My God, I have just witnessed history. This is unbelievably realistic and chilling. With the exception of the surface debris, bubbles, and fog, this must be exactly as it was.

Thanks everyone! While i have yet to get "Fog" iv made a effect that seems to simulate a haze that does the job well enough and i have made bubbling water/wake to put in as well and i think its done

Anyone disagree with the way the ship sinks?

Thanks, so iv fixed the lighting issue and have it to what i want, i also now have added explosions of air escaping as the final plunge is occurring, while i think it could be released now i want to add a wake and other mis stuff to it as i think it can be better

Still looking for a better steamship whistle if anyone knows a good one, again if anyone has any issues with the sinking now is the time to speak up as its most likely this is the final one or i might do it again to change the puffs of steam to more splashes of air that i figured out how to do last night.

I was just watched the Horror film Annihilation (Great film) but that 1st minute reacting Captain Kendall's tense wait knowing something was about to happen and then the Storstad materialising out of nowhere was even scarier than the film. :eek:

The only minor thing I change, is the audio between the Storstad's first whistle blast and the collision (0:59 - 1:10) as I think we should hear the water from her bow wake because it would show the ship's momentum is too powerful to stop increasing the tension (But this is pretty minor so don't worry).

Overall, the whole thing perfectly illustrates the fear and terror Kendall and the passengers must have felt. Well done!

Just did a 5 hour render of the Video, everything turned out great, except a filter did not carry over so the Animation is now to dark, will fix it and set it to render again tonight

So i think its almost done, running through this again i heard a audio error i need to fix during the sinking of one of Titanic's rockets, but i would like a couple of people to run through it to see if i made any typo, editing errors ect in th animation, doc section or the credits

Watched though it, and apart from a few very petty / picky issues, it's great.

__________________________________
The same photograph is used at 1:41 and 2:44 which is a bit noticeable.

I could be VERY wrong, but the postcard of the "Landing Stage Liverpool" at 3:23 doesn't look like the Empress of Island.

Not to sound picky about the Collision scene (again), at 24:46 but to see the Storstad before hearing the whistle makes the collision / jump-scare a bit less scary (then again, having already seen it could be just me expecting it). Other than that, it's great.

Also I not sure if this is the case, but the text's size and positioning seem's to change during the sinking and this is a bit noticeable and the times vary between minute and seconds. Sorry.
24:55, 25:18, 26:38, 28:33, 36:52, 37:28, 37:33 ,38:49 (just for referencing)

Other than that, the credits titles just need colon's on them like the others titles:

Material Used: 1:25:39
Footage Used: 1:26:21
Inspiration: 1:27:19
Special Thanks To Everyone At: 1:28:01 (Also typo of Everyone as "Evreyone" )

__________________________________
Sorry, but other than that, and everything is perfect and that end credits scene is oscar-worthy!

Don't worry about releasing it as soon as possible it will be worth the wait.

By the way, you probably thought of this, but have you though of releasing 2 Empress of Ireland videos? Meaning one is the entire documentary and the other is just the simulation (partly to avoid "she only sank in X amount of time, why the video this long?" kind of comments.
