Fortress Forever movie: Love it, or hate it

The past weeks I worked on a Fortress Forever movie because school was done I thought I would show the world again what FF is all about All the footage I recorded is from ff pickups on #ff.pickup quakenet, there are some people claiming this is the best FF movie made, but there arenít that much So I donít claim to be the best but one of the best Also the music I used is originally from Illusion and are called DJ sets If you donít like it its your opinion but I like it and its my movie so I donít care if you donít.
Anyway I would like to see some constructive critics and not just like you didnít added graphical content etcÖ I donít use 3Dmax and I NEVER will

The emotional side in this movie is pure love for the game, I think you also should take this into account, its not a epic movie but also no crap movie, people should be interested in the emotional side before watching (There are quite parts, they are made to think about the concept)

In the end I want to add that I only want to give an impression of FF how it is meant to be played and not as in public servers etc... that scares people off tbh hehe

Anyway here is the download link! (a Divx and a avi format)
http://213.251.133.127/fortmovie/

The stream !!

Enjoy !!!

And greets to all the guys who participated in this movie ! really I love you guys

Thx to Rawh to use his ftp server !

That was AWESOME! The only thing that kinda caught me off guard was the audio transitions into other songs was kinda off, but other than that, it is action packed, showed some key good parts of the game. I'm definitely glad to have watched this!

Actually, it sounds almost as if there are a few seconds of silence between each song. You know how to fade out and into other songs? I think that might be a better idea as far as audio goes, and maybe shorten the end of the clip a bit because there are about 20 seconds of just music. If you want, I can see if I can help with this. It's a great video, I just don't want people to get too critical about it and not get the emotional side of it.

Just had a quick look through now and a few things jump out at me. I have no idea your experience with editing movies together (I don't have much myself) so I'm not claiming to be 'right', but I have a couple of thoughts.


The main issue this avi has is that it's too long, showing similar clips to similar music. Some of the plays were quite nice, but some weren't as good, if you were to remove those and trim down some of the longer plays you tend to end up with a nice neat 'palette' of clips to choose from. With less clips to choose from I find it easier to then match the visuals to the audio (which sadly did not work for me - I just didn't think the music had enough balls). Syncing those two are a must if you are to improve. (imo)

Lack of crossfades stuck out at me also. I like them, I think they're pretty. Also I guess they help the video 'flow' better as it stops the clips switching quite so suddenly.

A visual indicator of flag pickup is something that can be helpful to people watching. However, it's probably more trouble than it's worth.

~6:50 the music suddenly cutting off to silence looks awkward. Though I liked the slow-down section just before it (however what does that first clip show during it??).


Once again, I think if you shortened the avi down and put more thought into combining the music with the visuals, perhaps adding a few crossfades then it would look somewhat cooler. Good fun to watch though.

Great video, really good work

I am noticing something about the different FF videos that come out...in some parts, you can't see a damn thing. I dunno if it's just the video quality, the players personal settings or what, but the game is so damn dark, it's hard to even tell who's shooting where and why. I understand where and why, but to the people who google it trying to find out more about FF, they aren't going to necessarily understand where and why.

solid video although it looks like alot of the moves were done in pubs with barely any defence to stop you. like no demoman or SG, just a crappy soldier trying to stop you.

then again i guess you would need leagues to get footage like that

I will say that it's not badly done, especially if this is your first one. I will drop you some advice in PM. I learned quite a bit in the past month, while I was working on the 2fort video.

It's all from pickups, apparently. Maybe 2v2s?

Never knew bunnyhopping looked so stupid in FF, it's as if they don't jump at all

Other than that I guess it's a good video. I'm kind of a sucker for fancy filters and effects, so was hoping there'd be more of that.
