SWAMP. (09/12/15)

The weather does not improve though it appears the internet connection is marginally better.
The walk in the forest is getting more akin to a paddle. This is a dry bit in a rare glimpse of the sun.
Another dryish bit.
There aren't any fish or ducks........The alligators have eaten them all.

I am making my Christmas video and as is the norm when I get near Blender it's three steps forward and two back. This is quite normal so to illustrate that progress is being made here is the newest video.
I put highlights on the lettering to represent snow but as you can see they are lowlights. I never noticed until I got it uploaded. I am halfway to sorting the sparks or snow flakes. I have to use a particle info node on another something it can be any mesh body but it as to be on the same layer and out of camera view. 
It's still raining.

  1. Looks like you'll need a row boat soon. Seriously though, I hope the rain stops soon because there are people really suffering from the flooding. Good luck with the video. You have patience for sure.

  3. I hope that rain stops soon it looks horrendous on the news. However that flooded wooded area could be hiding some Woodcocks.
    That first image is symbolic, light at the end of the tunnel.

  8. Does the Ademobile float - rather like "Supercar" in that TV puppet show of long ago? By the looks of it you will be floating soon. As for your particle info node, rub some "Sudocrem" in it to make it better.

    1. YP, no it doesn't.
      I am starting to understand this job but there may be too much to learn.

  9. I love those photos, with all the watery reflections. And the nerdy card is a triumph! Can you now rest on your laurels? Or maybe they're too wet....

    1. Frances, I am only about a quarter as nerdy as I will need to be.

  12. Your Christmas video is a little odd, but I like it. In an odd sort of way.

    1. It has the potential to be odder still before it's finished.
