[E] Custom Cutscenes

Post by BlueDragonCody »

I was hoping you guys could come up with a way to put cutscenes in between frames instead of being a still image. If not, that's okay. :wink:

You could have an animated image, like a .gif or .svg.

I realize that. I actually want to put .mp4 files or .wmv files into the trials. The reason is that I want to make something similar to Dual Destinies/Spirit of Justice.

Oh, so a video file. I can look into the technical requirements for that, though it won't be a priority. I imagine it could be done, though.

A workaround would involve separating the audio and video tracks, turning the video into a .gif, and playing both in a timed frame with the video as a background picture and the audio as a sound file. Probably not worth the trouble, but it's an option.

That is DEFINITIVELY not worth the trouble. I would rather have actual cutscenes, to be honest.

To pick back up on this topic, despite its moderate age:

HTML5 video support is widespread in all modern browsers, and performance is generally stellar, even on mobile. I have recently worked on a project that extensively uses HTML5 video (specifically, in .webm format) to generate broadcast graphics in junction with a messaging pipeline. It was performant and worked exactly as expected, and made for a significant increase in production quality. Since I consider the acceptable latency, responsiveness, performance, and quality requirements for that project magnitudes higher than for AAO, I can only see us benefiting from supporting this.

There's a few conversations to be had concerning how to provide an interface for this in the editor, and how to adjust frame logic to consider videos (do they become their own type of frame? can they be added on top of every frame? can multiple videos be layered on top of one another? etc. etc.), but generally, this is a feature that would be great to have.

I agree, thanks for letting me know that it's possible! I hope this suggestion becomes a reality!
