A few items to mention today. First I’ve added the dual and triple-screen versions of “Gotham (2012)” to the Members Gallery. You may notice that the lighting is a bit different from the single-screen version. This render is based off of an newer scenefile and I haven’t rendered the new single-screen yet.
I hope you like the multiscreen version! Let me know what you think in the comment thread.
I named the machine for Glorfindel’s fleet horse from Lord of the Rings who saved Frodo by outrunning the Nazgul.
Asfaloth is loaded with a brand new “Ivy Bridge” i7-3820QM (8MB Cache), 32 GB DDR3 RAM, 1920 x 1080 full-gamut display and a Quadro K2000M. Everything I need to create 3D scenery away from my desk! Noro Lim Asfaloth!
I just wanted to say a huge thanks to the Members who make it possible for me to keep my hardware current and have kept me rendering all of these years.
My next hardware goal is a swift steed to replace my ancient (5 year old) 8GB “Renderbox”. Put simply, these new machines write checks that Renderbox cannot cash. I already have the name picked out but it will have to wait until the economy improves a bit and more folks are signing up.
Multiscreen Update: I should have the multiscreen version of “Gotham” up shortly. Hopefully by this afternoon.
Want to sign up but maybe you feel leery about using your credit card to a small site like mine (you do know that I have had the same merchant bank for the past 12 years right)? Check out my “TrialPay” option. You can get access to my entire gallery for 1 month (long enough to download everything you like plus see a few new images) just by purchasing something that you may already be interested in!
I’m also plugging the company because my brilliant cousin Dan is now working for them fresh out of college. Congrats Dan!!
