    Most of the basic postprocessing (everything that isn't color correction), such as vignetting, was done with the new features of Vegas Pro 9.

    I'd say yes!

    I didnt find the story plot very interesting, it was alright but doesn't hook the viewers in. it was more of a 'show off my fx' thing, no offense. good voice acting and dialog though. as well as camera work to maintain the eerie feeling.

    The most well-made video I've ever seen.

    I felt the same way about Requiem for a Dream than I did about this - It wasn't that the movie was enjoyable to watch (Requiem was not enjoyable simply because of how depressing and brutally graphic it was), it was that the movie was so incredibly well-made that you HAD to give it credit and enjoy it.

    Edit:
    For anyone who hasn't seen Requiem for a Dream (You HAVE heard the theme song), watch it. It's fantastic.

    The voice acting sounded perfect to me for a character who just suicided, apathetic with alittle sarcasm.

    Your talent for effects... oh my.

    Have you ever had compatiability issues with Vegas Pro? Can you export video in 16:10? I'm using Adobe Premiere and it's giving me all sorts of issues, wondering if it's worth using Vegas.

    Just a trivial question, how much total memory do you have and how much is occupied? I'm at around 800GB used/1.9TB total(mostly Fraps video I'm never going to use).

    Very impressive. The video has a 1980s horror movie feel to it. loved the effects, loved them! What program you use to implement them into your video? Furthermore with the first video you create a very well set up warm/creepy feeling I loved with the cabin and all that. Hard to explain but you made the cabin feel warm. This video makes me wonder about after you die, that's a good thing. Lastly, you goth?

    Sony Vegas Pro 9.0b for everything, except the motion blur, done in After Effects with Reelsmart.

    Lastly, you goth?
    I'm not goth, I'm not emo, I'm probably just a bit pessimistic.

    Edited:

    Oh, and, I don't remember who requested that, but here's the list of the files (around 50 gigabytes total)

    You're a hella good scriptwriter, editor, and movie maker.
    At your age, hell, you're going to to be famous. (that's if you go serious and do some real movies)
    Great movie, 5/5.

    Good news everyone

    Ghosts is going to be broadcasted on a French over-IP television channel (and not a small / insignificant one either: roughly one quarter of the country has access to it) on Monday 29th, around 7.30pm (after all the regular shows are over).

    I'm currently re-editing the master (good thing I kept all the files) to add French subtitles, the "rating" (not recommended for age 10 and below), and all the other stuff required by our local variant of the FCC (if I'm not mistaken).

    Thanks to everyone here, on Facepunch, for making that feat possible :)

    Wow that's awesome. How'd you get it on the channel? Did someone contact you? Anyways, I'm surprised you didn't need to personally get the rights to the soundtrack from NIN

    There's no need to have the rights to the soundtrack as it's licensed under Creative Commons BY NC SA, and these three are respected (there are no ads on the channel)

    Epic, but the storyline was not too prominent. This was more of a "My use of effects and post-processing beats yours" kind of movie. It's all too obvious because you're flying the camera everywhere for the first half of the movie, then it gets into the story again, which was confusing and not fully explained. I said "Ok, what the hell is going on?" often. The first part was just him walking through a bunch of worlds, then he meets a guy, then all of a sudden he's running from monsters or whatever those were. You left us too much to infer, and you could have done a MUCH better job explaining what was happening in the story.

    However I must say, your use of effects and cinematics was very admirable. The color correction was flawless, and the ending was phenomenal. The voice acting was also a plus. The ingame effects combined with post processing was amazing. The opening and ending sequences seemed professional.

    Bottom line: This movie had great effects and angling, but it didn't seem to focus on the storyline, and I think that is what you intended it to be. Try to focus on the story a little more, and have more hints about what's going on!

    7/10.

    Oh, also, subscribed, because you're capable of great movies.

    I, um, see.

    My motto is "if you're going to even have a storyline try to focus on it" but the storyline apparently was not what he was aiming for. I'm not changing my rating, because personally, I enjoy movies that focus on the story, and I'm sure others do too.

    Max should make a movie that DOES focus on the storyline, I would love to see it.

    I agree, effects were great, story wasn't. There was a lot of camera moving and my roomate said the camera tracking made him feel sick. If this were a real movie it would obviously be highly unsuccessful due to the lack of story and a lot of it was a little bit dry aside from some of the awesome visuals. For a GMOD movie, it's one of the favorites here on FP. As I seen the beginning of this came pretty close to looking like a real movie (aside from the GMOD graphics) Any chance we'll see some real fighting or action in your future movies, Max? I know the running around camera swaying, dialogue is your thing. I'm interested in seeing how you handle some intense shit, though. I want to see car crashes, people doing flips, helicopters being taking down by cars, I want to see friggin Die Hard in Gmod.

    Die Hard isn't a B action movie, it's about as good as Terminator 2 and Rambo but I see what you mean. What is going to make this one better than GHOSTS, though? Did you have anything new in mind for it that you would like to share?

    what's going to make it better is that there won't be cameras flying around randomly for 50 seconds straight
