I want the anim to start behind the tree (full bloom its summer lol) zoomed out in sunset, then as it zooms in turn around the tree to see it laughing then the name appears along the bottom fading in random letters one at a time

Hope this helps smile

Ok, i got this 3d tree off turbosquid for free but it needs some texture on the actual tree. I'm not into 3d max enough yet to be able to do this so if anyone would be kind enough to finish texturing this tree for me it would be really appreciated, I'm looking for it to look look quite chuncky and old smile Also if the trunk can be made thicker that would help a little too biggrin Once this is done I can work my magic wink

I love how chromanating works as a real word and how you used it. That's what I call implementation.

I'm not sure how to do that, do ya mean film someone laughing then impose it over the top? I think it would be better if it could be done with the 3D program with the tree texture. Could you possibly do a happy laugh bit like santa, likeable etc and one with a bunny jumping round the base of the tree then the tree sucks it up and has an evil laughing face? would that be too hard to do?

Hope this helps crazy

I'd suggest keeping is short, simple and to the point. You don't want it to be distracting or cheesy.

lol i think the bunny thing is a bit too much, i can do the happy tree to evil tree thing though if thats the type of thing you want. I'll find something myself in regards to the laugh then also.

LOL yeah scrap the bunny it looked good in my head crazy I think maybe just the happy tree with a nice surrounding but if you can do 2 anims one happy and one evil that'd be great nutty, thanks again for giving it a go

Hey, finished a first draft, as you need it by wednesday then i'll give you this now, you'll have to pm me ur address because the full quality version is 700Mb so ill have to send it on CD.

This is basically good tree into bad tree, I'll do you a good and bad seperate as well but i wont get chance before wednesday so i hope you're happy with this.

I'm no 3d pro or anything so i hope its not too tacky, its my first attempt at anything like this!

The file is AVI, due to this being my first project i havent got any compressors or anything so if anyone can point me in the right direction as to where i can get the tools to turn this into quicktime also that would be great! (or someone can do that for me also!). Same excuse for the file size, but the quality is good imo.

http://www.nuthead-productions.com/movies/laughing-tree-intro.avi

Cheers.


Edit: Oh yeh i'll get you a widescreen version done in the next few days also, like i said to you earlier, I'd already done most of this as it is sorry bout that!

Edit 2: Oh yeh, hope the music and sounds arent too cheesy either :p Easy to replace though if you have others.

You should be able to send him the full file over www.yousendit.com

It lets you e-mail up to 1GB. That should save you a CD...


BTW - that looks pretty cool. Good job!

Nice. If I'm honest though I think it would have worked just as well if you took it straight from the change to black and white.
