Never got passed the Sun and Mercury :mrgreen: . Short but had allot of fun with endeavor. Render time was around 10 minutes or so then used Magix Movie Edit Pro to make video. All trueSpace 7.61 and should be best in 720p full screen on YouTube.

I'll ask for a little extension of this contest with all my humility and sincerity...
I start the work appx in 04/01... but I had the idea much earlier (isn't a original idea...) anyway this contest had 2 months already but I can say that for it had just 17 days. Reasons:
Holidays (took all December)
Commemorations of new year (took first few days)
Disease/flu (Took around 7 days of healing and recovering)
Convalescence (Took around 3 days after the disease, it's for me don't get sick again, so I don't effort myself physically and mentally, it means TV all day)

Now what I did:
First days (Researching for informations)
Starting (Medium speed, started the orion module, what was a mistake since it's for the final scenes)
Entering Nasa Forum (Posting and getting replies)
Getting harder, much harder than I can (Working appx 8 hours per day I get possessed by the animation, I was liking but just doing it...)
After sick recovering (Tried to put everything in the axes but since I worked for 8 hours for a week I was wanting more leisure)
Finishing (All models are ready, some aren't with the quality I want ( Due to the lack of time I did all rapidly)
Animation (Search about primal particles and start learning about the animation key frames)

This is my first animation, I did some things before but didn't earn any experience because were silly things.
I'm facing problems on the smoke creation but I think that I can solve that rapidly.

So if you can/want please extend it for more 5 days.

I could say just 2 days but then I would work like crazy and even don't reach it, and even for 5 days I can't promise anything... but here is my schedule and I tried to make things realistic, so I can do those things in a day.
1. Prepare the smoke animation
2. Camera Moves
3. Objects Moves
4. Render test (Draft anti-aliasing and in low quality, I just want to see the frames)/If something lack, more objects moves or camera moves
5. Rendering all day and all night (High quality 450x450, anti-aliasing at 3x, will try with 2 lights and in the max with 4) to then in day 6 I can post the anim and you do the poll.

Another alternative is that in the future in animations about space or free subjects I can post my animation...
You don't need to do that, I can do fine finishing it just for nothing but I would like.

Best luck for all (In case of tomorrows poll)

Wow, signs of dedication and drive! Yes doing animations can get really complicated real fast. I spen most of my time with shader work and never got to the rest :). Well if you get a reprive then I will be able to upgrade mine as well, will do so anyways so a slight delay is ok or not with me.

Ok, ok,

the february is just a short month so that i would say i give you (and all others) time until feb. 15. This should be enough. After that the poll will run until feb 18. and the new contest starts on feb. 19. until end of march (enough time for the next one).

So, good luck :)

DD, you should say that there will be no more extensions after the 15th. I think that is part of what you were saying above but it should be very very clear that no more extensions will be made.
That stinks. I feel for you. Nature doesn't.

DD,
I think what you are doing by extending the contest is very kind hearted and I have been looking forward to seeing Leon's work.
Who knows maybe I will whip up another one for the fun of it.
