View Full Version : Submarine

07 July 2008, 05:02 PM
I made a submarine model with Lightwave 7.5 and then an animation with it. There is some bombs and torpedoes in scene. I transformed whole animation to flash format and now I test some After Effects there. I am just started to learn AF, so there is nothing spectacular. You can see animation so far here:

the shot is cool an there is a lot of room for improvement.

1. sub has too much bump or is too large
2. the water shot needs more depth of field
3. the explosions need more image distortion like a shock wave like "hunt for red October"
4. get some reference to try to match it
5. bubbles are too large sub try not to have bubbles to no be seen by the enemy
6. need some casuistic reflections on the ground
7. the light rays are made from the reflection of the caustics not placed any where
8. don't need to distorted the whole image , but have the grass wave like its in water

well that's my 2 cents , hope that helps

Thank you for you comments, all those are good points and I will make perhaps all those what you said. This was first render and now I can start make and plan to second renderings.

I was in the dead end in first animation scene, so I build a scene new, little different. First art is ready ( Lightwave ) and now I render second, where torbedoes go past mines, at the end, camera hits on one mine, and last part will be showing an explosion from above sea surface.
Here you can see this new work in progress:

Now two parts ready, no postprocessing. Next I start to make hardest part, big explosion on the surface of the sea.

All 3 parts now ready ( Lightwave), now I can start to experiment with these clips with After Effects.
ps. there are now some sounds.

I added more details to that explosion scene, sea surface now moves when explosion starts ect..... Little light effects to second scene.

I started a new scene where submarine comes to New York city. First test animation made, where submarine comes to surface. Now I can add water aroun submarine with particles. Here you can see that test animation so far:

First animation layer ready, where are some finer water splash. Now I put this animation in .avi format to background and started to plan bigger water droplets with particles. I changed also submarines movement little, it was too fast.
