Back in 2012 (holy monkey balls that’s 3 years ago) we put out a call for gameplay/progress footage for us to use in a showcase video. That video never materialised as a release-video, but I did put together a simple mashup of the games there were submitted:
I’d like to try this again. Sort of the video-equivalent to the monthly showcase. Maybe it could be a quarterly thing.
Looking for showcase footage
I will be making a simple, unceremonious mashup video of projects developed in jMonkeyEngine. Anything from early prototypes to released projects is welcome. The only requirement is that something graphical is going on on-screen. Depending on the amount of footage I get, I might make two videos: One for mature projects and one for “cool stuff we’re tinkering with”.
What I need from you
Record a 20 second .avi/.mp4/.mov video – We recommend the Simple Way.
No sound please.
Make it no less than 720p (1280×720 pixels).
You can go higher resolution, but please stick with the same 16:9 aspect ratio.
You may do some pre-editing of your own, e.g. to conflate some different action shots.
Reply to this topic, following the Application Template below.
You may post multiple projects (looking at you @ndebruyn). Just do it in separate replies.
Application Template - Please include:
Your real first name (full name optional), and any teammates’ names.
Your forum nickname.
Your project’s name.
Your project’s status (prototyping, beta, released etc.)
A link to download your video
Please use common services like Google Drive or Dropbox. If you’d rather not share your file in public, you can send it to email@example.com, but please still create a reply here, or else I might lose track of your project).
3 pictures depicting your progress thus far.
Optional: Link(s) to your project (one main link and any other you’d like to share)
What is the deadline?
Tentative deadline is 6. September 2015.
Can I submit footage of “tooling”?
As long as it’s made with or directly integrated with jME somehow, yes, absolutely.
It just may be that some people are going back to university, and are busy with the beginning of the school year and dont check the forum often. Im sure if you send a few pms around to some of the project authors that you’ll get some responses. Im excited for this video, as the last video uploaded to the jmonkey youtube page was 3 years ago.
