[REL/FF7] JordieBo's Opening Credits
« on: 2011-08-30 13:50:45 »
Probably not high in the demands list for FFVII mods but it had to be done eventually. Here's an updated opening credits scene for Final Fantasy VII.

I've made a few versions, one slightly more true to the original, and some others just because I can.
Oh and I've chosen to use quite a simple font for the text as it looks a lot more true to the original than anything fancy.

Version 1

Version 2

Version 3

All installation instructions are in the README

I'd fade the red text/logo a bit, and implement the lights/shadows from the original. good texture.

Right, how's this?



P.S. I've just finished adding my own font for the text so no permission from DLPB needed.

a bit more fade, in the range of 2-5%, and get rid of the drop shadow. It's looking great.

I dunno, I quite like the drop shadow. Here's a comparison:

Without drop shadow



With drop shadow



Thoughts?

Oh and I darkened the font/symbol a tad. I also faded it like you said, but I never realised there was actually a fade feature. I've always just duplicated the layer and applied a Gaussian Blur to the lower layer.

Of course you can use my text.  Just credit me and thats cool.

And thank you! Although I've done some text now anyway. I might just release two versions, for personal preference.

really by fade i just meant make the text/logo layer like 50% opacity :P. it looks a bit bland without the drop shadow, thoe the drop shadow is too sharp. i'd leave the shadow off, but make the text etc a tad darker to separate it from the rest, OR add a dark glow shadow (drop shadow in every direction) very small, and subtle

Right, I'm getting slightly frustrated with myself cause I can't seem to work out a way to make it work! So I'm just going to release several versions and adaptations and people can choose what they like!

Here's a more grungey version I tried



I'll update the first post now in a minute.

You did good!
I've included options to install your mods in the next version of Bootleg.
I fancy the dark version.

What's your next project?
MORE MORE MORE . . .

Aha! Lovely  ;D Well I haven't quite decided yet, I was looking at possibly doing a few retextures, I was looking those cards used by the Joker-like monster you find near Kalm, mainly because it looks easy and I can get away with putting it in my Graphics coursework  ;)

-----EDIT-----
Okay, apparently it's called Joker and it's found nowhere near Kalm, haha
