Old Strata is unskilled to make animation. Strata 3D is traditional software of the still picture. It’s not easy to render scalable move. However, it is considerably interesting to make a short animation. A little dream bring to me a scalable dream. There are an elegance moves though they are so rough resolution. Their concept is quite different from recent animated cartoon software. The image below is a usual still picture. Movie below is an animation ,which was edited by Strata’s extention. It’s fun absolutely.

It gets little by little warm as it rains. The old man said so. Therefore, people always waited eagerly for spring. Gradually various things begin to move in spring. My Shinden also began to move. I’m going to show such a spectacle today. Today’s flight schedule takes off from Saitama, and goes to Mt. Fuji. Shinden with Mt. Fuji is well-matched relations. An engine also has been tamed. let’s take off.

When Shinden tried to take off for the first time in 1945, the propeller struck the ground. The first flight was finished with failure.
Shinden took off safely in my 3D.

A throttle is opened fully with stopping the moment to a transverse direction. After going up to an altitude of 2000m, an air pattern is set to the Sagami bay. It is the flight for about 30 minutes to Mt. Fuji.

Although it is spring, there is still a lot of snow in the mountain in Fuji . Since there was no good photograph of spring, other photograph of winter was used . Even if metaphor spring comes, snow is required for Mt. Fuji. It is disgraceful in Fuji without snow.
I wish I could fly once with making Mt. Fuji into a background. Although it is individual sentimentality, the original scenery of the Japanese heart is felt.
This picture was made into the animation for about 15 seconds. It consists of continuous still pictures of 385 sheets.

As wild as freedom 自由と奔放

Spring Breath

Posted by kikakuya on March 25, 2008

The cherry tree bloomed in Japan this week. A true Spring came on. Let’s offer spring breath to Shinden recovered by 3D. First, I will move his engine. A stretch can be begun from spring vacation. Please expect to confirm how Shinden will develop from now on. The process of work is introduced from next time.

Springlike Best clothes

Posted by kikakuya on February 3, 2008

From the top of the head to a tiptoe, the dispersion ratio and reflectance of a body color were corrected. Since the identification of the Rising-Sun was bad, the mask action at the time of mapping was also readjusted. The recognition for the adjoining color increased. A little bump degree of the rivet was also lowered and they were set in a natural expression. Since this color absorbs light, the lighting from the upper part is added. Environment light is added further. The dark part was also readjustment. Since all portions do not need to be seen, a viewpoint was centralized on a body upper surface. The big thunder cloud of a background has an effect for the concentration of the viewpoint. A setup of this picture is some present-day airfield. The pilot is getting down and the canopy is open. It is very important that you decide the expression environment of the object as a concept of the expression. A story is always necessary for the scene.
Well,what kind of story do you have in this image?

Full Dress in Lunar New Year

Posted by kikakuya on February 3, 2008

Feb.4 is the Lunar New Year in Japan. Many young girls used to wear a holiday clothes “FURISODE” in the New Year of prewar days. FURISODE is a long-sleeved KIMONO for unmarried women. The long-sleeved kimono is worn for New Years holidays(Jan.) now. Full dress for the man was a kimono with a family crest on those days. However,most of men don’t have a custom of wearing full dress.
That’s why I decided to dress up J7W1 Shinden by full dress. A family coat of arms is a rising sun. The color of the kimono is the deep green called “official color” of the Japanese warplane. Result for mapping was too beautiful. Reappearance of this color is very difficult . Balance of Hue ,Chroma and Value is quite hard to decide. Combination data of RGB is R34, G49, and B44. Since this color is fairly deep green, the quality of illumination will come out clearly. It is also important point that green is complementary color for red. This “red” is based on R223G0B36 (CMYK Y100M100). Although the Rising-Sun has shone strangely in documentary photography, it is necessary to also set up the reflectance of each part separately. First of all, which will be a true body color? Even with the plastic model, there are various colors. Since the 8mm movie of the test flight in 1945 was monochrome, there was not how to make a judgment.

The 2nd picture is the result of the rendering by changing the rate of diffusion and the reflectance of the body into a maximum and adding of Ambient (environmental light). Neighboring objects were reflected and the feel of a material increased by them. But,it has become like a plastic model. This is heterogeneous. The lower photographs are gray scale image. As compared with the contrast of the recorded photograph which remains now, the body color also seems to be thinner touch. Information about the body color is more necessary. Let’s look for color data from other examples of a body photograph next time. That is a new subject. Although the undersurface is not classified this time, the mapping of the skirt of holiday clothes seems to become complicated ,too.

Step Completion

Posted by kikakuya on December 14, 2007

mgearkan3.gifFabrication of the main gear was finished. This work is done based on some collected photographs and drawings. Fine wiring and metal fittings are gradually attached by addition. The frame grasping a main wheel is one sleeve type. As long as a photograph is seen, a frame is visible to pipe-like structure (there is a slot which made the pipe unite on appearance). “Path Extrude” is best way for this frame. This method pushes out the form of a pipe section along with the line of sleeve(photograph bottom left). Now, this is attached to the axis of a main wheel. The structure of an axis is the same as a front wheel. However, the hinge of a buffer is attached to a front side. The cover was traced from the body side view. Since the length of an axis and the radius are quite larger than the numerical value of a front wheel, the ratio of each part is re-calculated from data. In order that the upper end and the arm for drawing in of the main leg might not have data, they were surmised that it was probably such a structure theoretically.

stencil.gifbamp2.gifThe Left figure like a “Japanese family crest” is a mapping picture given to the side of a rim. The left picture is mapped in the both-sides side of a rim, and a black portion is made transparent. If this processing is carried out, a window will open to the rim side at the time of a rendering. The direction with right gradation is a mapping picture for giving special effects further on it. A deep-colored place is dented strongly and a thin place is the processing which gives a dent weakly. Although this portion may not be visible,the result in which it is better to be scrupulous is induced.
