it took me almost a year to finish this project but i´m happy to finally show you my next little short film i was working on lately.
The film is about a living cardboard box which is tired of the seemingly perfect world he´s living in. He wants to get out of the city and experience his own adventures, giving up his security to do so.
Huge thanks to SouthernShotty and MartinKlekner who inspired and teached me with their awesome tutorials and courses for this film.
The film was entirely made in Blender and rendered with Cycles. The rendering time was about one month using two computers.
Thank you so much! Yes, the story should also remember that we often just stays in one’s imagination, but implements very little into action. But who knows, maybe part 2 will come sometime. But I’m sure he’ll still make it!
Thank you very much, i really appreciate it! I mostly used the True Sky Addon from True VFX or otherwise HDRis. I built my own little render farm at home with 2 fairly powerful computers. Then I just split the scenes up and rendered some on one and some on the other. I wrote a small batch script to automate the rendering so that it jumps to the next scene when it’s done. Tried it with Flamenco from Blender but that caused some problems with plugins.
Things like the Northern Lights i learnt in a course from Martin Klekner which I can only recommend. However, it´s a little complex because it´s implemented using different rendering levels, which are later reassembled in compositing. But not too hard. Wish you a great day!
Thank you! Hmm hard to says in general. What helps me the most is to make always something i like and not only to make things for the learning. (Except from some start tutorials.) Start with little projects like 10-20 second videos
I have not learned to animate in Blender yet… I have been exporting to another program for the animation… or… creating the animation in another program and importing into Blender. But the rendering is so slow in most cases for me.
Can you please supply the links you mentioned with regard to learning what you have done? I really would like to learn to animate in Blender. Thanks.
