Class Activity: Eye of the Storm
Eye of the Storm 2012 from Patrick Woo on Vimeo.
This is a class exercise conceptualised by Kooi Chek the original instructor for VFX at Cg Protégé and head of FX at Tiny Island Productions. KC has created a complete version for the class.
The purpose of the exercise was to give students an opportunity to apply their knowledge of particle systems, volumetric lighting and rendering techniques, after they learn about Afterburn.
Here I've taken that exercise and redone it with my own look and timing. I've also given it a bit more of a dramatic lighting, including animated lights cast by 'lightning'.
