Hi Brian,

I'm sorry, it wasn't because I wanted to make fun of you, I think it is a great piece of work...

it is something I wish I can make in the near future...

btw. are you finish with the intro to your demoreel from the other tread?

it is because I had some ideas, but they are proberly not to any use if you already have finished it... but if you haven't finished it yet, and want to hear the ideas I will post them... but be aware of some bad drawed scetches to visualize the written word...

regards

Love the render Brian.. and love the noise added to give it that photorealistic effect . Awesome stuff, awesome textures, awesome everything. The model may be a bit simple.. but how you have finished those renders is awesome.

BTW.. that downloaded in less than 10 seconds.. if you have it with a bigger filesize.. and bandwidth doesnt matter on your end, then i would love to see it at top quality .

Pretty good. But you need to dirty t up a bit. The plane is too clean. Also, take down the glow around the engines a bit. It doesnt do that in real life.

But the model is very detailed, very clean. I did have to look twice at the first one to make sure it wasn't real.

:cheers:

Hi Brian,

sorry for the delay, passed out early yesterday...

I been thinking on a few ideas about the text... one was to let the letters pop out of a stone, and then a pensel with colors over them, but that would proberly make the intro a bit to long...

about the letters Demo(reel) 2003, I thought about making the word Demo(reel) in flame letters, and then puff like they were blown out, replaced by smoky letters with "2003"... but is was just an idea, and it might not suite the rest of the picture...

it is just I think that the text alone make it a bit "naked"... in the meaning of a bit "tame" not in a negative sense... but when I have seen your work around I believe you can give it a bit more power...


If I should use the idea as it is now... (same scene for the intro) this is the Idea I have... I haved tried to write it down and will use the numbers on the attached image... to make it a bit visualized, what it is I'm mening with the text...

1.) I was thinking maybe a couple of spotlights behind the letter's... and maybe give the D's a more metallic look e.g. Gold with some screws, like it has been screwed together... (I haven't drawed it, since I don't know how to do it...)

2.) and then maybe one time in the animation the give a shining star glow from them... also maybe a bit of fog... and some of the other things KBrown mentioned in the other thread... -->
http://forum.simplymaya.com/showthre...&threadid=4086

3.) and then a lightning stroke/line like Emo said... from the left to the right, bouncing out of the screen again, while Brian Ellebrecht appairs on the scene... --> 4.)

5.) and then while the letters are beeing shot out of the screen, the background will begin to open (e.g. like an carpet)

6.) and then an jumping movement like you are are jumping into the screen and following the plane... --> 7.) to the rest of the animation

regards,

Strarup
