Turn that table
Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, January 9, 2016
Initially, I had the horse rotating on a platform, but because of issues with the one front leg on the ground, I just attached everything else to the platform he's on and now everything is rotating except the horse, but you wouldn't know it, unless I told you, which I now did, hahaha.
Anyway, this is how the horse looks when rendered using the viewport in Blender:
This animation, as if you didn't notice, is called a turntable. Mostly these are used to show off a model. Think of it as a video version just showing all the angles in a creative way, with something like a pose - in this case a slow walk, so the mane and tail are still in place. You'll notice the greyish patch on the behind is missing, but that's only because I didn't bake that texture too - only the eyes, because while I get to show you the finished rig works, it was an experiment, to see how far I could push:
- Toon shading (not all that far, because I've worked with it
- Shadows (I have not had much success here, but you'd be amazed at how much GOD has shown me with a sun lamp, a cube and a plane - wow!)
- Outlines (specifically using the solidify method)
Each of the three aspects above have their own issues, but I'll be honest, for video, this is not yet ready for production, like Cycles and Blender Render are. Besides, this was never designed for rendering - just games. For that, it works, because it looks like a game engine. I just wanted it to do a lot more than that, hahaha.
Anyway, I'm very much looking forward to the new engine and the speed it brings with it!!
Have a great one and GOD bless!!

Hey all! I've been doing CG work full-time since 2011. GOD has been with me, supported me and taught me all the way. HE tells us to do all things as unto the LORD and that is my goal. I do whatever I believe the HOLY SPIRIT is leading me to do and it's not always easy, but it's always worth it to be obedient! JESUS is awesome!! If you don't know HIM yet, follow the link above!
