Compositing Animation for WeirdHat's Contest


(DreamMaster) #1

Hi everyone, long time no blender. What’s up with ya? Anyways, two days ago and yesterday I have been working on this animation. I would love it if you can tell me what you think. I am willing to make 2nd animation, but I am out of ideas. :stuck_out_tongue:

It can be found via http://www.dm7.net/compdivx.avi

I have been reported that my paid web hosting is messed up lately, the staff on this company have informed me that they should fix this problem soon, or they would offer me a free month service. They said that it was a rare problem.

Please let me know what you think about my animation, I will be eternally grateful. :slight_smile:

The main thing that jumps out at me is the way the balls move when they get hit… all of them should move quicker and further… it feels like there is a lot of gravity on them or something :).

The one going towards the door could hit the door and bounce off at the proper angle, the other on screen ball should probably fly off screen.

I agree that the problem is with the balls movement : they stop awful sharply. Although such a thing is possible on carpet with long enough, dense enough hair, the balls look heavy and should show more inertia.

Otherwise your modelling, texturing (nice athmosphere and it’s only video) and even use of flares (although I usually don’t like them : cheap trick) is among the best I’ve ever seen

Yeah I agree, I guess I’ll have to play around with the balls. I guess it’s difficult to “replicate” the physic laws into Blender. :slight_smile: Anyways, thank you both for your comments.

You’re welcome. Physics are fairly easy to script, if you know Python… and Physic. I know none and so I am alway amazed when I see thing likehttp://www.elysiun.com/viewtopic.php?t=1524 .

Till next : salud.

sighs I don’t know Physics very well enough to script it with Python and I’m BARELY learning more about Python. If anyone would be willing to help me with Python with Physcis thingy, I would appreicate it very much. If I learned enough, perhaps I could help theeth with his scripts. I’m sure he will need someone that expert to assist :wink: I have learned enough about GUI so far, but other… no. :stuck_out_tongue: Hey I have an idea, you the reader who know math well enough, can tutorial me about how to script stuff in Python in Math Formula when we get on #BlenderCHAT ??? Just a suggestion… HINT HINT HINT HINT. :o

Anyways, as I said, I would play around with my cute little balls as if I was a cat, obversing the mysterious law of physics… and win a noble award and… and… blah… and… dreams on…
