So it seems as of right now I can only do 8 hours of straight animation work before I go braindead and start to lose focus and makes mistakes... that's when you know when to call it a day or night... So I've done 2 days work so far... animated 22 shots... but none of them are finished rendering yet 0_0 This set is kinda crazy though... I'm making the film in order so this first seem has to impress you all ^ ^
Mistake I made... I forgot that when doing multipass renders with NET you have to manually set the multipass save path after doing the "save project" command to the render server... had to fix that... also forgot to add a compositing tag on all the characters so they are not affected by Ambient Occlusion... AND I forgot to add IK/FK switches on some of the characters so I had to fix that too...
TO finish the film in one year I have to do 6 shots a day... every day... I'll have an idea how feasible this is by Dec 1st... First month of production is going to be the slowest as you iron out problems and smooth out the workflow.... second month should be up to speed...so yeh... I'm excited for this new challenge!!! Once I smooth out all the workflow bumps this is going to be really fun since I already took care of everything and all I have to do it worry about the animation...the funnest part ^ ^
Also I want to add a bar graph or something here that I will update every month with the number of shots finished...you know while showing the goal... So you can see where I am in production.Brought to you by professional weirdo M dot Strange.
