Just been watching the new videos, kinda re-awoke a desire to go do something new in eve, get the pulse going again.

Absolutely fantastic work, as always.

I only have one minor gripe, in the Galente movie, about 3 minutes in, as you're passing down the main pipe towards the Megathron, there are some lit support struts (right hand side, upper half) that seem to pass through the another set as the camera transposes them, its -really- ugly...

How hard would it be for some video wiz to fix it?

The problem is these are not the videos we asked for and there is way too much camera movement to make a good wallpaper. I still plan to keep bumping this thread up till CCP listen and give us what we asked for. How hard can it be to upload a video they already made?

What do you expect? We ask for one video that's already been made, get told we will get it. We wait ages then get given the wrong video which is nowhere near as good and you expect us to be happy?

The original video is 10fold better then the videos we have been given. Teasing players with a great video and telling them they will get it then give out a far worse video means the players have a right to complain.

Is there a special program I need to download or does win7 do it?

Youre the only one who complains here and yet you speak of "we" and "us".

Jack bubu lots of people wanted the fanfast videos. Are your really saying the people who want those videos no longer want them just because some different videos are out? Others have said in other places this is not what they expected.

I used the word we as in everyone that asked for the videos but didn't get them has a right to complain. Everyone who wanted the original videos is still waiting. It is not just me waiting for the original videos that CCP said we will get.

This thread is about the fanfest videos. So don't tell me to gtfo because I am still waiting for those videos and still waiting for a response from CCP who said we will get them.

Yes you got them from CCP, so what are you whining for?. Now STFU and be happy that they gave us those video wallpapers at all.

I, for one, am happy with our new Wallpaper overlords.

*cough* Bad memes aside...

They're good, Pottsey. Yes, the fanfest videos we liked are much more stationary...but these do fine too. Just edit off the ending and beginning, and they loop perfectly...then if it's too much movement for you, just slow it down a bit before slapping on your desktop.

I have all the videos into one so your able to view all 4, without logos, without advertisement and the quality is in HD 1080p. The sizes were 1920x1080 and have been converted to 1440x1080 so it still looks great.

My first try and file for this was very low quality but it was also small.. This file is still under what the 4 files add up to but it still remains at around 750MB. Please post any crits or comments.

I use a free and good program, Video Wallpapers is a small download that you must install on Vista/XP machines. Once installed, (its a simple .scr file that allows you to play any movies as a screensaver) give the location of EvE_SS.wmv. Thats it...

There is a difference between valid complaining and whining. What I am complaining about is valid. What you are doing is whining. Verone all you have done is whine constantly about people making valid complaints. But I guess that's just the type of person you are and that's what your reputation is like.



Genya Arikaido said "Yes you got them from CCP, so what are you whining for?."
No we have not got what this thread is about from CCP. I am complaining about not getting what we were told we are getting. Expecting object A and getting object B when B is not as good as A is something valid to complain about. What we have been given is not that awesome or much use to me. What we got showed at the fanfest and told we were getting now that would be very useful to me and awesome.

Very Happy Thank you CCP!

...may I please have some more? Razz

Needed to do an edit, now that I've watched them, I just want to add that these truely are wonderful. I know that since these have been pushed out, I'm sure that there are many other things on your list to do that will now take precedence, but if we could get more things like this in the future as time comes available (perhaps after other expansions), I think it would be an awesome thing.

I can well picture a new series of these once Incarna comes out, one for each race showing off the architecture. Also, while I love what you've done with the stations, I would also love to see what you could come up with outside the stations... perhaps race specific, perhaps not, but hitting up stations, planets, moons, belts, gates. The same style as what you've done here, but showing common activities at different locations that show off some of the various facets of Eve.

Cheers, and thanks for all the work you've put into this, looks excellent!

New wall papers set, anyone who is asking how to set them as wallpapers i used

http://www.stardock.com/products/deskscapes/

dreamscene will work on vista, but my edition of windows 7 doesnt support it so stardock to the rescue, it carries a 10 fee but meh.

also the ones from fanfest would be nice these ones whilst pretty and are now my background, are a little too active and distracting, the ones from fanfest were alot more subtle

Thanks CCP. These are very, very nicely done and work very well as desktop backgrounds or screen savers.

