It’s that time of year again. In front yards and windows everywhere, skeletons and tombstones are appearing. It’s no different at Moviestorm. Our annual Halloween pack this year is The Graveyard, perfect for those spooky scenes. Now the dead can rise from the grave to terrorise the living - or make them laugh. It’s your call - you’re the director!



As you’d expect, the Graveyard pack includes a selection of gravestones, a church, and a gatehouse. including Graveyard Grass, some tree silhouettes, and a backdrop, as well as customisable skeletons and stock characters. There are animations for getting your characters to start in the grave so they can rise, and a set of suitably terrified responses for your humans. And, as a finishing touch, we’ve included a neat little raven, with all the animations required to fly, squawk, and peck at things.

If you don’t want to go to the trouble of creating your own graveyard, there’s a ready-made diorama so you can get filming in moments. The graveyard pack includes all the content from the old Photostorm Bones pack, slightly updated so it works better with Moviestorm 1.4.

Get it now for just 500 points - or rent it for a month for only 50 points. Visit the marketplace, or hit Get More Content when you start Moviestorm.

For the ultimate Halloween thriller, combine the Graveyard with our previous Halloween packs: our 2008 pack includes traditional trick or treat items and spooky furniture, and our 2009 packs featured a huge selection of customisable male and female monster heads.

I've just been raving about this one on another thread. It's so raveworthy that I could not pass up the chance to rave about it again. Eleven out of ten, definitely smile.gif

The raven is beautiful! I've forgotten something basic, though: how do we direct it once its in flight?

If its the same as the bat and cars, you scub along the timeline to the point in its movement path where you want to changes its direction, then:

1) Hold Shift and left click to drag it left or right of its original path

2) Hold ctrl and left click to rotate it

daleh, thanks! It's been way too long since I've made a movie. When the swordfighting shows up, I'll be out of excuses.

Uh, one more question: How do I make the raven go up and down? I went and played the flying saucer video to see if that had the answer:

But it doesn't.

I love the way we can control glide and wing flap. I have visons of winged people now...

When you make a flight path for the bird scrub in and on pc hold shift and ctrl while left clicking and holding on the bird, you can then drag it up and down wink.gif

Hope the Moviestorm guys don`t mind but I did a little promo video showing off this magnificent creature, check it out here biggrin.gif

I hope you guys can release more animals because this one is great. Oh yeah and the new features in this pack are great too laugh.gif

kv, thanks! I did some more experimenting, and on the mac, holding shift-command works. Makes beautiful flight paths!

And nice little movie!

I don't see the pack in the download list when I go to "Get More Content". Halloween 2009 is there and Halloween (which is showing as installed already on my PC) but is that just the Photostorm version?

<EDIT> Its OK it started downloading anyway wink.gif </EDIT>
