some info: done in XSI/softimage, rendered in Arnold 1280*720, depthchannel in 2560*1440, comp in NUKE resized to 2560 for Dof with frischluft then down to 1920*1080, longest rendertime 3hours22min/frame, Camera-animation is one-shot (but fake in the beginning crashzoom(and short disolve) to the key,where i change the set. In the beginning i start with MR but than i have to switch to Arnold(faster better stable…) And now the production-time(no kiding)10Years! Yes, 10years,but not every day, somtimes waiting for a software-update,changing every to Arnold was also a pain(new textures,new Ligthning and so on.) Animation of the Mite took not so long (maybe 2weeks if i would work 8hours a day)
