Ok folks, for the forseeable future, this should be the last of those pesky FX CHALLENGES
FX CHALLENGE 02
The Rube Goldberg Machine!
should appeal to EVERYONE out there!
Modelers, Effects artists, Animators, Texture Painters, etc
What IS a Rube Goldberg machine you ask?
Check it out:

Modelers and Texture painters can delight in making ANYTHING and EVERYTHING they want to make.
Effects artists can enjoy the freedom to make wild and wacky effects.
The major point to this is that this is a SIMULATION!
Active/Passive Rigid-Body, softbody, and nCloth DYNAMIC SIMULATIONS!
Physics is the heart of the shot!
...you get the idea
Your FINAL entry in the "final entry" thread must NOT contain sound.
Sound is great as an addition to your WIP thread, or your reel, but not here
The main reason is, as we all know, sound adds an element to cinematics that push it over the top, and so to remain fair to those with no scoring or foley abilities, we have decided that the final entries need to stand by themselves to allow for a larger group of competitors
I know it's a bummer, but thems the rules.
***The official start and deadline dates for this challenge will be the same 8-week production schedule as last challenge:
START: Monday May 12th
Due to the complexity of a majority of the remaining entries, I am extending the deadline until THIS SATURDAY!
The Challenge official deadline is now this-coming Saturday!
(All day, July 12th)
If you are interested in joining this challenge, please format your WIP thread subject as follows:
Good luck all and I hope to see you there!
