Hi to all again...
In this time (sorry for my bad english - i like to speak universal bitmap language... hahaha)

Hahaha rubber ball?
I saw an old dog.Small, very fat walking very slowly, and his testicles were very large... (looking around can inspirate on street).

In my case, I am now learning how to animate and rigging.
This contest and I am taking as a challenge for me. Not to win awards, I simply do things as I saw in the last contest. (inspiration and motivate me)

NVart artspace entry (http://www.infoarq.es/wireforest.jpg) (see this one.... i hope you like)

If you are thinking about going back to compete, I will be happy because I love your work.

see you later.... ok??????

Hi,

Now i will go to sleep. but machine work at night.

This is a frame of this scene. problably I uses a big resolution to make movie. (1280x480)

Frame Render Time: about 6 minutes. (110 frames)

Thanks and see you tomorrow.

It's looking very cute again!

one question: how did you do the clouds?
i hope you still are gonna add the flames of the engine. The heat haze might be a little off :twisted:

anyway, probably fun when rendering and not having too much rendertime. How long for a render? I already am at about 4 minutes per frame at 640x480. That's a killer for animation already.

cheers and much fun

Hi Nico...

This scene was rendered in Xtream6... belive me itīs a fantastic toy!!

Clouds are spectral atmosphere. and you can add volumetric clouds... but this enviroment tipe are very very slow to render...

my secret weapon to down render times are a good machine...

Are you using fluids for the clouds? Also, I think something that would make that shot a little better would be to add some camera shake. Would make it feel a little turbulent, or like you were flying beside it type of thing. Great stuff, keep going!!!

I used metacloud in xtream 6 for lightwave. you are right in next part of scene i added turbulence...

give ime a little time and post a opengl video to see it. ok?

this is my second sample.
i used some camera shake as said my friend XminusOne.

this is a low resolution and opengl render but you can see the effect. (i hope...)

Yes, your right again...In previous anims shuttle have a little shake on runway...
but these keyframes was deleted... (and donīt ask why?? i donīt know.... hahahaha)

other detail, are the back trees, i donīt like much (Pascal from Eon said the same...)

OK, i will change these details. (now iīm working on a client project... but some times turn my head and see the mac power off. ok, i only turn on to see again the test... but. problably i will make some anims and i donīt work..... belive me... this anim can be adict...)

Hey Tomas,

great progress man. I wish i got much further than i am now. But for some reason time goes faster than you think. By the end of next month i took 2 weeks hollyday so i can work on it almost fulltime :bounce:
With a little shifting in work i can push it to 3 weeks.

Anyways, since i also think the time given is way to short compared to last challenge, i think the deadline could be moved again. But let's not count on it and do as much as possible.


And by the way, my mac is always screaming to me saying = TUURRNN ME OOOOOFFFF AND GO TO SLEEEEEEEEEEEP !!

cheers man
