These are all student projects undertaken while studying at 3D College Denmark.
00:00 - Interstellar Spaceship
The spaceship is based on research into what a potential real life interstellar spaceship could look like.It was modeled in Cinema 4D, and shaded/rendered in 3Ds Max with VRay The planet in the background is a 3D model that reacts dynamically to lighting.
I kept a journal about this project on the CGSociety forums: forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=43&t=1349045&page=1
00:21 - Mustang Fastback
Accurate model of a 1965 Mustang Fastback, animated using the plugin Madcar, which creates a rig that can be steered with an Xbox controller. The dust cloud was simulated with different colors and particle systems to show the different layers of sand, dirt and gravel on the ground being kicked up. It was composited in Fusion with a full multi-pass workflow onto a on a matte painted background.
