Week TechVideo, 2008 #13 - 3D LEGO plane animation

In the sequence of a previous post [1], this week just another great raytraced animation. A 3D LEGO TECHNIC Plane, this time.

According to the author (Anthony Young) this animation was modeled with 'Autodesk 3ds Max', rendered with 'Brazil Rendering System' and post produced with 'Adobe After Effects Pro'.
The render time was approximately, 2 minutes per frame on a Pentium 4 2.6.

Although it would be interesting to know, how much time this project took overall, as I imagine there was much more work to do then just individual frames rendering...

great video, hard to decide what is funnier, the lego plane itself or the wunderbar animation of the flaps and engine.

Plucas ;)

Looking forward to see you back, here at TBs.

Almost two days to render, wow!

And yet, this is a small, relatively simple set... I don't want to imagine how long it would take to build, render and animate an 8480!
