ever reshoot them into smaller videos? The answer is no, I will however, just do remakes. It’s more efficient that way.
But anyway, here’s the link to the video.
and you can watch it here on Iwara TV if you don’t mind the lower quality.
When you consider that Trollvids’ size limit is around the 250 range, it’s not that drastic of a quality drop. I hope it’ll make you see things better that my poor rendering wasn’t able to do in it’s streaming version. Not that there’s anything in there that merits a second look… I’m just like everyone else, what you see in the first run is what you get.
So anyway this’ll be the last time I’m saying it; this goes for everyone who’s already seen the video, whether they’ve downloaded it or watched it in Trollvids… Episode 1 doesn’t have a huge payoff yet because it’s only the intro episode. These were parts that I felt necessary to establish who, what, where, and when. They felt very disjointed compared to the upcoming scenes for Ep.2 and Ep.3 but at the same time it was something I couldn’t do away with.
So the best solution was to put all that “exposition stuff” in the first episode. It introduces the characters and gives them a taste of what’s to come. Also, it serves another purpose. See the thing with dancing scenes and your regular hentai is that it tends to be fast paced, so you don’t get to appreciate your character’s body. This Episode 1, let’s you do just that. Get a good look of her body so that later when she’s forced to shake it as lewdly as she can onstage or being bounced up and down a Snorlax’s lap in front of her fans, you already have her slo-mo walk burned into your brain to appreciate it.
Episode 2 is very close to finish rendering as well since the original idea was to release a 20+ minute episode, which I found to be excessive. Sure, Happy School pulled it off pretty fine, however, the reason it did so was because the music switching was independent of the video. In the case of Project May, the music and video are tied together, for reasons you will see, so therefore the scene changes are just too abrupt and too many for most to process… and I can’t imagine doing that for 20 minutes straight.
I mean sure it’s something an avant-garde surrealist director would do, but I’m not really that wacky. Like everyone else I follow rules and conventions, the only difference is, I’m just aware of the many rules and conventions there are for me to work with. Think of anything that I do differently from other MMDérs and you’ll notice that those quirks may not exist in other MMD movies, but they do exist in regular shows like television or cinema.
So there you go, Project May, Episode1, or Pokemon X Ep.1 as it is called in the video.
Before I move to Episode 2, there is a side project I wanna release next.
To give a recap, Project May was originally Project Rin Ep.2, then Project Suwako because I missed seeing bouncy boobs, then became Hinata…then finally settling to May/Haruka due to having lots of resources to use.
During this long development limbo I ended up creating tons of other videos experimenting on different things. Those that I could use for the Project made it in, while those that didn’t… I reserved for later works.
And one of them, had enough material for me to release. I only spent one day patching up the holes in bad camera takes and animation errors by crafting inbetween scenes (some of them, not all inbetween scenes are meant as patch jobs) the only thing that took time was rendering.
So there you go, I wanna relax for a bit. In the meantime, please wait warmly because ANOTHER video is coming soon. As I type this I’ve finished rendering the HD version and am currently rendering the Trollvids edition as well.
