Eon competition is going to end soon but we are still trying to make it in time. Our team (Me and LasseL) has nominated me as Team leader.

Here's very quick storyboard four our project. I'm going to add script after this. We are going to use music, dialogue and sound effects in this project too.

None-tha-less, it's good that you took part in this - and I hope that your school gives you the much needed edge to form well in this competition.


The very best of luck to ya!
Hope you can complete this with a great trailer. :thumbsup:

This work looks absolutely cewl!

I can add some music and sounddesign if you want/if needed.

For info, just visit my website: www.arnoldveeman.com (http://www.arnoldveeman.com/)

I also made an example of how my work could relate to visuals. It's a non official thing but there was no music and sound design under it so I just gave it a try. (I haven't got a response about it from them yet) But have a look:

http://www.tyse.nl/Showreel%20Scanline%20VFX/Scanline%20VFX%20showreel%20with%20sound.htm

Best wishes and keep up the good work!

Nice work on the revised script. I looked at it in comparison with the first version you posted, and I think you've really tightened it up. It flows very well, and is probably a littlemore managable for the time remaining. And those shots of Earth are wonderful. I looked back to your early post where you had the shaders broken down. I think I understand how the grayscale shader works, but how do you create the blue glow (I know very little about texturing and shading in 3D :) )? Beautiful work.

VonMarsch
01-11-2007, 11:56 PM
I have worked past three days and nights without sleep to get this done and now I hear this... deadline is now 31th :scream: But thanks cgtalk crew, now we have more time to polist our trailer and hopefully add couple things that I had in mind.

Aerny: Thanks Aerny! Nice example with the sound, pro stuff. Sad to say but we already have a composer for our trailer but thanks for the offer :)

fifty3dragons: Thanks! The "glowshader" is very simple. Put falloff to opacity slot and smooth mix curve with bazier-smooth. Then scroll down to output and enable color map. You have RGB color channels, choose the B and change its value to 2. Choose G and change its value to 1. Choose R and change its value to 0,5. Then go back to your maps rollout and copy your modified falloff from opacity to reflections. No its ready! You can play with the RGB and add some specular level to your shader.

Here's a shot from Red Square which comes batween two newspaper shots. It's 2.5d shot. Background is photoshopped from photos and the Scud is 3d. Shadows are projectioned to plane object with matte/shadow material. I'll post wip shots from the scud model tomorrow.

Nice work, I've seen lots of quick modelling in other entries. And you're delevering fine work in less time. Great job, like the earth model as I like that telescope. Evenso that 2.5d picture is fine, but hell those scud-windows are annoying me. I think those should be less bright and reflect rather stones than sky.

Both thumbs up,
Nils

01-27-2007, 12:57 AM
OZ: Thanks for the compliments! :) Ofcourse you can use digitally painted plates. If we would have more time I would like to paint my own textures from skratch. Well I did some painting but I need to thank NASA for the base textures. But I had to lot of tweaking to get the shaders right.



fifty3dragon: Thanks!



icedays: Patricia is still in progess specially her eyes. I hope I can finish her hair and eyes tomorrow… or actually today (it’s almost morning… modeling modeling!).

Great updates Niten! The Red Square is really promising, as well as all the others shots....would be lovely to look at them animated, but hey, we won't have to wait more for that ! A little suggestion would be about the light in the space sequences: maybe brightening up the lit surfaces and contrasting the pictures would increase the quality....just a though.
Good luck, it's a great work!

Looking good. Those are some great looking images you've been posting.

We had a number of shots we couldn't finish as well, so we simply stuck in color-timed storyboards (which according to the rules of the challenge is perfectly acceptable). It isn't as good as having fully animated sequences, of course, but it did mean not having to revisit the overall timing/pacing, etc, that we'd already established.

Good luck as you finish up!

Finally we have finished our EON trailer! Thanks to everybody!

I think we did good with the time we had. We had to cut some parts off because we simply didn't have enaugh time to render those shots but I think this final version works without those parts quite well. We learned a lot during this process, it was fun and also very stressing. Now we just start waiting for next challenge! :D

Good luck everybody!

Hey, great entry guys! Very well done, especially on such a tight schedule. I think my favourite shot was the final shot of the satelite. Very nice. And that's a great model of the US president too. Looks just like a certain someone. :scream: And Niten, that's a good shot of you in that newspaper. Very military-like! Is that all photograph, or was some of the equipment (guns, masks, etc) composited in afterwards?

Great job! I think it all came together very well.

GonzaloGolpe: Thanks and same to you too :)

fifty3dragons: Thanks, we really had a tight schedule because we started so late but I'm happy that we finished something. I only used photos. I just placed my digital camera to my work rooms shelf and pressed the button. All that military gear is from my "inpiration cabinet" :D You wouldn't believe what is in there :bounce:

spire: thanks :)

Oweron: I finished Mr.P during the final nights polishing. I think he looks hilarious :thumbsup:
