    I use Maya. Often, I just watch other people use it. Started with 3D Studio v1, SoftImage, and currently Maya.

    watch My Animation Reels

    I love RH's films and also met him on several occasions. I supervised one sequence which was an homage to Ray's legacy, so I appreciate seeing you doing the same. :thumbsup: - Thomas

    Exactly. I wrote my short around the locations thats that I secured (for free). Same goes for VFX.

    Question About Particle VFX

    In the right hands, your desired effect is quite possible. But, I think you might be going about this the wrong way. When working on a limited production budget, you've got to work with the tools you have on hand. When writing locations, it's a good practice to find & secure a location, and...

What you need to account for in your bid is: - Operating costs - all of them (be honest with yourself) - Your profit/income - Complexity of the job relative to your previous projects - Client changes (and there will be many) - Your experience/resume...

    misc Cost of 3D PreViz
