I decided to work on my Compositing/Animation skills in 3dmax and Combustion and to learn the software a bit more.
I've never really composited anything major before so I decided to design and set up a very short shot to practise my skills..
I took a lot of still photo's and downloaded some stock images of buildings to paint together a background, then I modelled and animated a futuristic aircraft and put it all together. The video also shows the making of. It took about 2 and 1/2 days to complete the shot including rendering. I didn't really plan the shot to have any story as things were built up as I went along.
