Pick Up: Act Two "Taste of Snow"
Much love everyone who beta'd the animation in August. <3
+There is considerably less lag. Anyone with at least 1 GB of memory shouldn't experience any significant lagging at all.
+Many movie clips blurs have been reduced to lower qualities, replaced with .png images, or removed altogether.
+Frost has been added to the sides of the train.
+Subtitle spelling errors and mismatches have been fixed
There's also been revamping of the audio:
+A more consistent Wind SFX loop has been added to all outside scenes
+A Train SFX loop has been added so that you can hear the train even when the camera is inside a cabin
+Additional Train SFX have been added for authenticity and atmosphere
+Lunacatz has provided updated lines for Hickory with greater enthusiasm
+Trisha's "What are you, Forty?" has been amplified so that it's easier to hear.
Additionally, a Taste of Snow Extras file will be uploaded shortly, which will be where the Pick Up: Extras link will lead to. This will allow me to update the Extras much more easily than the entire Pick Up: Act Two .fla file. The link should be fixed by tomorrow. As well as one last issue I have with a SFX vs. VA conflict in the very beginning of the animation.
But after that--I'm done and moving on to something else. This animation won't ever be perfect, there will always be little things that get to me, which I will accept as part of the learning experience. The real goal is to always improve with my next project, which I hope you guys will stick with me in order to see in the future.
