It required properly customized developing systems. Some 3D sequences featured more than 30 000 000 polygons. Time render has been optimized and reduced to the max (40 000 hours accumulated).   Through «Infime», Dan Charbit (director and supervisor) encourages you to immerse supernatural landscapes and  offers a graphic and poetic travel... Get a trip away. ---------------- Depuis 2009, le studio Cut and Cook vous mijote de belles images. «Infime» est l'aventure fantastique de ses talentueux graphistes, réunis autour d'un seul mot d'ordre: le plaisir de créer des images extraordinaires.  «Infime» est aussi un défi technique qui a nécessité le développement d’outils sur mesure. Certaines scènes 3D comportaient plus 30 000 000 de polygones. Le temps de calcul a été optimisé au maximum et réduit à prés de 40 000 heures cumulées.

I'm really really grateful for all the words and time you put watching and spreading this. this brought me a success which I'll never forget. thank you and thank you! :-S #=================================================================================== First of all, I’d like to thanks everyone for watching and also those who helped with their feedbacks so it can look the way it does. A project I did in my spare time at home after work and during the weekends. I was responsible for everything, from the actual concept and modeling and rigging to the final rendering and compositing, as well as the music and sound design. Took me 3 to 4 months start to finish, the final rendering using arnold took around 12 days 24/7. My machine specs are: Xeon E5-2687 3.10 GHz (2 processors) 64 GB RAM Nvidia Quadro 6000 Softwares used: zbrush, maya, arnold renderer, nuke You can also go ahead and check out a little making of video of it here: https://vimeo.com/107398431 Please feel free to ask questions about how it's made, I'd love to also open up some sort of discussion regarding that :) wish the best for all cheers www.RamtinAhmadi.com

                    In a world first, zookeeper Rohan Cleave captured the amazing hatching process of a critically endangered Lord Howe Island Stick Insect at Melbourne Zoo. The eggs incubate for over 6 months and until now the hatching process has never been witnessed. If you didn't see it you wouldn't believe it could fit in that egg!
