Re: 3D Animated Test Shots

Glad to hear about the progress!
I'm loving that rendered shot you aquaintence sent over. The lighting and animation look pretty good.

It does look like the ship passes through a part of the bridge as it decends, but otherwise I'm loving it.

Looking good! Keep it up.

Re: 3D Animated Test Shots

Yes, I felt like the ship and also the camera clipped the beam. I also felt like the ship sped up a bit after it landed, rather than slowing due to friction. I'm not exactly sure without looking at your motion curves.

Also, and this something that bothers me even in professional CG shots, is that the camera should have realistic physical limitations as far as speed, accelleration, change of direction, etc. Maybe it has difficulty keeping up with the ship it's shooting, maybe struggles to keep the ship in camera frame, as if it were actually being shot from another ship rather than a virtual camera. Even if there isn't supposed to be another ship there, traditionally in live action we've seen things shot from helicopters or cranes, so when a virtual camera doesn't have the physical limitations of a traditional camera, it can feel floaty and fake, even if the subject is well animated.

the bridge scene is now built at the micro scale, no idea if its going to be used but hey, this only took 3 hours to build so its not like it took any time really mini/wink

And another small (medium sized) update:

Re: 3D Animated Test Shots

And another week has passed!

New member on the script team, the other guy hasn’t provided any content so far so I had to move on sadly.

As always, if you would like to help, there are many things that can be done that I can’t do or would help speed up the building process, and your assistance would be greatly appreciated!

The tower construction grows!

Re: 3D Animated Test Shots

Another week has passed, this week 2 new script writers have come on board, Pritchard & Kenton.

Also, the wall was built & the reactor is on its 2nd version.
