so basically our personal project this year was a 30-second 3d short produced alone. since last year was a complete train wreck in terms of starting 3d, i began this project in new software - maya instead of 3dsmax, so it was like starting from square one as i began the production on this. it started in september but with a total of ten other classes along the way i haven't been working on it on a consistent basis since the beginning. some of you might remember a flash animatic i produced for this in october. it has changed a lot since then, i'm actually pretty happy with it considering 3d is completely not my style and i tried something really out of my element. that being said though, i'm never going to do a 3d cartoon again unless if it's something i'm required to do for work or school. it is not worth my time and now i can say for sure that i enjoy the creative process of creating a 2d cartoon much more than a 3d one, since i've actually produced one now.

anyway without further ado here is the link to the cartoon: http://www.thebackalleys.com/flash/eof.php. p.s. it was a complete BITCH to get this into streaming video for the web without making it look like crap/using crappy video players, but i'm glad i figured out how to do it. there's also a verrry nice xvid version of the video you can download if you don't want to wait for the hi-res quicktime video, which is 30mb larger and is pretty much the same quality as
.

hope you guys enjoy it and don't bother with critique/suggestions.. i've been staring at this stupid project 24/7 for the past couple of weeks monitoring renders and adding final touches. trust me, i know better than anyone what is wrong with it but i'm never going to change it, much less touch this thing ever again lmao.

and now, back to flash. phew

Holy crap. x: I loved the movement of the robot (or whatever it was) when it was kneeling on the floor.

I enjoyed it. Funky. 8D

Ah, watched it at DeviantArt. The colour theme is pretty much similar to Tron indeed.

Ahh yes the joyful terrors of working with 3D.

Did you enjoy Maya more than 3DSMax at least?

oh man I just watched it you may not enjoy 3d but you are really good at it! I'm curious about what you used to make the robot if you did it in nurbs or not I mean. ehh kinda looks like polygonal to me since it's a robot and all you can get away with it too. I really liked it and I know how much of a pain in the ass it was to make that movie by the way. especially because MAYA is such a huge program...

Oh, wretched ephemeral race … why do you compel me to tell you what it would be most expedient for you not to hear? What is best of all is utterly beyond your reach: not to be born, not to be, to be nothing. But the second best for you is—to die soon.

End of file was a one fine piece of 3D animation. But i assume 2D is more your style, and indeed it suits you well.

WPS you are really immature, RTIL is a nice normal guy and i'm not kissing his ass either - he's earned his title, and that's my opinion. Why the fuck would you join RTIL's forum if you had a problem with him and his society? I thought you left besides, yes you have talent but that doesn't give you the right to be an arrogant prick - i don't even care if you're joking.

did you right-click and download the video, and it didn't play anything? you probably need to download the xvid codec. it's free. http://www.xvid.org/Downloads.15.0.html

yes, maya is much better than 3dsmax. reason being is that maya was actually created with animators in mind. 3dsmax didn't even have animation tools when it was created, but then users asked for them to be included so they started throwing them in. problem is it that it's clearly not built for animators and its interface is less than forgiving. maya has a weaker workflow but it's clearly  the stronger program. actually, you can make maya a lot stronger because it's almost 100% customizable. you can completely warp the look of the software to the way you want it, make custom menus, shortcuts and amazing custom controls for your rig. but of course you have to learn to do that, i'm not quite there yet. still, compared to the issues i  had with max last year, maya was a total cakewalk. it only crashed on me three or four times the entire year while last year it was an every day issue w/ max.

excellent work. i dunno 3D has a lot of potential but i agree with you about it being way more limiting than 2D
I have more of a life writing this review at 1145 pm than you guys do making these movies. . .
