Week 1 – Scene Set Up

While setting up the scene, I realize that I like the camera motion from the Star Wars clip a lot. Additionally, the spaceship model I found last week is too low poly. Therefore, I decided to change from spaceship to a desert hover bike from Sketchfeb.

This work is based on “Sci-fi Hover Bike 04” (https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/sci-fi-hover-bike-04-a326ca10a01b4cb29a357eb23e5f6e01) by taktelon (https://sketchfab.com/taktelon) licensed under CC-BY-4.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)

And the biker is from Mixamo. I re-rigged it in Houdini because the rig come with the model is not very good.

I still need to work on adding more things into the scene and adjust the motion of the bike more, but here is a quick pre-vis.
