HOT DAY, my first short animation is up. It runs for just over 5 minutes.
I made HOT DAY with Blender 2.79b, and the humanoids are from MakeHuman 1.1.1. This was shot at 24fps.
The hardware used is a Mac Mini, late 2014,
with a 2.8 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5 processor, and 8 GB of ram. Rendering was tough. This Mac Mini is now retiring, and I’m upgrading to the latest Mac Mini for my next short, which is already in progress.
Many thanks to the Blender community for their help in the forums, and many tutorials.
