Hello modelers from all around the world!

I came here today to show you my latest sketchUP project. If you ask me I'll say it's a bit weird but yet an ambitious project.

It is an animation based on Roland Emmerich's *INDEPENDENCE DAY* movie from 1996. I know, it already starts to sound weird :)

So far I managed to upload on my YouTube channel the trailer of it which can be seen here: https://youtu.be/yN3IYFCG0Fc

The overall project is like 80% ready. You might wanna ask me about the animation techniques I used in the making of this movie. I used Keyframe Animation from Regular Polygon. It is an awsome, must-have plugin. It's easy to use and the final result is astonishing. But, to my shame, I used the trial version as I couldn't afford to buy it and I had only 10days to finalize the animating sequences. I could do tons of animating sequences but unfortunately I couldn't do more in such a limited time. Anyway I think I've done enough for this time.
Besides the plugin, I used the compositing technique to obtain optimized but yet complex shots. Right now I'm in the middle of editing and when I'm done, I'll post some pictures too.

If you want to know when the movie will be ready, subscrie to my channel to get notified about it.
If this topic is far away from the forum's normal running, please delete it without a trace of doubt.
Thank You!

Hi, I am a fan of your work sir and can't get enough of it! I have shared your video to multiple social media platforms for others to enjoy. It makes my day to see SketchUp being used in fun projects like this one.

Best regards

Hello again!

I'm proud to say that the video is 90% ready. Only one scene left to render which doesn't require animating elements. Only a shot with statue of liberty fallen into the Hudson river and behind it the skyline of NYC destroyed. And about next week the movie will be ready for launching right on YouTube.
Sadly, it will be only a part one for now. I cannot make the battle between army jets and alien ships because as I said before, the trial period of the Keyframe animation has expired and I can't afford to buy a license for it and even with a new trial period I can't make it on time. We're talking about huge scenes where alot of elements requires to be animated. It could take whole weeks.
By now, it will be only the destruction scenes. I'll let you guys to know when the video will be on YouTube.

Cheers and Thank You for your support!

Given that the license for Keyframe Animation is only $40, why not do a small Kickstarter or GoFundMe campaign? All you would need is a handful of people to throw in a nominal donation and you'd have the money to buy the license and complete your project.

Given the enthusiasm that people have for it, I'd think it'd be a no-brainer.

Just a thought.

Good idea but I don't think I will make it. I may have 3 million views so far but I don't think people will donate for me.
I'll see what I can do.

Well if you do setup a kickstarter I would donate to your cause, ill give you exactly what it costs me for 1 beer, lucky for you I am in Sweden and that is $10 :-( so that takes you 25% of the way to your goal.

Thank you very much! You are so kind! But unfortunately Kickstarter isn't available in my country so far. I'll let it that way by now. Thank you again!

P.S. 10$ for a beer?? Really? In Romania the cheapest beer is less than 1€

Try GoFundMe or Patreon, one of them will work I am sure. If not maybe look at using a VPN. https://www.patreon.com/

A very ambitious project but you have the determination to do it. I say go for the funding, it is worth trying at the very least. I'm in.
