About This File

COLORFUL is a complete and coherent high quality graphic set, around a unique design.¬†Made with love in France. I hope you like it !¬†ūüėė
Here are planned development axes:COLORFUL_logo_multi.thumb.png.36d5861df88ca0f7ad23b54cf31c180e.png

  • COLORFUL Theme :¬†The main hub, a unique interface for BigBox.
  • COLORFUL Platform Video :¬†Complete 4K video set, with a unique design.
  • COLORFUL Source :¬†(soon)¬†To involve the community in the platform video creation.
  • COLORFUL BigBox Startup Video : (soon)
  • COLORFUL Startup Theme : (soon)
  • COLORFUL Pause Theme : (soon)

On this page we are talking about COLORFUL Platform Video Set:
A complete new series of platform video for our frontend!
Colorful is a modern and elegant way to present each platform, with its hardware of the time. With maximum accuracy and future proof. (4K video) 

I will make a first batch of 65 systems, according to my personal use.
But we are far from covering any game system!
If the community doesnt take over the creation, 2 choices:   the project stops  /or/  I finish it.
Problem, creating these videos takes a loooooot of time. And I have to deal with a full-time CGI artist job and 2 young kids.
So I opened a Patreon page that could allow me to dedicate days on my work time to continue creating video.
I'm not trying to get rich, but like everyone else, I cant spend 1 day/week working for free! I hope you understand.
If the project interests you: Here is my Patreon page.

Obviously, Colorful is a direct legacy of my previous video set "Nostalgia". But improved on all aspects:

  • Centred design with¬†colorful background, according to the platform.¬†(theme/logo/box/design)
  • 4K video (3840x2160px) @ 30fps (MP4 H264¬†AAC)
  • Only available in 16:9, but design compatible with 4:3
  • All designs are completly rebuilt.
  • More care of details.
  • More TV variety and better accuracy.
  • Arcade cabinet fully made in CGI, by myself. More variety and better accuracy.
  • Added characteristic effect on CRT TV.
  • Added platform boot screen. (if existing)
  • All sources will be available. (Community effort!)

Initially, I was thinking of working in H265, more modern for 4K. But after talking with Jason, this is problematic on some old configuration and with Windows Media Player, which does not support it.
So, I will leave you the choice!
There will be 3 formats. But to simplify maintenance, there will only be one available here. (The recommended one) Others will be available for download on EmuMovies FTP.

  • 4K | 3840x2160 | mp4 h264 AAC¬†¬†recommended
  • 4K | 3840x2160 | mp4 h265¬†AAC
  • HD | 1920x1080 | mp4 h264 AAC¬† (for small resolution screen)


Yes, all sources will be available on a dedicated page. (soon)  Everyone can create their own videos that will be included here, in this set. 
Some rules to follow:
  - Advertise on this thread which platform you want to achieve.
  - Post the work in progress on the same thread, for exchange/feedback.
  - Post the final video + sources on the same thread or by MP. To avoid scattering and centralize everything here.
  - I will moderate the general quality of your proposals for a coherent result.
So, I acting like a modertor on this thread.
