Just added a space after https, hopefully this works.

I got it It skips in the middle for me each time it runs after put into the game, perhaps your upload is a bit corrupted:

(happens at 5 seconds in)
(only when played in the game)

I tried redownloaidng, same thing happens, i can play it outside of teh game fine, with no skips, but once in the game it skips like in the above video
@hhyyrylainen any idea what that might be happening?


Maybe the engine can’t handle it? How big was the last intro in MB?


It was around 10 megabytes. That video you posted is bigger than the entire thrive release itself.

Edit: I re-encoded your video with a reasonable bitrate and it is now 6.5 megabytes and plays fine (at least for me, @Untrustedlife hasn’t checked yet).


Ha! Ah well, 200 MB is quite large.

plays fine for me now :slight_smile:

Do we have your go-ahead to put it in the game?


Are you talking to me or hhyyrylainen?

(Untrustedlife) #30

I was asking you loony.


Oh, go right ahead.



From the feedback and suggestions about that possible new intro video I posted, I finally sat down and figured out how to make the DNA, well, messier. I’m gonna try one more thing, and see where that takes me, so look out for a final-ish version in a few days.

Looking good! Perhaps this would be better posted in the old thread, though, and not as its own?

This looks great! Just remember to use a Fresnel (essentially edge glow) shader.


You mean like a glow around the edges of the frame?

(Δф - Delta Phi) #37

A glow around the edges of the DNA.
I’ve linked a page above on how it is used, but it should be fairly simple for every graphics pipeline.


“should be fairly simple for every graphics pipeline”
So, uhhhhhhhhhh, funny story there. I have no idea how to do that with my specific program and renderer, and I’m like 5 days in to my current render thing and it’s at 75% done. So I think I’ll just let it finish and maybe look at it again later.

Here’s the new version. It doesn’t have that edge glow, but a few things have been changed up. It’s also still massive, so you’re gonna have to shrink it again.

What editing program do you use to make video files so giant in memory hogging?
