Hi guys,

As you probably all know, DYOM version 8.0 is released. We do have a few trailers, for example for DYOM v8.0 (thanks DoublePulse!), but the "download DYOM trailer" (not for one version, but "overall") is very very old and misses a lot of features.

We would like to have an "overall" trailer, that makes people enthusiastic for this modification. It has to contain all major features of DYOM, has to be exciting as well as informative... However, both me and Patrick don't have the equipment and the skills to make a nice trailer.

We know that it is a big challenge to make a trailer of this modification that shows every aspect of the modification. I guess that it isn't a one-person project. If you want to join the team that makes the trailer, please reply.

Patrick and I would be very very very grateful if you guys can give us a trailer which we can use for promoting this modification. It will be used at the DYOM website, at GTAGarage, at both this forum and the Dutch GTAForum, as well as everywhere we want to promote DYOM. :D

Thank you!!

You mean like showcasing DYOM features ? If thats the case, I recorded some videos about cutscenes. I may record about the others and put them into one video if you wish.

You underestimate it.

@SoftTouch: indeed :)

So the trailer should contain:
- Design mode versus play mode
- Mission only versus storyline missions
- All major features of DYOM

It should be exciting and informative.

I know it's a big thing we ask from you guys, especially in planning the trailer, but we really hope that you can help us out!!!

I was thinking it should be broken up into 3 things

 

Intro should show some exciting gameplay :p

 

1. Create- Show different things in the design mode and what it can do.

2. Play- Show gameplay from varied of missions, either in an overlay of multiple videos or by cutting

3. Share- Show where Designers can share and download other missions, which would be the database.

 

This kind of an idea I see that may get the main point. It is impossible to show everything in a trailer and to make a GREAT trailer it would take lot more work and editing. There is a rule with trailers that a scene should be no longer than 5 seconds because it makes things drag out and boring.

I Have discussed with The Odyssey and we decided to make a trailer together.

Oh and Doublepulse. I was actually having the same thing in mind.

Well, I really liked that trailer, but I didn't like what you said at the end "Be the best designer or die trying"

In DYOM we're all a family and we don't "fight" to be the best designer, we only design for fun :p

I'm glad that you like it. I stretched the video a little so it don't have that annoying side bars, well... they're still at bottom and top but I'll try to convert that trailer with better resolution and quality later.

Loved the trailer as well, but I think the text is too long in the beginning. Besides that, fantastic! :)

:p Trailer was nice, It shows what type of missions could be made with the mod. Nice work, however if it was something that was being sent to Rockstar, that would not make it haha. No offense though. I thought it was clear to the point. :)

I want to make something like Doublepulse's trailer which is like GTA V's Gameplay Trailer, but I need someone to narrate it, I can't narrate, I don't read good, I hate my voice, I don't wanna hear, or even think about it.

 

And awesome trailer xMatix :^:

I don't think you need a voice in a trailer like this...?

I kinda want to make something like this, similar to Doublepulse's

lol that video is basically what I made a reference to in my trailer :D.

 

Also, I did all my editing on my ipad, so that was why it took a little longer :p

 

But yea, narration is not required, it just makes it little more interesting. However you also have to make a script and practice a few times. I practiced my narration a little, but I edited out the dead space of air.

I agree that a voice is great for a "version"-trailer, because then you will explain some of the new stuff. However, the "general" DYOM trailer does not need a voice imo, just lots of action, etc. Actions (images) speak louder than words. :p

I know, I have an Idea for a trailer made up in my mind, without narration, just lots and lots of action and stuff which showcases the DYOM features but it's gonna take up some time.

Thanks, means a lot.

I updated the trailer, cut it down by 30 seconds, did some other tweaks, most notable is that I removed the "Created with Sony Vegas 12" popping up every five clips :p

Make sure to watch it again!

Like I told you on Skype yesterday, apart from a few minor remarks, I think it's a very nice trailer. :D
