CgTalk:FXWars! Roller Coaster Challenge:3
Modelling, simulating, and shooting an animation around a ROLLERCOASTER looks like a COOL way to show off what Blender can do!
But, I’m clueless as to why a recent post on the forum discussing this challenge says:
‘Guess us poor Blender users can’t enter this one. But roller coasters are cool; I suppose I can d/l a trial version of something and do the animation in that…’
Can someone write me, ‘why not???’
One of the rules of the challenge is that simulation should be used rather than keyframed animation.
Has the quoted ‘poor Blender user’ forgotten that Blender has a game engine?
If it is the case that Blender’s game engine is currently operational, could be used to simulate a rollercoaster ride of a cart and coaster, and used in conjuction with other Blender modules to create a fun animation…
could someone PLEASE write a polite and enlightening reply to the ‘poor Blender user’ (and any misinformed readers of that forum) to correct this misinformation?
And while you are at, why not enter the challenge and show them what Blender can do!
