Hi.

1. No. Not sure how you will distribute the prizes though
2. Yep. Pros, amateurs, everybody is welcome!

I just have a few questions:

1. I want to join this challenge as an individual. If midway through the challenge I realize that I won't be able to finish working on my own, am I allowed to switch to a team entry?
2. Am I allowed to work with freelancers that will join the challenge only for a few days? (maybe model just a few props or animate some background characters). They will of course be credited, but do they count as "team members" if their contribution is not substantial?
3. Is there a limit to how many people can join as a team?
4. Can "established animation studios" enter this challenge as a team? or is it more about "discovering new talent"?


Hi,

1. Yes you may.
2. Yes, however they would have to be credited and classed as team members.
3. No. If they win, they’ll get the same amount of prizes as a small team.
4. Yes. Everybody is welcome. It would be really cool to create more in-depth WIPs, so the community can benefit from your techniques, pipelines etc. A big goal of these challenges is for folk to learn from others.

Hi Daniel,

Currently the only way to do it is by signing in with a new cgtalk account :(

The rules say we can sign up for both the image and video categories. To do both, we have to create a second CGTalk account??

Thank you MikeHepburn,

As AdamTSC is pointing out, the rules clearly says " Individuals may enter both Image and Video categories. " ?

It`s not a problem for me to sign up for a new account, but I find this kind of strange.

Daniel

Yeah, unfortunately. It's annoying. We are working on the issue, but for now it's the work around.

Cheers, Mike

Ok I see
Then there`s a new question, it might already been answered.
If you have joined the challenge as individual video, but decide to have a team instead. Do you then just call it a team video or do you need to create an account for this as well?

Would you say it's worth waiting for now on creating that second account if a fix is in the works? Should we post our updates in a thread for now only and then once it's fixed upload them 'officially'?

By the end of the challenge you only need to have uploaded the required deliverables to the Challenge Engine. So, the bulk of concepts/WIPs and discussion/critiques can happen in the forums. But I'd say create the second account, just in case something unforeseen happens, and we have to keep this work around.

Remember to leave plenty of time to upload to the Challenge Engine!

Hi Daniel,

I hate being the bearer of annoying news... but that will require a third account. Sorry :(

Hi CG-Talk,

I just wanted to say that I will join - for a 3D still image. I don't have much experience with texturing and lighting but will do my best. I am curious if I can make it within the deadline! Even so I don't think I would win anything I will get much experience out of this!

Let's work and learn from each other!
