Re: Cutscene Upgrade [RELEASE: EndGame (FS1)]
Lt. Ash's animation is complete! There are a few things to fix/have already fixed.

One major difference in the overall animation is that I didn't bother matching the roll/sway of the Apollo. I just set the model to a random orientation over time (probably the same thing :v: did). So there are some differences in general rolls and sways of the frame because of that. But that's OK. I'm not going for a perfect frame by frame remake. (Rendered at 240p for now)

Wow, once again the crown is hoisted for all to see.

Though I do see some clipping in the eyelashes during one of eye Ash's close-ups. 2:04. Other shots kinda look like they were clipped too, but this one showed the process. Didn't notice until, like, my third time watching the video though.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade [RELEASE: EndGame (FS1)]
You're definitely right about the clipping in the eyelashes. Later shots have it fixed. I just didn't re-render the older shots.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade [RELEASE: EndGame (FS1)]
It's still nothing compared to the frightening eyelid clipping going on in the original. Those close-up shots did not even remotely hold up over time. :p

Is Ash judging us in the precipice of destruction?

Fantastic! one thing tho, the camera motion seams a little forced, like moving then stopping instantly, probably just because it's still a WIP. And maybe it's just me, but wouldn't it have been better to fov zoom onto ash's console then move the camera towards it?

Don't take this the wrong way, This is fantastic work. I'm just trying to give some constructive criticism.

Thanks to the help of an "HLP Render Farm" here's a preview with the new Lt. Ash content in HD.

I'm really happy with the animation overall, personally. There are some other things I might change. We'll see.

Re: Cutscene Upgrade [RELEASE: EndGame (FS1)]
It's looking like I'll have the Comm Officer scene animated by the end of tomorrow. I'll then go out of town for a few days and set both scenes to render with higher quality settings. It takes quite a while to render these.. however NGLD set up a way that we can have an HLP Render Farm! It's already been used a little. If you're interested in offering your cpu cycles (you can join/leave the farm as you desire), catch me on Discord and we'll walk through getting you setup.

Can you also donate GPU cycles?  Just seems odd that a render farm would use CPU cycles (I know nothing lol).

Re: Cutscene Upgrade [RELEASE: EndGame (FS1)]
The hardware used depends entirely on the renderer used. I'm using Mental Ray which is a CPU renderer that comes standard with 3ds Max.
