This is the first post on THE DIGITAL BOMB!!!!!  Im looking foward to flooding this site with my progress in 3D!

Sooo… my Apache animation midterm project for prof. Alleyene’s 3D class, is finally done and is rendering as i type. Just tried the new “Crafty” plugin that I discovered. The animation is very low level in terms of quality. The focus was more on the modeling instead of the actual animating of the asset.

The Apache was modeled in Modo, animated and rendered in Maya.

What I learned: I learned about more modeling tools and fall offs in Modo. I learned about extremely basic expressions  in Maya for the rotor rotations, and I explored camera attributes in Maya.

Challenges:  I need to work on my shaders, and find a good workflow when it comes to UV mapping, and importing into Maya. Its supposed to be a piece of cake, but iv’e yet to try it since i am pretty new to Maya. I need to also address my rendering. The lighting job is pretty bland, and needs more of a “real World” effect.

Hello world!
