Emulated and Modified IntelliStar2 (In Severe Weather Mode)

Similar in idea to Weatherscan's Severe Weather Mode from the early to mid 2000's.

I've been thinking about doing something like this for years, but never quite took any appreciable time to do it. Off and on, I'll be working on creating my own animated and modified versions of the current wx icons.

The first one (and final draft) I worked on is "Cloudy/Windy"

I would post the animated version, but it's 228mb! :hmm:

These are all the animated weather icons I've animated/drawn in After Effects so far. Enjoy!

Next I have to create Nighttime/Rain/Wintry Icons.

My first successful attempt at the XLv3 in after effects (still a work in progress as evidenced in the video). I used Denver as the test city because of Winter Storm Ajax. The song used is one of my favorites from the November/December 2009 playlist called, "Peace Waltz" by Lenny Marcus, the song certainly has a wintry feel to it.

Man, it's been a long time since I made one of these in After Effects...

What a scorcher in HOTlanta yesterday, the mercury reached 88F which tied the record high of 88F set back in 1894! :o B) The average high for April 29th is 76F.

I don't get to create/post STAR emulations as much as I would like to, but I would like to try to do something a little different from now on. I'm going to share some base maps/templates for various STARs that can be used to help out those who may want to create and emulate on their own accord. I'll start off simple, I didn't create these maps, I downloaded them several years ago from a TWC directory or archive website I think. They also had to be cropped to remove the banners/TWC logo. These maps can be used as regional maps for the IntelliSTAR or even the WeatherSTAR XL v3 (2005-2014). Feel free to use these materials as you wish.

I'll post some templates for legacy STARs later.

Ha! I remember those base maps from I think Martin's web server several years ago. They were taken down right when I needed it a year ago and no one would budge to post it.  <_<  :D Any way toxictwister00 I can recreate high quality versions of those maps if you want me to. I have several pieces of DEM and GIS software and can easily recreate them. If you look at my art work topic I recently recreated the DBS forecast maps used from 2004-2011. All I would need to do is change the RGB values in my software.

Sure, go for it! :biggrin:

Btw, your artwork is phenomenal. Definitely some of the best I've seen in my 10 years on this forum community. I don't know if you are considering going into graphic design, but I would encourage you to do it, you have impressive skills. :)

What application will those templates work for?

Something as simple as Microsoft Powerpoint or more advanced as After Effects. I only use After Effects, but I would imagine any application that supports .png files will work just fine.

Here is a higher res re creation of the base maps toxictwister00 posted. They are 4000x1360 and is recommended for regional views only. Since this is GTOPO30 data it doesn't get any more clearer than that. SRTM data would be for local views but I have not downloaded this yet but plan to at a later time.

Please note, in order to preserve the quality, I couldn't import this into a GIS program as it would compress it and blur the image out, so the borders look horrible since I had to overlay it in Photoshop. With that said I have also included a borderless version and you can add your own borders however you wish. Let me know if you want more basemaps and I can consider re creating them.

Here's the zip file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6-Hs46K1Lc9OWdWSGRiTVpmUmc/view?usp=sharing
