I wanted to share with you an incredible discovery. Rhino + Glsl Grassopper + _ViewCaptureToFile
6 seconds for this raw rendering of 10000x5000.
Original image 18Mo
The important thing to see in this image is the grass. There are exactly 6 million rectangles with a grass texture and no rectangle is modeled. Everything is created by a Glsl shader with the Grasshopper component “GL Shader”.
I still can’t believe that a simple “_ViewCaptureToFile” could produce this, and I don’t think I’ll get a better rendering with Blender’s EEVEE.
And with 6 seconds, we can imagine a full champagne video. No need to spend four days importing your model into Unreal. Even with Twinmotion, it wasn’t that good.
I didn’t know anything about Glsl and I think making weed is the “hello world” of programming shaders and my graphics card is standard for working in 3D (GTX 1080).
Bef I’m amazed!
Of course not everything is perfect, there are some things that are impossible or annoying with this method in Rhino. But voilà! 6sec and ready to work in photoshop …
