@01:30Thanks dude, nope I dint use any sounds from HL2, all the sounds are generated using virtual synths or personal recordings and put through modified effects

@00:18Hello. I liked the project - How do I get the files from this project in general?
Sorry for the question I'm new here, and I wonder if all projects are downloadable here. Sorry for my english ^^

This is technically my first music video.
I spent a very long time working on this, i couldnt give a total render time because of all the different programs i used.
The main aim for this was to get to grips with different kinds of synchronisation, i tried all sorts. All in my spare time, since i havent started working yet.

# For the first part, i used a technique called filmstrip editing, where i edited all the frames in photoshop. then After Effects was heavily involved.

# The second part is mainly chopping and editing in Premiere, the interface is excellent on there, you can really enlarge the waveform to see where youre going.

# The final part was a long cut in cinema 4d where i edited movement and keyframes from inside c4d along the waveform. I also used an after effects script to import waveform data to keyframes for attributes in c4d.

# Finally, i shouldnt need to say, I used After Effects for post production on every stage, its been a great learning experience, though a tedious one :)

Its quite rough, but im a one man team and i could easily see myself having spent infinate time on this, i had to call it quits at some point.

I used fruity loops to create all the music from scratch.

Woah, how did I miss this?! For a one-man-production, this turned out great! I cant listen to the audio here at work, but I love the effects you used.. mainly the volume / 'lightning' effects. I would love to know your technique - and despite what "real" compositors say, After Effects is the Bomb-Diggity ;)

I think the aspect I like the most about it is all the motion and timing of the lighting and everything. There is just so much motion, and such rich colors that it kept me looking all over and thru the designs. Great eye candy, and your custom music is pretty sweet too ;)

oh yes, that's very inspiring work :) very close to what i aim to do, except with fractals and totally procedural music, and entirely from scratch (i.e. no 3rc party programs or libraries etc).

I am really jealous of programmers such as yourself, I make all my work from scratch (as far as not writing my own software goes) but none of it is made generatively. Procedural music is something I really admire, what environment will you be coding it in? I have been planning on getting to grips with Pure Data or Processing, I think a modular interface would work better with my brain.

@01:30i been using fruity loops since i was 15, so i know my way around, i used Reaktor 5 as well actually. so interfacing wasnt too difficult, it was actually the music that inspired me to make the video, because inspiration for music comes much more rarely

@01:30beyond sexy mate, only critique I can offer is to make it less obvious that you're rotating view and make it seem more like you're traveling through the render like in some parts.

reminds me of toonami years back :D
