Superbly animation?

  • I am still on 2014, but wondering how using Superfly for animation is working for people, and if anyone has examples of their work?

    It will take longer to render, if you want the greater IDL quality of which Superfly is capable. I highly recommend scavenging extra computers (used servers are great for this) and networking via Queue Manager.

    This is a test render of the self-lit Superfly material setup for Dystopia and John Hoagland's Viper MkII: Superfly test2- 480x320p 254f 05fps Cinepak98.mp4

    If the Photobucket MPEG4 doesn't work, try a ShockWaveFlash from Dropbox:

  • And if you're looking for cheap render drones try Ebay. Used enterprise grade hardware id dirt cheap and has the needed horse power. Look for something similar to this:

    Look for something with a Dual Intel Xeon Hex Core X5660, like a Dell Power Edge 710. Remember it's Ebay so watch your back. Be sure it includes the CPUs and the RAM. Most of them will not include hard drives. A windows COA sticker is a bonus.

    Something like this will make a killer render dummy and since they have lots of drive bays you can make yourself a network storage box on the cheap. One of these on ebay cost less than a fancy NAS appliance does new.

    Yes I'm a cheap skate.
