Challenge 1: Info



The new Stills Challenge for May 1st / August 31st 2015 is:

"Around The World In 80 Days (by Verne, Jules, 1828-1905)"

Nowadays, we all are potential world travellers. Eighty days? Don't make me laugh! How boring! We need new challenges in our hasty lives; new paradigms to fill our existence. And yet, the world is full of wonders, even on our doorsteps. Let us investigate - beyond our doorsteps - that which can be found in an eighty days' journey across the globe.

1 JuuG Blues Trombone
2 JuuG Dragon Slayer
3 DrNo Recessive

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

Challenge 2: Info


The upload period for the June-July 2015 Challenge Doodle has ended. All members are kindly requested to cast their votes for the best images of the Challenge.

The new Challenge for July 16th till September 15th, 2015 is:


Thresholds are not only present at our feet when we carelessly go from one room to another in our homes. Thresholds may be discrete boundaries and yet have a fundamental impact when crossed. From light into darkness; from warm into cold; from culture into barbarism. Thresholds play a fundamental role in climate change, in human societies, in animal populations. Wherever there is change, there are thresholds.


Member Count (April 2015): 179 Cheppers ( Become a Chepper! )

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!
