The weather is perfect but maybe a little too hot. Sunday there was a thick mist early on but it soon burnt off to be replaced by a heavy rain shower. It didn’t wet me as I was back having breakfast. I have a new project which is macro the movie. The sun is bright enough to stop the lens down and hopefully get enough depth of field to make it worthwhile. The miner bees are out along with a few hoverflies and grass spiders. I’ll have an hour or two playing today and see what I get.
PRIMROSES with a few Dog Violets.
For the past couple of days I’ve been playing with titles. I now have perfect sparkles whizzing round an immaculate helix but with the lettering and everything else my computer was stalling. There had to be a limit; I spent ages trying to lose vertices and anything else that uses a lot of memory like glass shaders and other esoteric things. I then had a senior moment and thought to render the lettering and lighting as one pass then do the sparkles as another. Stupid me, Rendering is basically converting 3D to 2D so it just popped the sparkles on top of the letters. I have baked the animation and that helped but what I really need is a bigger GPU. More Horsepower is required.
