747-400 The Queen of The Skies movie by the Arkitekt

Recommended Posts

Guest Adeym

Hi guys,I mentioned it sometime ago, and I even made a short teaser movie. But now, finally made from scratch is my latest movie featuring PMDG's stunning 747-400.Anyone who has read my postings and seen my video's know that I am a post production editor, so all my movies are exceptional in quality. This movie has been a challenge to make since the 747 isn't the kindest on FPS, but I think I've done well to keep it as smooth as possible. I've edited this movie on my new matrox hardware and it has made my work so much more creative and easier.Now judge the results for yourself...http://www.fs2004.com/downloads/index.php?dlid=704Sorry about the adverts... click skip to bypass them!Comments always welcomeMore movies are available at my site www.arkitekt.moonfruit.com

Okay I watched it a second time -- I have that airport (LFPG) but where can you get that FlightParis scenery? It looks stunning!

My comment is this .. very professionally done, excellent editing and "special" effects.But what I did not like was blurriness. I was expecting a crisp video. I can see in the cocpkit how slightly out of focus everything is. If this was due to limit the size of the download - I would rather download for twice as long but enjoy sharper video.Michael J.WinXP-Home SP2,AMD64 3500+,Abit AV8,Radeon X800Pro,36GB Raptor,1GB PC3200,Audigy 2http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/747400.jpghttp://www.hifisim.com/images/asv_beta_member.jpg

Thanks for the comments guys...I really wanted to get the quality of video better, but I was working up to a limit of 50MB. I considered bringing down the quality of audio, but too me both are very important.I'm working on getting my own server, so file size limits won't be a problem!

>I'm working on getting my own server, so file size limits>won't be a problem!Not sure how much transfer I have left for this month, but until you get your own web server I should be able to donate some of my space to you. I have 4GB left of my 5GB of web space.I also VERY VERY highly recommend my web host - powweb - as they have done nothing but bend over backwards for me for customer service and their interfaces are VERY easy to use.My sites on that server . . .http://guildofdarkhaven.org/flyinghttp://guildofdarkhaven.orghttp://gothic.guildofdarkhaven.orgNo banners, lots of space and it's 99 bucks a year. if you buy 2 years it's even cheaper. I work with PHP, CSS, MySql and my FTP programs work with the server flawlessly.Hope this helps.

Very nice. For me, some of the strobe effects are a bit overwhelming and the sepia toned, old style scratchy film effect seems out of place stylistically, but that comment only reflects my own personal taste and is not a criticism. I really enjoyed some of the camera angles later on in the movie, particularly the views during takeoff and the last sunset shot. Thanks for sharing! Your reel could qualify you for work with Tallmantz Aviation!

Thanks Chase!Sure! You need to grab yourself a little add-on called Active Camera or another one called IGFly Walk and Follow. They both allow you to view the aircraft from different angles including awesome wing views!Both programs are excellent, and different in some ways. Its worth looking into them :)

Man, you've nailed it.Well done, I loved the sound track as mush as the visuals.I can see this wasn't " thrown" together in five minutes.Tell me please, how long does something like this take?CM,Sydney, Australia.

You can't do this with AC as the wings aren't included in the internal model. Furthermore it is also my understanding that you can't use AC for wingviews with the external model in the way you can with W&F. The developer of AC was supposed to be releasing an update to AC to provide functionality similar to W&F, but it seems this has fallen into the too hard basket. Unfortunately the PMDG developers are also showing no interest in adding wingviews despite many posts on this issue in the PMDG forum. So W&F seems to be only option for wingviews with the PMDG 747 - a pity bceause problems keeping popping up with that addon, the latest being hassles with RXP Garmins.Bruceb

And by "AC" I assume we are speaking of Active Camera?If that is the case, wing views are aircraft dependent, not having anything to do with Active Camera. Whenevr an aircraft has the wings modeled on (like POSKY's) you can walk right back just like the poster stated and just turn the camera to look at the wings.Now this other program maybe adding on wingviews is another story, but if an aircraft ha the wings modeled, then any camera program can see em.As for PMDG, folks have already modeled 2-D "views" that make "wings" . . it will probably not be long at all before someone makes one for the 747. Basically all it does it replace the 2D "RIGHT" and "LEFT" views.

The problem is that the wings aren't modelled so unlike most addons including PMDG's own 737NG there are no wings to be seen from inside the aircraft so Active Camera is no help. The developers maintain that this was necessary in order to preserve FPSs. However, this decision evoked considerable controversy on the PMDG forum as some folks including me would have liked to have had the chance to trade off other features in order to have wingviews. I understand that Walk & Follow rather cleverly enables you to manipulate the external model in spot view to achieve wing views with the PMDG 747 but that it is not possible to do this with Active Camera. No sign of any other way to have wingviews with the PMDG 747 which is a pity because, as you can see from this excellent video, a lot of work has gone into modelling the workings of the wing.Bruceb

Ah okay. See I havn't much experience in that area so I didnt know. Most of my admiring of wingviews come from videos like this. When I am in the sim myself, usually I am so busy in the cockpit that I hardly have time to enjoy the passenger side of life LOL.These videos are bloody awesome, though. Very good stuff. I am going to be spending Thanksgiving Break from college enjoying them and showing my friends what Flight Simulation is like (I have a few friends that ask, but it is so hard to put into words and these are internet buddies, so they cant just coem over and see my at-home simulator I am building).
