hey sir, thanks for showing how you have made ur movie.
Is this the same kind of rendering they used in the movie sky captain and the world of tomorrow. The movie reminds me of the movie.
Cheers

Cheers guys!
meredith: As far as I know, most of the stuff was computer generated in Sky Captain... All action from the actors was shoot against a blue/green screen... So, yes. Im not sure which they used RenderMan or Mental Ray but I guess it really dosnt matter as long as the result comes out the way you want it!

pbman: I think my service provider has had some problems so the site been up and down... Keep checking cause it appers to work now. As far as for the HDR image you need to have Photoshop CS2 or HDRShop to view the image. Will update the HDR section in a day or two, been really busy with other stuff!

Keep it up!

You guys were talking about how to get good results for the propeller motion blur earlier . . . . I struggled with that for a while, then what I finally tried that worked was, I duplicated the propeller, rotated it so that the blades were evenly distributed, then rendered it that way. So you get good motion blur, and if you want to do a still shot, you can just make the copy invisible.

Hey!
Yeah, thats one way!
One always learn more. To get a propper m-blur for, lets say for a propeller. Increase the nr of motions steps in MR renderer to about 6-7, that will give you a really nice m-blur but can be a bit slow. Decrease the RGBA Constrast Threshold as well!
