There are some pages where everything just goes right – all the poses I had in mind turn out even better than expected, I find all kinds of extra poses that work really well during the progress, I tweak some bit of dialogue so it’s even stronger and renders and background match up perfectly, and it’s all bright light and scorching sunshine and I can only gaze in awe at the splendor of all my things bursting into flames. uh.. where was I going with this again..?
Anyhow, after spending some two hours of trying to convince 3ds to import the cathedral square amidst the obj importer complaining about it being too large and complex which finally ended by 3ds eventually desiring to devour all memory whether permitted or not and thus swallowing Windows whole while at it and crashing spectacularely to the point of my needing a reboot.. I promptly took notice that this was destined to be one of those pages where everything goes wrong instead.
As nice as it is to render the background along with the characters.. there’s an amount of trouble where it ceases to be worth it, even when my choices of backdrops is.. limited.
