Rather than make a new topic I should just keep all my queries to this thread. So here comes another one;
I'm working on making a short animation clip (roughly 45 seconds) and I'm currently in the modelling phase. Right now my character (a robot) has:
It's roughly 80% complete and everything is still in lambert1. Rendering at 640x480 software production quality ranges from 5-15 seconds. From that, I'm theorizing that the animation would take 30 seconds to render each frame so it's pretty much 45 x 24 x 30 = 32400 or 9 hours of rendering time if I used the model for the entire duration of the animation. Would this be a good guess?
For color, it's going to be pretty much lambert and a couple of Blinns here and there and it looks like I'll have about 15 or so textured polys.
