The file is normaly ~4 GB [sometimes up to 8 GB] huge, itīs from the Vetri-Project (number 2024). RAM required ~12 GB, now used 6,5 GB. Arg, I donīt like these Project with the Badass-Cycles. "Meteroid" is the best, runtime: 1,5 minutes. ^^
It looks like Iīm alone with this problem.
You can take a look on this: burp.renderfarming.net/status.… Itīs great for rendering huge projects just faster as normal. BURP [renderfarming.fi is the other inactive project] renders small movie for no money. You can run huge movies, too. Problems are: Cycles and Multilayer OpenEXR.
This is so amazing. I wish I could make work like this. All of my animal illustrations are traditional works, but with how everything is becoming digital so quickly, I feel so behind. This is so inspiring!
I probably would have looked something similar to this, maybe faster by only a little, and that's probably dependent on what T. Rex was trying to achieve (stealth, speed, maybe just a nice jog). Ostriches, a two-legged creature, run on two legs alternating back and forth. I can't imagine a meaty beast like T. Rex would have ran like a kangaroo at its top speed.
I love the thought process in using muscles in the areas they count and the general fluidity of the whole construct in design and movement. That's something I'd love to get myself to the point of doing with animation and design.
As fernhw mentioned below it does feel a little too light for the animal and a little too stiff for a running animation. I know the render was made more to focus on how the jiggling work, but I think it would be more believable if you made the motions heavier, and the chest bobbing up and down with each step as I get the impression it's trying to mimic an avian with a much shorter torso (and a giant keel bone for all those muscles to power the wings! That greatly reduces mobility.) instead of countering its own weight. I think if you delayed the arm bobbing with the steps it would make it look more like teeny appendages and not an attempt to power-push on a jog! I can certainly see this kind of running for a smaller theropod or dromeosaur though.
This is purely beautiful. I love the smooth and completely natural motions, and the skin colors are very realistic. I'm rather curious how he would look covered in a handsome coat of feathers (yes, as a student paleontologist, T. Rex was indeed covered in feathers, as evidenced by recently discovered fossil imprints). No matter his covering, he is a beautiful beast! I am in awe!
