COLORFUL platform video set

View File


A complete new series of platform video for our frontend, made with love form France.
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 hope you like it ! 😙
Colorful_video_set_by_viking.thumb.jpg.d611cb3280cc2f0a2f470b30a179b966.jpg# 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)
  • 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)

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.



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 !

3 ways :

  1. One by one - right here, with the download button at the top right.
  2. Automatically - in LaunchBox > Option > Platform Video Downloader Tools > Select "Colorful 4K"
  3. By batch - On the Emumovies FTP ://Upload Here/_Video Snap Submissions/COLORFUL Platform Video Set/

The creation of this thread will be long and I have not finished creating this first batch of video.
In the meantime, here is where I am photomontage. (All are not finalized)

Wow - you've been busy! And I think....they might even be an improvement on the last set of videos ;) Can't wait to try some of these. I'd like to help to try and make some, if I am able. I'll watch out for the tutorial. Will these be on the Launchbox scraper?

Nice @viking Looking forward to these. I am building a mini desktop cab for my daughter and she requested clean and simple for BigBox media. This will be perfect.

Thx guys !

@Fablog : I can edit videos in 1080p, but we lose a lot of details that I worked with 4K. I also use a 1080p screen. But even at this resolution, there is a difference between a 4K and fullHD video file.

Here is a screenshot taken while playing VLC on my 1920x1200px screen.
1994964885_4K-HDversion.thumb.jpg.a8cad271cda749021a793af28b12c636.jpgLook at 100%. All my work on the screen "pixel" effect on the GBA is lost in 1080p. Probably due to compression and small resolution.
In fact, only few things move on the screen on this video set. Files are not too heavy. I advise you to use the 4K version.

However, on lower resolutions, it's another story! Tell me if you need lower resolution set. 😃

OK guys. Some news and updates.

Seen with @Jason Carr , the H265 codec (more modern) gives problems with old machine and Windows Media Player. So I re-encoded all the videos in H264 format. (MP4 - H264 - AAC)
I updated all files in the Download page & the LaunchBox video download tool. If you have problems with my videos, update them!

Downloading is now possible via FTP EmuMovies (premium user) !!! Of course, the BIG advantage here is the batch download in one click!
I placed all files here: FTP ://Upload Here/_Video Snap Submissions/COLORFUL Platform Video Set/
Bonus : On the FTP EMuMovies, I offer you 3 video format!

  • 4K | 3840x2160 | mp4 h264 AAC  (like here)
  • 4K | 3840x2160 | mp4 h265 AAC
  • HD | 1920x1080 | mp4 h264 AAC  (for small resolution screen)

If EmuMovies modo come here, tell me if I put the files in the right place on the FTP. I can move them if needed!

And a new update is available !!!
+ 17 Platform video 😬

Hi Viking,

Thank you for making another great selection of videos. I'm also big fan of your Big Couch theme.

Do you have any plan to update Big Couch theme to match beautiful colors of 4k videos? That'd be perfect Big Box theme ever created.

This looks amazing.

One constructive feedback : Maybe it is just me or my monitor (full HD) but I find that the centered platforms look a bit smaller on that large colourful background. Maybe slightly bigger systems or crop a bit of the background would allow us to see closer details of the machines and the videos.

Otherwise, Well done again.

Hey Viking, I love your new set! Looks like I may have to switch over from your Nostalgia set.

Any chance you can do videos for a CAVE upright and the US version of the Nintendo SNES?
