The models rotate too quickly; you can't see the detail in the models. Slow it down a bit.

i agree with next design. the wires go too fast. Would it be good to have some text saying how many faces it is or is that dumb?

good work tho!

I watched it again and I agree with the others that the wires spin a bit too fast.

Not sure how it would affect the rythm and tempo of the piece but maybe the rotation rate could be slowed as the wires are drawn and them resume as they transition to the next view.

I like HH's idea to possibly fade in and fade out the poly count along with the wire frame transitions since it's for the game industry that could be of interest.

Over all it's good though. I like the parchment affect and the transitions are good.

tha ks for the feedback guys i didn't realise the rotations were that fast , i'm working on the things people have pointed out, and will upload a new version with some extra's,

im trying to keep withing the 2minute mark, as i know most employers will get bored if the showreel last to long,

anyway thanks again,

imo music is extremely annoying. I would select some more ambient/peaceful track instead. Yeah agree spins are far too fast.
