Hi, I just finished a small animation of the spinning totem from inception, I made it just for practice so it’s nothing major but I kinda liked the result (ps. I didn’t really want to crop out the microrender watermark but it was too far away from the totem, it is still there in the video)
I rendered the totem itself in Cycles and the rest I rendered with Microrender, I was originally planning to render everything with Cycles but I couldn’t get the lighting to display like I wanted it to (with the different render-layers and such) so I decided to mix Cycles with Microrender and it worked out perfectly.
Here is the animation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzTFjwLI4v0 (available in 1080p :eyebrowlift:)
Extra note: There is absolutely no GI used in this video.
