The Ian Report #472 – The Week of Awesomeness!
Nov 2009 09

Ah! This is turning out to be a crazy awesome week.

I’m finally hitting an animation groove, where stuff is actually turning out how I want it to. Render, send to render farm, composite, repeat!

Also; Awesome News! (More exciting for me than you, I promise)—I found this tutorial utilizing this awesome script to export blender camera motion to after effects! I’ve been waiting for somebody to create this for years! Before this, I had to actually render out a grid (or array of dots) out of Blender and track them tediously and innacurately in After Effects—a process which frequently required hand tweaking to look right. It’s a process that’s taken up dozens of hours of my time, and it’s awesome to now have a faster/easier/more-accurate method!

Nate Taylor’s animation turned out awesome when rendered—and he’s pumped for the next shot (involving 3d motion tracking of an aerial plate!!!… I’m pretty pumped, too).

Peace!

p.s. – Just for grins, I created a breakdown of one of the simpler VFX (visual effects) shots for the film. If this kind of thing interests you, click here.
