"And now! Here is the Host of 'Jeopardy!'... ...Alex Trebek!"
We take you back to the time of Apple II's, tasty fast food, and cheap cartoons: 1984 with a preview into Project A&Q.
, Here's your Jeopardy 1984 Set.
I had a little bit of trouble with the video wall, because I had a movie running in each video monitor, which slowed down the movie considerably; but I solved that with SnagIt, a screen capture tool that my dad had gotten me for completing the TAKS Test (Standardized Testing here in Texas.) I took a video of the video monitors running through the animation, and then put the video of the monitors into the intro. You can't see it in normal view, but when you zoom in, you can see the degradation of the 'video monitors' video. (
As for the globe in the intro, it's *basically* a .gif file, but in reality, it's a Quicktime movie with alpha transparency, which imports into Flash as uneditable bitmaps, like a .gif file does.
The audio is taken from the Jeopardy! DVD, which I cleaned up a bit to not include the contestants names from the first show, cause when I finish this and it's released, I want the used contestants and names to be changeable, not with fixed to the audio in the intro. (I think those who are reading this got what I'm saying. Yeah you! The one with the Keyboard and Mouse! [
I didn't want to take the time to make a Flash Version of Alex Trebek, cause I'm lazy
Anyway, here you go, so enjoy! ENJOY DAMN YOU!!
"Thanks for tuning us in! See you next time on 'Jeopardy!"
