CgTalk:FXWars! Four Seasons

Render an animation of a the passing of the seasons. It can be as simple or a complicated as you wish, but it must be a done as single continous shot.

(You have ONE MONTH And a Half to do the challenge.)

You may do one of these types of entries:

Freeform Entry

  • You may use the provided models (and models you submit) to create an entry. The core requirement for this type of entry is to have fun.
But keep in mind the key thing that I expect to see in all entries is a Visual Effect Sequence, in one shot, of the four weather seasons of the year.


  • No work taken DIRECTLY from an existing tutorial. You may use an existing tutorial only for reference.
  • You may use a pre existing model(or use any of the models provived) , as long as you give credit to the creator. If you cant model, use simple shapes, since we are interested in the simulation. (But teams are encouraged, and if you are a modeler, you can make your model available)
  • 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 the working SIMULATION of the object .

    designed by me.
