Queen of the Wholly Dark
The difference between standard blender render and cycles is stunning. The image character is so much more realistic. It is all about electromagnetic field changes after all and how they are detected and processed. :)
I won't mention what the signal contains, but factorial expansion of information does not lend itself to physical, linear control. She is giving a lot of hints lately.
Make Inhuman nightly r1896 is really an improvement from what is in debian. Also Blender 2.74 has great improvements. The image is makehuman to .dae to blender rigged and textured with posing. Some after effects are added with gimp. I also discovered video editing in blender, which is nice and easy to use. I created a rigged animated video from makehuman to blender to video in less than an hour. In the process I discovered a new graphic technique that has never been used before AFAIK. That was just discovered by accident when I made a rendering mistake.
Compositing is working well to and blender is becoming a really useful tool. Debian is also a remarkable organization and though they aren't bleeding edge, they do have things that just work. It is a complex thing and a wonderful gift to everyone who is willing to make an effort to be free.
