View Full Version : Season changes?

01 January 2011, 01:47 AM
I'm looking into Vue to create a 3D season change. Summer-Winter and etc. Has to be realistic. Melting snow, falling leaves, growing grass and etc.
Is it something that is doable in Vue?

I would have thought most of this would be possible in Vue, except the melting snow which would be difficult. However, most of the effects would be best added in post after rendering the main scene background / environment elements. This is mainly due to the huge rendertimes something like this would require, unless you have a decent renderfarm worked into your budget that is!

Personally, I would create and render all the main elements in Vue and add all effects in After Effects during post. You will have far more options for the animated effects (leaves, snow etc) in After Effects than you would in Vue and it will be far quicker too. Hope that helps.

Melting snow can be done with Mixed materials.
