Maxwell RC5 Testing

Wednesday, February 15, 2006
Here's something that you've haven't seen. I'm testing Maxwell Render Release Candidate 5 at the moment and here's a scene I did a couple of weeks ago. This uses glass-, silver- and goldshaders and the scene has about 1 million triangles total. THINGY RC5.

Here you can see that original scene rendered with mental ray. CONNECTED.


Alive & Kicking

I'm back. I've been neglecting my blog since I've been working a lot the last 4-5 months. I've been working TOO much, but it's all fun (and it's all my fault too) so I can't really blame anyone but myself. Since my last post I've been up in Stockholm two times and also in London! That was a fun trip. I might post some pics from that trip up here later on. I took about 400 digital photos while I was there and it was my first time in the UK. I loved it. I'm gonna try to start blogging again more frequently. So much has happened so I don't really know where to begin...

At the moment I'm rendering a little CG-film (only 10 minutes long) which I've created for fun in Maya. It's a abstract Sci-Fi-short and it's currently rendering, in mental ray, on 12x Athlon64-workstations at CGI Academy. Tomorrow it has rendered for about 5 days and most of it should be complete. By the end of next week I should have edited it and it should be 100% complete. I'm gonna encode it in either H.264, Xvid or DIVX and host it someplace. It's rendered in 1024x768 so it will be a rather big file. Anyways, when it's done I'll put up a thread about it with a link to the file.
