    Yes, a contest would be good to get some material going for Siggraph. Having almost 8 months would be enough time to get some great things accomplished.

    Maybe we can as a community just acknowledge that we should all work on something kick-*** to present to Newtek when they come calling.

    I'm all for a new contest, especially one that starts early. I also think it would be a great thing to just have a big showcase of current Lightwave work, a giant compilation for tradeshows and promotion. We should start filoling up the wip and finished work galleries with our good stuff.

    you guys are so funny! They will wait to the last second for NAB and just use the Siggraph WIP's instead, HaHa!
    And then use the finished projects later.


    seriously I like the sentiment, but at least get NAB first before Siggraph, unless of course; Newtek is not going to NAB?
    Woo Woo, back on the Turnip Truck!!

    Could I enter my 70's supercars flick, or would it be something started after the contest announcement?

    Absolutely, that's a great bit of work that!

    I think the general message is, if you have something you think is worthwhile showing, finish it off, or work it up to a new level. Or create something cool and new, doesn't even have to be long, as most longer pieces end up being clips anyway. So you could just work on a load of cool clips! Save some time!

    1280x720 @ 24fps. What other possible format would be in the running?

    Dunno Mike. Thatīs what I used at home, but now that I work at the studio everything at 1920x1080, Iīm starting to lean in that direction...a tad too big for the Internet though...

    ...we could also render at 1280x720 and inflate the darn thing like the Galactica guys (and so many others) xD
    3d animation? Hah! Did you take a look through your window?thereīs plenty of it...and pre-rendered!!

    Exactly. [email protected] is perfect. You can uprez to 1080 and even show it on film and its looks fine. For jobs at 1080 we usually render at 85% of that anyway as the footage we're working to is a little soft anyway.

    I'm good with 720p, although most of my projects are still SD.

    720 I think would be better, many don't have render farms to render long animations at 1280!

    For the video reel last year, was there a topic? or were they just taking any animation that people had?
