The original idea was that the "worms" were attacking the "robin", so I gave them all various Lego weapons. Lightsabers, blasters, pistols, spears. But it didn't show up very well on camera, so that idea may have been lost. Then the following plot point was that the "robin" was bombing the attacking worms with eggs. Confused


I see it now. Just a thought: would those things show up better with a white garbage bag background? If it did come out you could reshoot just those sequences and put them in. You could just drop the eggs yourself (2 brown 1 white egg for continuity). Looking through it seems you cut everything so there would be no continuity issues with the different bag color replacing the original shots on a black bag (the bad doesn't seem to be visible in any of the shots with your bird). A little clever folding of the bag and you should be able to cover up the Lego figures so their body color won't matter (if that doesn't work just tear off a little bit of another white bag and cover the figure over).

Hmm...that's not a bad idea, Salaris. And actually, far as the Lego items were concerned, I just stole the arms from all the Lego guys and stuck them in the gummy worms (since they seemed to stick pretty well), and voila! The worms were holding weapons. Razz

The other idea I'm toying with is writing a quick program that utilizes a robin, an egg, and a worm. Since I am a Computer Science major, and my teacher did tell us to use whatever we were most comfortable with. It doesn't have to be a video, to clarify. So...we'll see. I still have one more day to decide. Smile

If you know you can create a program in the time you have left that will leave you more satisfied that its what you want and your best effort then go with that. I think though that you've got a good video as is, a few minutes of reshooting the worms on a white background and you've got an excellent video (didn't know gummy worms were that sticky, of course I haven't eaten them in years).

Make sure though that if you do scrap the original video it wasn't because you had accidentally slipped into second guessing your professor (especially one that likes copouts/suck ups. At least the one's I've dealt with seem to be most capable of making you unconsciously start second guessing).

Shocked Interesting.

Waste of good eggs though. Razz

Great stuff, I think the tracks and the hyperspace ones really grabbed me. Movement is so tricky to convey, but you nailed it.

Thanks, Ironside! I really appreciate the feedback. Smile

So this isn't necessarily artwork, it's actually a little program I've just put together. If anyone knows what OpenGL is, that's how this was created. This is probably one of the most basic things you can do with it, but to me it is currently fascinating. I am self-teaching myself over the summer, since I'll probably be utilizing this next semester.

Anyway, I must always include whatever Star Wars aspects I possibly can within my programs, and I lovingly call the following project the Star Wars Cube. Very Happy

Star Wars Cube

Oops. This new post slipped by me for some reason. However, I wanted to say that looks sweet! Nice, Mara!
