Bounty display wip.
« on: Apr 06, 2017, 09:52 PM »
So I like having many projects going at once... haha.  So of course I decided to do some work in adobe after effects and put together a "bounty list" video that someone can pull up on a phone or something, embedded in their kit.

When it's done there'll obviously be more than one entry in the vid.  And I think I'd be open to making custom vids for clans and such featuring clan logos, members, clan colors etc....

Without further ado: https://youtu.be/gdd8VeYh3-k

Questions, comments, and criticism is welcome!

I really like it. Is the outer glow supposed to emulate a backlit LCD? If so, I'd recommend adding it to all the text and removing the stroke. Really love the effect on the photo.

This looks awesome! The Lorum Ipsum threw me off for a minute, but this looks like an amazing project.

I'll be watching this thread; I've wanted to add a screen to my gauntlets in my Mk II.

Thanks for the comments.

I did a few little changes. Increased some of the glow on the text, and added some glow to the bounty image.

And for those of you reading the Mandalorian text, I've replaced the lorem ipsum, with something I think you'll get a chuckle out of.

Is there interest with having a version of this full of other Mercs?  Someone could submit themselves with a short "bounty report", and a picture and be added into the video.

I'll probably at least do one full of random people/species/etc from the SW universe.

I think this is a phenomenal idea, but I think it would be best to load it with generic baddies, like the suspected sith mastermind you have currently. Maybe having it as a template that you can insert some Mandos with an achievement sort of list.

Do you think I should do well-known bad guys or more of a random collection of species that I make up info on?

I would think an 80/20 random to known bad guy ratio just to keep things fresh, but also having a face or two that somebody might recognize. Of course thats just my thoughts. At this rate, what ever you end up with, I'll be incorporating it into my kit in some way shape or form.

I like that 80/20 idea.  Should get some time to add new bounties to the "database" in the next day or so.

Hmm. Maybe you could make this into a template? Not super familiar with After Effects, but if it's anything like Premiere Pro, then you should just be able to create a template where people can sub in their own image and keep everything else the same. Up to you, of course, since it's apparent you put some good work into this.  ;D

It's basically setup like a template now. Just copy the bounty listing part, change the text, change the pic and you're done.  The only thing is people would need to have after effects to be able to edit it.  Like I said I'm super open to making custom ones for people, just get me the pic and small bounty bio.

Made some progress.

Upon uploading I saw some issues that have already been fixed. Mainly the "motion" of the tile effect on some of the portraits being a bit delayed.

I think some people will get a kick out of the currently last, bounty!
