Re: Movies and TV

REVIEW Star Wars: The rise of Skywalker Spoiler free. Entertaining and pretty good. I give it 4.7 of 5 on the entertainment meter. I recommend watching it. What a pleasant surprise! I read that it was not good and was so full of PC stuff that it was nearly unwatchable. Since it is Disney I would ex...

Re: Christmas Card 2020.2

Here are video tests to check noise vs. denoise in motion. This is a worst case with the camera moving and turning. Most scenes will have a stationary camera and I think it will look better that way. This also tests the 28mm focal length I read is popular with film directors. That gives a wide angle...

Re: Christmas Card 2020.2

@James The room will have brighter lighting for most of the movie. For dark scenes the Christmas tree lights could work as you suggest. Backlit. Hmm, that could work to make the bad guy look ominous. Some details, Christmas decorations, and presents and I'll be done with the setting. Then the charac...

Re: Christmas Card 2020.2

Thanks trueBlue! Thanks Spacekdet for ceiling suggestions. Here is a render test with a fire simulation. I think a warm fire is good for Christmas pictures. I thought it might take too long to render with fire. One of these million polygon critters renders in about 48 seconds with Cycles. 50 seconds...

Things I modeled: - The building itself. - The tree (Blender sapling generator) and the ornaments - The oil lamp on the table (from here ) - An antique pharmacy bottle (from here ) - Bottles from...

Re: 2020

Hi Marcel! I hope you enjoyed your holidays and that next year is very good. Art is in the artist. Good tools can help but experience, skill, and knowledge make any tool good. An expert with a stick will defeat a beginner with a sword. I must visit your web site and see what you have done recently. ...
