Anoopfx: Embergen Challenge

Hi there,
I am an Houdini/Maya Fx artist, I see this challenge as an opportunity for me to learn and explore EmberGen and implement it on Unreal.
Soon I will be posting my idea/theme for this challenge.
So the first step for me is to start… learning unreal. wish me luck.

Here we go, here is plan mostly inspired from movies like pearl harbor/Battleships but with twist… :wink:

  1. We see battle ship turret aiming a target. and firing at it.
  2. POV from target plane, avoiding the explosion.
  3. Surprise attack from Behind on Battleship
  4. Camera pulls out to reveal a big explosion happening…

this must be cut down to only turret firing… just got 120 frames. Don’t have room for ship explosion…
hopefully tomorrow , I can post some blocking pass… Hunt for the ship model is going on…
Any recommendations to download 3dmodels?..

here is the blocking pass, managed to fetch a ship and turret model from sketchfab. This animated in houdini, but my goal is get this into unreal, shade it and animate it too…

Here’s a quick reminder that this Challenge closes this evening! Don’t forget to submit your final video to JangaFX using this Form if you’ve yet!
