Hey thanks Sporkfumaster!
You’re right, keeping it black and white will certainly be better alas closer to the movie.
Things i’ll consider (a friend gave me some input, too):
- go B/W
- make the camera shake less violent
- better bug animation (i’ll have to learn how to rig, yay! though the movement pattern of the boid particles is not ant-like … ants stop for a while and then go… )
- be better at vignetting
and for the PI numbers… i’ve thought about this, it cant just be static somewhere. I also have to add noise, maybe something like that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJRHGla_Fio in the background … also in BW. I’ll generate a texture for that in gimp or inkscape. Doing some thousand digits of Pi with blender text will be awful.
and also: i think i’ve found your lost copy of pi: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=115089427598248196&hl=en
