So I'm gonna be offering to help make what I like to think are RPG Maker cutscenes for RMVX.
Some examples of what I am talking about are below.
There is a whole bunch of events being used for this one, it normally runs fine, but combining a screen recorder with the scene made it look laggy. It's normally a lot better than the vid makes it out to be
Again it's laggy as all hell because my computer doesn't function well with recording and processing, it's normally smooth.
This one was done in my unofficial game in 10 hours project, it can use a little more polish, but I'm happy with what I achieved from only a 15 minute job, this includes the opening scene. I think I could do better if I am given the time
Check the bottom of the post for an project which will show some more events (and the two events above, but not laggy >_>).
How it Works You describe to me what you want to see happen, in detail. This includes how many people/monster/whatever are in it (doesn't need to be a specific number) and what the player is doing.
If I like your idea, I'll let you know that I'm happy to do it. If this is the case, you'll need to transfer the maps (that I need to make the scene for) onto a new project; also including a transition map (if any). [A transition map is the map that the player transfers from to the event scene.] And any music that you wanted to be used.
Once done, you send that new project to me and I get underway.
I send it back to you once I'm done. Simple, right?
Conditions I'm doing this when I have free time to do so. Don't expect your request to be fulfilled instantly.
We really need some differnt terms for what this is cause I dont think it fits and I been doing this for to long lol. First off I like your EVENTS, but isnt that just what your doing? Really good events... When someone tell me they can ADD cutscenes to a game I ALWAYS think a video, thats just me, maybe im wrong. But since the entire game is run on events shouldn't this be said in different terms??
And doesnt ACE have a movie function now, so you can actually add real cutscenes now?? Id be much more interested in the movies since Ive never even seen a person try and do them.

That is true, but notice how the post says that it's for RPG Maker VX
I'm not really sure what a better name for the topic would be though, it really is just a bunch of events thrown together to make a cinematic like scene (ie no player control).
I always think of videos when I associate the term cutscene as well, unless it's for RPG Maker, still though you are correct. I'll change it
Well dont get me wrong its a important skill, but dont you think you could put that time into making real videos for games? like i said I never seen anyone do it...but I do it lol, I just havent posted it yet cause im waiting for my prize lol, ANYWAYS I think that would make more sense but by all means its not a easy thing to make good events so do whatever is fun for you
