Hybrid Machinima is the combination of standard Machinima tools like WoW Model Viewer, Map Viewer etc. but also created alongside 3D Editing software such as 3DS Max, Maya etc.
Thats right folks Warcraft Final Fantasy Style 7 Part 1 is out so kick back, relax and enjoy!
The story now follows the path of the Warrior Orson, the first minute is a quick recap of where our hero is since he hasnt appeared since Warcraft Final Fantasy Style 4 and for any newcomers to the series they will have a vague understanding as to whats happened (Kind of!). After the quick reminder you will now follow Orsons path and bear witness to the difficulties that lie ahead for our fearless hero. You will also begin to learn more about him, though on the outside he may come off as the gentle giant like all of the heroes within this series he also harbours a dark secret.
This video took far more effort than all my other Machinima movies since I was using 3DS Max to create my own custom animations. Learning the software basics, setting up the models and animating them is insanely demanding of ones time and can be incredibly frustrating!. Yes I am aware there are errors with the models such as slight equipment differences, E.g, Arkon Soldiers from the Model Viewer have larger bracers and boots whereas those animated within 3DS Max dont have those on and of course Im sure you can tell the models animated within 3DS Max LOOK different as well, thats due to lighting and shadow settings which I still need to look into!. So I will be learning to overcome those flaws for part 2 so please bear with those errors for now J!
Also a big thanks to the creators of Grandia II, their animations are brilliant. Demon Slice (Tornado) Mega Elixer animation (Healing Sphere) and Fury Of The Phoenix (Firey Birds) graphics are the property of the creators of Grandia II, full credit to it's creation is theirs.
