3D "PRODUCTION LOGO" EXERCISE PART 1
  • In Anim8or, you must design a 3D Logo using extruded text, simple modelling, and intelligent design.
  • Consider how SYMBOLISM can be used to make your design particularly clever.
  • We will be later incorporating ANIMATION into these logos; think of how animation can logically COMPLETE and COMPLEMENT the text of your logo.
The JPG version of your logo should be 800x600 pixels, and is due no later than Feb 23rd, 2007

HINTS
  • Text Based Logo
  • Symbol becomes one of the letters
  • Animation logically creates and complements the text

  • Be sure to demonstrate ALL your acquired skills to date ie. lighting, modelling, materials
  • Consider how ANIMATION can COMPLETE and COMPLEMENT your logo design.
  • Render TWO versions of the AVI - one ALIASED (make note of the rendering times) and one ANTIALIASED
