View Full Version : hypervoxel sprites :/ got some questions

06-04-2006, 08:15 PM
hi, I've been modeling a night scene and It took me ages to find the "perfect" sprite hypervoxel clouds :O

initial renders all look great so I started rendering the movie... However I did a preview of the frames so far rendered and it showed the clouds with a flickery animation. I'm not using any envelopes on the hypervoxels só theres no variation in time of any textural parameters. Only used gradient textures in those sprites (besides the hypertexture itself)

Any advice on how to correct this? it a couple of frames before I see results so I though I'd ask the pro's here first (thinking it might be a very common error which happens all the time)

And perhaps how to make all the sprites "behave" surface-wise like big clumps instead of individual particles? Basically any tips in how to make these more cloud like ;)

I've uploaded the file movie clip -1MB- u can download it from the below link:

Can't understand why would you have such problem since I've just logged out of deviantart and clicked on the link and it worked :(

btw if anyone knows a better place to dump videos and pictures that mantain their size fell free to share :) (tried photobucket but they reduced the video quality until I couldnt even see it)

Just throwing this out, but I've had some luck with eSnips.com. Free, you get 1g of space, plus it has some nice features if you have multiple computers.
