24 Intro


Standard Member
Im trying to replicate the intro sequence from the show 24 but dont know how or which programme to use.

Any help would be gratefully recieved.




Do you mean the yellow liquid crystal segments that blink into life to form the number "24"? Or the multiple live frames on the screen at once? The latter should not be too difficult to replicate using PC video editing software - it would probably have to be a fairly powerful PC to do the edit, but once assembled should play fine.

The 24 LCD segment build is actually quite subtle, the colouring of the segments is not entirely even giving it an authentic slightly "burned in" LCD effect. I suspect this would be the biggest challenge - as each segment is a geometric shape it would be relatively easy to animate, rendering it in a way that it wouldn't look like a cartoon would be more challenging.

You can probably achieve it in Blender, which is an open-source animation suite, give youself some time to learn though, the concepts and software are not trivial. http://www.blender.org/cms/Home.2.0.html

Good Luck


i once did the lcd coutdown with a prgramme called Swish, its a flash like software but gives you the option to output to full frame AVI
