Afloat by Barbecue

An amazing piece by German shop Barbecue.

Barbecue notes:

"The Setup are 3 Layers with a 7000*7000 particles wide Form. Every Form instance has also two additional layers in Z. At the end we would tweak the setup a little and let it render for 5000 frames. That took 12-24 hours on a 8 core (16 instance) MacPro. After 4 weeks we had enough footage to pick the best parts and edit the material."

Peder Norrby notes: "This is mind-blowing work by Barbecue. Warning Kids! Don't expect to create stuff like this if you are a newbie at Trapcode, these guys are super pro's. They blow my mind, and I created the software!"

Wow! That's crazy beautiful and inspiring!

Thanks for sharing the render time, 4 weeks is a lot of rainbow spinning wheels.

Hm, I just did the math on this one and 12-24 hours for 5000 frames amounts to 8-16 seconds per frame, not that bad.

(12*60*60 / 5000 = 8.64 sec)

so, the changes in speed of the form layers, was that done through changing the evolution settings or was it done through a time remap of the rendered footage?
beautiful work.

Most likely they time-remapped afterwards. That seems more practical.
