Asaulting the bore hole…
When I read the book I had clear view of what impressed me the most.
The scene when russian ships asaulted the bore hole. I imagined how must have it felt for a gray soldier to see those giant rotating docks , the entrance , all other soldiers and ships flying around
The best about this book and contest was that it wasn’t telling you like what to do - how did it look like etc - but it stimulated your imagination to see and image it your own way.
And this is how I saw this scene - and I’m very pleased with it
I’d like to thank all great people who helped me during my battle and reminded me that beyond every vision even the great there stands simple things like proper composition - youre great.thanks!
The idea was to make a cinematic scene - something with breadth that make’s you feel a small compared to the stone , docks and all what was going on there.
The scene was ment to be renderet at 4x4k resolution so I put as much details I could have. Than I had to animate them at lower resolution and this was the moment when things became complicated. Some shaders behaved different at higher resolution - some elements became invisible at lo res and some occured as to tim consuming.
Managing over 150 moving objects was also a big task.
It took average 22 min per frame to render
There are 160 rusiian soldiers on the scene - 1,3 mln tris
5 visible russian ship each 1,4 mln tris
stone surface & rotating docks - 2,2 mln tris
I rendered the scene animation in 2 main layers ( becouse of my machine’s technical limitations)
