How To Train Your Dragon, Let’s Say Goodbye To It With Smile

How To Train Your Dragon: After the Hidden World was released in North America, the rotten tomato freshness started at 100%, and it still maintains 92% freshness and has an amazing reputation. It received 98% of the high scores on the famous movie review website Rotten Tomatoes based on 205 professional reviews, and scored 7.9 out of 10 points.

At the box office, it won the best start of the series with a score of 55.52 million yuan in 3 days, and successfully broke the record of the first weekend box office of the North American cinema this year.

Let me describe the mood after watching the movie, it can only be a tear in laughter. Like the sad and full of hope in the movie, it not only makes Hiccup growth up, also teaches the audience to bravely break the fear of the unknown. As a person who looks at the How To Train Your Dragon series, I feel empathy for all joy and sadness. Ten years ago, the first time the first series of the series landed on the theater, it was amazing for thousands of viewers.

The Hiccup and Toothless stare at each other, and the carefully touched stills have become countless fans who don't become desktop wallpapers all the year round.

For many audiences, the film represents love and courage.

In my opinion, How To Train Your Dragon can become a unique animation series, but also it creates a world of crisis and fun, with a thought-provoking world view.
In other animated works, heroes and villains are usually distinct and can distinguish between justice and evil at a glance.

Human beings often represent upright justice, so the "braves" will be born; while the dragons symbolize destruction and disaster, often defined as "dragons" and will be expelled.

In the world of How To Train Your Dragon, the dragon looks fierce and fierce. In fact, it is pure and loyal. On the contrary, it is human beings. It has an indomitable, brave and good-war side, as well as a temperamental and difficult-to-communicate side.

The Vikings were enemies with the dragon for generations and were proud of the pursuit of the dragon.

No one knows why, no one wants to find out whether a dragon is good or bad, only knowing to do it according to "tradition".

It is in this sharp opposition that a miracle happened.

The legendary Loser Hiccup met a wounded dragon.

He did not hesitate to destroy the tribal tradition of the dragons for many years, chose to help it, and even tamed it.

One person and one dragon establish a friendship that spans the race.
Hiccup also gave the dragon a lovely name, "Toothless"

At the same time, he also realized that the dragons in the world are not all evil. There is no need for humans and dragons to fight for you.

Is it possible to create a world where people and dragons coexist in harmony and understand each other?

And what is the relationship between man and dragon?

This issue runs through the beginning of the How To Train Your Dragon series and leaves a lot of places for the audience to think about and to relish.

If the first two parts, Hiccup and Toothless are from "taming" to "comrades", then the story of How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World makes me completely forget the word "taming".

The film is overflowing with the warmth of companionship and the courage to grow.
Hiccup, who was weak in the past, has become the chief of the tribe.

He led the people to govern the "Berk Island", the hometown of the ancestors of the past dynasties, and lived a life far from the world.

Moreover, not only is Hiccup growing alone, but Toothless's growth is also significant.

It is no longer an existence that is considered a pet, but an independent individual that is trustworthy and worthy of dependence. Its friendship with Hiccup is based on equality between the two sides. At the same time, the tribe and the dragon also turned the enemy into a friend and lived in harmony.
They will travel around the world to save the dragons captured by humans.
The film presents an equal and friendly atmosphere between the person and the dragon, which makes it difficult for the dragon to change from a spoiled or mysterious label to a living "person".

Berk Island became a utopia in which the dragons live, but hidden threats are everywhere, on the one hand, humans outside the island are still hostile and fearful of the dragons; on the other hand, Berk Island's target is too big, there are too many dragons on the island, and they have long been eyeing the Dragon Knights.

There is no shortage of cool professional and unscrupulous guys in the Dragon Slayer, which is likely to pose a huge threat.

Nowadays, the island is not safe outside the island. If you want to keep thousands of dragons, you can only find a refuge where the map is not marked.
Hidden World.

This place only exists in myths and legends. It is said to be at the end of the world and is also the place where the dragons originated.

Once you find Hidden World, the dragon on Berk Island will be properly placed.

However, the beauty of Hidden World also means that the returning dragon will not return to the human world.

Have Hiccup and Toothless, who have been with each other for many years, finally have to leave each other?

