View Full Version : FXWars! THE OCEAN!: Arcus

02 February 2006, 10:48 AM
Hello, this is the first time for me doing an animation in a challange and I hope I can
create something useful. 3D is my hobby and I have only about 50 hours in my sparetime
to finish this (rendering overnight). I use a ship model I modeled myself about 2 years ago.
Here is a final render and some wireframes. Links to testanimation will follow soon.

Hope to finish this challange.

Forgot to say that I am doing THE SHIP :-).
Here are 2 links to my first test animations. I tried to become a feeling for
size and motion of my ship in stormy sea. Colors + Ligthing will be change for
final of course.

The first one is an overview

The second one is with onboard cam

not bad!!
can you tell us more about the software used? renderer?
with a cool light, particles and details and secondary motion (cables, flags...) on the ship this could be great

Thanks Loran,

Everything is done in Lightwave. For the water I use a plugin named NatureFX.
You can read more about it here . Unfortunately there is no
foam shader in the Lightwave version so I have to use procedurals.

Here is a new test picture with darker mood and some volumetric lights added.

Here is a small update I rendered last night.
Most of it is still wip and for testing purpose.
C&C are always welcome.

Thanks for watching
