In The Hall [Animated] (1995), trueSpace 2

Post by Poikilos »

This is a set of videos that I made in 1995 and only have because they were on a VHS tape. It is just a set of animations, mostly demonstrating features of trueSpace 2. PGS (the animated logo at the beginning) stands for Power Graphics Station, the made up production company name from when I was under 18.

Years later, I decided to remake the ship in Blender and use it in a WIP remaster of pylaga. You can see them by clicking on the "bship" and "cship" images at the following link:

[unreleased] 2015-10-30
- Transfer from VHS using Panasonic Consumer DVD Recorder DMR-EZ485V
- Replace music with public-licensed music (The video also goes along with In The Hall of the Mountain King by Edvard Grieg, not included, but the new song seems to make more sense for a random set of scenes. The title "In The Hall" still makes some sense since it ends with a curtain).
- Add credits.

How I Made This
  • The warping animations were done using animated deformation lattices.
  • The paint on the floor for the blob becoming a circle was done using trueSpace 2's 3D paintbrush tool (the projection paint tool). There is also face paint such as in the PGS animation at the beginning.
  • The funnel and fluid was not an actual water simulation. It was done using deformation lattices.
  • The water under the crocodile-like humanoid monster was done with animating the bump map or animating some bump map setting.
  • The 2D warping and transitions were done using Ulead MediaStudio Pro 5 or so.
