The Package. The Car & The Time Is Running Out
:film_projector: :clapper: :film_strip: :movie_camera:

A new project by me ( Violence Children Studio )
It’s a proof of concept that a car chase can be done for free. With 1 camera. Free Software
and NO ACTUAL CARS.

The project is strongly relying on Blender features like:

  • Tracking
  • Shadow Catcher
  • Ray Tracing Render ( Cycles )
  • Compositing

THIS PAGE I CREATED TO CHECK THE PERCENTAGE STATUS OF THE PROJECT

And early stage first few seconds…


(Blender Dumbass) #4

Working on improving the orginizer tool
Rewriting the interface so it will look more like a painting rather then a GTK program
(using drawables)


(Blender Dumbass) #5

I gonna give myself month after finishing the new organizer to actually make the movie. It’s probably going to be enough because the project is very small. It’s more of the organizer organization project then actual movie project.

(Blender Dumbass) #10

Ok this shot was also easy


(Blender Dumbass) #11


Working on another car for the short


(Blender Dumbass) #12


More of that car so far #workingfast


(Blender Dumbass) #13


More of the car


(Blender Dumbass) #14

OK. I’ve Done the clean version of the car I guess. And I need to do the dirt texture, dust. and other thing to make it look good and realistic.

So this is the Israelian Police Car Texture


This is an example texture for it’s plates.

This is the OPEN GL


AND THE RENDER


(Blender Dumbass) #15

Rigged in a very fast time

OK shado changes are hard.
This is a problem when you have a shadow from a car on to a shadow catcher. And you want it to blend perfectly with the existent shadows from buildings and other objects.


So I masked the shadows. And rendered 2 different shadows with 2 different settings.


And then blended between them using the mask
( tho there was a lot of color and intesnity correction to do this.

Also I needed to color correct the backdrop part to fit the shadow color scheme
Since sun gives it a yellowinsh tone. Darkening the yellow will not do you the best shadow.

You can see there is a desaturation happening at the place where shado should be

THIS IS THE FINAL IMAGE… (before the grading in the VSE that adds to it an effect of 16 mm film )

THIS IS MAGIC… What am I seeing? You don’t believe how easy it became to make those shots. ( still want to change the guy inside to a chromakeyed actor


(Blender Dumbass) #18

Now with the actor instead

TRASH for the next part of the short.
