Hi, I’ve been using blender for about a year now to make training videos for elevator inspectors. It’s actually almost the totality of my experience, and I’m trying to find different clients, so me and my partner thought it would be good to make a free video for everyone. It’s just a short piece on how to use Firewire Target Mode on a Macintosh computer.
So what I’m trying to do is create a non-obtrusive moving background image to put the computers over. I’m trying to create something that looks like the default mac desktop image. The best way I’ve thought to sort of do this is by creating lot’s of cloth with the minneart shader and transparency that get randomly moved by a harmonizer field.
Here’s a test render. The test box isn’t receiving light, but I think the plan is to composite the computer over the background any way.
I’m also thinking of blending the whole sequence with a blue gradient to make the colors more subtle.
So yeah, it works, but I feel stupid doing it this way. I don’t know if anyone has any ideas for a better way to do this, or improvements on the way I’m doing it now?
