I just spent an hour making a 3d model in powerpoint because i have no other software to do that. I exported then touched up with Teal and Graphic Converter X. Check it out:

Pretty Cool, but I can't imagine taking an hour to do that.

Why didn't you just "steal" a picture of a real clapboard off the internet and just paste your text overtop
it'd have take you like 5 minutes

I don't think there's an animation. Just an image.

there is no animation. It took me an hour to align everything to the right angle and to appllly textures manually. Can Blender do animation?

I'm sorry, but Powerpoint is the worsr possible program you could have used for this.
Yes blender can do animation and all that Jazz, just look at effstop's Mechanical Mayhem trailer, it's what he used for the giant robot and metor.
However you'll have to learn it, and I'm sorry to say it's not exactly the easiest program in the world. It's worth it though.
Another alternative would be to buy Cinema4D, which is considerably easier and more powerful.

You should switch the 3D mode to perspective instead of parallel in that pic.

You have more pride in your work when you've taken the time to achieve something.

Indeed, just don't go mad with that phrase, like theforce.net have done. Doing that results in a hate of anything you dont take 5 hours to do, and a hate of n00bs. This is why they don't like AlamDV as well.

Even if you get the same results too. o_0

IN dv3 you will have freedom and complete creativity, maybe they will appreciate that.

Nah, they'd rather spend 3 hours on a muzzle flash in 3ds max

With all this talk about making a clapboard in a 3D program... I HAD to try my hand at it (of course in my 3D program of choice - Lightwave!)
Everything was made from scratch... Check it out... it came out pretty well... I animated the scene, but didn't render it out... I can tonight if anyone wants to see it...

But you see, I'm a young'n, and i really dont know how to make 3D models in anything but the POS Powerpoint. But i will definitley want to learn Blender. I really want to learn 3D.

Actually doing it in a 3D app would probably be easier than in Powerpoint

Haha yeah i bet. but yuo have to learn the software first.

3d is daunting at first and using blender as your first 3dapp will probably make you madder, a good starter prog is something called anim8or google it and its free and taught my the basics of 3d.

Ok, I'll let it render overnight and I'll upload it in the morning
Here's a 720x486 still at least so you can see it...http://www.geeksgonebad.com/images/mgwclapboard.jpg

Hey can Jamie, can you make me one too?
Here's the info if it's yes:
The Friendship instead of Geeks Gone Bad
Atomic Productions as Prod. Co.
Brian Hunt as Director
Ben Adams as Camerman
Anything is good! Thanks in advance!

Yeah, no sweat Ben... Do you want anything different about the animation? You don't want the same exact movie as MGW do you?
and Mgw... The full DV movie is 246MB
So do you have a compression of preference?
or do you want the full quality? (probably take hours to download from my server, it's a little slow maybe)
Same question goes to you Ben... Do you want it compressedHere's your still

can you use whatever compression you used for the original one you did please.
P.S The still looks great thanks

Hey Jamie that's awesome! I'm still trying to learn Blender but it takes 5 minutes just to get it unfrozen once I open it, e.g. it's running REALLY slow. Um, about that animation, that's cool, but could you make it swoop off of the screen at the end, after showing the clapboard? Also, I have DSL, but I don't want the uncompressed version. Whatever compression is best quality and a reasonable size is fine - I don't really have any preference. Also, is there any way you can mak the date 1/5/2005?
Thanks for everything and thanks in advance yet again!

I was just given a full copy of Lightwave 3D 8.0 (the new one). I know nothing about 3D but want to get into it. Do you know where I can get some good beginners tutorials?

Rhino 3D is a good program too
Easest of the lot to use I've found
That "if I do it by hand, it's better" thing really bugs me.. Sure it gives you a sense of "i've done that
".. But its not worth

Now i am using Wings 3D. It is extremley easy. I love it. You can export the 3d objects and put them in C4D or something to render, because i find wings a specifically Modeling program.
