Default "The Beginning of the End" - Best air sim vid I've ever seen.



Easily the best air combat sim vid I've ever seen. Fantastic job on teamwork, script, camera, sound effects, flying, editing, score, well, everything really. Despite running over half an hour it didn't feel a minute too long, which is quite something for a sim movie.

The climax is a Hurri take-off scene which is just ridiculously epic, but there are so many wonderful, fleeting scenes that it would be wrong to single out just one.

I loved that the Hurri played the starring role on the British side, as in the real BoB. I loved that the formations were spaced out historically correctly. I loved that planes were realistically damaged and didn't blow up like petrol cans. All the flying was a good deal lower than in the real BoB, but that was ok, because it showed off the landscape to good effect. A few clips should not have been in (dancing radar towers, weirdly spinning Me-110 going down), but those small glitches just underline the superb quality of all the other clips and the production as a whole.

I did my share of movies, so I know what a huge job this movie must have been: it does not show though, because it is so expertly made that it looks natural and effortless. Kudos for an amazing viewing experience.

Hmm, don't know what happened to the formatting there... Oh well.

It is a beautifully made video and indeed CoD has come along way. Unfortunately the first thing I notice despite the amazing model making and graphics is still the terrible lack of antialiasing in the sim. TF needs to make fixing that their highest priority.

The cable still looks just awful bad, that is the problem that I hope can be fixed one day

Superb! The best I've seen so far.

One suggestion. The Hurricane take-off may have been better earlier in the video?

Hearing the human voices, gave it a sense of immediacy and realism.

Well done, all

Best Regards,

Tremendous effort. I really wish the actual game voices sounded like that. AI speech is by far the worst I have ever heard.

Fanastic Video, pity the game cannot be reborn with a major financial backer.

Here's dreaming
