Work In Progress: textures shaders wip



first test for the turban. As we will probably not see it too near I've just extracted a normal map out of the Zbrush model in order to render faster.

Work In Progress: textures shaders wip



As this character is the wife of the Chief, the previous style was a bit too much ''naked'' so I gave a try for a kind of integrated dress. However the Dancer will be more ''naked''. By the way, for now the eyes are in a toony style but we will probably change them for something a tiny little bit more serious in order to make the integration a bit more belivable in the real footages.

first test for the small dancing character. It will have many of them dancing all around with maybe different kind of glowy colors.

Work In Progress: test timeLaps



Software: Maya,mental ray,Photoshop, Fusion

here a first test to see how to upload videos.

Some members of the team have been shooting (and are still at the moment) the time-laps we will use for the movie. These are not videos but photos took at some interval of time. Then we comp them back and mixed some part with the others ( I will stop the explanation there cause I don't know exactly what have been done by our comp artist :) . I don't write all the names cause I don't know exactly who where one the shooting but we will make a detailed credits at the end of the project. If you have any questions about some points I can pass the message to the other members of the team (most of them are checking the topic anyway).

Here I've bee trying which method I would use to render the characters on these time-laps cause the lights are always changing. I tried to use the video itself to generate the lighting of the scene. a bit like a hdri lighting but not with a spherical environment. I put some planes for the sea for the sky and others elements and then I project the video on them from the camera so they have an animated texture on them which is matching more or less what they should be seen from this angle. Then I hide their primary visibility but use them as final gather generators. I multiply the color Gain from the video to make them more or less vivid. The lightning is not accurate cause if a boat pass in the foreground then it affect the character which is in the background but it make a nice soft effect and give a bit more interest to the geometry of the character by making the light move on him.

We are all very busy in the studio those days because of a lot of projects going on but we will try our best to finish at least a trailer in time. A first offline should come during the next week and from there will start the final animation and renders!

This monster is the bigest one. He comes after the party to clean a bit the city.

Merci beaucoup! We are all very busy those days in Anima cause there is a lot of jobs going on letting
us a very little time to work on this project. We are trying our best to post a trailer before monday.
All the characters will not be present in the trailer cause we don't have enough time to animate all
of them. But until the end of the month we will try to finish the full movie. It will probably be a 37s trailer and at the end of the month a 2 minutes short film.

Thanks a lot for the compliments.
The project should be ready in time. We are very busy on other projects but we should be able to deliver the final video in time. We don't have time for any making off for now but maybe later. Is it a must for the competition?
