Thankyou Bentllama for replying but that doesn't really answer my problem.
At first I thought the name thing was supposed to be the name of your come-back character from the animation but now that I obviously realise I should have put MVP I am asking how I can get this changed without restarting a whole new thread??

Help!


i will change this for you.

thanks


oops...here's my link to the thread


looks fine to me. just do not bite off more than you can chew...often the simplest ideas are the easiest ones to refine and make shine...

I know no dialogue is allowed, but what about grunts, screams and those kinds of noises.

In the last post in my thread i outlined the scene and the heroine has to throw off the badguy. It would work better if she could scream or vocalize her effort with a grunt or something.

If not can I use a dramatic beat at the same point.

Hawe questions about technical stuff :

Is there any polygon count limit ?
Can I use depth of field ?
Can I use motion blur ?
Can it be no textures but GI like light ?
Can I help with rotoscoping (if not haw U find out)
Can I use dynamic ?
What about enviroment in this case ?

I'm asking this because level of games is very high and do the quality of picture will involve the final voting .?

thx

I read the rules, and do have a question.

1) Concept has to be entirely original. Absolutely NO "expansions" or "sequels" to existing "showdowns", and NO "showdowns" based on films/existing games/existing television programs

I asume comic characters are also out?
BUT, useing the character and its history to make my own new "showdown?"

I am useing the character "Death's Head II" as the main character, but makeing up my own fight, character being fought, stage, but kinda following what the character might have done if they made a prequill if that makes sense?

short summary of the character, if ya dont know, the character "death's head" was designed to assimilate people, creatures, in order to stop a "future threat." Something goes wrong and he becomes the old deaths head and goes off on whatever adventures through the series.

I am not going to use any of the"assimilations" from the series, but make up one with my own bad guy and envoirnment. Is that ok?

Cool. Yeah i totaly see me going overboard on this. But nothing is worth doing unless your under extreme preasure. Not saying this is but well. If i am not pulling my hair out, then it does not feel like i am doing anything.

use the beat. no dialogue , means no dialogue.

in the future, there will be challenges that may be completely open ended, and everything will be allowed. if you notice, each challenge has been testing out different sets of rules. so the next challenge may be completely different.

all are acceptable. remeber, this challenge is all about the animation itself. all the little extras and such will just take away from your time in refining the motion to perfection.

Hello, my unfortunate request is that you tell me how I can unsubscribe myself from the CGChallenge site SHOWDOWN contest as I will not be able to finish my anim in time.
