You know something, Cori? You're brilliant. :)

Really, I've silently lurked around the forums and seen your work, animations, models, you name it. You've got a great eye and some real talent.
Just want to emphasize the animation part, you can really go far with that if you work at it. Your last few animations have looked and… animated?… very well.

The progress on this is wonderful. That last render looks amazing IMO.

Really? Thanks! I think that's the nicest thing anyone on the forum has ever said to me :)

Anyway, here's the first movie render.


I'm not sure I like how fast the camera moves to get in front of the crusher, but I don't know how I can fix it and have it still be in the right place at the right time.  My blue light also messed up, but I can fix that.  Once I have my official render, I'll use Wax to add spraying steam to the scene.

Hey Cori! Well done here. You have really come a long way. I remember when you 1st started and though you were a bit rough around the edges, you showed some talent. You can really tell that your persistance paid off. I'm glad to see that your still at it and I hope that you continue. Great job with the lighting. I think the video quality is on the low side but from what I can tell you did a good job on the textures. Good job keep it up.

WOW!!!! Cori, you really outdid youself with this one! I guess the biggest suggestion I can make is to use the Graph Editor to round out the movement of your camera. It's really great looking, how long did the render take?

The render went pretty fast for rendering the machine, but as soon as it gets to the pony, it slows WAAAAY down...

Here's my latest render


I can see that my crusher is opening too far after it crushes, so I must have forgotten to add some extra keys. Maan.. I don't want to render all that again!  It took me all day! (from about 1PM to somewhere around 11:30PM). I guess I could leave out the pony for the next render and then render the ponies flying around for the next part.

Pretty nice there CoriDavis! I like the song, and can see what you mean about the crusher. I'd say it's worth re-rendering, though you only have to do that little part and then substitute the frames.

Keep us updated!

I'm following your thread silently but I must sat that current result looks very good! I like how you managed to animate water flowing out of pipes - cartoony, simple, clever way, and very convincing with correct timing. I'll be looking forward too see further part of the story.

Thanks for all the positive feedback! I think I'll leave out the steam. Wax's particles just aren't giving me the desired effect.  They look like they would be good for making snow and that's about it. Anyway, I'll be animating onward.  I'll still have the clip if I decide to change my mind.

This documentary video is great inspiration for anyone who wants to make an authentic "factory" setting. I'm sure you will find all the gauges, cylinders, pipes and hoppers and other details that you need to make your scene work:


Here is another Victorian pumping station that is more colorful:
