Encounter
I never worked on Unity before, but wanted to give a try to real-time 3D. I needed some "motivation milestone" for my first steps. The Neon Challenge came right in time, even if I had only one month to understand the software while making the project... I finished the animation two hours before deadline, so please forgive me for the glitchy details and for the lack of informations about the making of (I'll try to upload additional things after the project end if I the system let me do so)!
The landscape is from World Machine, textures are Substances. I used MicroSplat from Jason Booth for the terrain (with Anti-Tile, Global Texture, Tessellation and Triplanar extensions). The pseudo-baboab tree is one I made a couple of years ago and that fitted perfectly with this environment. Characters are from Fuse and animations from Mixamo. The rhinos and the flies are from the Asset Store for free (Fantasy Rhino by Maksim Bugrimov and Flies System by Made for Games). The atmospheric scattering is from the Unity Blacksmith asset. The vegetation is a simple moss billboard used as detail grass on the Unity standard terrain editor. I used a mass placement utility that can place grass on a specific layer of the splat-map.

Thank you for your comments! However, I wasn't happy with some details that I couldn't troubleshot before deadline (sound issues, mp4 compression artifacts,...). And I wanted to add a title. So I published an edited version : https://youtu.be/E_tafhW-AAQ. It has been published after the end of the contest, so it won't count for the judging, but is more enjoyable to watch !

Terrain in haze looks fantastic. And overall final cut looks really good!

Thx! Final cut was more detailed on my mind, but because of lack of time, I've had to keep it simple... and in the end, I find it better this way. Definitely a "less is more" situation.
