Finally! The project which was started at a time before any sci fi addons... before SketchUp imports... maybe even the first space travel story told at Moviestorm (and at least 3 commercial/teasers later)- the second chapter of Athena Project is released!

(...This vid is proof that simple modding is within everyone's reach!)

I hope you all have a look... feel free to comment in this thread.

(I've included a brief intro to bring anyone into the story. A look at the first chapter isn't needed, but might be fun to see how far Moviestorm has come as a program!)

Nicely done! The difference between the two episode are amazing! And I love the robots! Reminds me of my old Mechanisms series.

I agree, the difference is amazing... Moviestorm has improved a great deal in that time!

...the synch problems are resolved... sorry for the difficulties I caused!

Here is the new link!

Just watched the Youtube version in HD. So much is missed on the moviestorm res. from the textures in the walls to the specular highlighting inside of the '1234' character :-)
A cool touch showing the scar when he was awake, post production blur was fun too. The pace was a little slow for me but it got interesting as things got complicated.
Ah, waiting for 'chapter 3' Take us to earth soon! :-)

I like the TTS voices of the robots. :-) Manually Editing the intonation and timing of the voice wav files is a bit tricky but it can still work somewhat.
I had a go at using TTS fully a year ago in moviestorm ( here's a demo of one of the scenes: After 1 year ago, so much more is possible....

making spaceship interiors would be fun, because anything is possible... Your interior was cool in it's simplicity. I liked some of the props you used, it would make a 60s drwho set proud ;-)

cool stuff :-)

laugh.gif Tree and Sisch, I stand guilty on all counts!!!

All, very astute observations, Tree... I enjoyed your link, as well... having worked with the TTS voice, I know it's got its own challenges (and I'm ashamed to say my robots are WAY better VAs than I am!).

Sisch, every time in the past year I decided to get a little work done on my series (having accomplished 2 episodes, I think I can call it a "series"? laugh.gif ), Moviestorm came out with something that I wanted to fit into what I had already done... and the inclusion of SketchUp had me toss out an almost completed chapter 2... so (along with participating in a few contests), it took a long while to get motivated again!

Thanks very much for watching!

"Athena Project: Chapter 2" has had quite a few decent reviews!

Have a look, "havalookers"! (My first movie to make it to the "Featured Movies" page! Huzzah!)

I also want to thank everyone who has watched!
