Oh, that's good... Somehow. I think we should have a graphics manager, a story manager, and  like.. a distribution guy. IDK, some way to get a little more orginization.

Looks really cool. Should make the character get that weapon when he goes farther into the game.

I'll post the horse once my own video is posted to Youtube, for security reasons. Not that I don't trust you guys, I just want everyone to know that it was my model first, so people don't think I stole it from you guys. (I know people like that, believe me)

One minute per frame, is that all?  I've done animations that take 20-to-30 minutes per frame or more, and PIXAR-quality frame renders can consume hours of render time.  That's why they have such huge "farms" of rendering machines.  In fact, there were times when I was using three PCs to render sections of an animation.  It still took an agonizingly long time, but atleast far less than it would have with only one.

There are tricks you can use --- like not renedering shadows, and/or dropping anti-aliasing --- depending on the quality you're after.  For instance, if you're just interested in checking the animation "flow," you can eliminate them both from the renders, and simply render a few spot-check "beauty shots" to make sure of your lighting.

Also, don't forget that you should be rendering out individual frames as JPEGs.   That way, you can re-do sections or individual frames after making adjustments that don't affect the rest of the animation.

Yeah, my style of rendering is rendering bits and pieces so i'm not rendering a ton at once. in my current video, I have to do that because of how many cameras it has for the different views.

It took me 26 days to render 700 frames.

That's about 30 minutes per frame on average, but some have took over an hour.

It was a little risky for me. I did all of my rendering on my school laptop, so I took it to school every day and let it continue rendering. Then I would take it home at night and hope we didn't stop on the way home.

But we are sort of taking over this thread. Back to the game project.
