With the release of 0.63.04 we have a new interpolation method, clamped, that we hope will be of good help to animators.
To promote this we are announcing an animation competition.
The topic is “Reach the moon”. Interpret this any way you like.
The focus will be on animation, motion will be considered more important than the rendition in this competition.
The new clamped interpolation has to be a major part of the animation.

The best animation will be picked by a jury and will win the book “The Animators Survival kit” (or another animation book if you already have this one).
The animation can be any length you like, but we encourage you to create something longer than 5 seconds. It can also be anything you like, just as long as it somehow relates to the topic, “reach the moon”.
The jury consists of David Rylander (rylleman), Konstantin Dmitriev (Zelgadis) & Ricardo Graça (ricardograca). Their decision is final.
[size=85](They can not themselves participate in the contest.
If the jury find that not enough submissions have been entered or for some other reason feel they can not choose a winner they can decide to not name a winner.)[/size]
We encourage all participants to share their source files for others to learn from. The winner will have to at least share the source files with the jury.
Deadline for the competition is sunday March 04, 8 p.m. CET. That gives you 3 weeks for your submissions.
