In the last few weeks, my brother (Vincent Reinhardt) and myself (Zacharias Reinhardt) were working on exsample scene for our next Blender Video Workshop called “Movie Scene Creation in Blender 3D”. The workshop will be released in October 2015 in English and in September 2015 in German. A free version of the workshop will released in the curse of 2016.

This is actually an animation, but we put a lot of effort in it, so I want to share a higher resolution still frame of it here:
Most work was done in Blender. Lighting was realised by only using one HDRI image by Greg Zaal’s HDRI Haven Teaser Pack (http://hdrihaven.com/) and also some Ambient Occlusion.
Rendering was done in Cycles, 300 Samples for the still image (render time ca. 7 h on a i7). The persons are scanned with a Kinect and the software Skanect (this are my brother and myself). Animation was realised through motion capturing using iPi Motion Capture by iPi Soft and also a Kinect.
The animation was rendered in UHD with 50 samples 400 frames (rendertime ca. 1h per frame). We scaled it down to HD, so we saved a lot rendertime and got a very good result with only 50 samples.
Here you can watch the teaser for the workshop, with the full animated scene, enjoy:
Hope you like it!
If you have any questions, let me know. Thanks a lot!
