  1. Hello, all you Cold Warmongers,

    and thank you for so astonishing feedback, which is capable of making man speechless.

    I'm very glad you have liked it and I hope it delivered at least a bit of that excitement I have while working with this great mod and all the talented guys working in the shadows. They deserve the greatest thanks.

    Best regards,


    P.S. I must apologize for letting James spy on you in such way, AlekseiGuba. But we thought it would be best not to ask your permission to sneak around your mansion, as you probably would have just shot him on sight (and us) anyway. I hope Angelina is doing fine, though.

  2. @Pete: Oh, now I see how you did it! Very cool! I must definitively try out some green screens/cubes. Have you experienced best results with blue colour however?

    Yeah, go for it! With chroma keying and a little bit of imagination, you will have a nice weaponry to express your ideas in videos.

    I've found blue colour to fit my needs just well, so I can't actaully say, if blue colour is better, or would green colour have some advantages over blue.

    I'm sure you'll get the hang of it, but in case you would like to hear any advices, feel free to PM me.

  3. @Pete - It was a moving, silly video as you said yourself ;) - im just in awe of all your great little movie tricks! I need to learn them one day. Just a quick question though - these moving camera/dolly scenes inside the Skoda when the police car pulls up, is it simply camera.sqs dollied slowly backwards, or attached to any object?

    Many thanks for your kind comments regarding the silly movie, Stuntman (someone has been reading the comments section? :o).

    That particular scene you are referring, is a combination of two different camera scripts:

    1. A camera moving backwards in an empty alley. No Skoda and the boys in this one, just the police car. No attached objects in camera.sqs.

    2. A camera moving forwards towards the stationary Skoda, which is placed inside a "blue cube", through the windshield and towards the rear window. Also, no attached objects in this script.

    These two takes are then composited together and the blue color is removed from the Skoda take. If you watch the Into the Abyss film, you can see the same technic used in the scene in which the Luftwaffe is flying over the town. I did it in the same exact way, just the direction of the moving cameras is different.


  4. Hello,

    After sneaking and lurking around here since day one and Operation Flashpoint demo CD-ROM, it's high time I started to think about my first post here. This is one of the short movies I've been working with, originally filmed about a year ago. It's a bit long, but I hope you will find it interesting enough to sit through it.

    Best regards,
