Sped up video of entire house model build
show user profile  Chris123643
Just for fun, (and maybe for my website) i have recorded me modelling, texturing and post work of a typical house type. I did it to help people who are doing a similar thing to show my workflow. I think it goes way too fast to show any actual methods i use, but hopefully be useful for some people, (it may not be useful in the slightest, but i wanted to have a go at it anyway). The whole thing took me 4 and a half hours. (spread over two days)


Not looking for crits on this one guys, just did it for the vid.

I think that is an awesome video and the time it took you is great. It is always nice to pay your rent with one evening :)
It is interesting to see the workflow other people use.

i was actually quite shocked at the time, only 4 and a half hours! i know im quite quick at it now because i do so many of them. I have never worked on one solidly for 4 and a half hours mind, every little break i was pausing the vid. and obviously doesn't include any of the render times. I've been telling potential employers that something like this generally takes 2 days!

just a note that im not looking for crits on the actual image, but if anyone has any general comments on my workflow, or anything standing out a mile, feel free to comment if you think it will help me out.

Honestly, I don't see what information you actually managed to get across.
I knew exactly how I would do any of those parts, and when you did it I assumed it was something similar.
But if I didn't know how to build that house, I wouldn't see it in the video either.

So in essence, you made a video to show how to build a house only for the people that already knew how to build a house.
Example... making windows. I see a flat surface, then I see holes appearing. I know how you did it, but I didn't find out in the video at all.

What I would do is slow the video back to original or 2x speed at the parts where you were doing something new. Making one windov. Then speed up where you repeat the process

I like the details that you have managed to get in the house. Ofcourse the lighting is spot on.

nice introduction for non-industry people that might inspire some to get involved.

maybe put some suitable classical music behind it to make it a more entertaining watch.

also, adding some video captions would aid understanding.

nice one chris.

sorry guys, i have been on the forums but simply didn’t notice this thread jump back into life. I have bad news though. For some reason i felt it necessary to delete the original video files, i have just had a good look round and can only find my sped up version. I cant remember deleting them, but maybe they were very large files and i felt i had no use for them.

The aim of this wasn’t to give a full video tutorial, just thought as i have a fairly straight forward and simple house to create I’ll recorded the process, speed it up, and maybe put it on my website or something. I think its a great idea to add music. If it was my intention to do a full video tutorial then slowing it down for the important parts and adding captions would be a great idea.

Again sorry for deleting the original normal speed files. I’ll have another look now but it doesn’t look good, I cant even find the program I used to record it, think I deleted that too.
