Visual Effects Best 100 3D Render CG Challenge
Visual effects designer Clinton Jones wanted to see just how talented some of the best 3D artists are. So, he decided to hold a Alternate Realities CG challenge where 2,400-entries were received. No textures were provided, just a simple animated scene of what appears to be someone lugging a heavy object. The results ranged from science fiction-inspired scenes to a bar of soap walking across a bathroom. Read more for videos of the top 100 as well as all 2400 entries.



The five best entries received prizes from major computer hardware companies, but all entrants received a nice showcase in the montages. As you can see, imagination was the only limit as to where the direction of this scene could be taken, including a father trekking with a large teddy bear on his back to otters in a Napoleonic uniform, complete with a cannon.

Over the last month, I challenged 3D artists with the Alternate Realities CG challenge. I provided an animation for everyone to work from, and the results were stunning. 2,400 artists delivered, the top 100 were chosen for this montage, and 5 of them walked away with insane prizes,” said the designer.
