08-01-2005, 08:37 AM
Hey guys, Where are we standing, I am a bit lost here ....

08-01-2005, 09:33 AM
the storyboard looks great! Will be intressting to see the results, are you going to go for almost complete cg or not? ex. the shot where the helicopter flyes over the city, will that be completely 3d? However, good luck and enjoy ;)

amir jahanlou: things are going fairly ok, we have started the modeling, and is finished with the planning. We has also made a Schedule for when thinks should be ready. How long time will it take until your finished with the job you are doing and can work with us again? We already have one model ready for texturing

08-01-2005, 10:20 AM
Hey, Send me the model, I'll start to do the texturing, My timing is in a way that I can arrange to take things in parallel, So don't worry and send me the things which need to be textured.
You can send it at which has a big capacity.

Can you please send me the storyboards as well cause i can't see them any more on the thread.

Alaska Iceberg WIP....

This is what i am working now ....

Question... how can i make i nice textures for the icebergs? on this example i am using SSS but i think is more complicate, do i need to use more layers or can one single shader do the job ?
any sugestion thanks ...


08-05-2005, 12:24 PM
For the iceberg, I would suggest displacing the living heck out of it. Put very finely displaced creases all along it. Also, sharpen sone ofthe edges (modeling). Looks great!

08-10-2005, 11:27 AM
the file sever i use is qurently down, so im sorry for that.

hare are some updates :

08-10-2005, 05:23 PM
Oh, this is starting to look really nice! When comes the textures?!

Keep it up, peace!

08-22-2005, 07:06 PM
Now im back, I had a major PC crash of some kind, here is a smal update on the chopper. I know i told i would finish it about a week ago or something, bu life is hard =\

Edit : I have also started to work on a basic MEL script to control some of the atributes om the chopper, like the rotation speed, as it is now, i think i got a realsitick RPM rate, but i guess no one will see it anyway so.. :P

08-22-2005, 07:56 PM
Here is a WIP shot from when the camera moves in on the city, created by SePu

the clip (

08-23-2005, 08:38 AM
Hi H3r0 the chopper looks good.. I wouldn't worry too much about the RPM rate. some textures and it is done....
I saw Sepu video yesterday, I liked too..

ok this is WIP not very good but getting there.. no textures or lighting yet only a shoot of the ice when breaking up...

I have major problems with maya yesterday, because the amount of polys... (the Icebergs)
how can i reduced the amount of polys Display on the screen, but render all the Polys?

Thanks Keep up the good work Locos
