View Full Version : FXWARS! Tesla -6dollarman- FREEFORM

03 March 2009, 03:49 AM
I'm, in for another one.
Tesla FX will surely bring out some interesting results.
I've been playing with lightning a bit in Maya. I bought Houdini at Christmas but haven't developed the skills yet. I tried a bit with L-systems.

Hey 6dollarman nice to see your entry. If i am not mistaken you are 3DBuzz member, right?

Anyway i am going to keep my eye on your entry.
I am going to participate in this contest too. I just have not found the time to start my contest thread.

I love the lightning effect you got there. It looks quite spectacular, how did you achieve it?

Good to see you Gotmilk, I recognized you as well.
I have used paint effects with hours of tweeking. I still have
little control over the bolts yet. I hope to see your thread soon.

I've done a little more on the lightning, but have spent most of my time on the setting.
No textures yet.
This is a link to a short lightning animation

Nice. An intense and violent powerful lightning. When can we expect to see some animatics :) ?

I'm still in. Right after the the challenge started I was recalled back to work.
So Gotmilk I have no time for an animatic. Instead I have a few sketches from work that got me started. I have been using every free minute on this.

Looks good. Good luck on hitting the deadline.

It looks like I am out. I lost my rig over the weekend. The powersupply is shot.
I live in rural Ontario and have to drive to Toronto to pick it. Maybe this weekend.
I will still put up what I have done when I am back up and running.
Good luck everyone

:sad: This is very bad news my friend. Any chance to get your data out of the computer and post a wip and still participate in contest?

03 March 2009, 09:32 PM
oh wow, that is bad timing.... sorry about that, would have been great to see you entry into the light of day.... Hope you can manage something!

03 March 2009, 04:28 AM
Thanks guys, No chance of getting anything else posted.
The power supply is under warranty so I have to wait on it and my rig is in the shop.
I'll continue to see how the rest of you are doing. There are going to be a lot of really great entries.

Still waiting for Youtube to upload. I hope it is done before I go to work.
I submitted my entry. I got my rig back yesterday, but had to go to work. A long night last night.
My entry.
