Grand Scale Scaling Back
Ok, we’re done with all the massive prepping, the footage for both monitors has been completed, the reskin textures for the rotating displays are all done, all that’s left now is to render the final video of that ONE CHOREOGRAPHY
Yup, still got plent more I want to use.
However, I had to do some serious scaling back. First of all, the Backup Dancers had to go, now you’d think with all my testing of possible angles I had it all figured out, well in reality it’s quite different when you now have the videos playing on the monitors, too many times the backup dancers ended up acting like censors blocking all the fun stuff, back to the cutting room floor they go.
Of course I do realize that once I start rendering this, there will be no turning back on the music choices. A band of animatronics shredding away at the guitar means I will never ever be able to use electronic music for that project ever again. So just to test if I’m making the right decision, I decided to render a small sample (Which I will NOT show, too much spoilers)
What I can show though, are the retexturing work on the rotating displays as well as the DJ table.
Do note that a huge part of these pics will be cropped out for the rotating displays since they’re supposed to be in portait as opposed to landscape.
Yes I said DJ table because I also made an EDM version. Please do not say “just make both” I don’t have space for it. There were many bumps on the DJ table slideshow though, first one is that it’s just a lazy rework of the H2S version, second, it didn’t show up well in the screen due to it’s size and distance.
And yeah, they’re just lazy replacements too. Let’s count the watchable elements here…it’s the same as in H2S
- The spectacle on the stage
- center screen video
- side screens that mirror and close up the movements
- rotating display
- the dj table slideshow
Karen’s project pretty much has the same number of elements there but for some reason the center screen just isn’t showing up properly and now with the dancers gone, there’s just lots of dead space which really irritates me.
I need to do some serious editing on the stage, it just isn’t watchable like this with all the unused room.
Another thing that needed a scale back was the music band itself, after reviewing the test footage to the music, it wasn’ a perfect fit, so I decided to open them up to more opportunities by slowing down their motions by a considerable amount.
Well, that concludes today’s blog, have fun, relax and enjoy your Thanksgiving…just don’t work too hard on that turkey~
