online journal, entry 15

Since last time, I have been working on my composition in Nuke, and today I have been rotoscoping for many hours. I am content with the result.

I am almost done with my soda can animation scene, which will appear at the end of my film. I modelled and animated the can i 3Ds max, and added effects and color correction in After Effects.

this is one image of the sequence I rendered from 3Ds max, and next is the final shot I rendered from AE

There's no sound as of now, but that will be added for the final piece ofcourse. I have had a meeting with a great guy called Alex, and he's happy to make music for my project.

things are looking good.

 Okay. A while since I posted last time, as there is much to do these days.

This is what I have been doing since last time.

* rendered everything from 3ds max
* comping in Nuke (ongoing)
*  begun working on the soda can scene, at the end of the film.

Here are some process images from the soda can scene. I used a subsurface scattering material for the glowing metal in the scene to make it look belivable. The metal cools down and the brand "dare" is revealed. I first tried to create the glow effect by blending and animating maps and self illumination, to create the effect, but this way turned out much better.