The story is set to this, the world view is shining again -

It can be said that the most touching part of the whole series is to accept, is to explore a theme of "crushing prejudice, tearing off labels".

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World re-emphasizes the theme.

In the film, all the dragons were born in "Hidden World". From the source, they are not our world, but the "guests" from afar.

They are actually full of personality, master very complex language, and have emotions of emotions, anger and sadness...

People in Berk Island know that they are not terrible and can live together in peace.

For humans outside the island, these natures are irrelevant; many people refuse to communicate with this mysterious creature, simply rudely classifying them as "heterogeneous" and classifying them as "aggressors."

From this point of view, isn ’ t the way in which human beings treat the dragons in the movie is the epitome of the attitudes of the masses in the real society that treat marginal groups, special groups, and dissidents?

Color discrimination, geographical discrimination, gender discrimination, and prejudice caused by the gap between the rich and the poor, different living habits, and different occupations.

Behind all discrimination and prejudice, there is arrogance hidden.
These prejudices will not only escalate the conflict, but also make it more horrible.

In the movie, the humans regard the dragons as deadly enemies and consider them to be evil and devastating. The concept of "the evil dragon must be removed" has been passed down through generations and rooted in the hearts of the people.

Fortunately, Hiccup appeared to break the deadlock between man and dragon.
But why is Hiccup?

The reason is not complicated -

Because Hiccup is also a "heterogeneous" in the eyes of the people.

He is the son of the most brave patriarch of the Vikings, but he is physically weak and slow.

Everyone thinks that he is a waste, has no value, and even he himself is so sure.
Because the body will pass the pain that is not accepted by everyone and cannot be self-identified, the kind Hiccup will try to accept Toothless who has been hurt by the world as a "dragon".

They are also weak and helpless. In this world full of dragons and violent brave, it is difficult to support.

Being able to be a partner, perhaps seeing his own shadow in the other side.
On the other hand, the tribes who have always advocated the use of force and physical strength, witnessed the talent of Hiccup's taming dragon, and his ability to strategize, also showed a convincing acceptance.

Even after Hiccup was still not strong enough, even after lo sing a leg in the war, the tribe no longer made fun of him with physical defects.
The Berk Island people are actually growing up and learning to communicate with people who are not similar to themselves.

In most cases, communication and acceptance are not easy, and even cost a lot –
Hiccup's partner with Toothless means that he is likely to be an enemy of the tribe, even with all mankind;

Berk Island is the world's dragon, and it may be regarded as a "devil's lair" by the world. The people will be treated as evil devils.

Fortunately, the film always has a goodwill.

It allows each person to be willing to let go of their arrogant, understanding other people's roles, and ultimately achieve self-worth, but also tell the audience:

Follow the sound of inner integrity and listen to the voices of all kinds of individuals in the world.

They are not terrible, maybe they are so cute.

The ending of the How To Train Your Dragon novel is that all dragons return to Hidden World and completely disappear from the world.

However, after being adapted into a movie, the masters gently presented the audience with a blank of fairy tale.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World continues the past style, with many relaxed and humorous plots and brain-opening scenes, but my favorite is also the most impressive, always the details of getting along with the dragon.

Hiccup teaches the soothing bridge of the Toothless sister, the brave gesture of Hiccup and Toothless, and the last hug of Hiccup and Toothless...

I remember that when they first met, Hiccup tried to touch Toothless, but he didn't even have the courage to look at it.

Nowadays, they all grow up, learn to accept, and understand: our hands, in addition to work, battle, and one of the greatest functions - hug, isn't it?
Go hug the one you love, what you feel is the temperature of this How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.

Metaphor in Alita: Battle Angel
Metaphor in Alita: Battle Angel
On February 22nd, the film Alita: Battle Angel was released in mainland China. The film was adapted from the sci-fi comic book Gunnm published by the cartoonist KISHIRO YUKITO in Japan in 1991. The original work not only has a great historical background, but also has a story about in-depth discussion of human nature, memory and social issues. As the leading cloud rendering services provider, Fox Renderfarm, will analyse the metaphors behind the film. We haven't read comics. It's said that the film' s reproduction of the film is very high, but we can be sure that the adapted film is a success. The humanity, society, and future issues discussed in the film are not 20 years old. We feel outdated. Alita's Movie World: A Real World Mapping The story takes place in the post-apocalyptic era after the collapse of the 26th century civilization. After the Battle of Heaven, there is only one Sky City left in the world: Zalem; there is only one city left on the ground: Iron City, where the survivors gather around the world, humans and mechanical reformers live together in the abandoned Iron City below Zalem, looking forward to we can go to Sky City to live. In the world of Alita: Battle Angel, there are also three spaces like heaven, earth and hell. The highest level is the sky city Zalem, the middle is the Iron City where ordinary people live, and the underground is the devil's residence. Nova, who is in charge of Zalem' s supreme leader, is full of eyeliners in the world and seems to know everything. Through the organization and shackles on the ground, the factory and Vector, the rules of the earth to rule the world on the ground, and even the underground demons are under his control. In order to maintain the stability of the rule, the factory does not allow Iron City people to have weapons that can threaten Zalem. Those who break the law will be rewarded and be chased by bounty hunters. It can even be said that people will not even have the idea of "resistance". Everyone is involved in the maintenance of this evil system, and resistance is only a very small number of people. Such a well-conceived movie world is quite a taste of political fables. In other words, political fables are one of the foundations of science fiction movies, and politics (human rule) is a metaphor for the rule of God. So a good science fiction movie is more or less looking for God or the kingdom of God. Although the film is not burning, the narrative is not complicated, but the world view constructed by the film is quite complete. We watched this movie twice. The film does not construct a new world. The scenes, humanity, rules, and worldviews are all moved from our world. Perhaps the key to sci-fi movies is not to build a lame world, but to hope in the real world through futuristic language, to explore the future, but to open up the desires of the people and explore that real and reliable hope. In this world, human beings are like a "junkyard" with no trust, no virtue, and a weak flesh. People are disappointed with the real world. Entering Sky City life has become the only hope. People trade through the black market, earn hunters' bounty, participate in the mobile ball contest... and win the opportunity to go to Zalem at any cost. Seeing their determination to dream, looking at Zalem every day, meditating on the future in the sky, we feel embarrassed. In contrast, my hope for heaven is so weak. Science Fiction Movie: Futurism? Still Realism? From the movie category, this is a sci-fi movie, maybe it can be labeled with action movies and romance films. Of course, a mature story will not only discuss one problem. Some people say that the plot of this movie is very old-fashioned and illogical. The protagonist has a thick aura, a single love line, and a narrative. If you just think of it as a science fiction film, you can't tangled these details, but from the perspective of science fiction, this Alita: Battle Angel is not too surprising. Interestingly, however, if you look at the film from the sci-fi category, you will find it very different. We have to admit that this Alita world is like the world we live in. All good movies and stories have realistic meaning and humanistic care. Science fiction films are no exception. Of course, this is only my personal opinion. Instead of Alita: Battle Angel is a science fiction film, we prefer to think of it as a film combining realism and romanticism with special effects skills. So a sci-fi movie like Alita: Battle Angel, futurism is the carrier of narrative, realism is the connotation, responsible for the essence of the narrative. Of course, the main attraction of science fiction films is futurism, which cannot be ignored. The New Yorker magazine commented on this: Alita: