Check out the latest computer animation on Badnitrus featuring Silver Bullet, Knott's Berry Farms's recently announced B&M inverted coaster. This animation was also shown at the No Coaster Con event in Chicago, and features many off-ride views of the coaster as well as POV video. The high resolution version requires membership in CoasterBuzz Club.

I just wonder what folks in "upper management" at the different parks think if/when your stuff is passed along to them.
My favorite shot is when you show Silver Bullet and Monte in their vertical loops together, that was damn creative. Great sound effects, too...but who *was* that jackhole yelling during the POV?! ;)
Again, awesome job!
If it's as good as the still shots of Silver Bullet, I'm going to wet my pants.
Wood - anything else is an imitation
Now there's an unbiased opinion ;)
Seriously, this was a true highlight of No Coaster Con. They way you depicted not only the park and rides surrounding Silver Bullet but the city and mountains...awesome work, Keith! I wish I was 1/2 as talented as you.
Joe, does this mean you'll be changing your name from "Legendary" to "Jackhole" ;)
...even if it was for C-Buzz Club Members only, I'd sign up in a blink of an eye.
Mamoosh - A highlight of No Coaster Con? You really think so??? :) I think I enjoyed most all of the video of news media riding front seat on TTD, that was hilarious!
I wonder if the shot with Monty and Bullet going through the loops while Jaguar threads the needle will ever happen?
Too freakin' cool.
Nice work... but that goes without saying!
In some of your animations, there are other coasters. In this one, there is Jaguar and Montezuma's Revenge. In your animation of Batman: TDK @ SFNE, there is the park's Vekoma SLC. Obviously, those coasters had to be created and animated (to some degreee). Have you ever thought about posting them on the site for those that are willing to download them? I'm sure that I'm not the ONLY one that would like to ride a virtual SLC... right?
Once again, absolutely beautiful work!
Not to speak for Keith (even though I am going to, ha), I think a major reason he wouldn't ever put animations for those rides up is because they are not done as meticulously as the "premier" attraction in the vid -- meaning they don't have nearly the amount of detail in them. They serve their purpose since they are far away and you can't see the imperfections in them.
Of course, I'll let the master say what the real reason is, since that is just my guess. ;)
