This is actually a trailer for the book Whirlwind by David Klass. It has several scenes with captions and music to match. This was done partly as a school assignment, but mostly because I like Blender. Here is the youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldfcfzStgD0
I would love come constructive criticism and comments. Before you comment though, there are several things that I’ve already noticed, but it’s too late to change.
- In the forest, the ivy leaves to the very right are vibrating. The light beams also get overly bright towards the end.
- During the fly-over of the forest, lots of the trees flash. This is because the billboards are on the same spot. (Z-fighting is the correct term I believe)
- When the guy looks at you, there’s a black artifact on the bottom of his chin where a seam is, and his eyes don’t fit in his eye-sockets quite right.
Most of these problems are fixable, but I just ran out of time. I might come back to this and fix some of those problems.
Also, this is my first animation, excluding one simple fish tutorial and a couple moving boxes.
