But how did you do it? Is it an actual picture, or did your 3-D skills jump up buy like x100^32?!

Also, can we expect some of the cinimatics to look like this 8)

(graphic wise/layout wise with the discription)


Looking forward for "next day's pic" from Cooper ;D

well my 3D skills are now good enough to make my friends think that I have a trap door in my front porch, but I have learned what makes 3D look real. Compositing 3D onto real images, placing the camera the same distance away from the subject in the 3D scene as the picture. So basically I got a new program that allows me to composite video, and it will be used for some cutscene cinimatics(think EXPLOSIONS). If any of you have the chance to get Magix Music Maker 2005 deluxe for less than $20 its a great deal.

Wow, so that isnt a picture? Thats very cool, i cant wait :>

So are the cinimatics like this too?

And i wouldnt expect to see visuals like this in anything more than cinimatics/pictures right?

actually, that picture is 100% real. It was 11:30pm and I needed a quick picture. Cooper usually signs in at 5:00pm so we should be able to decode his next picture by 6:00pm. Then next picture will blow you away, as well as bring in a bit more plot.

Edit.. As of now, the ingame cinematics are not quite that real, but you will have to see for yourself.

He is using an encrypted connection with a sattlite phone so the GNV cannot decode, or detect his transmissions. That is worse than my connection(dial down.)
