Last week I visited a friend of mine, who showed me some footage he created with After Effects. That woke up my curiosity, and I started some research about its capabilities. The feature that made me drool was support for 60 FPS video. I thought of making a high quality version of the trailer before, but that framerate wasn´t supported by the programs I use regularly.
I tried it out, and the result is impressive.
So, the bad news is: there will be no trailer this week. The good news: I´m re-recording all the previous footage in 60 FPS, and I´ll make a high quality version available for download (in addition to the butchered YouTube version). The video size will be 320x240, making it any bigger would distort the pixels.
The original plan for the trailer was to show some updated areas, and some new ones.
I revamped the tiles of some places, with the method I told you last time, and added some new backgrounds. There were places and features that were functional, and now they are also good looking.
This week will be quite slow, since I have some social obligations regarding my birthday. I´m usually not that productive during hangovers. But I´ll do my best to finish the trailer for next week. After all, every new and reworked rooms done for the trailer are also progress for the game.
Have a good week.