Battle Angel's futurism is far more substantial than the world of Ready Player One. My views are roughly similar. In science fiction movies, the two should be equally important, but for those who watch movies, perhaps more important is to see the reflection of the real world. Prototype and Metaphor of the Science Fiction World We don't know if the setting of the movie world is unique. All the characters, events, and scenes remind me of the world of biblical revelation. Alita represents justice against evil. She is the only survivor of the Fire Union, carrying the task of defeating Nova to destroy Zalem. Perhaps the battle of three hundred years ago was the encirclement of human evil forces? Although the fire union defeated the end, Sky City has only one left, but from the situation three hundred years later can also see the post-war Sky City tightening of the ground control, and even the Fire Union is portrayed as an enemy. In the world of Alita, she is the "savior", not only the evil, but also the "redeemer" of the people around her. For example, Dr. Chiren's transformation, she was extremely selfish in Nova's eyes, unscrupulous for the purpose, but was demoted by Alita and withdrew from the evil camp. And Hugo, his freedom from accomplices to conscience, is the result of Alita's redemption. High-quality sci-fi movies are more or less in the discussion or interpretation of the theme of salvation, which in turn is related to the achievements and depth of the film. What is really powerful for Alita is her essence. As Nova said, this powerful power does not come from her body, but from her heart. The ability and memory left by the "previous life" have been leading her, and the battles have gradually reminded her of her identity and mission, and finally remembered everything after her "resurrection." The most crucial battle in the movie was a battle between Alita and Grewishka at his home. Before entering the underground, Alita smeared the cheeks of the stray dog that was murdered by Grewishka and repeated, "I can't stand by in the face of evil." In the underground battle, Alita almost died for a lifetime. Finally, with the help of Hugo and others, he escaped from the clutch and his body was completely destroyed. Then, Ido changed his mind and put Alita on the body that matched her strength. This is the rebirth of Alita and the resurrection of the dead. Really changing the people around Alita is also Alita after the "resurrection in the dead." This crucial battle made Alita "fall in the underworld, better than death", but when he came back, he had the most powerful ability in the world. Hugo, in my opinion, is the first supporting role, and his relationship with Alita also constitutes the main clue of the film. If the father-in-law Dr. Dyson Ido brings Alita into the world, Hugo is the one who really accompanied and led Alita to grow up. Hugo was originally a street gangster, specializing in robbing the parts of the man (semi-robot) and selling it to the black market. Until one time, Hugo and his partner were hired by Vector to dismantle Kinuba's powerful new weapon. But this claws happened to be in the hands of Grewishka by Dr. Chiren, and Alita's life was almost in the battle of the underground. Hugo is condemned in his heart, and the transformation begins here. Hugo then worked with Vector again to scam Alita into the arena and enter the almost dead trap. Perhaps Hugo didn't know Vector's conspiracy. He only played the role of Judas. After seeing the conspiracy, he decided not to do anything for Vector, and then completely repented. At the end of the film, Hugo said the last sentence to Alita before he died, "Thank you, save me." Obviously, he refers to the awakening of his own soul (conscience). Spiritual awakening is the highest level of salvation. Of course, other characters are also worthy of analysis. This is a group of poor people, wandering, but dreaming of going to heaven, just like us. Conclusion Perhaps Alita: The Battle Angel team didn't put too much energy into polishing the story. The narrative was relatively peaceful, there was not much tension, and the plot transition was more common. The old-fashioned ending seems to also reveal the hope of the people in the real world. In fact, what they really need and really pursue is not in Zalem, just as Dr. Chiren finally said when he rejected Vector. Zalem is only a desire in the human heart, and the biggest one. The essence of this desire is to escape from reality - from the control of God, into the sky city to replace God (or sit with God), the result of this desire is to perish, no one has escaped. The film itself is not that important, but the reality of care and transcendence pursued by the film is worthy of repeated chewing.Fox Renderfarm hopes it will be of some help to you.

