I know its not friday but hot off the press...
mostly modelled with Inventor then exported to 3ds for rendering by my tallented colleague
Wow thats very impressive! Now after seeing that, who in their right mind would want to post something ?! Its like grade school when the best kid in the class goes up to do their presentation and you are the lucky one to follow it...
If anyone is interested, here are the vessel specifications... if you would like more information, visit globalmaritime.com
The movie was produced for Windforce 2012 last month and by all accounts, went down well. Most of the models were already there in Inventor format a certain amount of detail needed to be added. The whole 3d studio texturing, lighting, animating process took 1 guy about 2 months. because of the tight timescales, some of the scenes needed to be cut and there are elements that will be improved on in the coming weeks.
I was very impressed both by the amount and quality that was produced in such a short timescale, this is mainly credited to the guys skills but also the improvements in software
Some finishing touches have been added to the movie... A crane to lift the foundations onto the vessel and what I think is a very realistic seascape showing the unloading at sea.
Pretty awesome.... makes what I do seem pretty inadequate. LOL
Excellent work, congratulations to author.
