Blizzard is still doing these in-house correct? I heard a rumor they started to outsource some things?

I really hope Blizzard has their ILM moment someday soon and takes the plunge in feature animation. In my opinion, their blend of stylized realism is one of the most visually appealing in the business... the whole time I was watching this I kept thinking, "TinTin wishes it looked this good."

was swimming @ the sea, completely disconnected from CG or internet for that matter - but this was in my inbox when i came - the link to the trailer - a bit bad animation with the human char, too monster like for me, but the rest, touch of realism and level of detail. DAMN

[QUOTE=benne;924308]Loved the cg! Blizzard should make a movie! But then they should let someone else create the story.. [/QUOTE]You're kidding right? Blizzard is awesome in creating stories, characters, drama, suspense, unpredictability. Starcraft 1 and Brodwar had a story that even best science fiction writers would be proud of. If somebody made a movie with that story, I think it would be great movie by all means. Of course, som good director, not some B director or Michael Bay. We would get mixture of Aliens atmosphere, and Starship Troopers action scenes, with great story going on.

I liked watching it but it didn't really represent the story as well as I'd have imagined.That is the focus on Horde vs Alliance, and they're joining forces? :PBut cool none the less. Kung fu panda haters can hate all they want.

I think that people consider this trailer too serious, and that's why they don't like it. Maybe it's because this is the first time Blizz made something comedy, and nobody expect it (which is maybe their intention, after all). So, relax people... It's just fun, with great graphics. If you're thinking of this story, and atmosphere, too serious, you're becoming funny :)

[QUOTE=Freespace-3DT;924132]Well I think it's one of their best creations yet. I won't convince anyone of that, each has their opinion. I think it's becoming "cool" to trash on Blizzard's work lately and this saddens me. Anyway, that's all I have to say.[/QUOTE]well about the cinematic.. it really bothers me somehow that a cinematic where Arthas sticks Frostmourne into his father's throat is in the same world, like this one wich is basically a Disney movie. and don't get me wrong! it's shiny, they did an awsome work again on how it looks, but the directing? it starts with epic music and mood and suddenly turnes into a family afternoon disney movie. so i cannot say it's their best production ever, and not because like talking trash on Blizz. but i really hope they will take a more serious topic for the next cinematic.. [B]off topic[/B]and in general about Blizz recently.. i still cannot wait until Starcraft 2 - hots comes out!! coz with Starcraft 2 they did an excellent job, even though the multiplayer is annoying for me to play and only because of myself, coz i'm really lame at it, they did a perfect job, regarding graphics, music, gameplay, everything (slight disappointment was only the voice over's 20%, like most protoss voices, carrier, zealots, etc) but i can understand if people are a bit mad to Blizz after Diablo 3, coz as a big fan of diablo 2 i am too. they just couldn't handle it and that is it. i don't wanna talk trash, coz i hope they learn from it and become an even better company by their mistakes, but i think eeryone makes mistakes, so i cannot blame them. if they will continue to do so, then i'll be really disappointed but i have high hopes on them the'll learn from D3 [B]off topic[/B] off

maybe the kungfu panda guys are warcraft 3 funs who knows....I am wondering why so many people are bringing up po even on youtube the Pandarians have been a 'joke' race/group in Warcraft way before kung fu panda came out. When I saw that movie I thought they copied brewmaster. It would have been cool if he used drunken fist as his kung fu style and did his fire breath.

[QUOTE=Not-Registered;924170]a panda doing kung fu? i see that in someone else place... mmm[/QUOTE][B]offtopic[/B]The Pandaren brewmaster has been around a lot longer than Po my friend you have to play frozen throne(2003) and unlock a secret tower defence stage win that stage and you can play with him on one stage. Or you can play multiplayer and hire him from the tavern.In reign of chaos he is on Illidian weapons, If you use flame strike with Kael it forms the pattern of a Panda's face. I think he is the mascot/signature of Blizzard artist Samwise Didier.[B]Back on topic [/B]pretty funny trailer and good looking to I think where the Pandaren Brewmaster is involved you can't expect anything too serious.I bring Pandamonium

To some extent I agree with Munkybutt. I felt that the trailer wasn't as strong or enticing as other pieces that Blizzard has made, but as Tank said, the cinematic was partly to introduce you to the Panderians (?). In that respect it succeeded. Visually this is brilliant. I'm always amazed at what Blizzard can do, and for the most part this was no different. Though I still believe that Wrath of the Lich King's trailer was the best out of all of them for WoW.

Wow everything in there just was very pretty with a good touch of that Warcraft artistic style...Really, this kind of work keeps me motivated to invest time into these 3d programs (Makes you wish you could be the animator, sculptor, environmental modeler, and post production all as one human being with the same skill they all presented) EDIT* And Lighter/Compositor as I just read the previous post lolMaking cinematic like these are a dream career!

I've played WoW a total of 10 minutes in my whole life, I have never liked the franchise and I most likely never will but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the gorgeous eye-candy that the cinematic offer.Sorry but this is a 3D/CG forum, don't let your feelings for the game/company determine what you think about the visuals.

well i liked it from cgi point of view. i agrea that the game and storie is little bit lame and dull, but i have a golden rule - if i cant make better than i cant call it bad. ofcourse they have made better ones for starrcraft and previous versions of WOW such as cataclyzm (dont realy know how it spells right and am too tired to search now) but non the less - a great peace . and to joint the debate - who now makes realy awesome trailers? blizzard is on top of that trailer making hill for now. and they obey the same marketing rules as everyone ellse :) feel free to dissagrea - its only my opinion. :)

the premise of this trailer was NOT to be uber dark, threatening or foreboding. the idea is to have it be more lighthearted, funny and playful, because that's what the pandaren are. i feel the nailed it.

It has no soul, every blizzard trailer is emotive, has a flavor of darkness and grittiness to it.This looks good, of course it does, but it is like watching a 26 year old woman who has been a wh0re for 10 years dance;pretty, dead eyed with no real effort made other than what is barely necessary to get her customer off.Just compare it to previous x-pac trailers, WoTLK's chilled me to my spinal fluid, this makes we want to remove mine so I can't feel disappointed anymore.
