If you need to do some masking, so you build a structure to support a figure, do those pieces count?October 18, 2004 at 2:54 pm #63707
Just for clariity, here are the rules again:
1. The film must not contain more than 10 visible elements.
2. Everything (from Lego or else) that can be detached without breaking is an element (see example below)
3. Every element visible (apart from background and optional baseplate) will be counted.
4. This is an animation contest, not a Special Effects contest, so the use of effects other than masking is strongly discouraged. Visible items like digitally added smoke, laser beams, etc. will be considered ADDITIONAL elements and are therefore only to use if there are no more than 10 elements INCLUDING the special effects visible during the film (rule 1).
5. A still picture showing all elements visible during the film must be included in the credits.
only elements will be counted that are visible at any time of the film. Supportive structures that either remain hidden or are edited out in postprocessing by masking will not be counted.

But the use of music or sound fx is allowed?
If “yes” can we used copyrighted material?October 18, 2004 at 5:29 pm #63731
So if I show a brick moving around a real bottle, that bottle counts as element?
If yes, my idea was just destroyedOctober 18, 2004 at 5:32 pm #63732
MUSIC & SFX do NOT count as elements. you can give your horse a ride in that case
copyrighted material should not be used anyway.
i would say: copyrighted music IS prohibited in the 10BC.
but this is NOT the last word about it. i sended a email to stefan and christoph so we will decide together….
… and now: happy planing YOUR 10 Brick Movie….
the bottle would count as a element. but with one brick stepping around the bottle: you still have 8 elements left….October 18, 2004 at 6:02 pm #63733
Can you have only one figure built out of 10 bricks, or multiple out of 10 bricks or can you only use for example 2 figures both built from 5 bricks?October 18, 2004 at 6:06 pm #63734

2 10 piece Figures would be 20 pieces, but 2 5 piece Figures would
be 10 pieces.October 18, 2004 at 7:02 pm #63745

Can you specify a compression limit – no more than 3MB per minute or something? I don’t want to be downloading a 100MB 2 minute film.October 18, 2004 at 7:46 pm #63760
Can you specify a compression limit
Hey n00b, read the contest page.
Entries must not be longer than 2 minutes.
To ensure, that also non-broadband users can download most of the films we require a version of the film with a resolution of max. 320×240 and a max. size of 2MB encoded in either RealMedia or DiVX.
In addition to that, a high quality version may be submitted. This must not have a filesize bigger than 8MB and should be as well in either RealMedia or DiVX.
