Some news + 10K render

I am finally back to work since a few weeks, just on time for the nice european summer. What I did since I came back from argentina :
Worked on a short 3d animation for a swiss hype/fashion magazine called OPEN Magazine. Then doing some aftereffects montages…nothing fancy. And most fun, recently I did have some time to test 2.5 , mostly on personal projects (no commercial yet, but maybe on a next one). I have to say despite the slightly slower interface feedback, i tend to like it , it has a lot of great tools, some of which do not work yet, but still look promising. I love the faster rendering, i even finally managed to render a huge 10’000×10’000 with 2000 particles instance of small animal called agotchi on a “modest” dualcore macbook pro. I think 2.49 would crash at everything exceding 5000×5000 even just with a cube scene. So now no need anymore for scripts to do big renders. Here is the image

huge 4 agotchi

big render of agotchi v4, click to view the 10'000 x 10'000 image (4meg)

For info rendered in 3min11 ( default settings 5M faces on a 8core machine though). The node compositor is very nice to use, nicer interface and faster connections possibilities. I also found 2-3 bugs so reported them. Most got fixed 🙂
Oh and a quick thing I found: Shift- Numpad 7 for the bottom view is now Ctrl- 7. Shift-7 is now showing a kind of ortho midway between 2 views.

voila that’s all for now.

    I stumbled upon your interesting blog. I love a lot this work with rabbit. I am wondering how did you manage to have this 2000 particles instance not interpenetrating each other?

    My background is Maya. I wonder if in Blender there is a way to make each particle as object and can understand each other’s volume?

    Thank you.

    Hello Jimmy,
    In fact the “rabbits” are intersecting, its just we dont really see it. In blender Particle system there is a setting called Size Deflect, i believe this option could help, but it is not really an object volume.

    Hi Olivier, aha.. you are right, now I can see few intersecting objects. I will take a look Size Deflect in Blender.
