IntelliStar Emulations by saxlover98
« on: June 02, 2015, 09:48:36 AM »
Hello! I have a emulation of the IntelliStar v2 to share today. I made it completely in After Effects. I made it in honor of our IntelliStar unit that was finally decommissioned on 5/29/15. The weather data and audio is from a LF audio recording I had laying around, along with the forecast copied as text from the LF on 10/28/14.

Good work, looks pretty solid! How does one embed YouTube videos by the way?

Thanks! Embeding videos is supposed to work by using the Insert hyperlink button and removing the S from the YouTube URL, but YouTube substitutes that "Device Support" video instead because of an API change on their side.

Oh, OK. Well hopefully they can fix that. I miss my IntelliSTAR. One morning I just woke up and had that letterbox feed from HD. It sucks on a small TV like mine because especially thin small fonts aren't visible. I don't see why they thought this was a good idea. Sorry about the little rant there BTW... :itsok: What do you think they will do with all of the decommissioned STAR units?

Did you remake the icons, or are they just recorded? I can't see anyone remaking them, but on mine I thought "If The Weather Chazz can do it, I can too!" lol

I've created another emulation, but this time it's a full two minute flavor.

It's been a while since I've done anything here, but I've made some improvements to my IntelliStar emulation. I wanted to try doing one for another location, so here's one for Spokane, WA to celebrate the new year.

Well, that took a while. This was a bit delayed since I've been going through and trying to fix up the emulation some more. I hope everyone enjoys it! If anyone has any feedback for me on the video, I'm glad to hear it.

So, looking back at my previous emulations, I've been improving them slowly, but they aren't the best. So, I decided to completely scrap my previous emulations and remake it from scratch. I think this new emulation looks pretty real, but I'll leave it to you guys to judge that

So, I ended up taking an unexpected hiatus from emulations and my channel due to my first year of college getting crazy. I've done a bit of work in my spare time to get this looking even more like the real thing. Enjoy!

Since Google seems to have broken the old Flash based YouTube embedded player, here's a link! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpVGOGO-K4Q

With all this rain we've been having, I thought it would be good to do an emulation. This one features the addition of real radar and satellite data!

I guess I haven't touched this thread in quite a long time. Made some improvements, and put in a new flavor. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axSK69dHGjM
