So I was at SIGGRAPH yesterday.  I wish you could have seen the crowds that formed every time the KeyShot Team ran it on the monster monitor!  They even applauded when it was finished!  Hit of the show, my friend!

Thanks, Tim! ;)

Bill, WOW! :o
I would indeed have loved to see that. So did they show it with the sound or the mute base animation?

Muted.  And rather bright, as is common on those large monitors in a show environment.  And EvilMaul was there as well.  Folks really did a double take when they saw his awesome self-portrait on the screen, then turned around to see him standing there.  Funny to watch!  I will say that KeyShot had one of the best displays at the show, and it was always packed.

Just for fun...

A very very angry avatar.
And a very sad avatar.
 ;D
Used rounded edge on tire with radius value of 2. It works surprisingly well.

Thanks, Josh!
I had a LOT of fun making it and I learned quite a few( animation) tricks along the way. Winning the challenge is the perfect icing on my animation cake. ;D

Btw,
Extra special thanks to Ed, who provided the hint to add lasers.
The 'laser gun' boobytrap (#9 out of 10) actually turned out to be one of the most exciting traps! (in my opinion...)

@Dries Hi there,

I see that this topic is probably long dead, but I also see a pretty nice basic laser beam.  Would you be able to describe the steps you took to create this effect? 

Thanks!

I believe these were the settings I used for the lasers. The beams are long, thin cylinders.
The most important thing is to make sure 'Visible in Shadows' is unchecked. Otherwise the 'laser beam' will cast a shadow. :)
