new tree design


Hey guys, hows it going. Just keeping you all in the loop. The render time for the trees is incredible almost 6 minutes a frame and that's without lighting. needless to say with the time we have left we can't be getting bogged down waiting for trees to render. lucky for me the film is already stylized which means I can do whatever I want to make the trees 'more artistic' which I've done. the trees are now flat planes, and we're using displacement maps. and I love them. But I'm ment to say that, the render time however is now 23 seconds! however it doesn't matter about my opinion its yours that matters let us know!!!!

hey guys, this is a more or less ready to be rendered out test. I'm pretty happy with it. Just a few notes on what it is your watching. The reason it seems so long is because I've left a certain number of frames so when I come to edit the shots I have enough either side. so where he's moving that is where the action is. Let me know what you think.

Smoke Particle test


Smoke Transformation test. from luke smith on Vimeo.


This is a test for the smoke that we'll be using throughout the film. Kind of happy with it still needs some work though. I'm considering Attempting to add a light effect inside the smoke as something disappears and also a subtle camera shake. Let me know what you think!!
