Well, other than being a post attachment entry,
it’s literally about my attachment at VHQ POST.
The Industrial Attachment Programme is over and I have learnt a great deal. This entry can help me summarize it all.
Firstly, I will like to thank everybody at VHQ Post. Especially the people from the 3D Department, I seriously hope I had more time and chances to work with them.
I have improved a lot in the technical aspect of course, for example, Diana taught me some tips and tricks to “transfer” the animation of a geometry on a higher res geometry which can be useful in terms of doing cloth simulations in low res and then up res later. I have been using MEL in bits and pieces to do great 3D in Maya, we have a few lecturers in SIDM who are really capable of using the language. Back at VHQ, we have Ashish our technical director who seemingly uses his keyboard more than his mouse in maya! Ok, it’s an exaggertation but it’s true to an extent, even his animation is scripted! I also did some serious lighting and rendering. OVerall, my productivity in 3D has definately gone up.
There are many departments at VHQ, hence I will walk around to see how a productions actually works and get together. Out of curiousity, I kept asking questions to find out how their pipeline works in order to deliver great results within schedule. Definately, it required good planning to achieve that, hence they have a robust team of producers who fight for time and quality at the same time, such that every process in the production is given adequate time to complete.
To me, it was such a great experience working at VHQ Post. Now, I am applying what I have learnt to my Final Year Project! :)
