This is a short animation that I’ve been working on for almost three years.
It’s about Spiderman in a city, jumping and doing some acrobatics.
Please watch it here:
It started just as an animation exercise, after doing the "Blender Animation Pipeline" training at the Blender Institute at the end of 2012 with Beorn Leonard, Pablo Vazquez and Francesco Siddi as teachers (yes, CAMINANDES team!), but then it became more and more complicated and exciting for me, so I've decided to do a short video, adding a whole city! Everything in this project was done in Blender, and I did it all by myself, except for the people models (Blendswap) and the vehicles (tf3dm.com). Credits are at the end of the video. I've used Cycles for the render, but internal for the smoke. I must thank Pablo Vazquez and Sebastian König who helped me at the beginning of the project, and a HUGE THANKS goes to Francesco Siddi, who really helped me a lot, especially during the last months of this project. Without him I would never have finished it! I've used a sun lamp for illumination with an HDRI image for the sky (from cgskies.com) I have an Intel i7-3930K with 12 threads, and a GeForce GTX Titan (I use Linux), and yet some frames took up to 45 minutes to render! You can see some images attached: some of the frames, GLSL, wireframe, compositing nodes, the environment, the city...) It has cost me a big effort to complete this project. I hope you like it!
