We set up a dedicated forum for the VFX Challenges Work In Progress threads and here it is!
I was thinking there could be a new type of challenge on this site. I visit the site on a daily basis and there are several very active an popular threads based on people trying to figure out how a specific effect was done either for a commercial or even a movie. (For the example...
Now that the VFXChallenges are now underway, i thought id start a thread where we can all spew out some ideas for future challenges ;)
SO, go to it...spew :spew: LOL
Seriously, post up some ideas...
So here goes the basic structure of my scene and things the way I thought them. For me, the scene should be working as a little story, so it's all about storytelling. A scene that tells something. The good thing is that 'Alice in Wonderland' it's well known by all the people and I can assume that...
Sorry to join in so late. Although just a few days are left, I would like to give it a try. Thank you for your attention to this entry.
First of all, the storyboard.
and a creature design
Definitely going to get in on the challenge, since I'm out of work atm. I definitely want to finish it, but I still hope to get too busy to in the coming weeks. For now here's what I threw together.
I'm a compositor more than a 3D guy, but I've used Lightwave for a long time as a hobby, so I'm...
This is my first Matte painting for the VFX Challenge. Actually, this is my first matte painting EVER. So all crits and comments are very welcome. I have no plan atm for which direction I want to go with this. Just going along for the ride.
Hey guys, I'm in, heres a placeholder for my WIP!
Im really excited that the vfxchallenges are finally back so im definitely going to submit to the comeback challenge.
my idea surrounds the soldier being chased by a low flying small ship. the whole chase is set at breakneck speeds and ends up leading to a finale shot of the snowboarder jumping...
Well I don't know what to say besides I just found out about this. So mad!!! But everyone's work is looking great, and I have this sweet shot in my head. So I'm gonna' at least start it here.
I'll be posting throughout the day, and hopefully by the end of the (LAST) day, I'll at...

Joining this a bit late but lets see how far I go.
Hello, my name's Ben and this is my first post on VFX Talk. I was made aware of this challenge by my compositing lecturer, who has set the class to attempt this challenge for part of our module grade.
I plan on having 3 shots for this piece. The first is the boarder (with a camera matched...
This looks like a very interesting challenge. I am starting quite late but I think I should give it a try.
Will be posting my WIP updates soon.
So I've started a little bit late and I had little done. Anyway I'm sharing it with you. After plan the scene and how the shots should be I worked in creating a good and realistic snow shader in Maya(+Mental Ray) and this is the result.
I've created some ice mountains with SSS, but I...
had to create another thread. the previous one seems to be corrupted. (to the moderator: please delete my previous wip thread, tx!)Deleted
The concept : the soldier is riding his snowboard and a giant furry worm is chasing him.
- the environment will be MattePainting (photo retouching)
I think I will give this a go. Looking at the footage this shot is going to be difficult to say the least. The first thing I will do is storyboard the concept and then I will make and animatic. From there it should be matte painting and projection. Lastly particles and simulations to plus the...
I'll give this a try.
- posting soon concept art and storyboard.
OK i found this site a few days back and after seeing this contest i decided to try it...but since this is my first attempt in making something this big i started to model first and now that i am assured that i can do this ...here i am
i have not seen star treak but i think its supposed to be...
I don't know if I am going to be able to finish this but in the mean time here is my first test using Houdini.
I am trying to create a procedural material and terrain that kind of looks like the antarctica .
Temporarily I am using a grid with the footage as a proxy.
I would like to create...
I think I will try this one to. :rolleyes:
The opening shot will look something like this. I have 3 other frames i need to bring into Photoshop and mock up, used the snowfall over the week to build an igloo. Hopefully it wont melt and i can use it with live action talent (me). Weekend come quick!
Hopefully I'll be able to finish this. I'm quite busy and have to move this weekend but I'm going to try and fit it in.
Progress so far. Just my initial matte painting. Also, my first matte painting. Still have some tweaking to do on it. Then I will camera map it in Cinema 4D...
After seeing the footage, i'm thinking about making the obvious, the jetboard guy chased by a monster, while making quite a mess with the environment. Chasing through some looming rocks and ice, while making a mess. Or....chased by hail of avalanche......either way, both are theraphy...
I began to work out on the video and here is what I have so far. It's still a bit jerky but it will hopefully improve by the end of the week.
Here is my plan although I doubt that I will have time to do that for the due date:
1) Restore video + CC restored frames
Hola,i donpt know if i gonna get some time to play but here a small progress
i plan to do some monster chasing the guy smashing ice wall and crap,well at least thatīs the plan
Just an small test with sss i need to model the cave and send to zbrush for detailing.
30 sec its a little to...
