Bum gettin’ rendered
Woot! We now have a PC dedicated to rendering the Nell film 24-7. This should help speed up the process considerably. Currently we’re on about 15mins a frame, and we can only render when we’re not using our main comp!!
So far we have two custom built PCs from http://www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk/. They’ve been super efficient and fairly priced, plus I like that you can add and change components around and see how this affects the total price dynamically. I know there are cheaper ways to go out and pick parts and build yourself, but to be honest, we ain’t got time for that shiz!
We won’t be posting too much rendered stuff (as it’s nice to be surprised by this stuff isn’t it? ;-), but here’s a teaser of shot02. Render still needs refining but the basic blocks are here. Motion blur to be added in post, hand to be masked by table.
Oh yeah - and we’ll be replacing the picture on the poster.. just as soon as we work out what’s going to go on it!
