FWIW I agree with both sides in this discussion. The winners played exactly by the rules and won fair and square, no question. 
However I believe that Grabiller doesn't have any issue with the winners (so don't attack him on that mistaken basis), and IMHO he is quite right to warn against the impression which might be formed by those of us (me included) who actually didn't read the rules so carefully (as either the winners or Grabiller), that "all you need is iClone" (more or less). So I hope this thread doesn't just descend into another twisted argument, there are far too many of them already on the forums and IMHO those of us who care about iClone and animation in general really need to stick together more.

Well said and summarized. I'm afraid Wungun didn't understand a bit about that though lol. Anyway, lets stick together, yes. Cheers.

lol ....wungun,  you are being way too sensitive on the topic,  you are defending your win ...yes you worked hard but Grabiller isn't saying anything negative about your work.  His comments made sense and your work was good.

And Grabiller,  you are not on any blacklist,  at least not with me,  wungun reacted to you,  as you reacted to me and my comments in past threads lol    ( laughs,  now you know how I felt :p )

btw,  great work on all contest entries.   They were all fun movies....i personally could care less if you used a sony red or stop motion....it was either fun to watch or not.  


this forum may have many quarrels,  but the beauty of it is,  everyone is being honest with each other,  stop taking honesty so negatively.   Either you agree with the assessment or you dont,  either you enjoy your own work or you don't.
I personally learned to say "I liked what I did very much" regardless of public opinion.

Awesome... presented clips looks alike Pixar made them! Great job. I wish to know how much time animators have spend to make such masterpiece...

Don't leave anything for tomorrow if you can finish it today
