Something not so usefulI made some videos for another game some years ago and would love to make one for Evolve.
There are just some problems that make it difficult for Evolve. Games like CoD, CS are much quicker than Evolve. One kill (quickscope, trickshot, ect) take just a second or two. Leave some seconds before and after the kill and you have maybe 6-8 seconds for each good clip. Put a lot of them together, add intro, outro and some music and you are done.
Evolve on the other hand is sloooow. I can't really think of something quick enough in Evolve to put it in a video edit like the ones you posted. Great Evolve moments are usually close matches in the last dome at the relay or something. Or you combo a full team to death in one arena. Those are epic moments if you play it or watch it live, but in such a video edit? idk if that works. A full orbital on an evolving monster is great in game, but in such a video edit? From Hank's perspective? It just doesm't look spectacular enough.
What I could think of would be “faking” a match with friends in a custom. When you think of a “story” and specific situations beforehand and then tell your friends what to do. You are observer and capture the right moments. That could become a great video if done right, but it’ll take some time. If I weren’t busy with work and playing in tournaments, I would probably do it myself ^^
I started learning after effects by doing a little intro clip for me and by following tutorials. A good site with tutorials is >videocopilot<. You can scroll down and watch one of his older, more basic tutorials. Hover over a picture to see a preview of the effect.
I followed this one >Fly by Titles< which is easy and shows a lot of basic stuff, but is still interesting and fun to do. Another one you could try is >Light glow<.
Remember tho, After Effects and especially Cinema 4D are no programs you just learn in a day. I would just focus on After Effects first, as c4d is too complex for just a little 1 sec effect in a video.
Think of a cool effect you want to do, then google how to do it and follow tutorials. That’s gonna be the easiest way. Just don’t do it the other way around, I mean, looking for tutorials before you got any idea what to do. You’ll just end up copying others and learning nothing.
