Does it have to be ground based track? or we are free to do anything as long as it involves a couple of manned vehicles trying to outrun each other in a fixed track?

I apologize.. But I have not understood, it is necessary to use only this model for races or necessary to make some more devices. Race will be between identical devices or different?
sorry for my english

You can use your own vehicles if you wish.
The attached model is there for people who need it.

Hi,
should the scene be a racing scene, or more of a preparation scene, before the race actually starts?

I may enter this time around, but I got a few questions...

I was thinking of taking it in a vfx/compositing direction, where the vehicle would be shot against greenscreen and comped into a live action/digital environment. I'd probably end up digitally adding things onto the vehicle, Is this allowed? Does the vehicle HAVE to be 3d? Does it have to be a one-wheeled bike?

Hey!

I want to join but my idea is that the cars are racing in the sky, ie racing jet car style with floating beacons showing the route.

Can I do this?

Thanks :)

Am I out of the contest if I can't do a realistic render? The word realistic scares me.

Any chance of an extension ? :cry: So much has been happening at the moment so I have not been able to get a proper schedule together.

I see so many great entries that need more time. I think that extension is a must have in this case.

whats the original due date, this thursday? I worked feverishly this weekend, to make sure it will be ready for thursday (i think) but a few extra days would allow me to tighten some stuff up.

EDIT: I'm actually a little confused on what the current official deadline is. You started the original fxwar post on the 13th of July, and then said we had 1 month. In the original post you also state something about August 24th, but you say dateline, did you mean deadline?

yeah, any news on the update? .. And actually, I'm a little in doubt about what to do then my movie is done. Is a youtube video enough to show?

I think it says in the main challenge post, that he wants a quicktime sorenson 3 video. I usually re-export my animations from quicktime pro, which oddly enough doesn't have sorenson 3 as an option. I tried sorenson 3 out of premiere, and it was quite alot larger then H264, which though i hate due to what it does to the gamma, I don't see a viable alternative due to the file size. My animation is 1:47 :eek:

This is more of a question for the FXWars overall, but what is the maximum team size for these challenges, specifically the upcoming one?
