For the most part the videos were used as intro’s and outro’s to each of the sections, and all was going pretty smoothly, but then we hit the task of having to create a 360 fly-through. The usual approach we use for 360’s didn’t really work so I had to try a bunch of different things. Here is a quick run-through of what I tried.
In my previous post I explained how I generated the sequences used in the Lynx Fastlife app – which you can read about here. Now I’m gonna run through how I did the overlays and data insertion for the app – the part that I think is the really cool part.
Its one of the biggest and most complex projects I have had to work on in a long time and I thought it was worth going through some of the key elements explain how we got it done.
The Lynx Fast Life campaign I worked on at Visual Jazz had a design style that was just screaming for more than just the usual blurs and fades you usually use on a flash website. Something that looked more like After Effects then flash.
After a bit of messing around with prototypes I finally came up with something I thought looked pretty cool and it ended up getting used throughout the entire site.
Here is a quick summary of some of the techniques I used when building this game.
The rest was a combination of some basic 3D and a few little tricks. To find out more, read on
Whith a very unique style and heaps of options you are sure to create some very cooky characters.
A few months back, Visual Jazz (the place I work) was building a new site for Visy called Visy Enviromaniacs. The purpose of the site was to help educate children about the environment, teaching them about recycling, saving energy, etc.
To help make the learning for fun and keep the kids interested, a major section of the site was a series of mini games with a planet saving theme. It was my job to build those games… I love my job
Visual Jazz was rebuilding the entire Baker’s Delight website, and as a bit of a side project we were given the task of building a virtual bakery in Flash. The bakery was to be a high gloss virtual representation of one of their stores, allowing visitors to browse through a sample selection of their products.
It was a simple project with a pretty cool looking result. Read on to find out some of the features, and then check it out at http://www.bakersdelight.com.au/virtual.html.
Working at Visual Jazz does expose me to some interesting scenarios/ I mean, playing with dolls for a couple of weeks isn’t my usual idea of a good time, but this funky little microsite had some pretty cool features that had my brain ticking over the whole time.
Some interesting 3D modelling and animation coupled with my first attempt augmented reality in flash made for some puzzling times. Drench all that in a healthy dose of girly-ness and you get www.livinmyworld.com.au.
