View Full Version : FXWARS: THE RACE - Aaron Plath

This will be my first CG Challenge, and it's kinda ironic that this idea would be chosen because I've kinda been toying around with the idea for a while. I'm going for the tried and true futuristic race. I like that kind moreso because your not hindered as much by historical basis, so you can come up with anything you like. I'm still undecided as to the setting of the hovertrack, whether inside a cityscape (which a few tests in Maya proved alot harder to pull off then expected), or just out in the countryside, maybe an aquatic world. Here is a recent test I did in Maya, just trying different track curvatures. Also it was test to check render time, as the image below used a custom motion blur in Mental Ray. I'm excited.:)

Well, it's time to turn it in. I had fun making this, althought it's only about 95% complete. There are 1 or 2 shots where I wanted to comp in some grinding/sparks and whatnot, but there were some complications, and I didn't have time to account for them. I might do another challenge if something interesting comes up.:)

P.S. Sorry for quality, I think YouTube crunched it or something because it looks way better then you can see.:sad:
P.S.S. Final program use is as follows: Maya, Combustion, Vue 5.
