# 1 My STO Video - Eclipse
02-26-2013, 10:39 AM
Hi there,

I've just finished another video.

This one is a bit longer (5 mins) and made using The Foundry. It's different to any of the others I have made, as it's a little more story driven and not just set to music.

Star Trek Online - Eclipse

Please let me know what you think.

Starfish1701, I quite enjoy your videos, and am pleased to see you that you have created another one.

It would be interesting to learn more of the story (Project Eclipse) your video showcases.

As always, thank you for sharing your video.

Very cool! I definitely liked the story aspect to it.

What voice-synthesizer software did you use?

Awesome Starfish.

Gonna try type some sort of constructive criticism too though.

I think the artificial voice dialogue was not good enough for one of your videos, if I were you I'd try look for volunteers in the community to do some voices, just an idea.

And seeing what you can do in such a short time, I'd like to see what you could do if you allowed yourself to take bit longer time and perhaps make even longer episode/video.

Music, timing and camera moves are awesome I think, but sometimes a cut to next scene feels "rushed".

Meh, that was me trying to give constructive feedback. lol

Your videos rock!

Thanks for the feedback Idrona,

The whole thing was rushed to be honest, I had more footage than time. I was beginning to get bored of it, and wanted it wrapped up quickly. (I have a very short attention span, which is why my videos are usually short.)

I wasn't happy with the voice dialogue at all, though it did serve a purpose to open the story, even though it made it slow starting.

Thanks again for the feedback, it is very much appreciated.

The back story (very basically) was that Starfleet find a derelict cube, and tow it secretly away to study it. A scientist on board conducts research on the drones (which he was told he couldn't do) and accidentally awakes them. He had outside help of some kind though to set up his little lab deep within the cube. Starfleet only had the Eclipse for about a week in total, before the incident.

The Eclipse is still out there, and I wanted it left with a way out for Rhymer, and to set up a sequel (if I ever make it) with a dramatic opening scene of Klingons storming the prison and breaking him out (because I wanted the next one to be more action packed from the very start). The KDF had heard rumors of the cube, but were unable to locate it. Obtaining Rhymer would be the next best thing.

Natural Reader. There is another one called Ivona that is pretty good.

Star... you know I love you. Don't you? I already told you few times


I mean, I never thought that there could be a quality increase after I saw all your trailers, but this did top everything I have ever seen.

You creeped the hell out of me when this Borg appeared behind the scientist.

C'mon, I know you gonna do a sequel.

And after that sequel, we talk about user requests. My user requests gg

You're best!!!

Awesome!

That would make one hell of a Foundry mission.

Actually, it would make a great FE.

There are a few of us who dabble in voice acting and the podcasters love to talk, feel free to ask.

Thank you. That's very helpful.

I had never thought of enlisting people to do voice overs.

The text to speech is okay, and sometimes passable, but usually just sounds artificial.
