Besides running a serious business, we love watching well animated cartoons. And when Blender Institute released the first episode of Caminandes, we knew we wanted to back them up.
We allocated 50 some pro-bono servers and we gave Pablo Vazquez and his team our full support for rendering the next llama adventures. For the last month, our servers have been busy with Cycle rendering Caminandes Grand Dillama scenes. Amazingly, one day after the upload, it got over 20k views on YouTube:
The 2 min 27 seconds episode was rendered on 50 servers working in parallel and used a total of 4,5 server-months of computing power.
All the project’s work is done under Creative Commons and will be available for download on Tuesday, the 26th of November:
“Along with the short film in the highest quality format, you will get access to all the production assets (characters, environments, lighting sets), great documentation, tutorials, the software it was made on, just like in any other open movie. All this material is going to be available for purchase on the Blender e-shop.”
We’re looking forward to support Caminandes’ next episode, and hopefully we will see more of the llama survival adventures!
