SECOND GUIDE OUT!
Well this is kind of late in announcing, but here it is anyway. The second and final guide from me is now out! This one is called
Source Machinima Cinematography.
The other guide, Choreography, focused almost exclusively on animation. This guide covers pretty much everything else involved with making a machinima film in the Source engine. If you want to know exactly how I process everything after I have it animated, this covers all the steps. It covers recording methods, camerawork, audio/video editing, and even some bits on getting ideas and writing scripts. In my opinion, the most valuable parts of this guide are being able to create custom camerawork (which includes slow motion), recording without any dropped frames, and my secret recipe for motion blur. And like the other guide, I didn’t set the price on this, but I did try to make sure it was as thorough as possible.
And for everyone waiting on FM, CP, and the pilot episode, I’m working on them; asking daily about it really has no impact on the production time.
