After a long break in my visible blender activities, I start again with joining the competition for the splash screen for the new upcoming 0.6 release of luxrender.
Besides some major refactoring and huge speedups two of the features highlighted are thin film coating and motion blur. A big ‘thank you’ to the developers for the huge amount of effort they put already in this evolving little gem.
Being quite late to create something complex I had to resort to simple things, which is a good experience.
You can see here the actual progress so far. The final entry won’t be so different.
