POLYWINK announces its very first "Flash Contest" on a bewitching theme to prove that, thanks to its technology based on machine learning, Polywink is able to make any 3D model ready for animation in a few hours.
If you’re a 3D professional and you wish to be a part of Polywink’s journey, this might be your lucky day: entrants must only submit a still render of a 3D head, while winners of this contest will get access to different Polywink services, free of charge. The Polywink team will generate complete sets of blendshapes for the submitted model, turning a static character into an animation-ready or game-ready asset overnight!
• 1st place: Facial Rig on Demand (236 blendshapes) + $150 Polywink voucher
• 2nd place: Blendshapes on Demand (157 blendshapes) + $150 Polywink voucher
• 3rd place: Animation For iPhone X (52 ARKit blendshapes) + $150 Polywink voucher
• Honorable Mentions: $150 Polywink voucher
This challenge is called a “Flash Contest” due to the short amount of time contestants have to submit their entry to the jury. But it is not required to create a model for the sole purpose of this contest: anyone can submit models they have created for other purposes in the past, as long as they own full rights to said model. Deadline for entries is May 28 2019.
