    I edited the original post to follow the template.

    I also included links to both a ZIP file of the final entries and a table of all the WIPs and final entry posts from the main thread.

    A big congrats to the 3 contestants for their entries!
    All of them did some fabulous work in their own respect, especially terrain wise. Great to see some awesome cinies still being put out there.

    Oh, I understand it now. I think you have set your WC3's music volume Sound Option in full. You should set it in half for a really better sense of the cinematic.
    Thanks for the review! :)

    @KILLCIDE Could you add this note to my entry?

    Note 3: Make sure you set your WC3's music volume Sound Option in about half (for a really better sense of the cinematic) according to the picture below.

    You should be able to see it without voting. Why does that matter anyway?

    I can see the results and I have not voted yet, because I have not looked at Yaser's entry yet.

    While I liked PrinceYaser's entry, Ungoliath's entry is just absolutely taking us within the story. I really liked the camera effects too.

    Voted for Aurora's Miracle.

    My vote also goes to Ungoliath's Aurora's Miracle. The trippy post apocalyptic scene trumps everything else. Especially noted is the elaborate clock scene, some truly amazing work.

    As for the other two entries:
    One thing shines above all else - this is some quality technical work. The sound blends in well, and the triggerwork to move units is smooth. Problem is, there was not too much of this trigger work, with storytelling mostly reserved to moving cameras around titular scenes from the game we all know. The result is looks great, but I wouldn't choose it as the only method of story telling. Another small bother is the use of character models from another game, they look better sure, but the new portrait sticks in the WC3 setting like a sore thumb (or maybe that's just me).

    Hello ensemble studios, didn't know you moved to WC3. The work itself is fair, I dig the olde timey fable idea, although there's no real conclusion to speak of, which slightly spoils the story. The settings and triggerwork were also OK, however note that using the sand tile you had along with the whiter fade filter made the sand look blank and surreal, which clashed with the battle scenes.

    I like this Cinematic alot because there are so models, textures, good amount of beautiful skins and a wonderful (yet quiet) voice acking



    I kinda like this one cause it portrayed how arthas tried to save Lorderon at the cost of his soul right after his friend (Muradin BronzeBeard told him to lead his men home but Arthas denies it) and the added voiceline from World of warcraft just came along (and other game that needed to find lol)



    i don't like this because that Crash my game twice (1 while getting a drink and other checking) seariously @PrinceYaser you need to make sure that your sinimatics doesent crash the game

    Crash Cinematic.png

    ik its over 23 MB but.... that cinematic needs to be fixed...

    Lol!! Hm.. I checked many times in my own PC (on patch 1.27) and worked perfectly. I suppose you're on patch 1.29, I didn't optimize any of my maps for 1.29.

    Well, I dunno if 1.29 breaks the map or not. I will try tho.

    Edit:
    Yeah, it causes problems with the cinematic. It's better not to optimize it for 1.29.

    @Wardota2 Gamer is gonna make a whole video of our entries, you can watch my cinematic there once he posted the video.
