Thanks Murambi,

so I finally did the rest. Now it's just the logo (that I have to draw by hand) and then itä's just some minor tweaks to materials (unless I forgot something else)

The key is using a format with undestructable compression (not jpeg) and high resolution.

For the synth I use a png image with 8192x8192 pixels.

Thanks guys,

ok here's the first time ever I tried an animation using Maxwell. It's originally rendered in 320x240 pixels, 47 frames. I let each frame render for 1 min = 47 minutes. I don't think it's too bad. I'll try a longer/higher quality render over night.

Really photorealistic. I'm very impressed.

I think the spin could be quite a bit slower. I think one slow rotation would show it off more than several quick ones, but maybe that's just me.

Yeah I know it's quite fast... but slower = more frames = longer render time... I was just doing a quick test with this.

Hehe no bumble bee :p I've already made a simple one.. I'll render it out over night.

However, here's a longer a bit higher quality animation than the last one. I even did my own ambient "music"

So I did the selfplaying piano movie but after uploading the video to youtube they claim I don't own the copyright for the sound (they have an automated sound/video identification) and that's true, but I search for that particular sound and found gazillions of videos with the WHOLE SONG, so how did they manage to escape the copyright? And I'm only using about 30 secs for that matter.
