I've enhanced the graphics Aero_Films gave me. I cannot tell a difference, only the Intro would maybe give it away.

With Outdoor Activity and Daypart forecast pages. Still need to work on animations and font sizes.

I'm considering it. However I'm still working on it and they're many bugs to still work out. Only very few icons are animated and still creating other forecast pages.

The project file uses the fonts Interstate Regular, Bold, Black Condensed and Bold Condensed. Good thing is that those fonts became free a few years ago! Plus the project is made in after effects
CC 2015.

I'm posting this here because this is more of an emulation. I'm currently re-creating the base maps and color tables that the 2004-2011 SD satellite lf used. So far it's turning out good!

I've decided to restart my WeatherStar XL / Intellistar emulation endeavors since I have all the software and equipment to get an authentic emulation with up to 95% accuracy.

Right now, I am starting with the WeatherStar XL V3 project since I have never attempted that to date, and so far not too shabby. Base maps and Radar are not a worry anymore for any STAR I attempt, since I have the software needed to mimmick TWC base maps and color tables.

Here's a small sample that I posted below.

Updated and more complete emulation. Still has many bugs but those will slowly be phased out. Also I posted a familiar graphic for you TWC classic fans! All created with a mix of,

QGIS (projections, Borders)

LandSerf (Terrain)

Photoshop (All graphical elements, some terrain work, and map scenes)

After Effects (NTSC and Color correction)

VirtualDub (VHS Compositing)

Movie Maker (for flavor lineup)

Not as many people seem to be interested in the Artwork section? How do the graphics look? What improvements could I make? I know what I need to do but what do you guys see?
