Here is a commercial, made in our very small studio. All CG was fully done with Blender (really a great tool!).
You can watch the video only, or see this video with description at our website (in russian only for now, but with some pictures ).
When project started, I used Blender 2.49, but in the end of it Blender 2.52alpha was released and the last shots was made with it.
And here is a very short video of project’s workflow (production and post-production).
I hope you’ll like it.
Wow… impressive! Congratulation
Cool! That actually looks very real.
Wow! How did you do that?
Follow the last link of the post - there are a few answers.
Very, very professional. That ice material is jaw dropping. Great job!
Dude that’s sweet! I even want to try the soda! Very creative too!
This is so cool. I’ve watched it like 6 times. Great job
Thanks for the great workflow vid too, very instructive.
Thumbs up and respect! Great work, great workflow presentation.
And another reminder why you always need to watch a behind-the-scenes video to the very end …
How did you replace the blue cube with something CG? That always trips me up.
Wait, so his hands/fingers are usually actually CG in this video? It looks amazing by the way. I as well would like to try that drink now.
Thank you all for so high marks! :))
Concerning your questions — fingers at the final footage were real. CG hands needed for shadows and realistic reflections and refractions.
rvngizswt, the answer on your question can be really big, because I had to use several different softwares to make it look good. All I can recommend is to search for compositing tutorials, or watch some movies’ b-sides. In trurth, most methods and tricks I learned from the ‘making of’ movies and articles for ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ and ‘Transformers’.
Wow this is brilliant !! Awesome job ! Thanks a lot for sharing your tricks.
cute advert and good in technicals
