Thank you for your tip! Now I can upload my pictures, too. And I learned something about "the milestones", what I ignored before...

Your pictures looks very interesting! I will see your animation, but at first I have to download a flv-player for mac.
So long.

DrLong

Edit: Okay, now I have seen your video. Wonderfully music! And the spaceunits are flying very fine. But you will need some views from the pilots, fighting to win, too?
I am sure, it will come soon.

Now to my Story:
In a Galaxy far away,starts a Race,where my Alien(Styx) and a Human build
a Team against other Challangers.The Human is on the Way to his friend,who
waits for him by the Racecar.he is nervous,because the Human is getting late.
Will he came on time and will the two win the Race?
See and find out.

I hope i wrote the most thinks right,because my English isn`t the best.

Thanks to you all and CGTalk for the Contest and this great Time.

Hey Khalestra,

Good to see your final entry! Was a long haul but I but you're glad you're done! (as we all are :D)

My main suggestions for your future projects would be to concentrate on getting some good lighting in your scenes....working with a 3 point lighting system, etc. That will really help give your animations some depth. The explosions at the end looked good though...a nice climax for your race :)...it's also nice seeing you experiment with some creative cinematography.

Good luck in the challenge :)

Khalestra

thanks very much ivanisavich,now i am very proud that you take a look at my final.yes
i know about my problems with the lightning, i have tried a 3 point lightning,but the result was not as i expected (my old maya version?) so i make the lightning with this plug in.
i have some more bugs in my finished,i know about but i could not fix this at this time.

but now it is over,the work is done,best luck to you too:applause::thumbsup:
your work is unbelievable:arteest:
