You would think Pixar could afford better computers. Yeah im sure they are hella better than anything in someones house. But Some of their frames I could recreate on my cheap PC and render in a couple hours or less. Maybe 10 minutes
i think that 24 hours per frame is a lie, imagine that 1 second has 24 frames as they say, and a movie have 5400 seconds, thats aroung 1:30 hs , then 5400 * 24 frames each second = 129.600 frames , now do the last math and tell me how many days it could take to render a movie... its a lot right ? haha i think a movie cant take 129600 days to render , thats about 355 years LOL
The average Pixar animation is about 90 mins. So only about 350 years... but of course they have thousands of rendering computers. With 1000 machines it drops to 130 days. If you don't make any mistakes...
What about stuff like wather effects? In wich step are they made?
And what about the objects that are moved in the film? Like when someone is eating. Is this part of the animation step to? You just said that the animation artist move the characters.
seems like waste of time and money...this is what i hate about studios if i worked for 1..all that time drawing instead of actually producing and coming up with priceless content on the spot......if the animators just did work in the grid and talked as they created,movies would be done alot faster and would be alot more enjoyable to watch imo....the workflow would be dramatically improved ultimately making the company more money and people enjoying their jobs more!! think about it,whats funnier a joke that has been premeditated or a joke that comes out of the fly????? same concept different form.
I tell them all the time, do not wait until the end of the semester to complete renderings. Time and Time again, I have seen people screwed or loose a rendering because they left the MAC station for a snack and came back to the horror of someone else sitting at the workstation on Facebook or twitter. LOL 5 hours down the drain.
Love this video! It's cheesy but gives an informative, simple and quick explanation of the process, which is helpful. I've been having trouble trying to find out what path I want to head down career wise, and despite always knowing I have an interest in animation and drawings, I've never had the confidence to try because I mainly couldn't understand how to use programs for animating and making 3d models like in Adobe Flash, Premiere or After Effects.
But seeing this video really piqued my interest, I noticed how many people work in different areas of the process like lighting, modelling in sculptures, drawing, designing etc and i think that's what really made me excited. Even if i'm not great in producing the main animations, maybe my potential lies in a different area like drawing storyboards and designs, making simple 2d animations of the drawings or making sculptures of the characters. The process offers so many other areas to work in and maybe working in those different areas might just be the thing i'm looking for.
Although foreigners may now invest in A-shares, there is a monthly 20 percent limit on repatriation of funds to foreign countries.
Performance of A-shares.
Since its inception in 1990, including a major reform in 2002, the index has seen great fluctuations. Overall, however, it has grown along with the Chinese economy. The years 2015 to 2016 were a particularly difficult period, with a 52-week performance of -21.55 percent as of July 20, 2016.
As China grows from an emerging market to an advanced economy, there is substantial demand for Chinese equity. Stock exchange regulators continue efforts to make A-shares more broadly available to foreign investors and have them recognized by the global investing community.
In June 2017, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index announced a long-awaited decision it would add stocks to its index. According to CNBC, MSCI will add 222 China A Large Cap stocks to its benchmark emerging markets index gradually beginning in 2018. The MSCI website reveals the stocks it will list include the Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, Guotai Junan, Ping An Insurance, according to a document on Tsingtao Brewery, SAIC Motor, Suning Commerce and Spring Airlines.
Current Dividend Preference.
Participating Preferred Stock.
Convertible Preferred Stock.
Cumulative preferred stock includes a provision that requires the company to pay preferred shareholders all dividends, including those that were omitted in the past, before the common shareholders are able to receive their dividend payments.
Non-cumulative preferred stock does not issue any omitted or unpaid dividends. If the company chooses not to pay dividends in any given year, the shareholders of the non-cumulative preferred stock have no right or power to claim such forgone dividends at any time in the future.
Participating preferred stock provides its shareholders with the right to be paid dividends in an amount equal to the generally specified rate of preferred dividends, plus an additional dividend based on a predetermined condition. This additional dividend is typically designed to be paid out only if the amount of dividends received by common shareholders is greater than a predetermined per-share amount. If the company is liquidated, participating preferred shareholders may also have the right to be paid back the purchasing price of the stock as well as a pro-rata share of remaining proceeds received by common shareholders.
