Thanks man! Yeah getting higher quality ROQs was a a fun research project haha

 

@Cambridge Spy

It wasn't put in the mission because at the time I was told that it wouldn't work right. I've since been able to figure it out and eventually when Goldwell has the time, he'll put it in the map along with other misc. fixes.

The TDM would be very interested in this as this is a holy grale of sorts.

 

Yes, absolutely!

Can you share how you did this? I would love to see video briefings like the above become more common in TDM missions, but ROQ files tend to be of such poor quality that they're not satisfying to work with.

Just to clarify what Crowind means by the quality I added the ROQ to a mission and took the following screenshot of the video playing in game. Here's what it looks like when Dark Mod is set to 1080p

 

I mean the quality isn't going to be 4K or anything but its a lot better than what i've seen from other ROQ's

I'd be interested, but won't be ready for a few months yet...will you still be around?

Since there is some interest in this, I will post a guide and workflow on how I made it.

 

Also, if anyone still needs some intro cinematics made, I'd love to help!

Just message me with the details and we can figure out where to go from there.

 

Was it a work around of some sort or changes to the format itself somehow?

@Springheel

Yeah definitely. I'm going to spending most of the winter working on older projects, and playing through a list of FMs that I was recommended, so I'll be around.

 

@New Horizon

It was kind of a work around. Not an intense process or anything, but a generally overlooked one I'd say. I'll elaborate more in my workflow post.

Also, I have been thinking of messing around with the codec itself, just to see what I can do. No promises on anything great, but it'll be something fun I can do.

      Every day is just like the 4 Non Blondes song. What IS going on?

      I threw out all the women I had in my basement, to make room for my future clip brush experiments. I am surprised that not even the basic "nodraw" texture has been documented in the wiki. It's like a whole new frontier for me to explore, of exciting new advanced engine functionalities.
      At the same time there's so many other things I want to do. I want to do everything at once, and I lack patience, and I think that that's why I burn out so often. I need to learn to relax. There is no hurry - no expectations, no pressure.

      I did it! I finally did it! After 48 hours of frustration and confusion, I managed to finally sort out how to attach equipment to NPC:s properly, and write down coherent instructions on how to do it, both in my manual, and in this forum.
      I can finally rest. I can finally eat breakfast.

      Spent most of the day learning and writing about AI navigation. It's stuff I already know, but the magic about writing something down as clearly formulated as possible, is that you then see things that much more clearly. You also find what's unclear to you, and then you figure out exactly how things work. I was hoping to get through it all within just a day, but it looks like this will take tomorrow as well, at this rate. There's also plenty of other nonsense I have to get through as well. Everything's a chore.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.
