    absolutely nonsense render times for one frame, non-sense!

  2. We’re into the final hour of our #Kickstarter, Still time to check it out guys, Halo 5 XBOX One Advert in a full VFX environment!

    Thank you in advance :)

  3. Lining this bad boy up for rendering tomorrow, can’t wait to get the tif sequences and get into compositing!

  4. Perfect track, in 3D space & on the 2D pane, lovely! :)

  5. 3 different normal maps, I’ve found that number 2 is working best!, need to still sort out the UV’s a bit more, add some more diffuse colour and completely add a specular map!, not looking bad for a beaten up floor panel though!

  6. thomasbarrymgfx:

    Found a free model of Master Chief thats good enough for what we need. Added some extra details to the arm and armour and brought it into Form and Plexus.Here’d be the result!

    Updated my plexus so it runs smoothly with OBJs now. Works very fast and easy to animate. This is to see how the wireframe arm is looking. More points and lines scanning the arm and wound will be added along with text data, all calculating the trajectory of the incoming shot.

  7. Check it out, 3 days to go!

  8. Phantom Dropship completely modelled and textured for our Halo short!, need to sort out the environment and start rendering!

  9. Coming on slowly but surely, Nearly all unwrapped, a lot of UV clean up though, I don’t want any stretching or strain on the textures! aiming for perfection, anything less is failure.

  14. Well, just had a glance through the footage from todays real life Master Chief shoot, looking through it quickly I am happy!, I think me, James & Tom did a great job of working with the environment we had considering we didn’t know the layout or the size of the house…

    I can’t see any real issues with the footage other than a little bit of noise on some of the darker shots which I’m sure won’t be a problem for good old neat video!, De-noise, colour grade and film grain… these are going to work lovely…

    Let the work begin… We also got a slo motion of the water hose spraying!, v cool!, Keep your eyes peeled #Halo fans!

  15. I know you #Halo fans want to help us!, please contribute and keep sharing! over half way funded guys!!!
