The "bumpers" on the Cartoon Network have just been updated with 3D environments, all done in Max+ Vray. Any of you guys seen any of it?

I think it's pretty nice work, but then I'm biased.

But why are you biased? Did you work on them?
If so, congrats! Very well done.

Yeah, I'm part of a great little team here at Animal. Not sure if or when it will be shown on the Australian cartoon network, or other countries for that matter.

Hey Greg, just had a look at your site, recognise a lot of the 3dluvr contest stuff in there ;)
you're an aussie? or just shipped over? Just curious, I'm originally from down there, I know Geoff, Toby, Wiro and a lot of the maya team down at AL etc.

nice webpage mate!

Yea, it's some excellent stuff that was done for CNet, over 200 bumpers...I haven't even seen them all. I didn't work on it but my hat's off to that team!
Amcay, gjpetch (Greg) is among other things a top dawg modeler ;)

Wow! That was really really good.
Were they done with minitures (real models)?
I mean, Wow! Those sets looked so real on tv.
Great work you guys,

I watch Cartoon network adult swim through almost every night. I hate that they repeat everynight. Grrrrr. Anyway... the bumpers are done very well. They just opened up Movement Inc! ;)

Slow down dude...if I wanted a life story I'd go to Borders.

03 March 2005, 10:36 AM
Thanks a lot, I'll pass on the congrats to the rest of the team!
I changed to the CNet crew in January (we're currently 9 people on it), a fun project to work on. Brace yourself for a whole new bunch of cool bumps ;)

And stop picking on Alan, it's not his fault he's so popular :D
