First Sigma Cinematic Complete

posted on May 2nd, 2011, 2:17 am
After about 3 months I manged to finish up the first rendered cinematic in Sigma:

Here we are introduced to the Sov character known as Broker.
The scene was made, animated, and rendered in Maya 2011. Took about 3 months and is approximately 4000 frames (24 fps). I now understand why companies hire large teams to make cinematics...

Impressive visuals indeed, however it's hard to get an idea of what's happening in the cinematic. I know Sigma is a large structure (mobile or not I don't know), so Broker could be trapped there and collapse in the end.

What's going on?  :sweatdrop:

To sum it up one of Broker's drones was damaged beyond repair, and she gets upset over it at the end.  :sweatdrop:

It looks really great but I don't understand it

Awesome work.  I know personally how hard it is to animate in Maya.  Did you use bones for the animation?

Maybe you could hire some artists from TUNisia on the cheap. :D

You've got incredible vision, man.  Well done. :thumbsup:

Hopefully it will make more sense in context of the mod. This particular segment does not take place until well into it so I guess it makes little sense even if one knows background on the character.

I make my rigs in Maya, though I think they are called joints in Maya and bones in 3DS. This particular model has both IK and FK settings though I prefer to use just IK in my models.

I always wondered why game companies spent so much money to have huge ginormous teams work on just the cinematics... now I know after these past three months  :sweatdrop:. I'd love to be able to just hire people that could do all the cinematics and other things while I just work on all the technical aspects, I'm just not sure where to find them or the money to pay them. Maybe one day though...

How long did it take you to render?
