Slightly exaggerated title, I know.
This week's challenge was an idea that I had already had floating around, having recently watched some excellent tutorials from videocopilot.net and read the bounce tumble and splash book.
Several others confirmed that this was a good idea. I suppose now is a good time to announce that participants will be modelling, and rendering a special effect.
This effect will be used in a future challenge so make sure it is something you will want to reuse! (of course, the winner will be making a tutorial and .blend available for those not wishing to participate this week
Feel free to submit a still or animated movie (make sure it isn't too large - some of our members are still using dial-up) and the winners will be judged on Sunday the 28th of September.
--Maximum length of time for animations is 20 seconds
--other objects in the scene are allowed, but not recommended for reasons to be disclosed post-competition
--remember - you're not limited to just environmental sfx - you could make a magical force field for a game animation, a rift in the space-time continuum, or anything else which could be part of another composition
...that was a hint
Good luck and have fun!
