Rage Shift [SFM|GIF] by argodaemon Rage Shift [SFM|GIF] by argodaemon
This is a kinda of "reskin" of the other one I did (see below).  Normally don't like to rehash, but I wanted to see if I could make a rage-shift Twilight [Reference]. Result: not to bad. Unsure how usable it would be if animated, but nonetheless.  Was done as I had an idea for something I want to work on, but need to know what is possible before jumping in.  Opinions are welcome and encouraged.  I love to improve and get the most from seeing things through the eyes of others.

:happybounce:God this little guy is cute.:happybounce:
 
Anyways, only animating changes I did was adding a bit more movement to the wings and small change to the head movement.  Everything else was just model, color and particle changes.  And some heavy photoshopping in post to get the colors to look awesome. I am a dummy!
 
This one is slightly bigger then the other because, for some reason, dropping it to the same size really messed with the colors and quality.  This is the best I could do without making the entire thing all pixelated. Sweating a little...
 
Based off this, but with fire and stuff:

Technical stuff, for those that usually are curious how I do things:
The mane and tail were given transparent textures so they would disappear. The particle effects for the mane and tail are from Dota (from dire_fx.pcf, effect is called fire_barracks).  It was modified to have a push to the left and shrunk down. The portion of the effect for the mane that controlled the brightness was heavily modified to have a drastically higher spawn rate to make it smoother.  The fire on the ground is the same effect, just only set to emit for 0.5 seconds.  The embers from such, as well as all the other particles, were built from scratch myself in SFM.

The eyes had the vmt modified from a type of "eyes" to "VertexLitGeneric" and had the line of "$selfillum 1" added so it ignored lighting.  The camera bloom was increased to give them a stronger glow.  I didn't have the eyes glow stronger when the fire goes off like the last one as it effected the fire and other lights this time.  Wouldn't have had the same effect.

Where do you get the Dota 2 assets from ?? Do you download the game and it appears in SFM dlc tab or do you get bits and pieces from here and there ??

I drag and drop from the game folder. I believe they have to be extracted with GCFscape, though.

Quite impressive !

say I've seen plentyfull of your creations, and I know that you are really skilled, so maybe can you give me tip about the $selfillum command, I tried to make my ponies iris glow, and only the iris.

but failed miserably every time. : (

I've made the alpha channel for the left and right iris, without results.

I apologise in advance if this shouldn't be posted here.

If you want just the iris to glow, I can't really help you. Pupils and eyes work differently then other textures.  I do not know if selfillum would work right.

if you can make this a screensaver, that would be amazing. actually theres a lot of these that would make a great screensaver. you should make a compilation of them to play randomly as a screensaver

I did manage to make this into a screensaver using program called Axialis Screensaver Producer 4. its pretty simple and can make screensavers from gifs, flash or videos and can even have sound. but the image is still too small for it to look good. if you made it more of a fullscreen size then it would really be a great screensaver.

I have it rendered in 720p. It is what I used for conversion to a GIF.  It does need a bit of work to get the particles to loop, though. Will try to do it tomorrow.

I tried. I just goggled 'animated GIF to screensaver' and found a few programs. but unfortunately the pic is too small and when stretched out it looses all its amazing detail. so I gave up. it about 375% zoomed to be about full screen for me and it is defiantly noticeable loss of smoothness
