Over the summer i’ve been thinking of company names for the Final Year, weither I go freelance or be part of a team. I’ve thought of many names but I was always stuck on the second part of the name. I couldn’t decide what to call it. I had in mind to use “Compositor” or “Composits”. After a talk with Mike, he subjected that I use “Post Production” rather than “Compositor”. Solely because a Compositor only does one thing, where as Post Production does it all. So I decided on the “Post Production” as the second title.
The main name I was going back and forth with different names, I could not figure it out. But i decided on the name “Phoenix”.
The reason the name “Phoenix” is because in Post Production, you take something and make it in to something beautiful. The shot gets a new lease of life. It gets Reborn from the ashes so to speak. So from now on its
Phoenix Post Production
Following the release of The Amazing Spiderman release in cinema. The videos in the links show the time and effort taken when creating the Lizard and Spiderman
Testing a simple tracking shot with 2 different assets. One a train Ben made, the other is a simple nparticle system.
Changing the plan a little bit to make it better. Instead of a ball of liquid metal. I decided to make the metal flow in to my scene. Next up is to draw up some simple storyboards to I can get on with it. Not long left. Thankfully I asked Lauren if I could use her footage..
Another Test in Maya using nCloth. This time I got some awesome results. Because it was a ball, it was filled with Air. so when the it was collided with another object, it burst like a balloon.
I made a quick walkthrough on how I made the tear in the cloth. Quick and simple with no talking.. Enjoy
Testing out nCloth I didnt put a tearable surface in. This was just a test to see how the nCloth would react without tearing. Some good results.
