FXWars! Avalanche!: ACantarel

Ok, I´ll try it also

I´ll post a WIP soon

Old 09 September 2004   #2
Ok, here´s my very first attempt! There´s no camera movement at the moment and also the volume shading of the avalanche itself is the first try. There´s still a lot to do
One day and a half of work now.

The particle System was thinking particles 2.0 so the simulation is complete rule based.
Volumetracer was Pyrocluster 3.0
Landscape was a displacement of a heightmap of somewhere.
Dreamscape 2.0 for the terrain material and the sky.
+3ds max 6
(all legal software)

Here it is:


7,9 MB

I really dig that mountain texture....very nice. Overall this gives a good sense of scale...nice job in capturing that. Although I've gotta say, 8MB for a clip of that size is rather large...I'd try compressing it more next time.

that landscape is excellent

bit more work on the particles and you will have a really strong entry

got to agree about the file size though

well done

Thanks you for the comments!

@Triple G: Yes you´re right, it´s a bit too large for that. That´s because I was ina big lack of time during compressing the avi.

@Lightfreeze: I found a small wrong connection in my particle setup. That´s why some of the trees are going trough the ground. also I need to increase the number of particles to get a smoother line of snow in the front of the avalanche.

I hope I have enough time to finish my entry

Just a small update. Still a lot to do.
This is a view over the whole scene. The "camcorder"-camera is already animated.
In the middle the avalanche is going down. It´ll go trough the forest an making down every tree on it´s way. The small building will get destroyed when it gets hit by the first "arms" of the avalanche.
I hope I can finish this

Small update again.

This looks amazing! The sense of scale is fantastic, can't wait to see another animation!

Watch the animation HERE
Around 5 MB. I didn´t got it smaller because of the thin lines which disappeared with lower data size.

Old 09 September 2004   #11
COOOL! But 5 MB???

5MB for this animation is enormous. Can't you compress this?
