This Post Has 5 Comments totally49 8 Jun 2005 Pretty cool work – how long did that take to make/render, then? admin 8 Jun 2005 Creating the scene + learning how to use Blender took around 2 days. It takes around 1.5 mins to render each frame * 400 frames = 10 hours. I let it render while I was asleep / at work, so I don’t know exactly how long it took. I’m gonna look into how to render over the network so I can split the load across my two machines. Adding the title / images and then compressing the movie with iMovie took like 5 minutes. totally49 8 Jun 2005 Oh, can it do that nifty network distributed processing thingy? I’m sure that’ll make it a whole load quicker. So, 400 frames, 30 seconds – its running at about 13 FPS in presentation? Pretty smooth. So, whats with the animation anyway? Just doing it out of interest, or have you got future career prospects in mind? admin 8 Jun 2005 yep 15 FPS. I was bored, really. Every week I get an email from VersionTracker about what software has been update during the week, and I saw a program called Cheetah 3D that looked pretty cool. I made the first image with that, but it was shareware so I couldn’t save it. Then I was curious about what the Blender project had been up to since it went open source, so I played around with it over the weekend, and a movie came out 😛 Actually, suggested I make a movie after seeing the other four pictures I sent him. totally49 8 Jun 2005 Heh, you made a good job at those pics – I didn’t even realise they were from two different programs, although I guess you could tell that the first one doesn’t have much anti-aliasing.
