I’ve been thinking for couple of days to try and break the ice in producing an
animation using unbiased light transport.
I’ve seen various attempts in the past, usually a couple of seconds long and
very noisy, mere tests by people at home rendered in one night.
I believe it’s possible to render an animation of a couple of minutes with
acceptable quality at ~PAL resolution using a hacked version of LuxRender
i’m working on. (i’m a luxrender developer), and some help from some
of our members, as an initial test to evaluate maybe a second attempt at
a short film. (5-10 minutes, hopefully with some renderfarm help)
I’m pretty good with blender, but i don’t have any animation skills.
So if any of these attempt happen i’ll probably be asking some animators for help.
I would like to ask if anyone can ‘donate’ a fairly acceptable animation in
.blend file which i can rematerialize, relight and render, for the initial test.
Something between 30seconds, up to 2 minutes in length (@25FPS)
i’ll credit the author in the final rendered animation.
