15 Oct Project Train
This was our first real 3D modeling assignment. With minimal instructions about modeling or Maya we had to create a train and environment to make a short animation to present it.
I started with the ambitious idea to have the train crash into an ocean, wanting to focus on Houdini fluids. But eventually I didn’t have time for that. I ended up with a train that just rushes over an ocean. I modeled and shaded in Maya, created the ocean in Houdini and composited in Nuke.
