Nice take on the Phillips TV piece. I wondered when everyone was going to copy that.

Pretty cool.

So, are all the 3D elements Lightwave? Glass shards, utensils etc.

Yes, the 2-minute opener for CSI Season 10 is all LightWave and compositing/tracking, by Zoic.

Yes. The original link had the entire episode and that's why it's not available out of the US. But it's basically what was in that YouTube link. :)

Well, not really since that's out of sequence and doesn't really get across the quality of two minutes of non-stop still-frame action ;)

Thanks for the link William. I didn't realize CBS put the entire show on their site. Which is a good thing. Anyway, glad to see you around again, its been too long.

You can tell it's all Lightwave, the fire effects are terrible :p

Apart from that, it looks fantastic, really excellent work.

Fantastic.

Mind you, I've never held a handgun in my life, or seen one go off, perhaps the US audiences are the best judges ;)

[QUOTE=biliousfrog;931310]You can tell it's all Lightwave, the fire effects are terrible :p

Why would you blame it on Lightwave? I've seen excellent fire and explosions come out of Lightwave.

Just off the top of my head:

In daylight you normally do not see any flash. But in video it makes for a great visual effect to let the viewer know which gun was fired.

In the dark it may be different, but I have never fired a gun in the dark or one that is an automatic{A gun that repeatedly fires without user intervention between rounds(anybody that needs a better definition can google it:hey:)}. But generally the gun fires too fast for the eye to see the flash from the barrel. The size of the ammunition can play a role in how much of a flash would be visible if it was captured on video and played in slow motion. The length of the barrel should also play a role and can only shoot rifles as pistols require an additional license in the USA.

You can always look straight to the barrel and shoot to check :D

Correction, pistols require permits in certain States in the US. There are states that do not require anything additional.

Hmm..Maybe i was right the first time, seams to me I recall something about getting federal approval to make sure you are not a criminal. I guess it would help if I knew more about it:D

If you want to nitpick, notice how the trigger on the gun at the end does not appear to be depressed, despite supposedly being mere milliseconds after firing.

Cool shots, too bad the tracking on the last 2 fly throughs are rather mediocre.

As for further nittpicking, when a bullet has traveled that far from the barrel as seen in the shots, most trace elements and smoke are gone already.

But, for shots for a series quite an achievement.

(fire/explosions should always be comped video imo, some disagree)

I was gonna say... the blatant concept 'borrow' from Adam Berg's "Carousel" should be acknowledged.

any handgun that i have ever purchased had to first be registered and i always had a background check run on me during that process. i am allowed to own the firearm without a permit. the permit comes into play with concealed carrying and that is a state level thing. for example, my concealed carry permit from PA is not valid in OH, but is valid in some other states. thats how it has worked at least in all the states i have lived in :thumbsup:

that wire removal and marker was erased "...in less than 15 seconds"
was that for real, or was that a test?

Thats what I thought. Here in NY I know we need a permit to carry. I have been told other states don't require it. But I think I was getting the federal check mixed up with the permits.

It's a made up interface (but it lends a lot from the Flame/Inferno)

Just check FXGuide TV for the interviews, episode 57.