As the leading cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm will continue sharing you how to make dogs in *Togo*.- 3D Tutorials: How to Make Dogs in Togo (1)")- 3D Tutorials: How to Make Dogs in Togo (2)") The digital environment in the filmWhat we mentioned above are all about the production of CG sled dogs. There are many natural environments in the film, some of which are fully synthesized digital landscapes, and some are enhanced effects after real shots in Alberta, Canada. The two main scenes are Wheat Kinley Mountain shooting at Fortress Mountain, Alberta, and frozen Norton Bay shooting at Lake Abraham, Alberta.!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -0Real shot material 1. Shooting across a frozen lake in Alberta, relying on a lot of roto to completeThe reason why I chose Lake Abraham in Alberta as the location for shooting the unstable frozen lake is that the blue ice here is very clean and clear, and the place is large. It's just that the weather on the day of the shooting was not very compatible. Two days later, the lake was covered with snow. Fortunately, the production team took a lot of reference photos within these two days.Nearly 95% of the shots are related to the sled dog and the owner Leonhard Seppala. To facilitate production, the entire sled team, sled, protective gear, fur, clothes, and Leonhard Seppala's hair need to be rooted separately, taking into account the sled dog body behind the team The cold atmosphere is stronger than the sled dogs in front, and the roto has to be created in layers. A real shot of sled dogs, replacing the environment and enhancing the atmosphereUnder normal circumstances, it is sufficient to project the roto layer on the character's body trajectory or vehicle trajectory and then superimpose on it, but at this time the hair details are very complicated. You need to project the roto on the card, build a sled system as a card binding, and then add Each layer of particle FX, snow, atmosphere, etc. In addition, the snow and ice produced by the sled and sled dogs flying forward are simulated in Houdini and filled with some 2D elements.!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -5Real shot!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -2Final shot 2. Cracked iceThe design of the ice-breaking lens is very complicated. The live shots were taken on a flat ice surface, so some ice flipped shots can only be done in full CG, while those non-CG shots used a method of destroying the lens track to make the ice surface look more" be more active, limit it to the range that does not destroy the parallax, use 2D techniques to constrain the fixed camera on a floating ice cube, or move the camera on the ice material, add 2D floating, and make the effect look less stable.Moreover, the material itself was shot on a flat ice surface with different light, and the lighting conditions are constantly changing with time. Therefore, the material of each version is different. It is necessary to keep these materials consistent and guide the ice surface. Fragmenting piece by piece is also a long and complicated process.!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -5 3. Simulate huge ice cubesIn the sequence of the sled dog team crossing the frozen lake, huge blocks of ice will gradually rise as the ice surface breaks. The production team used procedural methods as much as possible to guide the shape of huge ice cubes. When there are a large number of huge ice cubes, there is no way to bind each piece individually, and it is impossible to carry out carving, texture, and appearance development processing on each piece. This will limit its shape and size. Once you want to make it If you modify it, you have to go back to the previous step and recreate it. So they created a new Cascade system that allows the layout department and the environment department to create huge ice cube layouts on a shot-by-shot basis.The Layout department created a very basic proxy shape in Maya and used Maya's curve tool to draw a huge ice shape, stretch it, place it in the scene, add binding constraints, and set up rough animations in the floating ocean.The environmental team has created a very practical toolset that can procedurally model huge ice blocks through basic geometry, generating broken edge details, internal bubbles, cracks, and faults in the ice layer. With the help of new tools, the work of the production team is basically all day shooting during the day and farm rendering at night.!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -17If you need to change the size or shape of the huge ice cube, go to the Layout link to redraw the curve and give it to the next process. The visual effects link will also simulate the interaction between huge ice cubes and water, including details such as bubbles and splashes, and finally, render in Clarisse. 4. The environment of other mountains!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -11!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -25In the film, the growth of Togo is described in the form of memories of Laosai, part of which takes place among the mountains. The production team took a lot of very beautiful mountain views and modified them on this basis. For example, when shooting in Fortress Mountain, Alberta, the director thought the environment was good but there were too many trees, so some processing was done in the later stage. For another example, in the shots of the settlers' houses, there are no Alaska mountains in the real shots, and they need to be added later.!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -8Real shot!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -14Final shotWhen designing the background, compared to the cumbersome work of drawing a large number of digital landscape maps, the production team adopted a 3D method that combined digital high-modulus, lidar scanning, and photogrammetry technology.In the end, the mountains that we saw close to the lens were sculpted, textured, and look-dev processes were completed. There were also some Clarisse renderings of trees, leaves, and rocks. In general, there was indeed a lot of background work that needed to be processed.Above is the information about how to make dogs in *Togo* brought by Fox Renderfarm.

