Hi folks...

here is my second animated (very) short movie "iBOT Surprise"

(i miss a 'animation' Thread in this forum)

Take a look and let me know what you think:

HD Version - 1280x720 (11,8MB) klick here (http://www.east-power-soft.de/temp/surprise_1280x720.avi)

PC Version - 640x360 (6,0MB) klick here (http://www.east-power-soft.de/temp/surprise_640x360.avi)

Behind the scenes:
I need 6-7 weeks to create it from the idea until the final. Including time for tests, preproduction, modeling, storyboard etc. Time for rendering not included. For the HD Resolution i need ca. 1,5min. per Frame and the output is 30 FPS. That means...the PC runs all night long ;)

As you can read, i used TS6.6 togehter with MotionStudio, PrimalParticlesFX, Simbiont Shaders and a view other PlugIns.

The SFX is also done by me, because it was to difficult to find the correct effects. The famous background music is from the net - there i had luck.

so, enjoy and ask if you have questions.

Its great! I love it,

Do you have a you tube page?

Contact me if you would like me to upload it to truespacefree on youtube.

The only critique is why not use the breakable egg thats in trueSpace?

:banana:

why....TrueSpace 6.6 !!!

ok, this answer was stupid...well, first reason: i would do it in this way. Second reason: the breakable egg was unknown for me.

That was cool! Raised a few genuine chuckles from me :) I do like the sparks etc as the egg gets cut in half, that was a favorite part of mine (in technical terms of rendering etc).


Any plans to do any more animations in future? Any plans for iBot?


Thanks for sharing!


Tom

Thanks TomG.

Yes, i have a view Storyboards here and i will create more animations ;)

iBOT was more a test to figure out a view things like a good animatable rig and also for getting more feeling how i seperate scenes and stuff like that.

For iBOT is no other animation in my head, but who knows...

The thing is that animation, specialy good animation, needs time ... a lot of time ... and i still learning the pipeline. So stay prepared.

Wow! Great work DesignDevil. And on so many levels too. Its a great model, nice textures and lighting, a beautiful, smooth render and the animation itself is quite superb. You should submit it to the Caligari monthly animation contest; looks like a winner to me.

Very nice work! Please keep doing more of these!


Actually got a Kinder Surprise Egg when I was little, so this brought back memories. :-)

hi DesignDevil, a great piece of work!


I have a -probably naive- question, because I am not doing much animation, but like to get into it. How do you make the legs grow taller, did you have the cylinders elongate? And what about the arms? Morphing? I would love to see the animated wire frame. I feel like asking the magician where that bunny came from.

Hope you want to share some of your 'tricks'.
