|This is a music video showreel for our films, It's hard for people to watch long films with modems so I thought it would be nice to put some scenes to music, ( you guys should do it )|
Anyway the music is more mushy than action.

i always enjoy this little montages, and cant wait for when the team and I have been around long enough to make one. i didn't like the music, and I was kind of excpecting more of an action thing, but it was, as you said, mushy, and I'm not a big fan of mush. I havent seen your starship trooper movie yet, and it looks interesting. ill have to check it out

The shots (especially the 3D monsters) were quite ok.
But I did not like the music. Especially for the action packed fight scenes I would prefer a more impelling sound.

Well at least the idea worked if waser now wants to watch the starship troopers film.
It's given him an idea without having to download the whole film.

This reminded me of a wedding video or something someone would make as a memorial to one of their friends who died. That's just because of the music. Music can really affect the overall feel of a piece. I actually urge you to change it, unless you're sure of the feel you're going for.

Whoa that shot with the ground falling into magma was awesome! How exactly did you achieve that?

The earth breaking up was not done by me
I had the help of a guy that did cgi for the tv show LEXX, very talented guy, from what i understand he used lightwave.

If possible, could you explain how you could get a similar effect (ground breaking) w/ Bryce5? That's if you have any ideas.

funny enough, before that guy made that i had a try myself
i used bryce 5 and After Effects but chromonator will work just as fine.
What i done was create a lava base ( bryce has a template for lava ) and imade it move ( using the water moving effect, you can get tuts on it on the net )
then i made two walls ( rock faces ) going down.
the way mine worked was in AE I put them all in lava being the lowest layer and put the two side rock faces touching each other.
I then put my footage on top and masked the middle going outwards for about 6 secounds, the rock face below (layer ) i matched up to my footage that now had a gap.
the final result was good and you could see lava at the bottom.
I showed the cgi guy mine and he said not bad, but then he made what you saw which rocks.

when the bugs disappear behind a real object is that using the masking? I've had Alam for awhile but i haven't used it extensively. Also, how did you guys get the ground to come apart like that, did you cut the image in 2 and animate the middle or something?

the grournd breaking up question was asked before ( a few posts up )
I created the bugs then turned them into plugins, once i had them i used the mask over the real life object and when my bug went behind it looks like it's behind it.
( in alamdv you'll need to render to see what the finished bit will look like, otherwise you just see a white square or shape)
