A formal animation project on recently acquired assets | WIP

A simple (and yet professional and cute looking so I find) animation recently undertaken. While as well meant for fun watching, the animation story themes around the goodness of God. This is a more formal animation project on the recently acquired humanoid assets. More on the project on the communication post https://communications.likechrist.co/2019/09/12/the-first-formal-animation-on-the-humanoid-assets/

The first formal animation on the humanoid assets

Sample video clip here: https://videos.likechrist.co/2019/09/12/a-formal-animated-clip-on-recently-acquired-assets-wip/ A simple (and yet professional and cute looking so I find) animation project recently undertaking. In continued concern of aggravated render time for higher resolutions, I thought I would try this one render engine that the 3D software used features. It is said to be less realistic looking but I find it quite complementary for these assets. I recently realized that the city assets used on the test animation for Read more…

Committing to debug all published games first

I have just managed to get the PC version of the 3D city driving game (mentioned here) onto a fairly usable state and expect to publish it right away. I am not sure if I should compile an Android version first. Especially since the PC version may be a little heavy for some low-end on board graphics chips. But I am otherwise committing to try and debug all published games prior to undertaking a new Read more…

Alms expected to get the first marketing campaign

After months of working on the likeChrist web infrastructures, I have yet complete the basics on generally all domains (subs and main included). With a fair amount of general cleanup, proof reading, page edits as well as feature integration/modification work still pending. The Alms platform is however a lot usable at this point and can now quite fairly serve both giving as well as needy saints. I in fact have deliberately spent a lot more Read more…

The Wendy version of the Lord’s Prayer | WIP

Video note: As with the George clip here, this is a newer ‘Wendy only’ version of ‘The Lord’s prayer’ animation published here. Project notes: I have just this rendered out and have yet to compile the combined version thereof. This was as well rendered on 480p on this one cloud render service that recently offered support for multiple image rendering (after I had only found it to offered single image render at the time). Each Read more…

Settled for likeChrist.co for the time being

After some earnest comparisons, I settled for the .co TLD. As I journal this, I am about 30% through the actual files migration process. While the URLs and their respecting SSL certificates are already functional. Being something I do not do very often, I run into frequent dead ends requiring prior research or refreshing breaks. Working about a stretch on overall progress (been around two days now). The domain name and SSL certificates were secured Read more…

Domain hosting plan finally upgraded

As noted here, I already had reasons to believe that the hosting plan then at hand could use upgrading. But I did not expect to hike resource usage just by carrying out modifications. Which should also explain why I first had to suspect poor signal – until I had to access the control panel (cPanel) and found that the CPU usage peaked to 99% (100% at one point). Coming to think of it, I certainly Read more…

Betty’s disconsolation reattempted with new assets

Video notes: This should essentially be the same test animation published here (reattempted with the newly acquired humanoid assets). Project notes: Being still a test, not much effort was made animating these newer assets. I should still retry another God willing. This clip was rendered on 854×480 (with 2550 frames) and still took over 60 hours to render). Facts that aggravates the my wish for a worthier render rig. P.S. Turns out the city environment Read more…

Kids colorful tanker truck assembling stop-motion video

Video note: A Christian friendly kids stop motion animation of a colorful tanker truck assembling. Project notes: When these (a set of four) were bought for the boys over two week ago, I also so heartily wished to have them on a stop motion animation video – but this could not be easily possible as I had not gotten to designate a space for this work type ever since we left Gogo’s. Scene setup in Read more…

The Lord’s prayer reattempted |WIP

Video note: This is a newer version of ‘The Lord’s prayer’ animation published here. Project notes: Only the George model appears on this as the Wendy model’s frames are still pending render. This was rendered on 480p locally (after the AWS’ failed attempt) – and each frame took about 2 minutes. While there is much room for improvement, the clip is quite fun to watch  and that Christian safe. I feel the very models (George Read more…

Went to test out AWS’ EC2 in hope for a low cost render farm without success

After spending a day or two trying to both learn and test render using AWS’ virtualization machines called EC2, It seems I am essentially back where I started out. Of all web related setups I have had to work on, I find AWS’ setups to be one of the most challenging ones. After progressing so far as getting actual rendered frames, It seems EC2 is still not the way to go. Well this option was Read more…
