  17. Hi Guys, So here are three of my submissions. I wanted to stick with mostly videos since i am better at it than hand drawing. All the footage are made by myself. Since there are some color differences in the two displays, so the GIFs have been color changed to look consistent in the real displays. Thanks :)

  19. All my themes are mostly based on the product they're intended for and the main purpose of the Floe RC, cooling and waterflow. SANTA SNOW FLOE (1st of main 5) As its close to Christmas and Christmas is normally the coldest part of the year in the UK, I thought I would do a snow and Santa theme. I like to try different things and I'm never 100% happy most the time, so i have a couple of versions of many of the GIFs for people to pick from if they like them, fake snow, real snow, Santa and no Santa versions. Filmed using Tt RGB LED strips, fake snow on the ground, fake falling snow and most have animated snow falling or none. Several speeds and lighting conditions create the different effects. Main set 1 EXTRA versions

  20. THE PROCESS The main software I used is Adobe Photoshop with my digital tablet. I drew all of the characters with their separate parts that needs to move. (head, eyes, hair, body, effects and accessories) This step took a lot of hours from designing, sketching, line-art, coloring and finalizing. I used wallpaper engine for animating the separated parts. I was able to apply all the complicated movements like blinking, shake, water waves, glowing and breathing effect. I exported all the videos and used Premiere Pro for looping the animation and adjusting the timings.

  21. THE CONCEPT The first thing came up in my mind for the GIF I could make was a mascot or character/s for Thermaltake. I was hesitant at first because character designing will be a lot of work. At the end of the first week I was able to make a sketch of the characters. This is their early design. Presenting the Thermaltake Comets: Luna, Hibana and Sol. The members of Ttake Comets are experienced defenders with their specialization in weapons. Luna- marksman from the West. She has the ninety-nine percent accuracy with any long-range weapon she can use . Hibana - cursed brawler of the Underground City. The chosen host of the parasitic fire gauntlet. Sol - swordsman of the Far East. She traveled the whole world mastering all the sword-styles with her pulse katana. I decided to make GIF set for each of the character. The CPU LCD will have their animated portrait GIF and the RAM LCD will have their animated pose GIF.

  22. Haha thx. Was actually also the first time we did animations this way. Was a lot of fun, even though just scratching on the surface of the abilities of After Effects.

  23. I wont post a load of videos, but here is some screen shots of all the ball videos I did before then editing, I was not happy with the results so this GIF was scrapped due to time being an issue. I might continue it later though and share with anyone that might want them.

  26. And the final Hamster animations!

  27. 2. Hamsters in my PC For the CPU display, I designed a cartoon hamster wheel with a hamster running inside – just as the hamster is firing the engine ^^. I drew the image again in Adobe illustrator and imported it into After Effects for animating. The wheel was fairly simple to animate and I just used the “rotation” (R) tool, making it rotate around its own axis. I moved the key frames until the speed of the wheel was just right. The animation of the hamster was a bit trickier. Again, I made sure that every part I wanted to animate, like the tail, ear and the two legs, was put into an individual layer in the illustrator file. For the front and back leg, I also used the rotation tool (R). However, I first moved the anchor point, around which each leg is supposed to rotate, using the “pan behind” tool (Y) (shown on top in blue in the image below). I moved the anchor point to the position, where I imagined the joint of the leg. Then, I used just a few degrees (like 15-20°) to move the leg back and forth. I copy/pasted the key frames to repeat the movement and adjusted the speed (distance between two key frames) to the rotation speed of the wheel. To animate the tail and the hamster’s body which should move and slightly bend while running, I used the “Puppet position pin tool” (Strg+P). For the tail, I put two fixed pins on the edges (see below, open yellow circles) and one pin that I can move around a bit to make it look as the tail is moving slightly up and down while running. For the body, I placed multiple pins all over the surface (15 in total) and adjusted their position, so the whole hamster will bend a bit while running. This step just took some time to play around with the pins until the changes in the body shape looked good and not too exaggerated. The key frames were synchronized to the key frames of the legs. So, the whole movement looks smooth. For the memory cooler display, I was long time undecided what to do. So, I just thought, ok, a hamster should not come single. So, I wanted to place another one and while Hamster #1 (let’s call him Puk) keeps the PC running, why not hamster #2 (called Fops) being counterproductive and chewing some cable inside your PC. I drew another cartoon hamster sitting on some cables and having one cable in his mouth in illustrator. On top of the hamster, I added a layer having the hamster’s shape and showing only the skeleton of him. I also created some zick-zack stripes which are supposed to represent some electricity – I guess you know what’s coming. Every single part was again put into individual layers for the After Effect animation later on. The skeleton and the electricity layer were not visible at the beginning. The hamster is not moving, but just cawing on that cable in his paws. I used again the “Puppet position pin” tool to set defined pins at the mouth and cheeks which are supposed to move slightly up and down by changing the position of the individual pins. After a while, the whole hamster will move up and the skeleton-layer, laying on top of the other layers, appears together with the electric zick-zacks. The hamster-layer below just disappears at the same time, because I wanted the hamster to shake a bit. Using the puppet position pin tool, I put multiple points (9 in total) around the hamster’s surface. Because I wanted to create a more random, shaking pattern, I just used the command line for the position of each pin. You just have to press “alt” and click on the position stop watch and the command line will open. I just typed in “wiggle(15,29) with 15 being the speed of the random movement and 29 the magnitude. I tried out different combination of speed and magnitude until I liked the outcome. After electrocuting for 3 sec, the hamster just moves back to its normal position continuing chewing on the cable (who else ever had a hamster knows that they just never learn ^^). The “wiggle” command (alt click on “Position” stop watch) is really cool for random movements and saves you a lot of time.

  29. Same problem here. I have 10 Riing Quad fans on 2 controllers and I have to reboot my machine multiple times before both controllers are detected. I am completely regret having bought these fans. I had bought fans years ago from Thermaltake and always had problems with the software not running properly. I would have hoped that after that many years they would have solved their software problems, but now not only is the software still terrible and mostly doesn't work (and when it does it chews a ton of CPU usage), but now I can see that the hardware is even more unreliable. I've spent close to $1,000 dollars on these fans (which look great), but are completely unreliable due to very very poor quality hardware controllers which are only intermittently recognized. If you do a Google search you will see that there are very many of us with this same problem, unfortunately always with Thermaltake fans. There are some threads on this forum that are 4 years old with similar problems and no responses from tt support. Very disappointing.

  36. So lets go, Hi everyone, I’m Stefan, a PC modder and prop maker from Germany who currently lives in Michigan, US. Some of you may know me and my wife Kathrin as RandomDesign from building custom, extraordinary PCs. Now, I’m happy to tackle this new challenge for the Thermaltake Ultra GIF Design Invitational and make some custom animations for the Floe RC Ultra 240 CPU & Memory AIO Liquid Cooler. I like to try out different ways on how to create animations and short videos, which hopefully will inspire you to also customize your CPU and Memory displays. Here are the ideas we gathered so far (just working titles to keep you curious ^^). I’m planning on using mainly Adobe illustrator, After Effects and Premier to create 2D key frame animations. If I got some time at the end, I also will work on some 3D animations using Cinema 4D and I’m looking forward to sharing my progress with you: 1. Kittimania (2D animation) 2. Hamsters in my PC (2D animation and/or Stop-motion) 3. Submarine/Birdseye (Video/drone footage editing) 4. Think Tank (3D animation)

    Calling it quit

    After 10 years of pc building I'm quitting the diy. Is not a hobby anymore, is a luxury. Crazy prices on everything has taken the fun out of it, so i'll keep my pc's and remember it all as a great time.
