A while back i post a video about modeling nature that as made of animated pictures. This time i stepped up the game. With a real animation; water, boats, cars, you name it.
While there are a lot of programs one can use to model environments, Vue and 3Ds Max are the best. Of course Vue takes the first place with its ecosystems, terrains, clouds, etc. one doesn’t need any serious skills(except knowing the tool) to use this phenomenal tool. And 3Ds Max, well, you can do anything with it; provided you know how to use it. Plus, their interoperability is a miracle; so knowing both helps a lot.
In my case, i wanted to use Vue inside 3Ds Max(for easy animation), but either way, they all took forever to render. As a result, i removed all the detailed components such as trees(here i used planes mapped with tree images), 3d clouds, etc. Below is the video, tell me what you think and have fun.
