1. Introduction
Push The Limits is my first longer GPL video. I wanted to demonstrate how GPL itself pushed the limits of gameplay and how the people of the GPL community push their own or other limits every day by creating amazing things like alien hotlaps, tools, add-ons and so on.
This video was made over a period of nearly half a year, with some big breaks inbetween due to lack of freetime. The first ideas came to my mind even a lot earlier, when tools like Camera Control Master weren't available yet. Although it's relatively short in time, Push The Limits has, I think, by far the most special effects ever seen in a GPL movie, and that's the main reason why it took so much time to make it.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy watching this movie as much as I enjoyed fiddling with it. Have fun! ;)
