Seeing as a few obstacles have been overcome these last few days in my life, more opportunities are opening up. So as a sneak peak, I'm giving you this rendered image of another animated shot that should follow the last GIF in sequence. As soon as it's done I intend to release that as a GIF as well. I am hoping to upgrade my PC once again within the next few weeks, but I'll need your guys help to get there. It's not exactly a NEEDED or REQUIRED upgrade, but it WILL help me to get progress moving even faster and more realistic looking. I know that Octane has the ability to preview animations as I work on them, but my setup needs some more roids to get there. And having the capability to preview my animations at this quality in real time will boost/speed things up BIG TIME!
I've also acquired a dual monitor setup, but have not put it into effect because it will draw away from my graphics card and make the renders slower. If I can get a more beastly card, I can use it as the primary and utilize the cuda cores from my present card to boost the speed. Basically, I can view the animated previews on one screen and make changes on the other, at a faster speed than I am currently moving at. Plus my PC will take advantage of processing even more texture a lot faster, which will make these renders that much better.
