      Jalnor is currently leading a 3D animation project entitled "Stargate New Flight" over in this group, if anyone's interested. He needs all manner of 3D things done, including space ships, explosions and high-poly characters - not to mention a plethora of non-3D things like texturers and voice actors. Due to previous difficulties in getting help, he's offering to pay commission out of his own pocket.

      Some of you may be wondering about the fate of our Space Race animation project, and let me assure you, it's still on. The people working on it, however, are busy outside of his project, and are unable to work on it at this time. So it has been put on Hold for the time being.

      Of course, if you are not busy, and still want to be a part of this project, you are more than welcome to join in.

      The rest of us will be able to put our full time and effort back into this soon.

      Hopefully.

    • First step: Planing

      9 years ago

      3D

      Hay guys, sorry i was gone for so long, things keep popping up and keeping me away from my computer.

      Anyways, i guess were going with the space race idea, so lets get this puppy planed out so we can get to work.

      So first off, we need a place for this to happen. It could be a race through/around a space station and/or asteroid field and/or wast/battle field and/or obstacle course and/or anything else you guys can think of.

      At the same time we need to plan out what the ships will be like, but most important, the size. The size (and style) of the ships will tell us what what kind of race we can do. Small ships the size of go karts can have a lot maneuverability, so the race would most likely be wacky with a lot of crazy stunts and crashes. Ships the size of F1 cars to something the size of an X Wing would still have a lot of maneuverability, but it would be fast paced and more serious, meaning no wacky stunts, but there can still be some fighting and crashes. And lastly, ships the size of Longswords and bigger would focus on extreme speeds, have little maneuverability and no fighting, but there can still be some spectacular accidental crashes.

      As we plan all that out, i'm pretty sure we'll find out how many racers there will be, so all that's really left is picking out what kinda pilots we want to use, men, women, robots, space bears, zombies or transsexual-robot-space-bear-zombies.....on acid..........smoking cigars and tanking on there cell while racing. smiley8.gif

      That's about it so lets get crackin!

      Pretty obvious what you need to here, just vote for what you want and we'll discuss the winning project in the next news post.

      Answer A There's a lot we can do with this one.....(epic or funny) space race, space battle, planet attack etc.

      Answer B

      everyone and everything is doing something different like you will see a commander calling on the radio from a little bunker yelling of his or her lungs toward the person on the other line and you can see troops jumping into ditches as you see bombs are raining down from the sky, bullets flying everywhere bodies from both sides lying about the torn battle field... i don't know ill, think this as a epic split second shot from a camera.

      Keep in mind that this would most likely involve a lot of animating, and since i believe ill be the only person doing character animation, this could take a long time to complete.

      Answer C I'm sure everyone knows what the D-Day landing is, if not just google it. We can recreate the 1944 D-Day or we could make our own version taking place at any time in the past or future. Keep in mind this would also involve a lot of animating and there's no telling how long it would take to complete.

      Answer D There was a lot of talk about this one in the comments of the last news post so check it out if you haven't already. In this one we'll all be animating our own character along to a conversion/argument. I think this project would be the best for the group. We can use any software to animate any character (doesn't matter if it's good or not) and we render it out ourselves. This way everyone can do things there own way, upload it and i can edit all the videos together. The finished video would be kinda like a surprise since no one will know what the others are doing. Keep in mind that each person will have to record there own voice (feel free to edit your voice if you want).

      Answer E

      recreate the Halo 3 cutscene with the frigates attacking the Covenant ships, but in more detail.

      That pretty much says it all, we recreate that scene.

      Well, that's it.....Guess ill leave this up for a week to give everyone time to vote and to give other members a chance to join in.

    • Brainstorm!

      Okay, it's been a week since the last news post and now it's time to start planing what we want to do.

      Based off the skills that everyone has, i think the best project for the group would be to build a kickass scene. We can come up with a theme and after we have a concept of what we want, everybody will be given objects to model, once that's done, whoever knows how to texture can start texturing the models and after that's done, we can put it all together, light it up and render it out.

      So right now we need a theme, it can range from anything like a Living Room all the way to a Big Ass Space Scene or even a favorite game or anime/cartoon, so list any ideas you have here and we can vote for what we want to do in the next news post.

    • Lets see what we got!

      Okay guys, this group has kinda died over the past 2 months and as a result all the hot chicks have left (this makes me very sad smiley2.gif ).

      So to get this group back on it's feet, pumping out works of art and maybe attracting new members (and hot chicks), i propose that we start a group project. But before i start listing ideas, i want to know what we have to work with and if anyone is even interested in doing this.

      So for anyone interested in working on a group project, please list the skills you have and the software you use. Keep in mind that you don't have to be a pro to work on this group project (i don't believe anyone here is), so even if your skills are limited, don't be afraid to jump in, we'll find something for you to work on.

      And to give you an idea of what I'm looking for, this project will need anybody that has skills in modeling, animating, texturing, lighting, rendering, particle effects and even things like video composting, but if you have any other skills that you think would be useful, feel free to list them.


      Anyways, ill go first.....

      Skills: Modeling, Animating and video composting
      Software: Maya, Photoshop and After Effects

    • Advertisements?

      10 years ago

      3D

      I'm sure you've all heard about the addition of Sponsor Ads to the web site. I want to know if you think we should put up an Ad for this group.

      In my opinion, an advertisement should only be used to spread the word about a project, or anything like that. If we, as a group, are not working on any projects, it would be pointless to direct people to our group page, because this isn't a group that just anyone can join. This is a group for people that wish to expand their skills and share their creations in ONE specific field.

      Of course, there is an upside to it. If we promote the group, we can direct more people our way, and display our work proudly, and gain more popularity, and maybe help promote this fine artistic medium. Also, hot chicks will totally be all up ons.

      Naturally, I want to hear any opinions or suggestions you might have. I will also be discussing this with the other Admins.

      Thanks

      It appears that at least some of the functionality of group watching has been added to this site, so it is recommended that you all watch this group and it's forum topics (or those that interest you).

      Dvan and I are testing out the full capabilities of the watch function right now, but for now, just put the group on watch.
