This is why I NEED a 1.6GHZ G5
I need a 1.6GHZ g5, because I am trying to create a small 5minute movie to accompant a new track I've composed in Cubase VST. These images are straight from Cinema4d which I did last night. The synth scenes are about half finished, Im adding more equipment!. When the scenes are finished I was hoping to add in my fully boned BADASS wolf to do some time-synched mixing, dancing, tripping to the music.
I say hoping, because on the synth scene, I am already down to a screen refresh of 1 frame=2 seconds without any animation. It also took just under 20 minutes to render the frame. Considering I need 30fps, Im talking about 10hrs for 1 second of animation. And what chance do I have of setting up releastic animation if I get down to 1 frame every 10 seconds? My G4 400 is lame at this. Beyond lame! And I am being very very careful to limit the polygon count (is about 10,000 at the moment)
Also factor in that I have to get said QT movie to sync with the video in VST, which is already running at 85% CPU usage (sometime in a couple of years away at this rate), and you probably realise that this whole project is doomed from the start.
But the whole point is moot, because I can't afford a G5, because Im unemployed, and have run up such a debt on Apple HW and software to achieve this little project, that I literally am thinking about filing for bankruptcy, so I probably won't have any computer in a few months.
Please Mr JOBS, I am looking for a Junior 3d position, so If anything comes up at PIXAR, then give me a shout!.
BTW. This thread is because Leonis emailed me, to find out what I did in C4D, (don't have a website yet) and because of the thread the other day, asking for people to show their work that would justify a 16.GHZ g5 (1.6GHZ gimme 70GHZ!)
