I was asked to do a CGI effects shot for a show that involves an animation to show how our Earth and Sun actually move as they orbit the galactic core. This is being done using Unity. I started in Lightwave but found it easier to use Unity. The Earth will circle up and down around the sun with a wobble and trail behind it to show the orbit.
Slowly but surely these video game engines are replacing Lightwave, 3DMax, Maya, and other expensive 3D programs.
Mask orders keep coming in too and our next short film project is proceeding well. We start shooting in June.
