The camera tilts down revealing a huge refinery in a heavy snowstorm. The view moves downward to focus on an industrial vehicle as it carries a group of soldiers up a ramp and out onto an expansive airfield. In the distance, gigantic ore carriers taxi through the blizzard, preparing for takeoff. military.
I've done a lot of animations of various scenes, but this is probably one of the most elaborate. The scene had to be split into several pieces when rendering it, just to fit into memory. As a result, each segment was rendered on its own and seamlessly blended together to make the final shot without apparent camera cuts.
In addition, there were separate passes for the snow and atmospheric elements, which were composited into the base render to produce the final look. The snow was a mix of techniques, using both particles and 2D textures animated across large pieces of simple geometry.
The 3D was created using Lightwave 3D, with textures painted in Photoshop. Compositing was done using Adobe After Effects.
Awesome video man - truly epic. The music played nicely from that wide shot of those escape ships. I think the only thing missing was the environment sound fx - like snow blizzard - the vehicles and alarm sirens would've been great too
I'm in the process of doing a 2d comic style animation i've been planning it for years -[link] The storyboard is complete but painting each scene will take me weeks or months to complete. I may need some tips of you to carry out certain scenes - your video skill knowledge will be vital for my project.
That clip definitely needs sound FX! I don't have any time to add any in right now - but when I do I'll upload the revised version I think with books and sequential art (like a graphic novel) the main challenge is to come up with a style that suits the story but is quick enough to streamline the amount of work involved. It's a lot of work no matter how you break it down
You done an amazing job bro regardless of the soundfx the music of the video really drew me in - the camera work, the animation and specialfx were all excellent When you get the time, which I hope you do - check this [link] here you can find some cool royalty free soundfx. (registration is free).
I look forward to seeing the revised version - keep me posted man.
I find adding the soundfx the fun part in making a film. Its just like painting the world to life. Theres always that learning curb but once you get the know how - adding soundfx shouldn't take too long to finish Took the time to view your other videos pretty awesome man.
I love adding the sound effects. Just need time, and to find some good sounds! There is a lot of good stuff on that link - thanks once again. Now I will try and include sound.
Of course, the other problem is music! I don't suppose you have any leads on that front? I can't see getting much further - getting serious - about video as long as I "pirate" soundtrack music - but it's such an important element. (In fact, the music in some cases inspires me to create the visual).
Yeah, there's always that big risk of using copyrighted material for personal projects - I often mention in my descriptions that my work is not for commercial use and I always add reference where I got the music from (must give credit).
As for the music I believe I found the perfect background music for your film its from the GEARS OF WAR 2 soundtrack: titled: Dom and Maria Composer: Steve Jablonsky [link]
My second recommendation is Two steps from hell : Dawn of war [link] That's if you want a military might feel in the scene.
If you are still concerned about using (C)Music then check out this [link] Im not 100& sure if its royalty free but have a look bro
I can never do art without listening to music its the fuel of my creativity ^^
Again That Gears of war 2: Dom and Maria is my number 1 choice ^^
