VEX: Stack Up


Entry ID #: 1598
Created: Sat, Jan 10, 2015 12:29 AM

Stack Up is a game of balance and control. There are not many pieces, but they can be used in many different ways to score points. The movement of the objects is not always predictable so programming must be excellent in order to do well. The odd pieces also create hundreds of ways to move them about the field. Though some aspects of this game are very challenging, we made sure there are ways for both beginner and expert teams to score. Thanks for watching! Livewire1069F

This is probably one of the clearest and easiest to understand animations this year, which is good, but it looks a bit too plain and simple at times, with not much camera motion to place emphasis on different parts of the game, especially at the beginning of the animation. The 3D robots look very realistic considering they were created using Minecraft graphics, and they don't look bad when moving, so it would have been good to see a bit more motion in the animation on the whole. I'm not that familiar with Mine-imator, but the 'blocky' nature of it (even though this is central to Minecraft) does seem to stop the animation look as good as it could. The contrast between this and the bit in the middle of the animation where it looks like you used Autodesk Inventor shows this, so I'd recommend sticking to a consistent style for future animations (i.e. either go for the 'Minecraft' look for the whole animation or use other software for a more professional finish) Good Luck!
