here is another piece from [dbki], this is our first animation project.

some infos:

project duration: around 7 weeks

staff:	

	da_duke - models, cut

	olbi - scene setup, bone animation, textures, surfaces, lightning, rendering

	meerdattel - textures, surfaces

	schugo (d|ver) - music

	dafunk - sound effects, sync

	counter - saxophon (not included in this version but worth the credit)

software:

	lightwave 7.0b (modeling, animation, rendering)

	photoshop (textures)

	gimp (textures)

	aura 2 (cut, image to avi convertion)

	vega (sound sync)

	cooledit pro (samples)

	vdub (frameviewer, avi convertion)

hardware:

	3 dual celeron 500 with minimum 512mb ram

	2 dual piii 500/850 with 1gb ram

	1 celeron 1000 with 1gb ram

scenes:

bart animation and school - subpatch, bones, skytracer, compositing (the window)

homer animation - subpatch, bones, multiple objects

background worker - endomorph and motion mixer

marge, maggie, cashier - normal motions with bones, facial expression and hair with endomorps and motion mixer

lisa and the musicans - lisa animation with bones, all other with endomorphs

homer in the car - animation with bones, smoke with hypervoxel

bart and the bus - bart animation with bones, the persons waiting for the bus with endomorphs and motion mixer

marge and maggie in the car - animation with bones, facial expressions with endomorphs

lisa riding the bike - animation with endomorphs and motion mixer (small bug with the right food)

lisa, homer, bart in front of the house - animation with bones, homer face with endomorphs

the livingroom - persons on the couch animation with endomorphs, the whole family with bones

lightning:

normal raytraced lightning with area lights and sky tracer (sky sun), sometimes with shading noise reduction

average rendering time (on 500 mhz) outdoor around 1 - 1.5 hours, indoor around 15 - 30 min, the couch around 1.5 h

texturing:

mostly done with uv mapping, paintings with photoshop and wacom 



more facts:

frames: 2821

duration: 1:52.840

average rendertime per frame: 30 min

framesize: 720x576 with 24 bits per pixel

raw data: 3.6 gb frames, 3.6 gb video, sound 18.9 mb
