The foleys of Final Fantasy XIII

The foleys of Final Fantasy XIII

...well, more like "the" foley since this short video released on Final Fantasy XIII's official website only shows the recording of one single sound. The clip features a sound engineer shaking a metallic glove in synchronisation with a little excerpt of cinematic. Fascinating.

He's making part of the sound that the soldiers make when walking I guess. But I miss the footstep sound, they probably add that later on.

I absolutely loved the footsteps of Judges (and slodiers) in FFXII! It has some kind of weight or something, gives more realistic feeleing to it. Keep the good work SE.

lol. Its kind of a dumb video but I think its cool for people who like to do animation and things like that to know how they make all their stuff, since Square has probably the best, or most realistic 3d animation movie designing.

now where do i get myself a pair of armored gauntlets to make the sound for my movie....

OMFG they do this sort of thing for every movie and every sound! Damn it makes sense waiting all this time to get the game I guess. lol.

I think the example is rather unimpressive.
I’ve seen making offs from movies where the use “things” you would never expect to make that kind of sound. Using gloves of a fullplate to generate the rattling sound of armors is rather uninspired tbh.

yep foley artists and sound designers are wacky people. try and find info on how they made the sounds from the original star wars movies (lightsabers, tie fighters, etc...) crazy!
