And that is one badass poster. Got a wallpaper version of that? 1920x1200 or 1650x1080?

This looks amazing! I would definitely use this as a wallpaper. Even so... as gorgeous as this is, I have to say...

The hands are wrong. Protoss have two thumbs on either side of the hand, with two digits between them.

That's right, but my reference was the SC2 cinematics, in which Zeratul for example strays away from that idea.

This is beautiful FreeSpace. I saw a teaser for this on your YouTube page. I see Kerrigan is on there as well; can't wait to see her poster.

I agree with Alar, this needs to be a wallpaper.

And regarding the fingers and thumbs: Zeratul's "pinky thumb" looks like it can function as both, not just one or the other.

There are too few people who have unlocked the secrets of math enough to comprehend that, when it comes to fan-made, blizzard-related material, 7 = 1.5.

Welcome to the club of the elite. We meet on Tuesdays at 7:00pm. By which, of course, I mean 1:30pm ... or maybe 7:00pm. I don't know, but try one. It depends on my mood.

Alex06

One question:

What is Chronicles of Fate?

By the way, very well done. I especially love the homage to Ulrezaj, though I think my favorite scene is the invasion of the Zerg Swarm as Observers jetted away. Something about that just tickled something inside, and I know part of that was due to the fact that this was the first time I've seen the Zerg actuall swarm a planet.

My only complaints are the character movement and voice work. What happened to the guy who voiced Tassadar in First Contact? He would have been perfect for this.

Absolutely terrific. :D
UUummm...Thanks for spoiling it for those who haven't seen it? Seriously, it's not even OFFICIALLY out yet.

idk if its supposed to have nbeen released yet or not, but the frontpage reddit post (that isnt a trailer) is this one http://pixelatedgeek.com/2011/10/freespace-films-releases-starcraft-final-metamorphosis/ withc contains a 'private" version only... someone else linked a public version in the comments.

anyway, i've seen it... sick work freespace. im speechless.

Holy shit that was amazing! I hope this lands you a career at Blizzard's cinematic team, because a talent like that should not be left unnoticed.

Will you be posting this to the official forums for added exposure? If not do you mind if I do?

Nice job!

Well, after watching it I saw First contact again

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOxfIapsrJs

and noticed that there has been a switch over from SC1 art style to SC2 art style.
Tassadar also looks a bit different... but the question is:

What happened to his voice? in First contact it was so similar that you could even think it was the original SC1 voice actor. (it wasn't just me, just read the comments, a lot of people thought the same)

That was freaking amazing! I love the T. Kazansky cameo, I wonder if he's a fan of Top Gun?

The space fight scenes were awesome, honestly some of the directing in this was better than the stuff in SC2 - which was too cliche for me.

Nice job man.

Loved it! On par with if not better than many of WoL's cinematics. Especially loved the fight between Tassadar & Kerrigan as it adheres much more closely to the actual mission and is more of what I imagined (more so than the debacle that was QoB).

This. The sort of space blood clots they left behind when they died in space were a joy to watch, and were so much better than if they had simply disappeared.

That was pretty impressive. Graphics were awesome, direction was really sweet.

I had a few issues with a bit of the dialogue/voice direction and some of the vocal effects. (Didn't really sound accurate to the game, but then even the game is usually not accurate to the game, so eh.)

Overall very nice work.

Hey Freespace! First off, First Contact and Final Metamorphosis continually blow my mind. You are such an inspiration to me, and everyone else who loves StarCraft.

From the First Contact interview, you mentioned some of the software you used in the creation process. Could you talk about some of the software you used for Final Metamorphosis? Are you still using 3dsMax? If not, what are you using now?

Thanks, and keep up the great work!
