Rocky River revisited
« on: June 17, 2015, 10:20:28 AM »
Here's the animation of the still I posted in images.

It was a little side project I worked on with one of our juniors who worked on the damsel fly.

That's fantastic!! That dragon fly looks awesome. Is it rendered in TG or comped in? If so, great work! If it's rendered in TG, did you animate the wings in TG or is it an animated obj sequence?

Looks really great. I am curious about what Hannes asked too.

Thanks  :)

The fly was modelled and rendered in Max with an HDR exported from TG and comped in After Effects.

There's some interesting workflow problems that weren't solved to the level I'd want. Camera in and out was an issue with unit conversions and the distance the scene is to the origin in TG.

Cheers

Thanks Oshyan.

I want to fix a few things first in post. The flickering rock on the left. The end abdominal segment shadow. Some time stretching on the launch. Improve the focus pull at the beginning. And a few other things I didn't get a chance to finish.

That's beautiful. Hard to focus on issues as it is just awesome.

Unbelievable good work!

I like especially the part when the steps of image developement are shown. Great!
