Flight in an "18th century" painting...

Hi, so I finally converted to DivX a short clip I made years ago (when I had not so many kids :wink: ). Even after so much time, and although it was rendered with ye olden Blender, because I have never shown it here, here we go… It’s based on this pix:
I know, there is a contracdiction between the content of the book, and the alleged time-frame… that’s OK: at the time, it was a riddle for a French Painter named “Jacques Poirier” a hyper realist painter (oil) who could make you think that his trompe-l’oil paintings were photographs… I will address that problem next time I import this file in a later blender (all the materials can be improved, so I can change my own pix for the book)…

I guess one of these days I will wake up the computer where this blend file resides,import it in the latest Blender, and make justice to these models. Finally, if I don’t die before, I will finish the uber-human project this is part of (it’s moving slowly, but I’m patient) given that God gave us only 24 h, and so many things to do beside blending :smiley: (that’s OK, it just that)…

Does any US lawyer know what are the implications of using some copyrighted music for such a short sample? Thanks. Is-it fair use? Maybe I will get rid of the music (it doesn’t add that much, only I love it)…

BTW: if you are currious about Poirier’s work
http://www.galerie-boulet.com/ select Poirier, and select his “original works” link. I find him inspiring and amazing…

Very nice work! But…
The camera mooves too jerkily, and it never rotates.
Besides that it’s great, and I love the music. :slight_smile:

lemmy: you’re so right on the jerkiness. I hope I will find the time soon to re-open the blend file to do it… Thanks for the feed-back.

Actually lemmy, on second thoughts, I know why at the time I didn’t render wiht a camera rotation: it takes so many frames to rotate (in and by itself, it’s like a travel), that it was going to make the video too big. That was before I knew of divX, so the size was a BIIIG concern.
I really meant to fly to the opening of the telescope, and I was hoping to transition to a moon view, realistically (not done yet)… I guess that explains it (I should have thought through before I responded. Oh well…
