Free Future City Pack!


The future is here! Our community-built Future City pack is now available. I want to personally thank everyone who contributed and submitted their work for this pack.

Sorry it took longer than expected, we had a lot of files to sort through and optimize to work in Element and organize into one place but here it is!

Download Future City Pack and Information

The pack contains a variety of 30 buildings to create stunning futuristic city sky-lines inside Element 3D. Some models feature high resolution textures and others have lower resolution and work better for distant buildings. Experiment for best results! Remember be thankful to all those who worked on these!

There is a lot of variety and you can even user the Element 3D replicator, you can create some fun combinations like above.

NOTE:
Be sure you are running the latest version of Element 3D V1.6

This is just an early preview (very raw stuff) on wath i am working at the moment.

We all know it can be challenging creating and rendering huge 3D cities with the amount of detail we need for that shoot.
I know there are already some solutions for this types of situations but, what usually happens is, that you always ended up eating all the juice from your graphics card processor memory, and had to finish up the scenes with parallax background jpeg images faking the rest of the city.


this is ok for some situations but...

Imagine the following: we have a helicopter flying over a city, and we need many different angles for that shot.( this is very difficult to do with a hand full of 3D buildings and a fake jpeg parallax image right?

With these kits you can extend you 3D set considerably large,I MEAN REALLY HUGE and render that full 3D shot right inside after effects.

These kits would allow you to make and experiment different configurations and layouts ex: day and night, animated or still, and render them lightning fast.
Each render on this scene only took about 10/15 min. considering the amount of detail its pretty fast :)

If the element 3D community gives my finical work and ideas a positive feedback ill continue to work on these, improve them and make full time project out of it.

I am planning to make packs like:

Alien cities
Future cities
SCI fi cities
Military complexes
Normal cites
and many others

So ill be right here expecting your feedback and suggestions! Lets see if this has some demand and maybe it can turn out to be an asset that will help many!

Hey, Andrew, I love all your work, especially your "rigged aircraft", but, just an idea, isn't more usefull, for the "every day vfx labor", buses, bikes and cars(not just the wheels), even a rigged exploding car will be great(an animated OBJ), like your tutorials.
Or differents model, one brand new, another one rust, or broken, I think that will be a great package, also animate OBJ with broken glass or blood like it was an "Action 3"
I think you change the we see the After Effects, and I'll love planes, and Sci Fi, but maybe, not always we have the opportunity to use planes or a futuristic, and incredible free package, i'm tenting to buy you all the staff, always trying to convincing my bosses, but a police car rigged, with the licght an an animated texture with bullet holes, and them explodin....aaaaaah, I like how it's sounds.

and would love to have you check out my page on Indiegogo. I have some great perks for you guys if you pledge.If you need more info about the film you can go to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3383196/ to see info on me, the actors and general info about the film.

    Go to the Video Copilot folder on your computer and then into the 'Models' folder, add a new folder (I named mine Buildings) then into this place all the files from the download package. When you open E3D next the models will be there with textures pre-applied. (Make sure you have the .E3D files, .OBJ files and the maps folder)
    Vinnie K
    2 years ago
    That stranges Nick cause I downloaded it, put the entire map in the VC folders (My Models) and E3D showed all models completely textured.

    Maybe your map isn't complete or the file corrupt.

I sincerely wish I could have contributed but I lack experience in real 3D modelling. This is awesome!
Thanks for all your input to all VC Junkies out there.

Someone here suggested to create an Element Library. Wouldn't that be great to have 3D models (animated, rigged etc.) in the cloud, created by the community, accessible with your VC account?? Upload it to VC, VC optimizes it for the use in E3D where we all pay a couple of bucks for per pack or download.

Great pack, I do own Element 3d but I also want to be able to use these cool buildings in my university projects. They won't let me use Element on those projects so I have to use them natively in 3ds max. I was wondering when I import the obj files, there is no mtl files only jpegs, I'm having trouble re-linking the files to the models. Any help would be much appreciated. an example on one of the buildings would be helpful thanks.

    Well done, but for your next project try to get more creative with changing the Action Essentials look. I can tell the fire was just dropped ontop of the sky scrapers, and any one else who knows action essentials will see the same thing. It was more of a detraction from what was going on a times than a good looking effect. Otherwise the fireballs and what not looked good and fit well. Keep it up .

    This is a great video with good vfx and colour blending settings.

    @ Bobfab
    The effects are just great. Only the people here on VC recognizes the fires and for this video they do the trick nicely.. Considering working within AE and E3D this is great.... if you don't have Nuke or Houdini or whatever. Let's see where you come up with....

Andrew,
Thanks so much for organizing this. Was computer-less at the time, so couldn't contribute.

Would love a round 2 of this, but would also love to suggest the next event to be a Post Apocalypse pack. Destroyed buildings would be amazing. Or a Sci Fi vehicles pack.

I am just getting into Element 3D, but it seems it would be possible to make custom buildings models using Element. Am I crazy for thinking this? Would make a great tutorial. Or at least a quick tutorial on how to make sure whatever we build is to the correct specs.

Also, A video about a VFX workflow for indie/no-budget folks would be tremendously helpful to us all.

Thanks again so much for this. It will really add to my genre film-making efforts. Like they said in Super 8, "PRODUCTION VALUE!!!!!!"

Great job team and contributors!

Set extension is really fast, easy and powerful with this stuffs! I can't even imagine how much you guys can go further! Maybe a plugin named "Just think and I'll make that 3D myself!" soon!?

    Actually, if you can use a 3D editing package, you can easelly rig it in E3D! Import your baked 3D Object, texture it and set as a preset model, no more to it actually!

Will there be any tutorials for this package?

Maybe how to combine Metropolitan and this package, or how to make a good looking futuristic city sky-line?

Anyway thanks to all that have worked with this package!

Cheers!!

Can you share how many total users contribute to the pack beside the 30 that was chosen? just curious :)
    2 years ago
    To be honest, not that many more. A few were too similar or not quite finished enough with textures that we tried to limit what we released to keep the download small. Still 800MBs though!

Great addition to the Metropolitan pack I got!
    2 years ago
    For sure! Metropolitan has some killer roof details and textures but the future buildings are perfect for creating sci-fi worlds!

    Our product Metropolitan also includes 3D formats for C4D, Max and FBX which saves a ton of time. The future city packe pack is only optimized for E3D but the OBJ files and textures can be recreated to use in most 3D programs as well.

    Thanks so much for including the extra 3d formats! I might optimize some of the buildings for VRay in C4D... Hehe...

    So, Element is a great value but it really slogs down in AE. I may have something configured wrong but things are too slow to be practical. I hope to be able to buy the new Mac Pro soon. For now, that is my fix unless someone has an idea on settings. The weird thing is everything is fast in Element but as soon as I go to AE the 3D is very slow.
