[VFX] A Transformer in a middle school yard


after my first attempt about a destruction of middle school yard here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8NZwhOqJmk&hd=1, I’ve used the footage again to integrate the Transformer of fathom45.

The transformation car -> robot is from fathom45 a bit modified.

It’s here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=couOP02GlmE&feature=youtu.be&hd=1

Or by clicking on picture :


This is very cool and it looks like the Transformer is really in the scene. That, in itself, is an accomplishment that some SyFy channel moviemakers cannot achieve.

the link goes to your destruction car FX video, which in itself is quite cool, though the dirt not falling into the hole doesnt look right, even though it later sinks down as if on an elevator

Thanks both for feedback :).

@ Small Troll : yes, you’re right about the dirt. It should start fall from the center and finish at the boudaries of the hole. I’m thinking of improve this :).

Really outstaning…made me laugh.

Great work on blending that scene. Quite believable. :slight_smile:

Keep us updated to more of your work.

Nice compositing!

Thanks for encouragements :). Really appreciated cause I spent time on it.

Hi I’m quite new to Blender and was wondering how you get the shadows into the scene

when you press the set up scene button after tracking, blender automatically adds a shadow catcher to the scene and sets it up for you in the compositor

David Ward has a great video here on how to set up shadows in the Blender internal and cycles render engines.

And nice job on this animation id like to add!

Thanks DustinDover :).

@ @VoxelHound, there’s a few ways to catch in Cycles without using BI : one of them -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6RlGQtYsZU&feature=youtu.be
