About This File

# WHAT IS IT ?
COLORFUL is a complete and coherent high quality graphic set, around a unique design. Made with love in France. I hope you like it ! 😘
Here are planned development axes:

COLORFUL_Banner_v2.thumb.jpg.fed9b06df75df2a59326dc522e4b2af0.jpg

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

# HERE IS COLORFUL PLATFORM VIDEO SET:
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 NEED YOUR HELP PATREON ?
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.

Colorful_video_set_detail_by_viking.thumb.png.7dae58fccf97422fecda2c114aea0409.png# IN DETAIL ?
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)
  • HD video (1920x1080px) @ 30fps (MP4 H264 AAC)
  • Only available in 16:9, but design compatible with 4:3 crop.
  • 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 soon. (Community effort!)

# ABOUT CODEC FORMAT ?
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 doesn't support it.
So, I will leave you the choice!

  • 4K | 3840x2160 | mp4 h264 AAC 
  • 4K | 3840x2160 | mp4 h265 AAC   (only on EmuMovies FTP)
  • HD | 1920x1080 | mp4 h264 AAC

 - On this download page = Only 4K - h264
 -
On Download theme videos tools = both, 4K + HD version
 -
On EmuMovies FTP = The 3 versions!

# A PREVIEW OF ALL THIS ?

Colorful_video_set_by_viking.thumb.jpg.d611cb3280cc2f0a2f470b30a179b966.jpg
# A COMMUNITY EFFORT ? 
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.

Do you want to participate? Cool !! I post soon a guideline tutorial !

Absolutely LOVE the look and style! I just got started with LaunchBox 2 days ago so forgive me if this should be obvious: what is the purpose of the little animated up/down arrows at the bottom right of most screens? I can't figure out how to scroll them or if they're supposed to scroll at all? :D Like I said, newb here. Thanks again for the fantastic theme!

I was wondering the same thing. If they have no use, I would rather they are not there.

If it turns out to be a feature you don't need or use, you can just delete those GIFs from the theme folder too.

Thx !
The small arrows are there to signify the direction of the Platforms or the Games Wheel scroll. Some themes are horizontal, others vertical.
There may be some different direction in Colorful.

The simplest solution, yes! 👍

Yes, Arcade playlists are planned. But as I realize all arcade cabinet in 3D (CGI), it's a BIG job! Please be patient 😃

HUGE fan of this! Any chance of some of the game launchers being made such as epic and steam?

Yes, it is planned. Based on Windows video. This is why I worked on the boot of Windows 10 video. 😃

This may be a bit OCD, but is there a way I can go about swapping the videos from the SNES (EU) gameplay in the platform video to SNES (USA) version? I prefer the Super Mario World, Super Metroid, etc. that is the EU video, vs. the Killer Instinct.  I'm happy to do this on my own.

Ah that's great, thank you! But for the moment, I have too much to do with the new videos to think of remaking the one already put online
But really, thank you very much, it's a great step !!! You have less known hardware, I'm interested!

Yes, I took the EmuMovies video snaps. I put all of my sources online. You can modify them with AfterEffect for example.

With the SEGA GENESIS video (so requested!)
I hope that you will like. 😃

SEGA GENESIS (v.1)

The color code will be added to the theme in the next update. If you want to add it right now manually, here it is: #c23b2c

rEffect for example.

 

Thanks for this! 

I opened the After Effects file and was able to swap out the EMU movie for the other one.  The one issue I have is that that the SNES startup sound doesn't play. Even when I open the AES file that was downloaded and preview it (or after it is rendered).

When you open your AES file and preview it do you get that sound? Obviously it worked when you rendered it. When I render it doesn't play either.  

EDIT: Oddly, if I delete and re-add the SNES boot video it plays audio.

I have to echo what everyone else is saying: these videos are stunning. What I especially like about them is that they are not too loud and flashy, perfect for browsing.

I'd like to add my request to your no doubt huge list. I keep my arcade sets separated into "classic" arcade games, i.e. MAME games, Daphne, Model 2 etc, and "modern" arcade games, or what are sometimes called "PC based". Those that run natively on PC, or use a loader like jconfig or Teknoparrot. TTX, Nesica, Konami e-amuse etc... Many video creators have made "Arcade Classics" videos, but I have never found one for modern games. Would you be so kind?
