Help Request - Intro Video
« on: July 08, 2008, 06:17:15 am »
If you check out my thread you can see the theme of my project. I would like to produce an intro video for my skin which I am currently working on for Maximus Arcade.

I am planning on having a loading screen with the usual loading bar which then boots into the Marvel films comic book flicker after which it displays the Marvel Logo, however then I would like the word "Arcade" in the fonts i am using slapped down from the top and maybe a noise like a thump as it hits the page.

Could anyone help me with this? Even if I don't achieve all of this any of it would be great! I assume you can just use the Marvel comic flicker directly from a Marvel film like X-men or Hulk.

It would really help to finish of my skin and take it to the next level!!!

I might be able to rip that video from a DVD of mine.  I will try and let you know.

He doesn't want it just ripped. Most of us can do that. He wants the word ARCADE under the Marvel logo as well.

Thanks for the help guys! :notworthy:

The font is an arcade one I picked up from DaFont, will find the name tonight!

If you check my thread you can see that the files are available to download.

I will also make the LOGO available for download too tonight so if it is possible you can take the "Arcade" part from that.

Any help is really appreciated no matter how small or big!

This will really help the overall look and feel of the project.

I need to bust out Premiere and see what I can do. I tried it with a different program and the results stunk.

Thanks for the try anyway! Would it be possible to see it?

Your standard of "stunk" may be my standard of "awesome" ;D

No, it was just a quick and dirty run at it. Not usuable.

You should just have the intro that all the marvel movies do...all the pages that flip by then transition into the Marvel logo...

You might be able to rip that intro, Use some form of video editing software that will still frame the last frame of the orignal intro, then fade in the text "Arcade" splice the two together.

Might work.  Hell, I think just having the Marvel Movie intro would be kick arse enough.

I quickly made something for you.  I will send you the link in the morning.  Are you going to post the photoshop files for your artwork in your other thread?

Easy enough mistake to make.

Beanboy has also produced a fantastic start for me!!! Hope you got my PM  ;)

Once it all comes together it should kick some serious a-hole!
