Daylight Simulation, Early Morning to Sunset
Early morning to sunset, 1 frame per minute from subtect on Vimeo.
This animation shows almost a full daylight cycle on a day somewhere around the middle of June. The time lapse is one render per minute, animated at 5 frames per second. It is composed of 640 renders, each of which took over 8 hours on a fast dedicated rendering machine -- which means this animation took over 200 days of straight processing time. To get it even this fast, I had to make optimization compromises that resulted in some pretty unfortunate faceting of the render mesh that shows up at different points in the sequence.
Rendered at 1080p, so Vimeo full screen should play at full res...
