Halloween Contest 2013 - Now Accepting Submissions!
As the Summer season nears its end and the cool breezes of fall start to creep in - it can mean only one thing...Renderosity's annual Halloween Creative Contest has arrived! It's time to put on your artistic thinking caps and begin thinking of your entry that will become the envy of all your peers here at Renderosity.
This year's theme is: Things I've learned from watching horror movies.
I'm not sure about you but here's a few things I've learned from staying up late and watching scary movies. If you think the bad guy is dead - don't take the time to stick around and check for a pulse. Chances are they're still alive! If you're driving down a dark and desolate road - think twice about picking up the hitchhiker. While watching late night television - don't reach out to touch it should it start calling your name and by all means if your little brother says 'I see dead people' BELIEVE him!

Welcome Foolish Mortals! I look forward to a healthy competition for what I like to call, "Halloween - My Favorite Holiday Of The Year!" I wish everyone the best of luck with their entries! Can you wish good luck on yourself? Hmmmm...Well gonna do it anyway! /"""/ Bite Me! :>)
I have a 1080HD/ 3D animation of a Wizards castle. which I have just finished on Sept 12th . But its 1080DPI - 13 minute animation short which means its Hi def. 1920 x1080 which does not fit your guide lines of a animation of 800 x800 I don't know anyone that creates 800 x 800 video animation. Plus there is no where to upload video on renderosity anonymously for animated films unless you post them on video sharing sites like youtube and my Youtube channel is my name, which would disqualify me again. from the animation rules .of no names on the art work so I think this year i guess I'll have to submit my 3d animation to another contest unless You guys at rendo can fix the rules on animation submissions because the rules are unrealistic for any good animation.to submitted. okay that is my 2 cents :) good luck everyone
i have to second poisinivy's comment ... the size restrictions on the animations make them practically useless i did an animation for the may competition and squishing it into 800x800 and 10mb was a major constraint if you really want an animation competition you have to allow for at least 720p (1280x720) and something like 100mb odds are you won't get too many animations anyways so it shouldn't be an issue to provide the disk space ... it's cheap anyways these days or maybe we can upload our animations to a server (youtube) and just provide a link ?
ya 800x800 seems a rather odd choice for animation. Even 720 by 540 is at least a more normal video ratio, it's a lower res too but tends to ply well on most video devices. Or perhaps 960 by 720 which is just a slightly higher pixel count and still a fairly common video ratio. OK My 2.5 cents worth (gotta allow for inflation) :-)
@Sea80 - Click on the category above that you want to enter, then scroll all... the way... down... The entry form is there. @mapps while 800x800 seems to small for animation, 800x800 is the maximum allowed, not the required size. You can still do 720x540 as an entry.
Complain complain complain... blah blah blah...Every complaint will be met with, "Now that's the Challenge You See!" make it 800x800...or make it 800x450 or make it 640x360 or even a 720x540...You can even do a 799x799....now that's a challenge right?! ugh This is a contest, not an election for Prom Queen, lol Have fun, I do, always! Shift, change, adjust...then submit! I'm just sayin....Good Luck Ev1
I think we are all aware this is not an election for prom queen, but at the same time, a comment section is provided for us. If someone expresses their opinion, it should be welcomed, not belittled. I even support your right to express your opinion. As for my opinion, I think 800x800 is too small for both animations and still images. Too much detail is lost at that resolution.
