  • Heck yes. I don’t consider myself to be so skilled yet but I’m super excited just to participate!

  • A sponsor? So there’s actually a prize for the winner or is this just advertising?

    Can I submit more than one project?

  • Hello! What’s the deadline for submitting? ta!

  • This is my first time going to participate, i can feel the excitement.
    Thanks GSG you ROCK!

  • Cool, it’s been a while last time i participated! Make me rich! 😀

  • Is there some way to have a gander at the submissions?

  • Sponsors are great, if you could have prizes for 5 second projects, that would be amazing. I think it would really incentivize a lot of great work to be produced. I’m sure there are a ton of half finished projects that get put off due to various commitments. If there was an incentive I could see more priority put on getting 5 second projects done and the quality and quantity of projects would rise!

  • Awesome! Does this mean the 5 second projects are back as a regular feature?

  • How do I create a texture like you have for the green? I’ve tried hair and architectural grass but they don’t like mini golf turf.

    • It looks like a noise effect in both the Color and the Bump channels of the material. Possibly even the noise type that is set by default when you add noise.

      Make sure to turn up the Bump so the texture doesn’t look flat.

  • And when will be the results?

  • I submitted my entry on Sept 25th, and I don’t see it in the Vimeo channel for the Mini Gold 5 Sec project…
