Title: Kalintida_-_At_the_Remnant_-_Animation
Post by: Kadri on February 12, 2013, 12:38:54 am

This is a short animation of this image in the image sharing section:

The animation was a afterthought.
I wanted to feel that place a little more in 3D.

Lighting and water shader settings are different because for shorter render times.
No GI . Only fill lights were used. The scene had already 3 lights so i only placed another one to the left side. 
No transparency in water.
I had no animation in my mind at first so there are things that could certainly be improved
like the texture that works only kinda halfway or better lighting-texturing on the island and maybe slower water movement .
I have no plan to revisit it but i certainly want to hear your thoughts about this good or bad  :)

The wind sound is a free file from soundbible.com .
Video codec is xvid.
Render time per frame was between 7-14 minutes in general on my i7 2600K .
