CgTalk:FXWars! ROSWELL 1947!
Render a realistic animation of a Crashing Flying Saucer.
That is it.
The entry with the best SIMULATION (of the crash) will be selected by an open vote. (You may add an detailed animation of the ocean swells as a bonus) The winner will get bragging rights and a small banner designed by me.
April 9 12:00 PM
(You have ONE MONTH & WEEKS to do the challenge.)
TYPES OF ENTRY:You may do one of these types of entries:
This is the type of entry that would be used to explain the precise dynamics of the submitted model. Imagine you have been sub contracted by the History Channel to explain precisely how the crashing of a falling object works.
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.
But keep in mind the key thing that I expect to see in all entries is accurate SIMULATIONS of a crashing saucer.
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 SIMULATION of the crashing saucer .
The best single shot/sequence will be selected by an open vote.
The winner will get bragging rights and a small banner
designed by me.
The animation and simulations (if any) must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.
