Multi-Con VR: Characters in Animation!

#9

Are these prizes in US dollars? US$10,000 for first place? That’s extremely generous. Or is it 10,000 HFC (=US$100)? You really do need to specify the currency for us non-Americans :wink:

  • all cash prizes to be paid in HFC - It will be paid the equivalent amount.

Couple of quick followup questions:

  • When it says “All work must be original”, does that mean that avatars must be created from scratch or is it okay to start with a Fuse avatar and modify from there?
  • Are wearables allowed, or must everything be part of the base avatar?
  • In addition to being able to use the flow scripts, are other scripts allowed that might be used to enhance the appearance when presented on the runway?

It is okay to start with a Mixamo base avatar.

You can use wearables, but the poly limit includes wearables – so the whole thing has to be 25k or less.

Any other scripts would need to be considered individually and we’d need more detail. Please do apply so we can discuss. Two things, however: You can’t use particle scripts or expensive shader effects.*

*Edit for clarity: any shader effects won’t be accepted. Please use regular textures.

Apologies for lack of clarity – no shader effects will be accepted. Please use regular textures. :slight_smile:
