Art Of Life 2.9

Submitted by Aeroblyctos
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This cinematic is 29 min long and 26.9 mt big file and cannot be watched in battle.net. Be patient when downloading this cinematic.

Art Of Life cinematic includes different kind of massive special effects. I also have put lyrics to this so you can example, use it like karaoke.

The whole cinematic is only one music. It is called Art Of Life. X-Japan released Art Of Life in 1993 so it is old, but it's one of my favorite composition. Well okay, it's my favorite.

The audio in the cinematic is high quality (I haven't changed the bitrate, that's the reason why this is 26.9 mt big).

To the music. Music tells about love, sadness and pain. If you want to learn more about the music go to http://www.sputnikmusic.com/album.php?reviewid=1794.

This game is highly recomended for fast computers. When you start to watch this remember to close all unnecessary programs.

Enjoy.

2.9
- Fixed memory leaks
- Added more cooler effects
- and much much more...

UNPROTECTED VERSION.

    I signed up today just to review this...

    To be honest, this was the most enjoyable cinematic I've watched so far, and I've downloaded quite a few from this site, including most of the top ones. Even if certain people like CMarket think they are the biggest badass map makers ever and downtalk the simplicity of it, they are mediocre. I enjoyed almost every part of it, minus 1050 -> like 1400 because they murdered the piano.(But to be honest, I understood the role it played, and it wouldn't make sense to cut it out.) Other than that, I thought the effects were great, the intro was fantastic, and the best parts were the thunderstomps and flamestrikes. I really hope you do more videos like this with something like Nightwish or Dream Theater.

    edit- btw, if you downtalk this because your computer sucks, then you are an idiot... He clearly says if you don't have a decent computer don't expect it to be as good.

    It's been a long time since anything with this changed or anything, or someone posted, but did you use the X japan music, or the music video used online? The X Japan Version seemed to have different timing and slightly less perfect music. It's the real music, the one you have just feels too perfect, and edited. And some parts are different.

    Ok finally I download the cinematic to and watched it. I don't know, if I should find it good or mad. I think something between both.

    It's not an art to place some effects, change them into other effects, or just create more and more and more effects. Sometimes the effects doesn't match themself ( for example: The "Flamestrike - Effect" while the guitar playing (nearly at the beginning)). But 95% of all effects look cool, specially the "Wisp-Creating" at the beginning - WOW! still love it!

    As I read the title "Art of Life", my first thought was, that this is a cinematic about "How was the first life created" or something like that - a cinematic with a story. I was surprised, as I saw it was a music/dance cinematic. Normally if I hear the word "Cinematic" I always think, there's a kind of story but you created something different and again, somehow I don't like it but somehow I like it ....50/50

    The Song: Oh yes.... if he starts singing my first reaction was "OMG". But while hearing, I guess after 180 - 200 seconds, I liked it. The song matches the effects and for me it was somehow fine to 80%.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    So what we got:
    + Like the "wisp-creating" and the effects with them - wonderful.
    + Like the music after some short time.
    + Without a story you create a good cinematic.
    + Of course a lot of work

    * No story but you done a good work without
    * The music .... ok I listen to other sorts of music, was different for me.
    * Don't like all effects but this was only around 5%

    - But still, it's an "mass effect map"
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    It's 4/3/1... I think you done your best with it, but (SORRY) I only can give you 4/5. This nothing against you. This nothing against the cinematic at all. But some small changes are needed (for MY opinion) - only some small.

    Ok very beatiful but it begins to get boring at ~500. Beside that at 1100 to about 1250 that piano solo... ahh my ears are still hurting.

    Well...
    I gotta say I`m impressed.
    But now I`d like to point out the things I didn`t like.
    So for first I think some special effects were too... random? I believe that you spawned them at the wrong place and/or time; example: purge effects combined with some teleport rushed in over a red Arthas playing on the guitar... see what I mean?. One more thing I didn`t like was... well, the music, but anyway that is just personal opinion; if you like the music then it`s ok.
    On the other side some effects were very well placed creating amazingly nice abstract visuals, the ending was nice too. (I lagged a little but it wasn`t that bad)
    I really appreciate the amount of work this map must`ve taken. Also I`m intrigued by war3 cinematics and I`m pretty sad you protected the map cause I`m curious about some elements.
    Overall I don`t see why this is hated that much, in my (newbie) opinion this map deserves a 4/5 :D

    It's just epic...
    For me it's something about 10/5...
    But... On 1250... I used ctrl+alt+delete to shut down Warcraft... I just wasn't able to hear it... But beggining of piano solo is just incredible.

    And effects are... Well... Bloodspine told everything I wanted but i have to say it once again. Why have you added teleportation effects in that scene with Arthas? In my opinion something like Vampiric Potion would fit better but its only my opinion.

    Overall its still a great movie/music/cinematic/map.
