    Hi guys

    I haven't done anything for a while so I'll take up the 1 hour challenge as it sounds fun. But the render will certainly be grainy considering what I have in mind. And I don't even know if I can make the scene to the end in one hour. We'll see.
    Rendez-vous in one hour

    OK didn't see the time flying. Pretty difficult and Blender crashed twice. So here is the scene, a bit grainy

    Hello Takeo, sorry to see you didn't get it in within the 1 hour time. That is a cool one. I hate to even say that because it didn't make it, now you have to do something else. I bet you will have no trouble at all in picking another render to do, you're good at that. Sorry. Keep trying please.....

    No problem. I'll try to make another one before the challenge ends up. It was fun anyway and it is good to do things under time pressure sometimes. It adds to the fun

    Now that is a record!

    Oh, yes: The snowmen are from Fantasies Attic, the gunbelts are Questor's old ones from free.daz3d.com, the snowballs are from sanzi_sannzi, and the building's the Village Blacksmith. Ground and sky are plane primitives; I don't remember where I got the backdrop from.

    Dollygirl, I made a list before I started, so I didn't have to fumble around for everything - like so:

    One-Hour Challenge - Showdown at the Sno-k Corrall

    Two snowmen
    Props : Porthos : MD_Snowman

    Gunbelts
    props : Questor Gunbelts

    Snowballs flying between them
    props : sannzi : MovingSnowball

    An old-west building from the pc sale in the background
    props : Village_Blacksmith

    Ground plane, Backdrop
    primitive

    Nice one rob, and in 18 minutes!!!!!! That would be a record. You had time enough to do 3 more at that rate.
    That would be a
    ENTRY ACCEPTED for the mini

    Tips for anyone who wants to try to beat that time:

    Get an image in your head, but don't be a slave to it. The original idea is just a rough sketch.

    Set up as much as possible beforehand - the aspect ratio, the image size, even the name of the file. That way, you just have to hit the Render button when you're on the clock.

    Make sure the textures of everything load before you start! (I flubbed this one with the snowmen's hats, but I was going to re-colour them anyway.)

    Do as much in an assembly-line style as possible. (I loaded both snowmen first, then switched folders and loaded both gunbelts. It would have taken longer to do it the other way.)

    Don't mess around with shadows or three-light systems - they multiply the render time by orders of magnitude. One distant light is plenty.

    I realized after I posted this is a png file. Should I edit it to a jpg or possibly resubmit?

    very nice Kismet, if you could repost it in a jpg that would be great, other than that, you are good to go, done in under an hour.

    Thanks jeeperz.

    Reposting in jpg format.

    I was worried I might have problems getting it to post and did not notice the format I was using until too late. :red:

    Why does the file type matter?

    It doesn't but jpgs are just easier to deal with sometimes

    Is Jeeperz gone? Good, now I can announce that I'm starting on my mini-contest entry and she won't be able to tell how long it took.

    My clock says 9:54 and here I go ...
