THE CHALLENGE:

Render a realistic animation sequence of a Next Generation Race.

So show us how racing will look 50 years from now...
We need car designs, track designs that will wow us.

The entry with the most creative VEHICLE ANIMATION will be selected by an open vote. (You may add an detailed animation of a good old vehicle crash as bonus) The winner will get bragging rights and a small banner designed by me.


DATELINE:

Monday August 24 12:00 PM
(You have ONE MONTH to do the challenge.)






TYPES OF ENTRY:You may do one of these types of entries:



Forensic Animation

This is the type of entry that would be used to explain the precise dynamics of a future vehicle. Imagine you have been sub contracted by the SPEED CHANNEL to explain precisely how racing in the next 50 years will be.
Freeform Entry

You may use the provided models (and models you submit) to create an entry. The core requirement for this type of entry is to have fun.
For ideas you may want to check the Screenwriting, Storyboarding and Concept Creation forum for story ideas (and if you use one of their story ideas you have to give credit to the writer)
CgTalk:Unofficial Writing Challenge:1 -NEO Race (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=156&t=782764) (core thread)

one page story involving the racer of team Beehard who feels a little old (link (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showpost.php?p=5973430&postcount=2)) by Matthijs Schaap
female pilot remembers race after accident, the hook: she was wired to the car making it a part of her.(link) (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showpost.php?p=5977586&postcount=3) by Matthijs Schaap



But keep in mind the key thing that I expect to see in all entries is realistic look of future racing.



CHALLENGE SPECIFIC RULES:


No work taken DIRECTLY from an existing tutorial. You may use an existing tutorial only for reference.
You may use a pre existing model(or use any of the models provived) , as long as you give credit to the creator. If you cant model, use simple shapes, since we are interested in the simulation. (But teams are encouraged, and if you are a modeler, you can make your model available)
You may provide a heavily edited animation with all the trimmings (hell add live action if you want), as long a you provide another PLAIN animation of a side view of the working ANIMATION of the vehicle .
Voting:
NEW RULE! The best single shot/sequence will be selected by an open vote.


BEST ANIMATION
The winner will get bragging rights and a small banner
designed by me.

Is that really a FX challenge ?

It's going to take people more time to design the "cars", circuit and crowd than making FX...

Anyway...

have fun doing this nice challenge

Speaking from experience doing a stadium filled with a crowd is itself a major FX.

I think I'll try my luck on this one :) I've allready started the Vehicle modeling, damn I hate modeling. I'll make some simple models and then on to animation :)

All I need is time really.

I'm sorry for asking. I haven't read all 500 fxwars threads.

When I make my fxwars thread, does that mean I have entered the competition, or do I sign up somewhere?

howdy, say i watched paramount's links for dynamics crash. just wondering if i animate my car first, then duplicate and do all the dynamics setup , and then do my best to set initial velocity to match the animation i had going would be a good way to do it. I'll give it a shot and see what happens but thought I'd ask the masses on different techniques.
