Here are the winners!

WIP THREAD:
FxWars! Water Balloon! : NunoNisa
SHORT DESCRIPTION:
Hi Guys finally done!

Took about 115 hours including everything (from scratch to final render including render time).

Tried to make a simulation where it could be seen both the incredible slow motion wobbling the balloons suffer on impact, how they blow on that straight line and the water behavior. So there’s the reason my balloon only pop’s at the second impact…

Modeled, lit and rendered in XSI. Simulated with syflex, water simulation RealFlow.

Hope you enjoy it!

[li][color=darkorange][font=Verdana]WIP THREAD:[/li]FxWars! Fireworks! : tome [/font][/color]
[li][color=darkorange][font=Verdana]SHORT DESCRIPTION:[/li]Here is my entry, I used Maya streak and point particles and After Effects for post. I figured this would be a good chance to get some more mel practice so I put together a script that reads a csv/text file where I specify the timing of when the shells shoot off as well as their burst colors and their height. That’s probably what I spent the majority of my time on, think I worked on this for about a month off and on between work and school.

I plan to add some smoke and the sound effects from Roberto (and any suggestions I get from you guys :slight_smile: ) before I call it done. Just don’t know if I’ll be able to get that stuff in before the deadline. I’ll update my wip with any changes I make after the contest. Also thanks to my bro for his non-cg feedback.
