This is a contest piece for the AnimWatch AnimClips Animation Challenge #1 contest. Meant to replace the Ten-Second Club where your given a peice of audio, and a timeline, and the guide to NOT alter the audio clip in any shape or form.

I did not model the characters, they are models and rigs my school provided me.

All animation was dont by me though.

Few things:
- Yes i know his eyes are that colour. I did actually re-render this with motion-blur and corrected the colours of some things (most notibly the eye colour) unfortunately the renderer got confused or something and rendered out half of the animation and then the same first half in different file na,es/ It was pretty hilarious, but took well over 98 hours or rendering time with a render farm in ordeer to apply motion blur on Gyro, ugh....
-Erics arms at the end are a tad weak in the animation dept, i know, i was burnt out and just needed to finish it, deadline was approaching

...umm...thats about it.

Software used: Softimage|XSI Advanced 6.0
Rendering: Softimage|XSI Mental Ray
Encoded with: Quicktime Sorenses 3 w/ uLaw2:1 Audio compression

hmm.. not sure what else to spill about this, other than hey, its at leasta good start on a portolio (which i sorely need to add content too).

Next up: Ill be revamping "Transparent" ( m/portal/view/167052) with better character models and hopefully better animation production values than this one.
I can hardly wait :)

Although there was absolutely no story to this( i didnt really get the point of what he said), the animation was excelently done and looked amazing.

Don't listen to tripe

Well done matey,

I hope to see more fo your stuff in the future, maybe with your own rigs and characters. I have no problem with seeing good work anywhere, so don't let people get at you.... if NG had a Video Portal then i suppose they might have a point, but it doesn't... so there hehe

Really good fun peice of work, i know how much work goes into stuff like this, my own 3 project took just over a day on my old machine... damned cell shading.....

Keep it

RedactedProfile responds:

Ah toon/cel shading, haha everyones definitely got to use it at some point :) Seems to be the most popular type of rendering at my school.

Thanks for the kind words, i appreciate it :)

sorry dude but this is for flash 0/5

RedactedProfile responds:

your point being? I see a ton of 3D pre-rendered crap within flash movies and applications, why is THIS any different? Its encoded in flash, this should be enough to satisfy needs. Its even got the NG tank logo. Thats animated. Thats flash. etc etc etc.

Anyways, your review is without merrit so im going to ignore.
