MAKE SURE YOU WATCH THE CREDITS. There is an additional scene in the credits that is pretty important to what happens between this game and the next.
Here it is! After months of waiting, here is my movie edit of Assassin's Creed 2. I was working on another movie, the soon to be released Buck and Drake 3: Buck to the Future, (shot in the summer of 2011) and I also got a better graphics card and CPU for better performance, as AC1 had frame rate issues.
As before, the goal of these projects is to present the story in a way that non gamers can understand. This is done by including any cutscenes and minimal gameplay necessary to understanding what's going on. I will not cut anything that would lead to plot holes or confusion.
I try to remove as many game indicators as possible, such as the HUD, and thankfully the AC series allows you to disable the HUD, but unfortunately that doesn't quite remove everything. There are still text prompts, sync notices, occasional button prompts, and sometimes the game itself bugs out and displays the HUD anyway. Thankfully, the story explains these things as being part of the Animus.
My PC Specs and settings are:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480
8 GB RAM
1280x720 @ 72Hz
50 fps average frame rate
23.976 fps capture
I tried running at 1080p, but I believe the HDD access for capturing 1080p in real time caused far too much lag.
