can Blender handle 4k compositing ?
or was it re-rendering with external software ?
Yes, Blender can work with 4K footage nicely with a decent workstation.
I just checked the render properties, you can actually make 65K Video with blender so its definitely future proof there ;)
by the way here's the blog of the Tears of steel production with some more info on 4k compositing with blender http://mango.blender.org/
hi my dear friend randomguest, thank you very much for that info, i greatly appreciate it, God bless you, Hugs...
i have these spec...
now i have 2 video cards ( 4GB )
RAM 24 GB
i7 3.8 Ghz
1 TB HDD
windows 7 ultimate
i think i can, or do i need more power for getting 4K ?
btw i forgot to say that i´ll add 8 GB to my RAM
I'm pretty sure you can get 4K to work on your machine, even with more advanced scenes, of course there is always more possible and you will meet some limits when doing hollywood-like compositing in 4K ;), but even for tears of steel i think the workstations they had weren't too far superior to yours, so you should be able to handle 4k with it well :)
Hi My Friend randomguest, thank you for replying me
then... now i know i can do it, thanks a lot randomguest
yes, as long as your machine can handle it.
ehh the whole storyline and the whole theme is such ......i cant even show my family this :(
that actually holds true for all Blender foundation films so far, even for BBB that visually appears to be a kids movie.
The storylines for BBB and Sintel are unclear?
i LOVE BBB ( big buck bunny ) i love it, take a look at my avatar hehe, it´s a funny clip
i wanted to share it with you
actually of all Blender production, BBB is the best rated of all (so what it's visually appears to be a kids movie? ain't most Pixar's productions are, too?).. read the comments on various sites, forums, message boards ...etc.
i believe it's due to BBB lacks the one "cringe" factors other Blender productions have - awkward conversation(s) between the characters. while again BBB still pales in comparision with other major studios' dialouge-less shorts, it still stands out among all Blender's production.
just my 2 cents.
From what haris500 said ["I can't even show my family this"] I thought he wanted to state its not children/family appropiate. What I was trying to say was just that none of the BF films so far seemed to be appropiate for children, not even BBB that totally looks like a children movie.
I fast-forwarded through the entire thing............bad acting and bad scripts annoy me TOS was like watching a flatly translated Japanese anime or foreign film or even some student films made by native english speakers ..............u roll your eyes and say "who the hell actually says s@%t like that!?" all the way through or just plain stop watching
