UPDATE: Scroll down to my second post below for the other blend file
Automated Multi Angle Rendering
Not an image but a “finished Blender project” nonetheless
I posted this initially in response to Alltaken in another thread, but I felt it should be more widely visible and accessible to any Blender users out there who can use or adapt this for their purposes
This is a continuation of a technique I have used for previous projects such as “Another Girl with a Pearl Earring” and my long term virtual museum project.
Here’s what the file does:
Automatically render anything in the center of the circle in the file from multiple angles using nothing more than standard Blender objects and techniques.
The circle has an oscillating Local IPO curve which causes the camera to rise and fall as it encircles an object or scene, so as to reveal and render a model from many different sides.
The file has an example text object and a Susan.
You can adapt this for animations or single still shots.
You can adjust the file accordingly to meet your needs. It’s free and comes with no guarantees, so do with it what you will
You should be able to include the main ingredients from this file into an existing blend file by using the File: Append function in Blender. Alternately, you can Append objects into this file.
Instructions are included in the file, along with some tips.
The resulting output can be looped seemlessly for animations.
Here’s the blend file (small, approx. 100k)
I hope someone out there finds this helpful
