This week's vlog!
GOD is so good!!
- Broken legs no more
Last week during recording, GOD gave me a solution to the frog problem - that I shared with you guys. This week, HE gave me another one as it relates to random frog rotation. With the first fix - the legs remain perfect, but they can only go in one direction. The fix in the week fixed the legs and they can go in any direction. Both fixes have their place. The first one allows you to have all your frogs go in the same direction. The second one allows you to have them go in a random direction as well as the same direction. I am deeply grateful for both and I did re-render the frog scene and added it and re-rendered Moses as well (only as it relates to the final 2D composite and the 3D).
- Shot redo
For the next shot, Pharaoh has a bit of a reaction and then has a sinister stare. The first go at this shot took just over 10hours to render and I had to redo it. It was way too slow. I hated the way it felt. I sped it up and it felt like an old karate movie (don't read a recommendation there - it's not) that tries too hard. It was terrible! Abssolutely terrible!
I felt led to redo it and if it turned out better, to save over the previous one and it took a few hours and the camera just would not cooperate!
- Camera flow problem
Yeah, it was so bad it gets a special heading. On the redo, I found that when I tried to animate the camera to stick to his face, no matter what, it would insist on turning away first and then settle on his face - NOOOOOoooooooooo...........! hahaha.
GOD reminded me of a trick HE showed me years ago of tracking an object to something else. I specifically did this with the camera in an experiment, but don't recall ever using it - did this week! GOD is so awesome! Prepped me for this all the way back there! (^^,)
In the video I give you a brief overview of how to do it, so if you're interested in this trick - and I can't imagine you not being - go check it out! (^^,)
- Eevee NPR shaders v3
Yes! Finally! v3 is done! I was so tired, I didn't even want to do a v3, but GOD insisted that even after the proposal that HE wanted v3 released. So of course, I finished adding what I felt like HE told me to add and I finished the nodemaps and and and and and it is finally up! I also added a Get Involved section to make sure that people know they have full permission to code it as long as they keep it free and accessible to the whole blender community. Not a small request, but it wasn't a hard decision for us. We put in a lot to make these shaders and we want everyone else to have access to them too. It's an ungodly monopoly for me to have the need of something to such an extent and not share it. It's like salvation - I know you can be spared eternal suffering for your sin and I decide to hold that behind a money curtain - I'm looking for trouble!
Of course, shaders won't save you from your sin, but it is a means that GOD wants to show you that HE knows what you need and HE wants to make sure you get it and while you get that, you also understand that HE did a lot more than just save your project - HE paid a much bigger price to save you! HE's the ONE behind this project and HE's reaching out to the world through HIS children. JESUS THE CHRIST saves!
Know JESUS yet? GOD is reaching out to you through these videos. HE loves you more than you can imagine and wants you to know HIM. Not because HE's lonely, but because HE loves you and paid a heavy price to enable you to go to Heaven, where HE is. See, we all have sinned in some way shape or form. That makes us guilty before GOD. If you have ever said that you hated someone, in GOD's standard, you have committed murder (James 4). If you've ever looked on a person with lustful thinking, you've already committed fornication with them in your heart and you are then guilty of sexual impurity. If you were to face GOD on judgement day, saying: "I was a good person" will be a void argument, just like it would be before a human judge. GOD knew that we would have to pay that penalty and that we could not pay it, even if we tried, but sent JESUS to pay the price for us. Your sins were put on HIM and the forgiveness that is there for you was by no means cheap - the cross was not padded and comfortable, neither was the death.
But, HE was raised up on the third day (after being crucified) and finished the work so that we may enter through HIM paying the penalty we were supposed to pay, but it is only valid for you, if you accept it and live for HIM.
If that is you today, please, follow this prayer:
"JESUS, I believe that YOU are real and I believe YOU died for me and was raised on the third day for me. Please forgive me for my many sins. I make YOU the LORD of my life, full time and to fill me with YOUR HOLY SPIRIT. Teach me how to live for YOU, help me become what YOU have made me to be, in JESUS' Name! Amen!"

Have a great one!!!
