I was playing with Pflow for some logo thingy ideas and had abit of a play around with some things but simming them in fumefx is tough and then has to get the particle count right so when i pflow the fumefx data, 3ds max doesnt crash/freeze due to lots and lots of particles. then i got to partition the particles in krakatoa then render Better copy: http://speedmodeling.org/smcfiles/ddwagnz_quicky_final_0001_0070.mp4 Rendered to OpenEXR - Sequenced out in Blender Frame Count: 70 Frame Rate: 24fps Dimensions: 800x600 Particles: God knows only how much XD Render Time/pf: under 1min 30sec or just abit higher, not really sure....

First movie rendered out of Source Film Maker using Alien Swarm assets. There are a few things wrong yes, like they are not unique in running (using imported sequence) and there is no sound... But i wasn't going all out on a test video. I'll prob do a poster in the end. Its using a basic map I made out of Hammer, if I poster it, I'll prob make some map changes.

3D Studio Max - Krakatoa Render Logo Test Draft for my video blog, just using just to get the effect with particles first then fix up issues at the beginning etc and then simming it with fumefx and then hopefully final render with proper Krakatoa feel to it

After watching a tutorial from videocopilot.net (Tutorial #92) i got following it abit, but didn't do the whole thing, but it looked like a cool effect and so i decided to create this. As the vid title says this is a work in progress, there are still a few things i want to fix up like the sequencing of the drawing which will be fixed shortly, The construction paperish background may look weird but to me it just works so don't nag about that! I want to add some sounds to that so that will be in the next WIP update if possible! the eraser effect was abit tricky but it sorta pays off i may tweak it a tad more for the next installment Enjoy!

Just another play around with Particle Flow, used Krakatoa to render it out due to speed, there are a few things wrong with it but the general idea was to generate from one shape (Sphere) to another sphere, since ive never done it before gave it a shot, experimented with vortex and wind force... Output to OpenEXR and sequenced in blender for final FFMPEG MP4 output

Ok second kind of title thingy i could use, again based off a tutorial from videocopilot.net which actually has some wicked stuff and recommend anyone there for after effects stuff :D Tutorial Link: http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials/moving_3d_lines/ Prop could of made the text appear sooner but meh Again sorry for the weirdness at the beginning, somehow i don't think youtube likes anything i render straight out to mp4 from aftereffects even though there is no audio, it thinks there is :S anyway Enjoy! or not enjoy, up to you!

End result based off a tutorial from videocopilot.net http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials/ancient_titles/ Made in After Effects CS4 May add in the light rays in another upload for comparison, eventually it will be used in all my videos so yeah.. Does look better not on youtube but i couldnt help that, it was sync issues with mp4 or flv and looks like above XD Vimeo Version: http://vimeo.com/12574257 Enjoy or not enjoy, up to you!
