This one goes into the 'creepy but funny' category ;-)
In the spirit of Christmas and all of the exciting new features coming to us in Blender, especially with 2.8 on the horizon, I chose to put together a digital Christmas card this year, generating a 3D scan of my 9 month old daughter and animating/rendering the scenes using many of the 2.79 view-port features and "hacks" ( I was planning on using EEVEE, but it does not yet support armatures) . After the scenes finished rendering using the GLSL viewport renderer, I composited the footage in After Effects. Seamless, quick workflow. Over 5,555 frames and less that a second to render per frame. I'm loving it!
So without further ado, Merry Christmas and ROCK ON baby!
