I'm a bit of an all-rounder, really - characters, environments, vehicles, high-poly, low-poly, particles/effects, compositing - it was more just to fill a hole in the reel, there wasn't much in the way of environments in there.

A couple more for those that can run them...



and my old reel...

it was all done in 3DS Max with Painter for the textures, though it could be done in just about any 3D app really. Compositing was done in Combustion.

I wouldn't hold my breath for longer versions, it was just really a sample environment for my reel.

I want to do some good vehicles that can hold up, so there may be something that can come out of that that can show up later.

I would love to do some more meggage, but I need to start getting some money in, and once I'm working it's hard work doing 3D all day and then coming home and doing it.

I'm still going to be working on it, just to get some characters in there - characters are the most time consuming part, you've got to model, texture, rig, animate etc. Environments are a lot easier by comparison.

I knew this was a bad idea :)

Actually, there is a second flow going the other way, lower down (you get a glimpse between the two buildings) but it's hard to see...

I want to add some more traffic to the road going across the centre, some big McMahon style trucks, that sort of thing. And maybe part of a ship moored by the dock in the midground.

I think I did the original model over a weekend ages ago, and spent this weekend rendering it.

There's quite a few layers and messing about in a compositor (like photoshop for video) to adjust colours, haze, glows etc. which makes a big difference to the final render.

I think the reason it didn't work is maybe because you'd need Windows Media Player 9...

I've just put up a version done with a different method of encoding the video, hopefully that would be work with older versions of media player, it'd be great if those that couldn't get it to play give it another try.

I've just been buffing up my showreel and finally got round to a camera move on a model that's been sitting around for ages...

It's just for the reel rather than anything bigger, and I plan to add some small scale characters and some traffic on the roads, but it's looking OK so far...

BTW it's a 1280x720 WMV file - I think the min spec that it will play on is about a 1.8GHz PC, but it may work on slower machines...

Any comments welcome,

To be honest it didn't occur to me until it was pointed out here (I didn't read the editorial).

Alan was definitely right to publish, I've seen some pretty strange decisions after certain events. ABC pulled Reign of Fire after the London bombings.

It's a pretty tenuous link (I think the dragons are first discovered in the underground, and the climax is in a post-apocalyptic London), but it seems a bit of a stretch...

One thing that seems a bit strange is that they challenged him after he made a bus journey.

If you're that suspicious of him it seems a bit of a  risk to take considering there have been two buses targetted in the last couple of weeks.

It does show how unreliable eyewitnesses can be, one  had him as carrying a rucksack, another saying that he thought he was pakistani.

It seems the police are really hot on the whole prejudicing a trial thing these days... compared to Blunkett a while back.


I don't blame them from being very reticent, it's more the rolling news channels that are ravenous for any details they can use to pad out their reports.

I couldn't watch the Catherine Tate Show - the trailer she did for the show really put me off it...

I thought Extras was pretty good, though I think the xfm shows are the funniest thing that Ricky Gervais has done, mainly because of Karl Pilkington.
