[Video] Enchanted Forests

Submitted by Ajyia
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
No storyline... just some impressions of a mystical nightelf-forest - my first Project in WC3 after 5 years or so.

Actually I didn't plan to upload this, so its neigher compressed, nor coded in an intelligent way - well... hope you can enjoy watching it though...

Update 1:
- more effects (fog, weather effects)
- changed some cameras
- erased some disfigurements (is this the right word? Google sais so.)

    Originality:
    I have to say that I haven't seen any cinematic like this before in the map section so you score well in case of originality.

    Music:
    I liked the music. It was nice to hear. Another + point.

    Sound Effects:
    About sound effects there can be improvements. In the beginning I heard sound of owl even when it was clearly day time. Also you should turn off the sound of frogs(?). I heard the sound many time if I am correct & it wasn't suited with the music.

    Unit use:
    You have tried to depict a night elf village but you have used only few of the night elf units. Mainly I saw Dyrad model. Other units gazing from a mountain can also be used if you like.
    There wasn't much wildlife considering that it was a forest. I mainly saw birds flying. You could have used dears & furbolgs too.
    Workers of the village & some children playing near water sources would have depicted the village even better.

    Terrain:
    Cannot say much here. One thing that I have to say is about waterfalls. The waterfalls sometime gave me impression as if they were coming outside of the land instead of a water source. That could be improved.

    Replayability:
    I saw the cinematic twice mainly because I liked the music.

    Other Suggestions:
    You could have used sunlight effects. I mean the patterns of light coming from sun. That would have enhanced the visual appeal.

    My rating would be 3/5 for this cinematic & vote for approval.

    Even if there is one this idea isn't used much.

    Very well made. I understand why you did not put any deers or furbolgs and other animals. If you will place more units, the serenity of the forest will be disrupted. I liked the feeling that I am alone in the forest with almost nothing moving. I don't like the units that are moving too much. I wish they moved a little bit slowly to show more gracefulness. For me, this map is great!

    Its amazing what you made with those awful blizzard models. I think it looked really good :D The ramp you could remove tho, it doesent look good. They almost never do.
    I would also like if you slowed down the animation speed of the tree of life and wisps.
    Overall pretty nice, i loved the music :D But its not so intresting withour a story. But well, then we dont have to look at text with no voices to. Or listen to badly made voices, which would ruin the music anyway.

    3/5 because of the enjoyable music, and silence :D
