Digital Environments-Day 12-The Final Film


Hey guys, it's been a very long while but finally I have the final film for our Digital Environments project. Here it is hope you enjoy it and while I didn't really do any animation in the end, I was still responsible for the concept design and I had a great time working on it was a special project to be part of. And in the end what we aimed this whole thing to be is an awareness for the African Savannah the fact that people are thing about building a highway onto it. Well if you agree with me that that is just a terrible idea, then look up on google on how you can try and prevent that from happening. But anyway please enjoy the final film.

Digital Environments-Day 10

Hey guys, this is day 10, and I have something quite cool to show you tody. I didn't think I could do it at first but I finally have, I have made a lioness move. At first I didn't think I could do but after having some help from my mates in the group I was able to make a piece of animation and I have to say I'm quite proud of it but I do believe that I can do better on something else someday. The character model you saw in the last blog report was modelled by Perri and was rigged by James and I feel very honoured to of made their model come to life and I think it's very great achievement especially when I thought I couldn't do it. Anyway here it is, hope you like it and talk to you again soon.

Digital Environments-Day 9

Hey guys, this is day number nine, but I'm sure you already know that from the title above. Forgive there but today I have to take on a whole new task and am a little bit dreading it. I was going and still am going to do environmental animation I think, but still nothing has been done and we need to get this project done for good and from the sound of our leader Gary.... fast! So that means I can't wait to do my environmental animation and I have to do something now. I have to do some proper animation and that's something I am dreading and have not been prepared for, but Gary needs me to do it and I really have to do to get it done and that means I now have to put my skills to the test and really create a worthy good piece of animation. So wish me luck, what I will have in this report is the model I have to animate of a lioness and also a few videos of actual lionesses to get the feel. Soon I'll get back to you when I have done the final product. See ya later.

Digital Environments-Day 8

Hey guys, this is day number eight and no I haven't begun doing the environment animation yet for the project but should be soon because this week it's out last week before we all break up for christmas this year. But anyway in the meantime I've taken the opportunity to build some scenery pieces for the Digital Environments piece. I've made three rock formations that will be placed into our Serengeti landscape. What was done was Gary our leader, downloaded a rock from our A-drive folders where we keep a lot of the stuff we've done on this projects. Anyway so we downloaded a rock that I then took and modelled into three different rock formations that will soon be placed into our Serengeti world. So here they are, hope you like them and I shall get back to you soon, take care.

Digital Environments-Day 7

Hey guys, on this day number 7 of writing about the Digital Environments project, I present to you a test shot that James has done for the sun set over our own version of the African Serengeti, and in my opinion it looks spectacular here it is, and I'll see you all soon. Here's James giving you a little introduction;

I have done a basic test of a sun setting, using envSky.  It is only very quick but let me know if you think this works well or not.
