just a quick test of a render i did. took 2 hours to make and 9 hours to render.
intel i5 3330 @ 3Ghz
6GB of ram
MSI twin froz 4 gtx 660
rendered in “blender render” not cycles, just got to show to can get photo realistic out of it.
great tutorial on creating a asteroid from blender guru. it what i used to make my render. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7SdmYKirLI
if you notes the camera movement is similar or exactly the same to blender guru’s, its because it is. i took the camera “rig” from the file he provide because i cant do camera motion very well, but every thing else is my work with the help of his tutorial.
