A quick test shot to test modeling. Thought of something funny to do so I thought I would share. As always, any comments would be appreciated.

Excellent attempt. BUT... its amazing how the explosion turned that car into a hatchback!!

Just pulling your leg. Wonderful job and very funny.

I am curious as to how you did it.

Thankx!

What I did was:

1. Got the closest model to my red Honda Civic.
(The model is actually of a porche which goes to show it only has to be sort of close!)
2. Took a shot with the real car
3. Took a shot with no car
4. I then did http://www.nccinema.ch/esfx12.html
5. I added the tire seprately with the same method.
6. Add in the cool new explosions and a quick clip.

It was a real quick test but it enabled me to see alot of what I can do now.

I can't wait till I can start filming my new movie.

I've tried several times and I can't download your movie at all. I only get about 72k of it.

I'm not too keen on the front wheel. It doesn't seem to scale properly as it flies toward us. That tiny detail spoiled it for me.
The idea made me laugh though - so I guess the effects do their job.

It actually scales properly I think but it doesn't obey the laws of gravity! razz

After it was done I did realize it actually heads down then up for a second. I would definatley try to improve this next time. They say this is a hard part of modeling, getting your models to move realistically!

Thankx for the feedback.

Yeah, that's it - the movement.
I only mention it 'cos the wheel distracted me the first time I saw it.
The fact that its a completely different model of car totally passed me by; so that aspect was very slick!
