This project was my final project for my 3DS Max course. I was trying to make a animation similar to those Animusic ones that you may have seen before. It turned out a bit darker than I expected because of the school monitors but I’m still really happy with it.

The music used for this project was named “Snowbound” and was created by :iconthecomet:. If you would like to find more of his music try looking him up on Newgrounds.

As always comments are welcomed and appreciated.

(Note: If this is not playing I am working on it.)

I like it, I feel the timing on some objects is a wee bit off. But overall it's very kool! And I enjoyed the tunes =)

This looks great, but I have one little bit of critical commentary to offer:

You see those four colored vents that play only four notes? The orange and red ones seem flopped. The orange one (which is shorter and further to the left) plays a lower pitch than the red one, when it should be of the higher pitch. Meanwhile, the red one (which is the tallest and furthest to the right) should be playing the lowest notes. Is it possible to change that?

Secondly, I like how the icicles fall to make the "snare drum"-ish sound, and how there's just enough of them to fill the measures they're played in.

Next, I noticed the other parts of the "drumset". The little mushroom acts as a hi-hat cymbal, and the things falling on the log make the bass drum sound. Are those rocks or chunks of mud?

Lastly, that first fountain thing - is that supposed to look like a guitar? 'Cuz it sounds like regular synthesized strings.

Anyway, great job on the animation.

Yay, Criticism! =D

I’m a bit confused by your comment about the vents to tell which is which I’ll just number them from left to right as “1 2 3 4” I cant make sheet music for to my knowledge in word or something but the following is how I thought the notes sounded in playing order, but I could be wrong.
------1----------
--------------2--
--3--------------
----------4------
I still think it is right but maybe I should ask :iconthecomet: to check.

On another subject thanks I really like the icicles myself. They are actually one of the things that I am happiest about how they rendered in this project. And one of the things my teacher thought were excellent texturewise.

As for the “other parts of the "drum set"” as you put it. They are supposed to be rocks but if you think they look more like chunks of mud to you it really doesn’t matter.

Well the fountain feature isn’t supposed to look like a guitar and I just don’t see how you got that from it. I know it is just synthesizer and the fountain was just the best thing I could think of to represent it.

Thanks for the comments/ criticism. I always appreciate that sort of thing and thanks for the :+fav: as well. =D

It's just that "vent 4" sounds like it's of a higher pitch than "vent 3" to me. In fact, I just now checked it on a piano. The notes, in this order, are: C - G - Eb - F
1. C (orange, 3rd from left, lowest)
2. G (green, 1st from left, smallest and highest [pitch])
3. E flat (red, furthest right, largest, and tallest [height])
4. F (yellow, 2nd from left)

If you are able to, I'd say change the playing order (without changing the music) to red-green-orange-yellow. Currently, the playing order is orange-green-red-yellow.

Well, I would change it but that is a lot more work than I would like to do on this. It’s not just changing then animation: timing, position, and sequence but also I kind of like the current sequencing visually anyways.

Thanks though, for the susgestions.

Actually I don’t have a Myspace, Facebook, Live Journal, or even a twitter account (although I have been considering the last two), so I haven’t seen there Myspace.

As for the Animusic DVD’s, although I’ve been tempted to get them every time I see them at Fry’s, I haven’t bought any.

This is really awesome. I never would be able to pull off something like this- I'm way too impatient. It's amazing. I love Animusic stuff, I saw an entire tv channel for them once and it was really cool. The only flaw I can see is that when the water droplets are falling to make that noise (bell?) the first one is off. The sound comes before it hits the rock.

But even with that tiny flaw, this is really good. I love it. ^^

I think I know which one you are talking about and looking at it a bit closer those last few bells do get a bit out of sync. I don’t think I’m going to try and fix it, because it would be a pain at this point, but thanks for pointing it out.

Also thanks for the :+fav: and I’m sure if you have enough time and patience you could make something like this or even better. =D

XD Yeah, it'd be lots of unnecessary trouble to fix it. Just pointing it out, though. ^^; The video is amazing either way, and it's not really noticeable unless you really study it.

XD Nah, I couldn't. I'm not good with timing things and I have a short attention span. :P
