  1. Maybe our Redshift guru @Winbush can help you!?
  2. The Raven (2019) Based on the poem by Edgar Allen Poe Animated by Vincent-louis Apruzzese and narrated by Michael Z. Keamy This is the longest in my series of gothic horror animations and took 2 years to complete. Most of the time was prep work, watching every previous version of the poem, especially animated versions and creating the characters and sets. The raven itself is a modified model I made for a TV she opening that was rejected by the studio. Mike and I also read and reread the poem, having long discussions about it's meaning and tone. This is Poe's best-known work and I did not want to change it or rush through it. I have a few little details I think add to the piece, like the dress on the bed with the rose showing he sleeps with it beside him and the bottle of absinthe on the table that night explain some of his behaviors. It's slow-moving but I tried to keep visual interest throughout. At its core, this is a story about a depressed dude yelling at a bird until he passes out - not much action. Animations as done with C4D V19 with X-Particles for the snow and cinder effects. I worked from start to finish in order which seemed to be the best way to keep it consistent looking. The animation itself took 7 months, about 6 hours a day. I have been animating since Super 8 and 16mm film days and started with C4D around version 6-8, I can't remember. I have produced a few documentaries, worked for PBS and was chief animator and effects person (IE - the only one) for a children's show called "Look Kool" that was nominated for an international Emmy. (Then canceled!). I also just published a book of short stories for sale on Amazon called "Indifference: Short Stories by No One in Particular".

    Welcome Don, have fun and enjoy.
  4. And seamlessly switch keyboard and mouse from one to another.
  5. Flow feature is your friend, you can copy anything from one to another and vice versa.
  6. Only thing you need is New Logitech MX Series Mouse and keyboard and you are good. I am using that setup for my Mac and windows machine and it cannot get better than that. Flow feature is amazing.
  7. I created one path Spline and then addad another Cubic splinle to follow that path. You can create any kind of shapre to follow a spline.
  8. By reducing number of polygons, light sorces etc.
  9. How did you optimize your scene? As far as I know, that plays the role when rendering with Standard or Physical, but I might be wrong. I didnt use them in a long time. Also altering Anti Aliasing or resolution can also help you. If you are using Global Illumination, Samples are also something you can adjust and optimize to suits your scene. There are many things you can do I guess, but really depends on the scene and how much you can optimize.
  10. You are most welcome. If you separate those Splines then you can alter them one by one choosing timings that suits you etc. Try and see how it goes. Dont forget to share results!
  11. Well, scene file would help, otherwise we can only guess and thats pretty much waste of time.
  12. @Rectro do you know anything about this issue? Sound very strange! I will have to dig it a bit more!
