A video I made over the last few days, just for practise, serves no purpose, but an altered version of this will be used for a future Machinima of mine.
'The Revelations' features promotional images from Half Life 2, as well as my own images and other images of Half Life 2. It uses 2.5D, as learnt previously from Andrew Kramer down at VideoCopilot.net
Optical Flares, a plugin from Video Copilot was used, I'm sure by now you can guess, I love lens flares. Optical Flares does that, as well as much more.
The Music used is 'Defense Mechanisms', by The Hamster Alliance, used with direct permission from Hamst3r.
