Police Car Chase Animation in Blender

Hello Blender community! :smiley:


The Car Animation👇

A new Blender 2.90 CGI animation rendered on Cycles: A car chase with an Audi Q7 and a Audi RS4 Police car chasing through the city…
The vehicles come from the add-on “Transportation”: https://blendermarket.com/products/transportation. Cars are imported in Blender with the add-on, uv unwraped in Blender and textured in Substance Painter.

I use the RIGACAR add-on by digiCreatures for all the vehicles of this shot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3XQxA_-TzY

The vehicles, that compose the traffic, are animated along the same curve that create the road. All assets are high-poly but managed with an instance system. In that way, it’s possible to duplicate each vehicle many times, without overloading the scene in Blender. I added a random color gradient on the car paint shader of each vehicle, which allows to obtain a new color when I duplicate the car.

The building comes from the Metropolitan pack by videoCopilot: https://www.videocopilot.net/products/3d/metropolitan/

Very nice !

I feel like the only thing really missing is the Police Siren, it would add so much to the scene !

See you :slight_smile: ++

Gee that was intense and awesome. I agree with @tricotou . A police siren would’ve added more tension to the sequence and also made it more real… Police cars usually need to have the siren on while chasing so that everybody on the road leaves way. Amazing animation though!

Thanks for watching,

Yes but I think the engine sound is more pleasant to hear than a police siren…

Really exciting, great video, not too much or too little. I agree that there should be a siren though, cop car chases are not normally pleasant!
