Tumbling down the rabbit hole

Tuesday, 18 January 2011

So deadline is just around the corner and the work flow has really picked up. I am glad with the way things have finally picked up but it is a little too late to create our dream for this animation.

To make this work we really have to be organised and productive as possible. Firstly CUTS, we need to save render time and not burn out our cpus. We don't need this to be too pretty, little extras would be nice but we just don't have the time to do it. Save time by adding things in editing if needs be.

Try to keep lighting down and polly count low. Depending on how you are rendering, lower the settings. If your using mental ray, lower the final gather settings a bit, final gather adds about 5 seconds to your time so its worth doing.

The time for any modelling is now over, we have to get into rendering ASAP! Start to finish up now and start to think about any animation that needs to be done. Ideally you will be rendering tonight and tomorrow and applying those final touches in editing before the final composition takes place.

We are also lowering the resolution to 1152x648. Make sure you take a note of that. When it comes to premier/AE use the settings in PAL Widescreen to ensure we all have the same size. Audio rate will be 48.

If you are sending a scene to someone make sure the scene is clean and doesn't have any; textures, groups, objects, lights and layers that aren't being used. When you have finished group your scene if you have to send it across, name it and layer it. Try to use naming conventions everywhere so it isn't as confusing for the other person. The little things like this will save time, even naming you scene correctly helps alot! I would suggest YOYRNAME_FILENAME_TYPEOFSCENE.ext. It will save confusion and therefore less problems will occur.

The next few nights/days are vital, make them count!