As the leading cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm will continue sharing you how to make dogs in *Togo*.- 3D Tutorials: How to Make Dogs in Togo (1)") The Dogfaces System for Sled Dog Facial CaptureIn order to produce the final version of the sled dog animation, DNEG also explored the dog's motion capture and spent time developing the Facial Action Coding System (FACS) system specifically for the face of the sled dog. 1. Research and development of sled dog motion captureIn the early stages of production, DNEG used well-trained sled dogs for motion capture in Animatrix Studios. We usually see actors wearing professional clothing for motion capture. This time the same process happened on sled dogs. The way the equipment is worn and how to set tracking marks on the fur is very technically challenging. Although these motion capture data were not used in actual production, it was still a good learning experience for the production team in the future.!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -20 2. Research and development: dogFACS systemIn order to have a detailed understanding of the facial muscles of sled dogs, and to clarify the working direction of facial binding as soon as possible, DNEG also started dogFACS research very early. Since there is a human face-catching system, there can also be sled dogs. The researchers categorized all sled dog expressions, and drew facial expressions based on the dogfaces system, including "mouth raised" and "wrinkled nose". For example, a growl is "upper lip lift", "wrinkle nose", "wrinkle lips" "The expression of these three actions combined together. Facial control schemes based on these expressions can enable animators to activate or counteract individual expressions, thereby creating more detailed and believable animations.!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -15DNEG’s binding department has re-developed the entire four-legged binding system to simulate higher standards of real performance, including a new front leg module, which has the function of “fixing limbs” so that animators can imitate most animals. The fixed state of the front leg when the weight is on the leg; the reconstructed spine setting is also included to improve the realism and function of the animation. In general, the binding process requires a lot of effort. It is necessary to work closely with the animation department to develop and improve the four-legged binding standard, and always draw inspiration and direction from research references. 3. Roaring timeThere is a scene where a little partner named Ilsa in the sled team roars at Togo, and Togo immediately subdues Ilsa. Please note that the seemingly real performance here is actually a CG shot.!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -13In the actual shooting, the dog handler used a "snarling device", which uses a rubber band and a prosthesis to open the sled dog's mouth. It is said that the sled dog who plays Ilsa is very docile and very coordinating with the whole process, but its eyes and constantly wagging tail reveals its extremely happy state, and it doesn't look angry at all.!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -7Real shot material!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -24 The effect after replacing the CG headThe production team decided to use a real shot of the body + CG head to solve it, and designed some conceptual images of the sled dogs being angry and fierce. This production process is very challenging for riggers, modelers, and animators. They need to accurately grasp the subtle facial animations of sled dogs, and Ilsa's head production is more detailed and precise than Togo. After all, the lens is mainly In performance Ilsa.!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -10Real shot material!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -26Final shotThe most useful part of the dogfaces system is this close-up shot of Ilsa's rant. FACS expressions and mixed expressions are linear, while the sled dog's mouth and nose can be moved at will. In order to have the authenticity of proper micro-motion, the production team added many small details next to its nose. It is said that when the roaring scene animation test was shown for the first time, it was played side by side with the real shot material, and most viewers could not see that it was fake.!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -16Real shot material!3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -4Final shot 4. Sled dogs skating on iceThere is a plot in the film. The sled dog team braved the snow and cold to cross the unstable frozen lake under the leadership of Togo. When they returned, the ice surface was torn apart, and the sled dogs were moving forward quickly while their feet were slipping. !3D Tutorials How to Make Dogs in Togo -18The DNEG team also began to find some materials on the Internet about sled dogs slipping or falling, to provide a reference for finding the unstable feeling of sled dogs standing on the ice. These materials will be put into the rough cut of the animation processed with Time Editor to create a suitable effect for the overall shot like building blocks, and also help them determine the performance of the sled dog in some specific shots. From the perspective of animation quality and details, this method should belong to a relatively advanced blocking. 5. Animate multiple sled dogsThe above-mentioned ice skiing. In addition, there are 11 sled dogs in Togo. The behavior of the sled dogs in the team is different from individual performance. For this reason, DNEG has developed a binding system to determine each The distance between the sled dogs in the team, if the distance is too far, part of the system will be displayed in red. Although this system is not super accurate, it can still provide the team with an approximate range.The production team carried out some layout development work when processing the animation, set up many different cycles and different speeds for the state of the sled dog action, and input them into the binding system so that the layout effect can be freely switched and loaded before loading The method of setting animation after binding is much more convenient.The Layout department can set up the sled animation according to the selected sled dog sport Cycles and speed while ensuring the work efficiency while achieving the authenticity of the effect as much as possible. It seems that this part of their work is also very convenient.Now follow the fast and TPN-accredited render farm, Fox Renderfarm to the next part: 3D Tutorials: How to Make Dogs in Togo (3)").
