Very impressive look. Pity he used shots that included dropped frames and the sudden appearance of foliage. Buy a better video card =).


I see, even in this machinima from a professional, the SL choppy camera movement won out.

This is unacceptable, especially when every other online game out there doesn't have this problem. What is the deal with that?

Fine, thanks.

Amazing cinematography and editing.

/me pre-orders ticket.

@Melponeme_k: I fear the director may have resorted to a camera that was run using LSL run on the server side. This jerkiness would have been less evident or non-existent had he used a proper joypad or SpaceNavigator to control the camera instead.

A coming-of-age piece with a young child and his Yakuza father? Interesting..


Thank you, Patchouli. I thought there had to be a way to avoid that problem. The SpaceNavigator looks like a good workaround for SL.

Other than the camera snafu, the machinima looks interesting. I'll be waiting for the full release.


@Patchouli @Melponeme_k

He is using flycam. The problem is caused by poor frame rates which means he needs a better video card or a better connection. The jerkiness associated with lsl cameras is continuous. It doesn't start and stop like it does in this film. It's the reason I never use them - even before flycam's introduction. It's definitely a frame rate issue.

Wow! Incredible machinima trailer, can't wait for the full thing (Hopefully with subtitles optionally, otherwise I will have to guess out of context from expressions and actions).

It kind of reminds me of a Final Fantasy scene for some reason though? Not to sound demeaning, final fantasy had some of the best storyline scenes I have ever enjoyed to witness, seeing something even familiar or remind me of such is meant as huge positive feedback.
