Tunnel Drill - VFX/Animation for Amateur Movie

This is part of an amateur movie project I’m working on.

Rendered with Eevee in Full HD. A single frame takes 16 - 30 seconds on GTX1080. To limit render times I did the following things:

  • always bake the lighting cache
  • replace complex procedural textures by baked/image textures
  • avoid particle systems for scattered stones, replaced by displaced mesh

I used some free sketchfab models (truck, crates, barrels) and kitbash parts (hydraulic) to speed up modeling.


Great work, congrats.
