@anon – depends on what you call ‘actual’. Seeing as the project is up and going now, you can download a current build and see for yourself.
General idea is to get as much functionality as we can by the Blender Conference, then refine each part in order of what we need (modelling tools – animation tools – rendering and compositing tools for example.)
@Colin – Only Dr. Roosendaal gets to do ‘Presidential’ Addresses to the community!
by ‘actual’ i was referring to an almost complete modeling toolset.. i downloaded some builds a few weeks ago, but there were lots of missing modeling tools; so it keeps me wondering how you’re gonna manage to start building the scenes with very little ported tools..
thanks for the reply
Another product of me spending way too much time analyzing stuff:
Durian girl has a whip? Could this have been a downgrade from earlier considerations for a long, pointy object to make production more doable? Colin seems to show hidden feelings of maybe dubiety toward the writing on 2.5, and raging intensity about discussing the story again (in an otherwise very positive and together attitude toward the project)?
I’m afraid that I might scare you too much, Colin, by how much I have been studying your face in this video! Gosh, how embarrassing.
Er, anyway, what I really should say is, I’m excited!
Everyone will blog about their first week of work.
And yes, we want to exclusively use 2.5 here. Only for unported features like retopo we switched back for this specific feature. Campbell and Brecht make long days tackling every report.
Excellent video. It really makes me wish I was part of this project (beyond than just pre-ordering). Sadly I don’t have any usefull skills in this environment (other than Tea/Coffee maker) I guess I’d better get to grips with Blender properly instead of playing with it and admireing other peoples efforts.
You seem to have a good friendly team together there so have fun and keep making these videos (so long as you have the time)
‘…and this is the assistant of colin’…..rofl.. that funny saying made my day …u 2 really seem to have a funny time together thats great!…
the pictures in the background are really huge …you should consider putting them up for auction after the production or make a prize game to win a sketch or just anything wich is not used anymore after the movie:)…
would be great to have a sketch with autographs of the team !
anyway hope you all enjoy your time making this movie!!!
best regards to the whole team!
