Interactive Turntable! You can drag and spin the scene. Auto-rotate will start after a bit of inactivity. (Sorry mobile users! Sweating a little... )

Music: J2 & Chroma Music - Heroes Will Rise
Characters: Lil Pip, Steel Hooves, Calamity, Velvet Remedy (from FoE) and Blackjack, Morning Glory, Rampage, P21 (from FoE: PH).
Created using: Source FilmMaker, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Flash Professional

Had the idea for something like this a few months ago and decided that, if I was going to do it, I was going all out.  There is a few errors I may fix on this later, but will keep like this for now.

This took probably over a month to make. The entire thing is a scenebuild that was on the verge of crashing my machine just to preview.  I wanted to add more, but the 0.8 fps was getting to be a bit difficult to work with. CURSE YOU! 

If you want the ActionScript I used to make the interactive Flash stuff, here is the file.  Do not expect me to explain how to implement it, as I do not really know a lot about Flash myself.  Technically I have a web development degree, which helped in modifying and merging code found around the web and fitting it to my need.

Resource Count:
-360 Frames
-878 Model Groups
-116 Lights
-33 Particle Effects

The camera is locked to a model that is centered at the middle of the ponies and spins.  The camera maintains its distance and keeps looking at the middle as it goes around.

Do you still have the project file for this? I may want to try and render this in 4K60 on my PC, however I'd first have to see where to get all the models/particles/effects etc. from. But I love this!

:iconargodaemon:
argodaemon Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2017  Hobbyist Filmographer
I did the math and it would take ~480 hours to render the entire sequence for the length of the song in 4k60.  720p was ~90sec per frame.  Nonetheless, I don't share project files.  Too messy, too many questions regarding model locations and potential for stolen content.

There's a tool where you can easily export each and every model, sound, effect etc. into a folder.
But yeah, I get why you don't want to share.

That said tho, making a perfect camera loop (which I'd try) only requires to render a full and maybe a bit more of the whole circle around that.

It is meant to be. It isn't video. It is 360 pictures, so the slower you move, the choppier it is.
