Yeah, it has anim support with GI so I figured I'd use it.
There are no lights in the scene at all. ;)

Had some consistency problems with the camera's field of view.

Rendering 814 frames takes a long time too.

I have just about everything I need now, so it should show up a little later.

Having trouble uploading, somehow the same codec I used before isn't recognized.

It's done, just need to find a way to upload it.

Throw it in a zip and you should be ok Robert. If it's too large you can use a program like 7zip to break it up into smaller pieces.

Alright here's the zip... Never mind, having trouble.
Hey! The sound's gone.

h.264 codec (best I know of) in an MP4 file. (...Why is it .m4v? maybe that's the problem)
DivX player should play it, also Zune software, possibly even Windows Media Player.

Worked before with tubemogul, not today though.

I'll get it up to my various video pages soon...

There we go, it's finished.

1280x720 originally, don't know how theses sites will handle it.

Cool Robert and nice video! :banana:

Any thoughts about having the infection "wear off" after time? Or maybe a gradual change from gray to red?

Though you're probably ready to move on to another project by now. ;)

I was actually thinking about something like that soon after finishing the current build.
My specific thought was to have the particles that are infected eventually stop moving and "die".

If that's a feature request I can get to work on that. :)

Though you're probably ready to move on to another project by now. ;)

Kinda do have some things, but I still plan to continue this and eventually get more complex.
I can multitask. ;)

Looks very cool. Very similar to the C4D on youtube. Anyway..what would be the practicle us for this?

Dunno, mainly made it to gather knowledge.
I can extrapolate this into something useful though.
As it is, it doesn't have much application.

well still very cool...I really envy guys like you, jack, frootee. I can barley model much less do what you guys do. Now if I can just get a good grass gen program!!

That would involve some surface tracking, a few different models for various grass types, probability control, and possibly length/density control via image inputs.
How's that sound?

Or you can use the hair tool on the workspace side.

Alpha mapped planes has still gotta be the best way to do grass. ;)

Well Jack I can't disagree with that when you see what Parva did with his. I just think that "real" grass would look better, especially if TS is able to animate said grass.
