Welcome to 3D Stills and Animations Challenges

The January/April 2014 Stills Challenge: Star has the following winners:

1 mcgregor Starfruit Vanitas
2 SeanDay Starfish
3 ThomdeG Supernova

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all who participated and/or voted in this round.


The upload period for the May/August 2014 Challenge The War of the Worlds, by Wells H. G. (1866-1946) has ended. All members are kindly requested to cast their votes for the best images of the Challenge. The voting period closes at the end of the current month. Please remember that you have to vote for ALL the images if you want your votes to be taken into account. This is absolutely mandatory.


The new Stills Challenge for September 1st / December 31th 2014 is:

"The Secret Passage (by Hume, Fergus, 1859-1932)" - Part 1 (September/October); Part 2 (November/December)

After The War of the Worlds we go on with a Victorian mystery novel, although you may interpret the topic in any way that pleases you. Secret passages are compelling sites that draw us despite our misgivings or our fears. Dark mysteries are hidden beyond or maybe wonders, lost kingdoms or maybe hidden worlds. You will show us in due time.


The Challenge for Animations has been suspended due to the dearth of entries. It will be resumed if there is any renewed interest. Please Contact Us if you would like it restarted.

Member Count (December 2013): 172 Cheppers ( Become a Chepper! )

Hopefully, you have arrived here because you are interested in 3D Computer graphics and possibly interested in rendering 3D images and animations. You are all welcome to join in and enjoy the Challenge! If you are not a member, simply register with us by clicking the 'Register' link above.

We want to see the best 3D stills  and animations artwork that you can develop using the rendering program and tools of your choice for the given subject. Over the 'Internet' and home-computing years, there have been many advancements in computer chip technology, which has enabled us budding 3D artists to actually do what we want to do. One usage that has catapulted in popularity on home computers is the ability to make/develop a still image or animation using various 3D rendering and raytracing programs used along with associated 3D modelling and texture software.

So get yourself some free programs (see above) and give it a try!

Last but not least, this TC-RTC website is here for everyone to have fun and to enjoy the experience of creating an image or animation in 3D given the present challenge.

We all look forward to seeing yours.

Above all else, enjoy the Challenge!
