alright I thought I would join the group and make a nice short movie/animation. I am making an animation about a great mideval/fantasy battle. this will not be photorealalistic, a good example of what I want it to be like is the first cutscene in warcraft 3. the one where the orks and the humans are charging towards each other. except mine is different creatures, more midevalish and they will actually fight.Another one of my aims is to use such scripts as blenderpeople and stuff like that for the animation. It will be about 5 minutes long and contain plenty of action I am using makehuman for the human meshes and if eku lets me I would like to use his bull model for the creatures.(but do such modifications as a lower subsurf level) I am serious about this and have made some terrain and the hero human model is all ready made and I am giving him armor and such at the moment.
here are some shots
I will have more soon but I want to know what everyone thinks. I was also thinking about trying out a different rendering engine not yafray but I have heard some neat things about indigo.
for right now I have 1 question. How should I go about making grass?
should I use the standard way with particles or is there another way to go about this? I want good quality too.
I have 2 computers that I can use with blender that are on a lan conncetion so I thought there was a script somewhere that would let me use both of these for rendering at once.
spec that I have to work with:
P4 2.4 ghz proc
1024 DDR2 4200
pentium D 2.8ghz
And here is the links to things I have mentioned:
