toxictwister00's Legacy STAR Emulations
« on: June 06, 2016, 05:04:49 PM »
Since my other thread is nearly 2 years old, I decided to start a new one dedicated to legacy STAR emulations that I create. From the WeatherSTAR3000 (1980s) to the IntelliSTAR v1.5 (2005-2007)

To start off, here's an emulation of the WeatherSTAR XL v1 created in After Effects. I even took some time to re-create the Daytime Local Forecast Intro (1999-2001) as well. It's not completed, I still have to work on completing the isobar animations in the background.

Legacy STAR: XL version 1 (1999-2001)
Location: Tampa, FL
Weather Conditions: Tropical Storm Colin/Outer Rainbands/Rain Squalls

Nice!!! Now can we have an actual PC or MAC Weatherstar XL emulator.. That would make a lot of people happy including myself!! BTW I am waiting for the rain bands to come thru here on the east coast of FL

For those that know, North Georgia is suffering through a drought this summer that ranges from moderate to extreme. Here in Atlanta were in the severe drought range. This rain we got today (and potentially more days coming up) is desperately needed.

Legacy STAR: XL version 2 (2001-2005)
Location: Atlanta, GA
Weather Conditions: Rain/Rumbles of Thunder
Song: Phil Davis - "Lady Labyrinth" (July 2002 Playlist)

This was created roughly 9 hours before Harvey made landfall in TX Friday night.

Song: "Anger Pays Off" (Videohelper) - You may recognize the music as it was used as the theme music for the 2010/2011 Tropical Update Opener. I always wished TWC would have used this as a Storm Alert theme.
