Quote: Like the idea of the "Match to Live Action" project, BUT wouldn't the results be highly dependent on the render engine you own?


Not really. I use the standard maya software renderer. Not too much to brag about that render engine. Although you will need a render engine that can seperate your render into the basic passes such as diffuse, spec, and shadow. I think most render engines nowadays can do @ least that. Those are the only passes that I need.

A lot of the project is done in post. I would think the project would come down to your compositing package rather than your render engine. Heck, if you are doing a still, all you need is photoshop!

For the next fx challenge I'd love to try a realistic tornado, super cliché I know, but let's face it, it's a very hard thing to get right and therefor: a challenge...

For the next rigid bodies challenge I'd love to do something like for example a character that gets pushed off a set of stairs or something like that. Some object melting would be a good challenge, not really rigid body but hey, should be fun. It's not much of an fx challenge, but a elaborate system to lower a bridge, with levers and chains and stuff like that, all for it...

Shapeshiftig Monster would be interesting.

A person transforms into a werebeast, perhaps while being chased through woods or similar, adding the additional challange to create an effect that doesn't break in different poses.

I really like the more mechanically oriented contests. Such as the past rollercoaster challenge and the current Moonshot challenge. So maybe an challenge were you have to build an:
-working engine
-another rollercoaster challenge (because one is not enough)
-the rising of the titanic
-mission to mars
-space combat
-tank battle
-futuristic weapon test

More open ended challenges...

I'd like to see the challenges be more open ended as far a subject matter, just give us a word or phrase and let us get creative.
Some examples/suggestions:
The Ocean
Smoke
Growth

Now you see it...

How about a magician doing a trick? [you could really ham it up] Have a magician change someone into an alien or something for the hybrid.

"The Ultimate Punch"? Trying to animate a punch with the most visual "oomph" ... could do it for kicks too.

How about a failed carrier landing - how badly failed depends on you...

This could be from any era since the inception of carrier born aircraft.

A tank crashing through a wall

Gigantic hail like in The Day After Tomorrow

A bullet ripping through some office furniture

Energising figures appearing or disappearing

The leaning tower of Pizza falling over

A ship striking a large bridge

I'll stop now
