Greetings, recent visitors… Nice to see lots of familiar faces from days gone by
Anyways, bumped into some domestic issues, so it looks like it will be a few days before I can continue working on this - no problems though.
(Q and) A:
@ Jonesisme - Well, a 3D scene, but since we’re required to submit a short animation of it as well, it’s definitely a good idea to keep that in mind from day one. It’s not something that one should hack together later in an afterthought kind of way - that’s asking for trouble. So I’m planning everything as if it was intended for full animation. Personally I think this is by far the best addition to the general CGChallenge rules they’ve come up with this time around. The very purpose of the 3D medium is animation IMHO, and it used to be a pain trying to settle for that one single angle for a still image in previous challenges - but now we finally have the opportunity to show off various shots and really demonstrate the full scope of the stuff we build. It’s just great.
Updates postponed until something like the middle of next week.
