Advice for creating a FMV game

  • #1, by frenzykittyTuesday, 07. January 2014, 10:29 11 years ago
    Good Day. I'm very keen to start working on a FMV adventure game. As I have zero drawing ability and am a filmmaker by trade I figured FMV would be the easiest way to go.

    What I am looking for is some advice. What types of FMV games do you feel work best. Traditional 3rd person games, ala GK2 or First person games with FMV cutscenes?

    Do you have any advice for a beginner, in terms of creating photo walk cycles?

    Many Thanks

    There is a topic about motion here:
    1st person is easier, 3rd person you have to consider how you would do walk behind objects, there's quite a lot to consider like shadows
    removable objects are easy, you just take two images, one with the item in place the other no object, you just need to be careful about light changes
