wass up guys. im working on a tv film project 75 mins 2d/Flash. there are some shots we wish to do which we would prefer to be more dynamic than they are at present. However most of the team is fully 2d trained, ergo going to find a 3d band to create CG elements is difficult.
most of the elements we will be using CG for will be props and buildings, which will contribute to certain set pieces.
I am wondering what the drawback is of using elements from sketch up and then texturing them in Pshop as per our 2D look and feel and then taking them to max to create the sets, animate and render.
am i thinking correctly?
one of the things i have not checked yet is if the elements from sketch up are licensed for this kind of thing. or perhaps we could buy some elements.
