I used Maya to create the planes and the water effect.

Abed, it is great to see your talent back on the forum. It has been far too long. You've always been one of my favorites.

Some lovely renders, though I personally find the water and glass stuff distracting, and prefer the ones focussed on the watch more :)

Cheers!

They are all stunning!  I don't mind the glass and stuff at all- it's very creative.  I do have a question, though.  Knowing how the dial is mapped, how did you get those concentric rings?  I presume it's a texture image with bump?  Very effective.

Yes it is Bill. I used the front shot to get the perfect UV map, then I created a normal map in Photoshop.

That's what I figured, and it's the best use of a normal map I've yet seen.  Thanks for sharing!

Below is the watch animation video link. It wasn't easy for me since I always use Maya in my animations. I hope you like it.

I'd love to see the last render without the glass, as the lighting looks lovely on it. The animation looks excellent, though a little long. I reckon 1m 30s would be an optimum duration IMO.

Cheers!

Thanks for the comments CAClark!

Maybe a couple of renders without the shattered glass will make you happy :)

Abed - Your video is very professional.  That took some time and it's well done.

What video editing / FX software do you use?

"Ed, I usually use After Effects..:

Thanks.  That is what I use as well. 

I guess I have a lot more learning and practice ahead of me :)   Thanks again for showing what is possible.

Well, it's Saturday morning here in California, and I'm just catching up with the many posts after a much needed vacation.

I just watched your first animation video.

I'm simply stunned!  Abed, your elegant vision and mastery is not only an inspiration, but a very high marker for us all to attempt to reach, each in our own way.

Thank you so much, and I look forward to seeing you on the winner's podium, right in the center!

WOW. How did you do the lighting effects (rays of light coming off of the watch)? Is this something done in AE?
