Global Ambience fun

Recommended Posts

Here's a short gig promo I created in A:M recently. I really like the Global Ambience option and parameters the software offers. Thanks to Nancy Gormezano for her posts regarding this subject. Her work is illuminating.

Great stuff! How were render times? Yes, Nancy is one of the best A:Mers in Hash-Land!

Thanks John - the render times were very reasonable - between 2:48 and 3:11 min per frame.

 

At some point I'm considering doing a Globial Ambience render of something and then bringing the frames into a paint program to add color to parts of the models in order to add some hand drawn color & shimmer and shake to the final animation. Not quite envisioning how I want to approach it. For this choreography I rendered every 2 frames. I also find rendering every 4 frames instead of every 3 gives my movements a pleasing stop-motion aesthetic, similar to the the Rankin/Bass Christmas films of the 60's.

 

Also, I was reading on the forums that the Darktree materials and SimbiontAM don't work with A:M version 18. Is that correct?

Darktrees haven't worked on the Mac platform for many years but they still work (on the PC).

 

Here's a quick verification rendered in v19Beta2.
