Got some advice on rendering. Apparently for the amount of frames I did, it’s much better to render them as individual frames and then piece together the AVI from that. So I chose PNGs since they are lossless. If the last render session is any indication, it’ll be nearly Thursday before I can put the […]
After waiting all this time, the [penguin animatin] file is unreadable or corrupted! Gah!
The rendering of my penguin cartoon is over. Now I will review it and add a soundtrack. If everything goes right I hope to have it up by tomorrow or Wed at the latest.
I finally finished the animation for the penguin short. It looks to be about 2 minutes long. (Not including opening and closing credits) I will now begin rendering and we shall see just how long it takes to render. I was originally going to do an HD render, but I’m afraid it will take much […]
I came across this page today where someone has posted a video entitled Suburban Plight. The movie is a combination of live action and computer graphics created with Blender! The result looks very nice. I’m glad the author decided to share it with us. Check it out!
He must have saved up a bunch of Pepsi Points.
Just wanted to talk about Vimeo, a flickr-like site for videos. You can see my videos at http://www.vimeo.com/user:djotaku/clips . Some of my readers may notice that I have these clips on my server (except Pao Bhangra). So why would you go to vimeo? Because my server has limited bandwidth. I think it uploads at 2 […]
My penguin now has the gift of vision. Doubtless he will complain about the crap environment I’ve put him in. There aren’t even any fish!
My penguin now has bones! And you can see him do “Penguin Aerobics” in the accompanying short video.
Oh, all of my penguin CG renders are, of course, copyrighted to me. However, I am copylefting them under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0 which you can read about by clicking on the link.
It seems that way recently, but that’s just because I haven’t had much time for anything else. It’s been a crazy few days. That said, here I’ve added light inside the penguin’s house. and here he is snoozing on the bed I just made him. Once I make him a few more things, I think […]
As you can see, he now has a door, but it’s a bit dark in there as I haven’t added any furniture or a lamp yet.
Unfortunately for him, I haven’t built an opening into his igloo yet, so he’s kinda stuck outside. That’s fine because I haven’t made him any furniture yet! But then again, I haven’t made him eyes yet, so perhaps he doesn’t know about the igloo yet? So much to do and so little time to do […]
Here’s my second render. I love penguins and they’re the mascot of Linux, so why not work on penguins. Here’s how I progressed with my penguin as I learned more last night. And….BONUS….here’s my second video. This one’s 8 times as long as the previous one! Watch Penguins Jump (and Cameras move)!
Here’s my first (admittedly simple) render with Blender. I did one before, but I didn’t really know what I was doing. This time I’m gearing up to do some serious playing. Full size is available by click on the picture. I also created a very short animation (just over 1 second) to test the animation […]
