animation: mock Advertisment for Blender

(stephen2002) #1

This project is nearly 1 year old, but I just now have a good place to put it up for viewing. The video is a 60 second “advertisement” for Blender, which is a 3D animation program. You are in a pinball machine, and every time the ball gets knocked into a “goal”, a feature is displayed.

It took about 2 weeks to make, including the rendering, so a few elements (such as the scoreboard) are missing due to looming deadlines. The reflections are done using environment maps (Blender has no ray-tracing), so they are not entirely accurate.

More images and the video are here:

Comments are welcome.
