Paper Clip Scene: animation

Post by kwistenbiebel » Thu Aug 07, 2008 1:25 pm

Hi Indigo bunch,

A paper clip animation.


Some stats:
- render time over all: 7 hours
- 180 frames @10 fps.
- each frame rendered 2.3 minutes
- system: Mac Pro 8 core running Vista 64
- version: (Sk)Indigo 1.0.9
- lighting: HDR

The last part of the animation contains two panning stills which were rendered using Fry render (sorry for that ;) ).


The link to the vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bk7jnxlsRuE&fmt=18

I hope you like it.

Regards,

Kwistenbiebel


PS: Could we have embedded Flash support (video hosts) on the Indigo forum, ppppplease? :lol:

It's nice, but the camera movement is a bit abrupt, as in your previous animation. Is there no way in SU to smooth the camera's IPO curve or draw less angular paths?

+1 to that

I really like the music though :) Paper clip looked real too no crits on that.

Thanks for your comments.
Camera control is a difficult thing for animation in sketchup.

There is a plugin around where you can set up a bezier curve that defines the camera path (Flightpath.rb) but it is not intuitive to use.

Thank you :)

You are right about the timing of the anim and the music.
I didn't have the right inspiration on music at the moment I composited the video. I'll spend more time on that in a next animation.
Good observation , thanks.
