3D model animations

January 14th, 2011

In 2006 I took the 3D modelling course at Utrecht University. As part of this course there were two exercises that involved modelling something, and I noticed I had never posted about these!

Now mind you, I’m not a graphics guy, so don’t expect too much. Also I notice that some of the renders have aliasing and artefacts; I would create new higher-quality renders but I don’t have a copy of Maya anymore. Nevertheless, they don’t look too shabby if I say so myself :).

The first animation is a recreation of my fan:

See this PDF for a nice step-by-step walkthrough, including a photo of the original. Slightly higher quality avi file here. Maya source file here.

The second animation is of a toy train. This one I created together with Bert:

See this PDF for some details about how the animation is made and some screenshots. Slightly higher quality avi file here.
