Not long left to go now & I'm starting to panic! It takes so much time to set up Scenes, Materials, Lighting then render it all I haven't even started on any explosions yet!

So here's another update of some rendered scenes.

Take it easy fella's.

Wow!! Even those stills are looking really great. I'm very excited to see this! It looks like it will be a lot of fun to watch

Cheers fella's it's really good to hear that!
I'm pretty sure I'll run out of time but I'm trying to get everything rendered then go back & do all the FX.

This is an animated Storyboard for myself to help with my entry. I used a few of my favorite artists see the list below.

Thanks Guys

This is looking great so far, and it's a great inspiration.
Don't give it up man! I know it's a huge job, but you're going so great, and I can't wait to see this finished.
Gotta check out your portfolio.

Keep it up!
Now it's the time to be extreme!

Not much of an update today I've been rendering a lot & calculating explosion for the final shots. With the extra 2 weeks hopefully I can get it all finished in time & use some left over time to re render some bits I'm not happy with & work more into the comping.

Thanks guys

Oh by the way, how do you render out your motion blur, I seem to be having trouble with mine :(

Thanks mate hopefully they're animate just as good too ;0)

Motion blur, depends, what programs are you using? Maya, Max? AfterFX, Fusion, Nuke? What are you blurring a plane propeller or a character?
  11 November 2009
Well I am rendering in passes, from Maya, I render out a normal map, but I cant find an option in after effects to use the normal map for bluring.

A normal pass won't work for Motion blur you need to use a vector pass it kinda looks the same.

I don't use Maya but check the link below for a tut. Usually in AfterFX people use a plugin called RealMotion Blur but I don't know how to do it without the plugin. I'm sure there is an option in AfterFX if I find it I'll give you a link but I think the tut below the guy uses AfterFX so it should have everything you need!

Thanks alot i will check it out. I am still a noob, so all of these techniques are new to me, I have an image in my head of how I want everything to be, but I am not always sure how to go about it. :(
