I would like to rerender BigBugBunny in 1920x1080 with 50p and maybe 60p in the future.
I find on the website in “Downloads” the “Entire Studio Backup (Over 200 GB)”.
If I download this and have blender installed on a Mac 10.6? Win7? current Ubuntu?
could I then open the project, change the render settings to 50p / 60p and have it generate the pngs or other stills with that frame rate? (I’m aware that it possible takes a long time to render the stills).
If somebody who is experienced with blender and possible the BBB Project could evaluate if this should work before I try to download that would be very helpful
Background: I work in the AV industrie and we work a lot with 50p (!) content. For testing purposes I would love to have a natively generated version of an open source movie with lots of movement (like BBB) that we can show and broadcast without copyright infringements etc.
Afaik, you’d need to make sure 2 use an apropriateley old version of Blender. I’ve heared they used lots of py-constraints in the BBB-rigs, all of which are broken with recent blender versions due to all of those python-API changes.
Btw., are you sure this should be posted in “Blender Tests”?
I would say technically it’s not possible.
they used a render farm, setups that were specific to the movie,
even with the right build you may have little hope of putting together the whole thing.
first I would check with bbb team that the files are good & which files to render & in what order.
I don’t think it’s as simple as get the right file press render & you get the whole movie.
I disagree here, I did some test renders once (on a simple Quad Core computer) and the render time/frame in Full HD was not bad (20 mins if I remember correct). Sure that depends on the scene as well. But I think it’s possible to re-render the thing with a few decent quad core computers and 6GB Ram (I think you need 4 at least for the files.)
And people please read his first post, he sais that he is aware that it probably takes a long time.
