My previous post set all the tools that we need, we gain one week on our schedule.
But I didn’t spoke about the other tools that we can use. Most of them are freeware or free to use on the development phase. Then they represent no cost, meaning that everybody can be the new Zuckerberg.
But not really, for a game making in 20 minutes or my Pharaonic plan to conquer the world with a new industry there is a main problem. A big one.
Yes my big problem is my computer.
Bought in 2011, a NEC Laptop. The guy up is an image.
To be able to manipulate all those software, even freesource, is simply impossible.
What should I do?
Buy a new one, where to find the money, where to put it? at home?
Use a shareable computer? Does this exists?
In university yea… surely, but except as a teacher no one will let me in.
A share Office? Never heard of shareable computer????
I just don’t know?
Finally, all those software need graphic cards, serious expensive GPU, CPU.
What is made with Blender and the render farm concept can be interesting.
The first thing that come in mind is Burp.
Collaborative render farm based on the freeware Blender.
Mix with the use of assets given by the community, creazy stuff can be done.
Imagine that for the bellow movies, my computer would render an image in 2 or 3 hours.
I did all using the previously Blender, Burp, and material found on the web.
or even this one
But this distract us from our talk.
I need to instal in a computer the previously said set of software but my actual monster is just not powerful enough.
Shareable computer, where, how?
The use of cloud technology to control a computer and just convey the visualization of the screen on my computer, technically hard. And how, who will help? (But still interesting)
Do a Ulule or Campfire and try to aggregate people around the project.
Will see which one is the more feasible.
