Strange Behavior (Animation) Entry: michel prins


did my first animation test with robot and its looking fine.


had problems with getting the uv map out with only the selected faces, must be an error in the script or incompatebillity with the 2.44 blender version, I worked around it by taking a screen capture and use that instead. Oh well.I think the fresh colors of the gym turned out fine.


had the comp render for 5 hour but ican see now how the end product is going to be, great.


here another test anim.


next one will be the one to upload as entry. computer stopped just rendering the last frame now I only have to edit them togeteher and add some sound.


uploaded the flv animation and the big jpg via the cg uploader.


no tiff upload possible via ftp!!! In the rules it said I also had to upload an tiff in above 300 dpi format , but the website wont let me, when I enter animation as challenge it says no need for tiff upload and when i choose illustration it says youre not taking part. I assume you changed the rules midway, nice to keep us posted. If not I expect a staffmember to inform me personaly that a tiff file is still required and the not being able to a slipup of the webdevellopper. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

goodluck to the other entrants.

Ps. I worked all weekend to get the bloody thing finished and today i get an email the deadline is postponed 2 weeks. Talking about strage behaviour :wink:

I made my entry mainly with opensource software,only the last hours i used magix music maker to quickly merge the video and sound together as I didnt had time to find out the quirky way it worked in blender.


Fantastic! Texturing is very good and i am waiting for this robot to move. I like that golden silver one most!
Good luck with uploads.

You could throw some sampleloop in Kraftwerk style :wink:


I think tiff is just necessary for illustration category, they also have to make it at high resolution, because they want to print it somewhere.

but where’s your flv, I can’t see it, am I blind?

the render is nice.


Hmm , guess a tiff isnt nessesary for animation entrys, the flv was uploaded through the special uploader where it went I dont know, are the animations of other participants visible?


I tried for 2 days to submit the final rendered movie but the uploader is faulty. So i uploaded to youtube. Email me the ftp settings so I can upload the flv directly to cgnet for judgement. Using a beta uploader for a contest isnt that profesional. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

<object width=“425” height=“350”> <param name=“movie” value=“”> </param> <embed src=“” type=“application/x-shockwave-flash” width=“425” height=“350”> </embed> </object>


for the people who like to see the end result, mind the quality is low due to flv compression.