I do understand Pottseys point though. While some people don't mind the (albeit very slow and smooth) motion in these video's, the more stationary ones from fan fest do have some appeal for those that get distracted by the movement behind their applications. That being said, I'm certainly not voicing any complaints about these video's. They are wonderful.

I still love the idea of having an interface with drop down lists of which ships are shown, but that's a whole different kettle of fish and I am sure well beyond the scope of this little side project.

We managed to accomplish the same thing lol, i also did what you have done but i kept the resolution at 1920x1080 so it takes up 636mb.

Eve Screensaver

I also made if anyone is interested a sped up "lite" version of the video that is about 8 minutes in total, is only 370mb and is still as high quality and smooth as the regular All Hanger video above but just sped up to 1.9x speed.

lol, very nice! :) The only thing that I need to go back and change is to take OUT the sounds... very annoying to leave my computer/room to come back to my computer blaring sound from a screensaver..

you have to uncheck the box, that way you don't need to press S, as soon as the screensaver comes on there is no sound.

There was only one massive video (wasn't a video wallpaper) made for Fanfest. Amarr.

And when I say massive, it made to be in full HD and as big as the stage backdrop--so like a bajillion MB file. Unless I am mistaken, nobody has a screen that big to show it on (except us at Fanfest). If you do, please send us a picture of you playing EVE on it and I'll definitely get you the original file somehow :)

So, it just wasn't possible or appropriate to provide that original file for everyone. We went back and forth internally a bit on how best to fulfill the obvious desire with something else. Keep in mind this was while the Dominion trailer was being made and while one of our main video guys was all mired up having twins. No, they are not named "Tibus Heth" or "Jamyl Sarum", but they and mom are doing well.

So, we figured the easiest way to do it was to provide a looping video (like the original) and re-render it a bit to fit normal HD screens with a reduced filesize. Making it directly as a screensaver would mean a much larger filesize for no reason, when, as seen in other parts of this thread, there are ways to have looping videos as screensavers on many platforms.

The added benefit of providing them as videos is to make available more visuals for those creative ones of you to pull clips from as you create your own EVE movies. We've seen amazing and hilarious uses of the various movies we have put out already and hoped this would help those efforts down the road. The ESRB stuff is, well, unavoidable as a business... The various threads on this subject have shown ingenuity already :)

As I said before, there was originally just the Amarr one. We therefore decided to make three entirely new videos to represent the other races as a thank you for waiting for them. Of course, once the Dominion PEWPEWBurnThemAll trailer was out and we started down that road, the inherent challenges of the internal architecture of the Caldari and Minmatar stations being considerably smaller made it tough to provide the same grandiose majesty and camera panning as the others. Our video team ironed it out though and they turned out well.

In case you couldn't find the Minnie ones, direct links are here. Still sorting out some weirdness with displaying them on the Visuals page.

Hope that all makes sense.

While CCP can't thumbs up external programs for sure, those curious might want to check out the following threads where EVE pilots have tossed in their two cents on getting them to work on different types of computers.

CCP Manifest said "As I said before, there was originally just the Amarr one. We therefore decided to make three entirely new videos to represent the other races as a thank you for waiting for them."
I am a bit confused here. From what I have seen of the original Amarr one it was mostly a static camera that didn't fly all over the place real fast making it a perfect wallpaper video. The Amaar one you gave us the camera fly's all over making it worse as a desktop wallpaper. Is there any chance of getting just the originally Amaar one with the slow mostly static camera?

For example watch http://www.youtube.com/ccpgames#p/u/5/M6E4dDDUF90 20seconds and the camera has not moved. 2mins 11 seconds in and the camera is still pointing at the same command ship. The 3 min mark shows another great example. There is camera movement but it's very slow and subtle. That makes it a perfect wallpaper in my mind. can we please have the wallpapers like this? Or at least just the Amaar original one.

EDIT:
Is the Amaar original one 100% the same as the one you gave us, only the original is playing back at am much slower speed? In which case could you please say how much slower so we can re-edit it? I would love to see the playback speed just the same as fanfest as that was perfect in my mind.

but they loop perfectly, and have monotone color. They move very very slowly.

and everyone else so far is jsut happy with them as wallpapers.

If you want wallpapers of just ships, then use fraps, record your ship in station, and use it as a wallpaper.
