My entry!

X Rebirth - Waking Up

@BigBANGtheory - sorry no bridge action this time (I wanted to, but can't remove the hud and crosshair from first person yet), but I have lots of others videos with that :)

:O That is so beautiful *-*
My favourite so far but all entries are very beautiful and great.
Now I regret that I have bought an AMD gpu to turn the HUD off :D
I am very impressed.

A few questions:
1.) Which video editing software did you use?
> I used Windows Movie Maker but I have the problem upon exporting that sound and video get out of sync, the music is slightly but noticably faster. I think it has something to do with the American NTSC system.
2.) Which video recording software?
3.) How did you manage that the Xenon don't attack you?
4.) And whats that cool music in the background? :D

Thank you :)
As for the hud question, as I wrote I don't know if the trick can also work on AMD cards, someone has to be brave enough to try :P

1) I used the VSCD Free Video Editor suggested by X2-Illuminatus (thank you for the suggestion btw!)...it has its limitation (some crashes, and the preview function was so slow to be almost completely useless...I had to render the entire video multiple times to see where to correct and adjust things :shock: ), but is simple enough that for the first time I understood how to work on a video montage, I always wanted to do one but I've never been able to before!

2) Nvidia Shadowplay, it's very good because it has a negligible impact on performance even at exceptional quality (the raw videos at full screen, were practically the same as having the game running!), it's very dumb because it records everything on screen, including mouse cursor, steam overlay and notifications, everything...had to use a joystick to have a completely clean view...

3) Well, the Xenon I was too busy chewing the Balors I threw at it :)...I cut before the thing noticed me and gave me its greetings :D

4) Waking Up by M83, part of the Oblivion movie soundtrack, as reported in description ;)...a bit underrated movie, but it's really worth it in my opinion, even for the music alone, go check it if you already didn't! :)

Your video was blocked (at least in Germany) because of copyright infringement.
"Sadly this video is not available in Germamy because it contains content from SME [...]"
Egosoft is a German studio so this might be a problem.
It is probably the music :)

We watched all videos and were able to determine a winner: Congratulations to Aken_Bosch, whose name will be immortalized in X Rebirth and who receives a signed poster plus another price. Here is his entry:

X Rebirth - Waking Up

A big thank you goes to all the other participants as well. Your creativity and passion, showing how you influence the X-Universe, did impress us!

Given the size of the field in the competition, all of the competitors should receive a prize. Over the next days, we will get in contact with all contestants to arrange the dispatch of their well-earned prizes.

You have my deepest envy that you have the honor to get immortalized in XR :O
I had hoped to become the next Suzie on stations (in station announcements) :D
Surely there are video competitions to come in the future.

I can watch your video over and over again altogether with this beautiful music. :)

Thank you very, very much! :D

Although I made several images in the past, I never tried my hand at video editing before, it has been fun to do nonetheless :) (and even if I heard that music countless times, over and over again while making it, I still find it lovely, it's such a great little piece of soundtrack!)

Who knows, I may very well have earned a memorial plaque on the Skunk's bathroom door :P...or I may be the new testimonial for the immaculate spaceweed plantations posters :D
