JESUS rules!!! (^^,)


 - Sound
   I had major sound quality issues over the past year or so. It has been a nightmare to get clean audio! I was frustrated to the max! Everytime though, GOD did come through and I got okay audio, but there has always been a significant amount of noise - at least to the point where I couldn't remove most of i...

Hey all!

Without ado, here is the video! (Below for more details on why this way)

Genesis 1

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, November 18, 2015, In : Teaching and prayer 
Hey all!

Today I get to share with you something I was working on last year. I finished around December and can you believe it, it's almost December again, hahaha. Anyway, it is a short film on Genesis 1, the creation of everything, so I really hope and pray that it is a blessing to you!!

Check it out:


When GOD asked me to do this, I was not sure how it would come out, because I needed people characters and I was not experienced in modelling people... I of course knew about Make Human, and GOD g...

Quick tip on video editing

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, July 22, 2015, In : Tips 
Hey all!

If you have ever done any video editing with Blender's Video Sequence Editor, or VSE, then you know the issues involved with frame rates! For those who don't know what a frame is:
A frame is a single image in a sequence of images that is flashed to a viewer at a certain rate that enables you to see movement as a video. These images all flash at the same pace and the most common today are 24 frames per second (fps), 30fps, 25fps and of course, 60fps.

Now, in Blender, this causes a proble...

Yay, it's up

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, September 17, 2014, In : General 
Hey all!

The last post I did was on the other blog - about cast approx in the material options. Check it out!

Today I want to share with you something of an experiment for me - writing sound effects as well as music!
This is a fairly recent video I did for Cross Allegiance:


(Check out the rest of our videos on our YouTube channel - Editing done by Sterling C Franklin)

I was going for a spacy look with this one, because this is an abstract concept that translates into the natural. Basically, it com...

Some new additions

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, March 29, 2014, In : General 
Good day everyone!

Recently I've been able to push out work on a scale that amazes me when I look back on it and I am very very thankful to have been able to and some of these works have been added to the portfolio site.
These works cover three types:
- Video Thumbnail
- Animation
- Verse image

Granted, I did not upload everything and it only occurred to me while writing this, that I didn't, haha.

Under video thumbnails and verse images, these pieces have stood out for me the most:



Out of the video w...

Moving onto video

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, March 27, 2014, In : Teaching and prayer 
Heya everyone!

Today I get to share a recent project. Now, I'm not new to video, yet I still feel like a total amateur, haha. Evenso, I'm rather thankful with how this turned out:



While I know GOD helped me make most of what you see, I'm not the only one who put the final together, that was Sterling. I only made the pieces, he stuck them together. Be sure to check out his SCF Mobile for his programming work and Cross Allegiance.org and Djsterf.Net for his ministry work.

First Blender video tutorial, yes

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, December 31, 2013, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

This has been on my mind and heart for quite some time and I am very very happy announce that the first Blender video tutorial is up! You can find it and hopefully future ones in the navigation on the far right.


This one is like a twist on the QBT I did a while back on having multiple UV unwraps on a single object. Very simple tutorial, but this one takes it in a different angle; using a UV unwrap to twist your textures to fit your shape's goal.

I hope this video tutorial blesses you im...

A little news

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, November 26, 2013, In : Blender News 
Hey all!

For those who haven't seen it yet, the new Caminandes video has been released a week or so ago. It is called Gran Dillama. I hope you enjoy it too:



In short, I also changed the home page a bit. Before, I used images to link to the main areas of the site, but the logistical nightmare of getting those done everytime I add or change something, just makes it not worth the effort at all. So! I was given this fantastic idea:
- Remove the grass icon, make it separate and resize it
- Use actual ...

Time is very short indeed

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, August 29, 2013, In : The Gospel 
Hey all,

Over the months, I've been posting videos from various YouTube users, but since GOD told me (I believe it was GOD) to subscribe to this lady's channel, there have been some serious developments and her stuff and a handful of others, are the only ones I've checked up on what they say that have checked out with actual sources, so I encourage you with the good news here and to take this seriously.


I urge you to take this seriously and make JESUS the LORD of your life (if you confess JESUS...

Blossoms

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, May 18, 2013, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Been almost an entire work week and nothing... tisk tisk, lol. No kidding. I'm sure you are all gonna luv this one and it includes a bit of a wallpaper that you can use as well.

Today's is about Andrew's latest tutorial on Cherry Blossoms. Absolutely beautiful stuff!

Even though it is an amazing tutorial and I still need to finish watching it, I really adore the slide version he adds these days below the video. Never replaces story time though :) !

Also, I wanted to take it further than ...

Some point density testing

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, December 18, 2012, In : General 
Hey all!

I have been busy these passed few days. Not super busy, but working a bit. Still a bit under the weather, but feeling a whole lot better!

Back on point. Point density is a fantastic tool to use shaped volume, without having to use the smoke simulator. While it is very limited in what it can do ito shaped explosions and so on, it is a remarkable feature and a quite fast render.

A while back, I tried making a rocket with the smoke simulator, but it didn't go so well:



I wanted to upload the...

Remember the Ogg

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, August 30, 2012, In : General 
Hey all!

I've gotten some feedback where people have struggled to open the videos I upload and send them (not just one, so please don't think you are being singled out), so I am re-posting about the video and audio format I use.

For video and audio I use OGG (no audio on the site yet, but I'm really working on getting something up here).
To play the OGG files, you do need to do one of two things (or both):
 - Download VLC and play the OGG files with that
 - Download the DirectShow filters here and...

The 3D tutorial applies to video too

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, August 8, 2012, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

I actually thought it was obvious that the 3D tutorial applied to video as well, but apparently I thought a little too much there, lol. A great friend of mine started asking me about it and was surprised when I mentioned it's for video as well (and this guy is more educated in PC's than I am), so if it wasn't obvious to him, it will most certainly not be obvious to most (possibly not even to Blender users), so here it is:
It works on video too; YEY!

Anyway, I have been working on a solu...

What a week!! (^^,)

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, January 5, 2012, In : General 
Finally got to a lot of things this week!! I got to mow the lawn again (it's been raining a bit, keeping me from it for about two weeks) and it was great exercise! That same morning I redid most of the site's organization and I like the way it looks now. It's a lot more organized and making better use of the space. Especially the home page.

Also got to write a musical piece for one of the CA (Cross Allegiance) videos!! Really excited about it being used for the Gospel!!!

This has really been a ...

Jaw-dropping Blender animations!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, January 3, 2012, In : General 
I'm a big fan of Andrew Price, the one HE places in stewardship of Blender Guru. On one of his posts (in the lists category), he added 27 animations he thought was of exceptional quality, showcasing what Blender can truly do. After watching Lighthouse, I just had to share the entire list. Yes, I don't support all of the videos, because I have certain standards as a Christian and there are things that are unacceptable to me, so use this list at your own discretion. I'm sure you'll be able to w...

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
