« on: April 25, 2010, 04:13:35 AM »
W00T, I am starting to make emulations :biggrin: Well, here is my best one. I have another one, but has a few problems with queing. (I know the warning screen and the LDL on the warning screen looks crappy, but please, watch the LF! It's really good to me and other people :) )

WeatherStar Jr D Flavor and Tornado warning


Features: Malibu by Eddie Reasoner (At least, I do believe it was him).

I wan't ideas for ad crawls. If anyone has suggestions, post them here or PM me ;)

Premiere B) I hear that After Effects isn't to diffucult when you just get use to the software. I got used to Premiere very quickly.

Also, WeatherStar XL V3 emulator. NOTE... There are problems with the font and font sizes. If anyone can tell me what font to use and font size in a spicific spot, that would be wonderful to help make the emulation look better.

Enjoy!
Any my special thanks to LFMusicFan :)

Here's my newest, and somewhat "revamped" XL emulation.
I understand that the fonts are , again, wrong most likely.
I also understand that the ad crawl is too fast and the font is wrong on the ad crawl  :hammer: My apologies for that.

Here's an update to the last one. I fixed the ad crawl, but I just didnt include it since I couldn't think of an ad :P I indeed fixed the text shadowing, which made it look MUCH better to me.

Here's my latest emulation. I added the date and clock, and adjusted the icons, temp bars, etc. I also added the Radar segment (Lacking radar immagery, though  :hmm:

Enjoy! (Available in HD as well... :P )

I feel as if this is my most realistic one to date.
WeatherStar Junior - Revived!

"She Likes To Watch" by The Rippingtons. If you ask why it sounds funny, it's because I was trying out a high-pass filter ;)

Very nice! I wanna emulate a Junior like that but I don't have any proper programs to do so. The song sounds very HD like. :D

Here's something that isn't a STAR, but an Emergency Alert System emulation. This looks identical to the one in East Lansing (Comcast). I faked the data you see and hear :thumbsup:
