Oh man!
I just finished an animation based on this very concept. We did it for the Dallas Mavericks, as an in-game piece to pump up the crowd. As someone who has been down this road, I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Check it out... maybe it will give you guys some ideas

That turned out really nice. How long did it take you to complete and what software did you use.

You should really enter this challenge!

I'm happy to donate my updated tank model if anyone's interested in having a go at the insanely difficult task of making the treads morph into existence at one end and disappear at the other whilst somehow synching with the movement (I tried this, followed the standard recipe for "follow path", but I'm not really a generalist... the treads got minced part way through testing and the debris killed the pilot ).

It's in my folio, pm me if you're up for it.

cheers

Uhh I noticed a small typo in the challenge specific rules (I think this was for the Nuke contest):
"You may provide a heavily edited animation with all the trimmings (hell add live action if you want), as long a you provide another PLAIN animation of a side view of a Nuke going off."

Unless it was a Tron inspired nuke...? Uber DEREZ??!
 
Old 04 April 2010   #14
interesting, btw, where can i get motorcycle sounds (original, not TRON)
