Challenge issues resolved here


#1

go for it


#2

I think I missed it but Did you post results for the whoops competition?

This challenge requires completely new characters, but do I need to have an original set? Or am I trying to make everything original?

Thanks,
Jay


#3

#5

Can you clarify please - is it only the animation that has to be completely new, or do the models have to be as well?

I.e., since this isn’t a modelling challenge, could I re-use existing character models?

Cheers - Steve

yes


#7

wasn’t divx for mac released some weeks ago? so why not using divx for the final too?


#8

Is the use of poser models allowed in the animation challenge? Not default out of the box models with no tweaks of course, but ones with custom morphs and textures?


#9

Ok, pre-built models are ok…are pre-built rigs ok too? (i.e. character studio?)

Thanks,
Chris


#10

I would like to know if the animation has to be entirely computer generated?
Can traditional hand-drawn animation be used for this Challenge?
Thanks,

ok, i can now post! strange! cheers lil dragon. If i decide to participate, this will be my first challenge, so i have some questions! :smiley:

  1. can this challenge be cartoony, ie funny and a bit slapstick?? i have looked at everybody elses so far, and they seem very dramatic!

  2. is the 15-20 second time limit very strict?? howz about if i am 2 seconds over? :stuck_out_tongue:

  3. can i start this challenge if i am pretty sure i wont finish it to it’s full petential by the deadline?? I am a newb, so i have no existing models or anything (unless i can fill 20 seconds with fighting spheres?!?!?!)

Thanks for the help,

It is an Animation my friend… if you had look at the guidelines you’ll see all the details… :slight_smile:

do it the way you want Sci-fi, cartoony, drama…
15-20 seconds Means 15-20 seconds… not 22 seconds
and its an Animation contest… not a modelling contest… so i you think you may not have the time to model your caracters… use sphere like you told…

A good animator is able to give expression, body language and everything wich is involve to anything… going from sphere to complicated models :slight_smile:

1.] yes.

2.] 15-20 sec. firm! it aint fair to everyone else if we allow one person to go over is it? keep within the confines for your submission, then add more for personal folio use later.

3.] stickmen are fine. it is the motion that is the heart of this challenge. the storytelling within the fight scene.

it should always be your name…it is right there in the contest rules about how to name your thread

Hey Bentllama, I’m planing to team up with a mate for this months challenge, so just to make sure before I start the thread that there are no issues with that.

Cheers
