Has anyone figured out the "best" method for using this on a PS3? I saw the question has been asked a few times over the years, but I didn't see a real concrete answer...
I have my intro rendering as we speak - for the second time around... I goofed and made it into 600 jpeg images the first time around, and couldn't remember what program was recommended to "stitch" them into a movie (didn't have time to scan back through 20 pages that I already read...).

Anyway - has anyone found a simple way to integrate this into the movie watching experience on a PS3?
EDIT: I know how to get them on the PS3 and make them play... I'm just wondering if anyone has found a way to create some sort of smooth transition between the intro and the movie..

Would also be interested..

Here is the plan I have come up with - I'll try it out tonight and see how it works... It will require some setup, but I think that it will have the right effect for when I have people over to watch a movie:
Step 1: Burn some intro clips and the intro logo to a CD.
Step 2: Set up Harmony 1100 remote to have an activity called "Watch Movie with Intro" - set it to turn on DVD player, tv, AVR, and PS3 - add buttons to: switch AVR input to the "PS3" input; control the DVD player; and control DVD player power.
Step 3: Run the activity and get things started before guests arrive - preferably while the popcorn is popping and they are getting drinks at the bar. Start the movie on PS3 and pause it at the start of movie, switch AVR to the input for the DVD player.
Step 4: People come in for the movie - start up the DVD player to play the intro sequences - at the end hit the button to switch to the PS3/play PS3/power down DVD.

I can't really come up with another method that would work as relatively smooth as that method... playing them off the PS3 hard drive is fine - but when you go to play the Blu-Ray it still has to load and go through the menus, so it isn't nearly as smooth.

I agree; two separate players are likely necessary (with the BR movie "booted up" and standing by in pause mode)

When I finish rendering, I find the letter 't' flickering throughout the movie, in case I use 't' in any text. It happens only with 't'. Help please...

Much appreciated W84No1. It is rendering now and has been for days. Its looking V V good though.

I have opened another blend file while my project was mid rendering. The new file opened. Have I lost the part completed project or is it recoverable from somewhere. I am so mad at myself.
post #581 of 602
Hi there! hope you can help me. I have already gone a lot of research on how to change the background on my customize 20th century fox animation. I would like to have a all green/blue background. Can you guys help me with this? And if you guys already had a template in blender with plain background would like to ask a copy.

Would much appreciate your help guys. Thanks in advance,

Hi all,

Haven't done one of these for a while but made one today. Problem is, Windows Media Player won't play the AVi file. VLC plays it just fine but WMP says it's not a valid file.

Of course, this also means that Movie Maker also won't read the file so I can't add in the audio to make my video like I normally do.

I'm using Blender 2.42a because I couldn't find the normal options in the new version. But I don't think that would explain the problem.

Any help would be great.
post #583 of 602
Well, I was able to use Divs to convert the AVI to a divx file and then rename it back to an AVI and now WMP and movie maker read it fine. No idea what the problem was.


Anyway, one question about the FOX logo. On my laptop, I don't have a Slash key on the keypad so how do I unhide all the stuff before I render it? I don't recall the steps from a few years back when I made my last one of these.

I tried doing the FUnction + Slash from the number pad on the normal keyboard but that didn't seem to work.

Thanks.

For those who are still looking for a DTS audio track. See 3 posts below because of the spam security (I had to have at least 3 posts)

Ripped it from a MKV file and trimmed it down to 20 seconds.

the link is broken and not working
post #589 of 602
Link still works for me. You have to wait a 20 to 40 seconds before the download starts.

Just wondering if anybody has made a fox logo lately. I did one the other day using the same template that I used a long time ago, but this time I wanted to create an HD version. It worked fine but for some reason the spotlights in the foreground and next to the words now spin all the way around instead of just shining in the air and rotating a little side to side. Is there a way to fix this to make them not spin 360 degrees around?
post #593 of 602
eagleayaz, I'm having the same trouble with the letter 'T'. It looks torn. I'm using version 2.62, are you? I'm going to try and earlier version and see if that helps.
post #594 of 602
I went to the archives for Blender but does anyone know how to install an older version? I don't see an install file.
Thanks
post #595 of 602
My bad. I figured it out. Working too many hours maybe :-)

This is very easy.
Select the text with the "t" inside with right click. Then press "ALT + C" and select the second entry "Mesh from Curve/Meta/Surf/Text".
This will solve your flicker problem smile.gif
But you habe to re-render your intro again.
post #597 of 602
Thanks Nordlicht, and sorry for the late response. I'll give it a try soon.
