Quick question on the turntable concept, are camera zooms and pans allowable during the rotation or should it be a strictly fixed camera?

Heck, I'd say have some camera fun! I intend to!

(once my fever breaks... went camping and, as soon as we got home, I got some sort of fever bug)

Final Entry: $imon

I present - The Bakery




HD turntable link:
d=1

Low quality turntable link:


I wanted to make a very goofy looking car into a vicious killing machine. That's how I got to a three-wheeler, they just look so funny.. and what's more innocent than a three-wheeler? A three-wheeler from a bakery..
I wanted to keep the modeling simple a bit this time so nothing fancy. It is all modeled in Anim8or, then exported to 3d Studio Max and rendered the whole video in Vray. I changed the colors and contrast a bit in Photoshop afterwards. For the beauty render I made the basket, breads and grains in 3d Studio Max.
The logo was taken off Google so I can't take credit for that.


Good luck to all of you finishing your entries!


In the attachments:
clay render (Anim8or scanline), wireframe render, Anim8or beauty render (it took an hour for 1 frame to render, so unfortunately it was impossible to do a whole animation in Anim8or..)

As usual, $imon and Ensoniq5 produce some fine, original material that is great to eyeball over and over.

Gyperboloid, your machines are a bit too dark to make sense of.


As for me... Well, still dealing with a fever and having a time taking my original ideas seriously, so I figured I'd let the illness rule the day - it took me on a completely different path... I hope that by letting it run its course through this process, I can let the fever run its course and be gone :P

$imon: Excellent idea, lovely clean modelling as always.  I love how the turntable is a circular section through a road, kerb and all.  Brilliant!  I'd love one of these vehicles for the Monday morning traffic crawl... blast my way through!

Arik: My sure fire remedy for that sort of thing is Jalapeno pizza and plenty of orange juice and tequila!  Not sure if it actually works, but the tequila ensures you don't feel a thing!  Looking forward to seeing your work, looks cool so far.

Update... Working on textures. Yes, I know I sort of spoil the surprise... but here it is to date....



Ensoniq... I think that mix would do some wicked things to my bowels right now ;-)

haha I like where that is going, arik. The fever must be good for the inspiration! (I should try it myself...) I'm not sure if Ensoniq's nutrition suggestion is one to follow though lol.
There is some distortion on the model where the barrel meets the tank though. maybe you could look into that.
Oh I dont think this is your final render yet, but in the dark parts its a bit hard to make out the details, maybe try to up the ambient intensity in the scene lighting settings, or the ambient value of the materials?

Ensoniq: Thanks for the reply! I love those types of vehicles, maybe we'll have to have a race sometime :P
Sorry i didn't reply to your model yet, Ive been a bit busy.. It's looking great! I hope you will change the camera angle a bit for the final turntable though, it looks a bit like a miniature model at the moment.. I like the blocked camouflage! It looks battle-ready! Good luck finishing..
Ps. I'm like you - not a big fan of making weapons etc. but once you start it looks cool pretty fast haha.

$imon, by distortion do you mean the areas where the barrel sink into the turret?



If so, maybe this shot helps better portray what I'm attempting. This is styled after those wind-up tin toys that were made "a bit before your time." Thus, the slots in the turret and the tabs that insert from the barrel (and hatch on top). I made the tabs as if actually bent inside the turret as if holding the pieces together.

Otherwise, I'm not sure what you mean by distortion.

Oh that makes a lot more sense, Arik ;) You're right - I played with lego's when I was young, and even thats old at the moment..

there is an area in the shadow though that seems to be bulging out or something:

But I cant really make it out.. I'm sure youve got it under control haha. Just hope the fever won't catch up to you!
Good luck finishing :D

@Simon:  Great work.  I knew something was going to rise from the roof hatch, but side guns were total surprise.  Your machine is not just war machine.  It is infact Mafia War Machine, waiting to take out the entire gang.

I have not yet posted any WIP, but I am happy I could keep my enthusiasm up so far.

Here is an overall progress of my product so far.

I have yet not started with final rendering.
