"Symbiote B" animation project showing some of
the effects that have been added. The full project is being developed in 3D Studio Max and utilizes a variety of complex animations and effects. Video Post, animated lasers, atmosphere and environment settings, etc. Most of the UVW mapped texturing is created using the "Cebas Final Render - Final Toon" plug-in. The plasma cloud and vent effects are animated using the "Sitni Sati - After-Burn" plug-in. The final animation sequence includes dozens of animated objects and 70 to 80 different laser and lighting settings. A number of the lighting effects have a rhythmic pulse that work in concert adjusting the subtle lighting and reflection maps casting visual shades throughout the environment.
