I haven't figured out your story yet but the graphics
and animation are very professional.
About the story:
There are two important things: conflict between pessimism and optimism. Optimism happen only in Part 5. For example, the bird (part3) has a meaning that will be visible in the final video editing. Simply i would add a scene to understand that the column of energy of the terminal may be beneficial. here's a scoop that I have not yet revealed: A feather (full of energy) falls on the ground and vegetation will be spread on the floating rock. Anything that destroys the technology benefits of nature but centibots must find a balance. In Part 5, the earth will be covered by a second Earth's crust. And all this must remain surreal. Therefore it is difficult to understand history without knowing the whole. and sometime i change the story when i progress... but i know what i want and explain a surreal story with a bad english is not easy.

A few second but it will be a hd movie and you will see more details in the final assembly. It is why i need time to do the movie. Not because the time to render, because a hd movie need a lot of details (modeling, textures). The stuff under the screen is a wink for star war. I like to insert this kind of detail inside the scene. It is not the only one. ;)

Very nice work Marcel. I am no movie maker, and certainly not qualified to crit, but I do like the cuts, it really helps to keep the viewer interest on the story. I am anxious to see this whole story play when it is done. Very interseting, somehow you have figured out how to get pretty good effects from TS, very admirable.

Thank for your comment Rich. We do not see you often enough here. :)
Critics (in artistic way) from non pro are often good because they are not influenced by their job. Pro are too technic. ;)

Stunning work as usual Marcel. Great sense of awe and power in this fourth clip. And as throughout, really love the lighting levels you have used, it really shows the metal surfaces at their best.

Can't wait to see how this is going to conclude. Keep up the good work - your inspiring us all.

I can't wait to see the end too! :mrgreen:
thank you for all the comments. This project is also posted in a French forum, and have plenty of answers that helps me to improve this movie. It's interesting to have different opinions from several countries. When all parts are finished, I could edit all again trying to go beyond my current limits.
I started the project for over a year. I feel like it was yesterday. :o

I forgot to put the part 5 and the improved version of the part 1here:


now i must to do the generic, the epilogue and all scenes between the differents parts. I will not post the new scenes on Youtube. The next movie on Youtube will be the entire movie with sound and music. maybe in 480p or 720p if it is not too big. Meanwhile, I'll post some screen shot to show the progress of the work because this will take time.

Hi Marcel, your animations are looking great, no doubt this is all lots of work for just one man but the end result will be very much satisfying. Can't wait to see the final version.
I tried a animation some years ago, looking out of the window of a helicopter, and tried to apply a shaking handycam effect.
I tried to do this frame by frame but it was hard to get a natural look. I recently found a solution to that as an after effect by using VirtualDub (simple but great free video software) and a plug-in called Deshaker. First you load in a shaky video clip, then run the plug-in to extract the shakiness information from that video clip, then load your other video on which you want to apply the shakiness, and render the video. Voilà, there you have it, a video clip as if it was shot with shaky hands. You could apply this effect to your rock scene to make it more dramatic. VirtualDub is also perfect for changing colour or enhancing your video with tons of plug ins, all available on the web.

I don't know how far you are with creating music and sound-effects for your movie but here are some links to useful sound-effects and great music that could come in quite handy for your project:
