Now that sounds GRAND! Great Idea, I hope it will be realized. I don’t have experience in such maters, but I’m totally in:)

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I plan on making it DVD because I want it to have complete behind the making of GSO (*DVD menu based bios of each contestant who wishes to be included with their W.I.P.'s images) I am fully experienced to do this I have worked with Icon Entertainment, been associated with FMPTA as well as being the lead designer on their magazine Viewfinder. I have international distribution of my music and video work on LMTV in South America and parts of North America where the channel is carried. I worked on VIP Latino as the creator of the music and all special effects. I have had my music in part used for some feature films etc…

The Official Thread of the GSO Music Video

Arturro I posted a reply to you about this on the above linked page as I will for all of them.

||) |V| |^|: Sounds like a cool idea you have there. As for my “emptiness”, I already have a few ideas for new projects (one being a series of 3D illustrations). Since LW finally addressed the issue of subpatch UV Maps (plus the fact that you can edit the shape of the map without affecting the geometry), I really want to start working with texture maps (in this Challenge, I stayed with using procedural maps).

I am totally agree with Ago-stino. I think that is ok to have only 15 winners, but those should be choosen from 30 shortlisted given by the votes. So the jury could check 30 images, is better than only 15. Besides, I have check all the images, and they are really good, there is enough talent to fill a larger list. Don’t you think?.

A last thing, it will be really cool if we could know how many votes we have. Only for make it more exciting.

what’s the matter with my final image http://cgnetworks.com/challenge/grandspaceopera/entry.php?challenger=5088

please…


#688

glim: Looks like the file was corrupted (either when the Tiff uploaded or when the Tiff was converted into Jpeg). Pm Mibus and see what’s up.


#689

sorry I am a total newb here how many votes do we get to cast? As many images as we like or what?


#690

You can only vote for a given image once, but you can vote for as many different images as you want.


#691

Admin…

Is their any way you guys can pump up the res on the widescreen images so they match a bit better the size of the portrait / lanscapes in the voting pages ???..they look real small in comparison …just a quick question I’m sure you are limited by the page borders…I did a side by side and there is quite a difference… :shrug:

thanks guys for your time…

thx cgkrustry


#693

heh, you’re right essencedesign, I had a look through the final entries and like you my entry’s thumbnail does seem pretty titchy compared to the portrait images. Ah well, if that’s the way the page is set up then it looks like that’ll be partly dictating my image proportions next time…

Just had a thought while reading Leonard’s last post on the judging timeline:

Dates:
21 - 27 Jan - Public voting
28 Jan - 3 Feb - Internal jury voting
28 Jan - 3 Feb - Public community award voting
14 Feb - Winners announced and notified

Does this mean that after all the votes are counted and the shortlisted winners are decided, the Jury will automatically go into judging without announcing who the shortlisted winners are?
Or would they announce the shortlisted winners, then move into the Jury voting?
(just curious, cause the former would indicate that we wouldn’t know who was on the list till February 14th… :shrug: )


#696

I doubt you’ll see any results at all before the final date, IIRC it wasn’t released last time.

Same goes for individual vote scores, they won’t likely be released at all (they haven’t been released in the past).

Mibus,

I entered my Final image (TIFF) via FTP zipped and a Jpeg below 150kbs on my thread before the close date but looking at the voting board… no me

As I’ve said before, I wasn’t in it to win it this time so I’m not standing on a high ledge about it, but I would like to know what went wrong so next time I’m ‘in’.

Thanks!

It looks like you uploaded your file with a different name to what was expected. I went through the images that I could see that were obviously named with the artist’s name or the work’s name, but M477 didn’t occur to me as being either!

In step 3 of the final image page, when you’re given the FTP details the item under the password is for the filename - in your case, “65260_74318.zip”. Without that, the system can’t match you to your entry, so you were never considered to have uploaded the TIFF.

Don’t forget you can still submit your work for the gallery here (and potentially get a CGChoice award instead ;)) or for EXPOSE’3, so you can still have something to look forward to :slight_smile:


#699

Ahhhh… “kerplunk” as the penny drops! Thanks Mibus, I uploaded a zipped folder titled <GSO M477> and the filename was not right inside so that must have been the problem! :banghead:

Ok, well I know for next time. Thanks again! :thumbsup:
