Rendering an animation takes a lot of time!!
I.e. if you have made an animation lasting 30 sek., and you've applied 24fps in the settings, inorder to get a smooth animation, KT needs to render 720 images.If it takes an average of 2 min. to render each image, the entire animation will take 24 hours tocomplete the rendered animation!The good news is that Kerkythea will do it all without you touching a finger.You can sleep while the render process is running.
To follow this guide, you need to have basic knowledge about Kerkythea, how to apply materials and render settings! You can get this knowledge by downloading our Getting Started guide,which is available at http://www.kerkythea.net
Some basic information regarding animation settings:
To get a smooth animation we recommend that you use 24fps in the Rate setting.Expert setting 23.98fps European PAL – 29,97fps full NTSCResolution should be set to 768x576You can read much more about proper video settings on the Internet.Here are some good examples:http://www.bbc.co.uk/commissioning/tvbranding/picturesize.shtmlhttp://lipas.uwasa.fi/~f76998/video/conversion/#conversion_tablehttp://lipas.uwasa.fi/~f76998/video/conversion/ We also advise you to visit the KT Forum, where you can find many resources and useful tips andtricks posted by fellow KT users.
