View Full Version : mock car ad

05-10-2002, 08:54 PM
I have finally finished my mock car advertisment.

* Blender v2.22 - CG stuff
* Premier 6.0 - video editing/titles

* Only 3 image textures were used, the leaves on the trees, the bump-map for the reflector, and the licence plate.

Videos: * DivX 5
low-quality version (626KB):

High quality version (9706KB):

Let me know what you think of it.

I tried to get the low q version but the only thing I got was a song (??), no images.
Maybe the link doesn´t work correctly.
Could you send an image from the movie?

I tried the hq version - same problem.
you might want to fix that.
did you render out only audio in premier?

the codec is DivX 5. You may need to download the new codec.

I check the integrity of my videos before I upload them, I would not put up just an audio stream.

Works for me. I like it--nice transitions. The lighting is a bit weak, however. For example, the sunny day seems like an overcast autumn day--perhaps make the light intensity far stronger, so luminosity actually bleeds (perhaps have some areas of the scene actually use a glow or a bloom filter to mimic the sun's intensity).

Neat stuff; I'd like to see more =]

hi, works for me as well, but i must say that i think the transitions would be better if you used a crosfade as apposed to a straight up switch between backgrounds. the dust behind the car at the start also looks a bit strange, other than that, nice work:)

mikesnail: the abrupt background switch was some bad planning. There is about a 10-frame additive dissolve in-between backgrounds. I couldn't do any more because the camera path's didn't match up quite the way I wanted them to. The goal was to have the car stay in about the same spot while the background changed. Unfortuantly, that dust is the best that Blender can provide :shrug:

Marc McChesney: the last scene is actually for a sunset, which is why it has the orangeish tint and hase. The caption was originally "nice" days, but that sounded wrong.
