I have a particular problem that needs solving, and someone reading this can help me.
It is perhaps best to explain the general problem using an example. Suppose we have an object. Let’s say a car. This was produced in mint condition – no scratches, no rust, and otherwise perfect off the production line. With time, however, the environment takes its toll on the car. After a few minutes, the car is in all respects still perfect. But after a month, an we might notice a small scratch somewhere, and after a year, there will be numerous small scratches. After 5 years, the car is noticeably different from mint condition, and rust has even started to appear. After 50 years, the car is riddles with rust.
I am looking for a person who is astute at Blender, and Python scripting, who can create a script that can create an object in mint condition, and loop through incremental changes in this object as explained above, and after each loop, save the image to file. It is important that the increments are equal. Another challenge is the number of combinations. For example, one can imagine changing the amount of scratches incrementally, but having no rust at all for each of these settings. On the other hand, for each level of scratches, the may be many degrees of rust. In other words, for two dimensions (rust and scratches, for example), with, say, 10 settings in each, 100 images are possible.
Now, the object may not be a car, but an apple, a piece of wood, or even some abstract 3D model that is exerted to the process of the kind described.
If you think you can solve this problem, I would very much look forward to hearing from you. The initial task is relatively small, but if the task is done well, there may be more of them. By the way, I prefer hiring using Upwork.
