David and Goliath Animation



Hello all

Here's an animation I worked on along with 3 other people. My roles were technical director, modeller (everything apart from environment), special effects, rendering(settings), UV mapping (some).

Ive uploaded multiple versions, just depends on how high quality youd like to watch it, id prefer you download the rapidshare link because its full quality, youtube has the lowest quality, google is around average.
Youtube link Low Quality
Rapid Share Link High Quality(Although has some problems with all players other than Windows Media Player for some reason:s, if video is dark or unclear try another player, or try downloading latest divx)
Google Video Link

OHHHHHHH MYYYYYY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if u can make a LBA movie such as this , u'll be on the LBA3 team in no time !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. : 3 flaws in ur animation :

- when Goliath reaches for his sword on his back , the hand goes the other way , making the elbow twist very wrong
- when David takes Goliath's mask off , his head flattens a bit
- when David swings the rope in the air , the sound effect is faster than the animation

the rest , pure;y AMAZING !!!!!!!!!! congrats to you and your team

I don't find anything wrong with the first point quetch said...
the way Goliath falls down after David gets him away from his back is weird...
other than that, very impressive workd

Hehe, cheers. Well, we were actually quite short on time, this was quite a rushed project! We had a handin and i litterally did not sleep for 3 days before the handin, despite that there were quite a few errors. I was running around solving rendering problems (render per frame were taking 7-14 minutes, i reduced them for 1-2 minutes) and we were doing compositing (pain in ass XD)

Good. Not perfect, but good.
I agree with Quetch's first 2 flaws + when Goliath swings this thing at David and he grabs it, it doesn't seem to smooth. You see him ducking and suddenly he's grabbing it and flying in the air.

If the source was rendered to divx then...
*cough* stage6.com *cough*


I refuse to watch a YouTube or GoogleVideo version, else I wont be ableto judge fairly
I would use the rapid share, but it never works for me. (IP settings or something).

How bigs the file?
Maybe I could host for a week or two?

Tell me about it, the quality was cut in half.

You know what UNI deadlines are like, i think if 2 things changed i think the project would have been warcraft quality.

a) Get rid of Sarah, and replace her with someone that actually works. Yeah im PROPER pissed of with her (She took credit for all the compositing, when in reality she did 30-40% of it, and another guy who wasnt on our team kindly helped us with the rest, Ali Graham (THANKYOU ALI). She also took credit for "rendering" when she should have taken credit for "render wrangling" and even then David did most of that, I actually did the rendering, i.e. setting up the settings for each particular scene depending on what was required) There are two key things missing from this project,
a) a high definition landscape (I asked sarah to explore Z-Brush for landscape, she was too lazy to bother)
b) Cloth for David, because the level of detail on david is quite low to what we had originally intended, again sarah refused that role (she spent 3 months working on a landscape that would have, at the very very very most taken me a day)

b)more time, one or two more weeks means i could finalise a few more special effects (some of which were ready, such as breathing smoke, and foot step effects, and a fog effect) and stick em in the compositing stage. Also, the UNI network was proper fucked, it uses an nfs file server system, we had litterally terrabytes of data killing the network to the point that my hardware renders (which usually take 5s) were taking 2-3 minutes!?!?! but that was on the last night only!

Dark, ill upload it using yousendit in a while
