Fully rendered my first shot... and its a disaster
So whats wrong with it? The yellow nucleuses inside don't apear to be spinning in a vortex. (Motion blur may have helpped a bit here, but rendering was too slow) Instead it looks fuzzy. The blob thats suposed to be rising just doesn't look as good as the pre vis. I rendered a depth pass, but it just takes too long to composite in after effects, so it is missing from the video. This means that it is dificult to know what to look at, and the shot itself just doesn't work. Whats worse is I din't notice this untill after I rendered it, which also to far longer than I expected. (The whole day) Whats even more worse is the fact that it isn't an overly complicated scene to render. Just three simple meshes with two simple textures. And now with only 9 days left to finish, I'm going to have to be completing (including rendering) 2 shots each day out of the 16 shots I have. I think now is the perfect time to panic.
Oh and as usual... youtube has cut off the end of the shot.
I welcome peoples thoughts, or maybe advice.
