So earlier this week I went and updated the scene files for all of the sets for Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion, since they were all originally set up in Octane v.1.0. The only thing that really took a little work to fix was going back and adjusting scaling of certain textures that used scaling (since Octane 1.5 and above changed the way scaling works). I ran some tests, and noticed that my color correction was now off, likely due to ‘behind the scenes’ changes in Octane 2.0 vs. 1.0, since there was nonthing else (like camera response type) that would affect image color that I’ve changed. It wasn’t an insurmountable issue, however, as I was able to create new color correction layers that would correct frames rendered in 2.0 and make them match the already finished images. So we are back to work full time on this, but there is still a TON to do. A LOT… TONS… Just so you know. It might get quiet around here, as I’m just going to be rendering frame after frame, with no real news to share. So be aware.
In other news, I bought a new computer chair to replace this broken one. Should be arriving next week. Which is great, because this chair doesn’t stay straight anymore. Lesson learned. STOP THROWING SHIT.
Nothing new to show, so I did a quick render of Clara in her outfit in Episode 4, using the lighting rig I set up for the character reveals for Dossier 004: The Medjai Mistake. Hope you enjoy.
Here is a smaller sized sample of one of the wallpapers that will be bundled with Clara Ravens Episode 4: Colombina’s Illusion. Like previous DCV-enabled comics, there will be three wallpapers bundled with the release in the ‘bonus’ section, and each desktop wallpaper will be offered in six different screen resolutions.
Wassup, yall’s?! Here, have a frame from the comic, you jackals. As you might contextualize from the image, Clara is incredibly unamused by something Flip has just said. Wait, Clara has no sense of humor? Shocking, I know…
