They are, but they end up being pretty subtle with the flat default light, high compression and low resolution... I made another one first which showed them off better, but the file ended up being 15 megs, so I couldn't be bothered posting that

Nice movie you got there.

Just a though from looking at the crate. Maybe it could use a contrast color, like some red or blue striping to break up the greyishness.

Cool - thanks a lot!

Ps: Didnīt get a time-out on the site.

Hey James!

Nice work BTW

I was wondering what you used to make that quicktime VR thingy? I'd like to make one for mine when I get to that stage...

Supervlieg - Yeah, good point. It looks a little colourless right now... but I've already called it, so I'm not touching it again

Pit - Goody!

Dargon - Well, the QT VR is really easy in my case, since Cinema 4D supports that output format natively... I just set a few params and hit render. Have honestly no idea how to do it elsewhere, but since the format as such is basically just a movie anyway with a few extra bits set in the QT header (just guessing here) I wouldn't be surprised if there are plugins for whatever app you're using that can handle it.
