Ocean test animations

Just practicing on how to make realistic looking waves. Animation was made using the free version of Vue called Vue Pioneer.

Sunset above the clouds

I made an animation of a scene I rendered a few months back. The 30 sec animation rendered in Vue 8 took more sixty hours to finish or like 2 hours for every second of video. I am also practicing post production using Virtual Dub, Windows Movie Maker and Bink Video. This is my first animation that has background music on it.

Forest test animation with post production

This version of the video that was posted earlier had undergone some post production work. I tried tweaking the brightness and contrast and also added some chromatic aberration. Motiva real camera was used to do the post work.

Forest test animation

I was not able to update my blog for the past month. I was not really that busy but I was not just in any mood to write something.

During the long weekend (April 2-4) I decided to render an animation using the free version of Indigo Renderer. The whole scene including the vegetation was modeled inside Sketchup. (actually all the trees here are the same ones I uploaded to the warehouse several months ago) The 12 sec. animation at 30fps took 90 hrs. to render. Each 720x480 frame took an average of 14 mins. to render.
