Hattemi — Instant custom animation that spells any word you want
CustomAnim is very easy to use, access the above URL and enter the characters you want to express in the movie in the text box. This time, enter 'GIGAZINE' and click 'Preview'.
Then the last frame of the output movie will be displayed at the bottom of the page. Click 'Start render' in the red frame to start rendering the movie.
It is said that the GPU rendering server is used for rendering the movie.
According to Sepponen, it took more than 2 minutes to render and encode the movie at first, but by performing rendering using GPU and encoding with H.264 , it will finally be rendered and encoded. It seems that it succeeded in reducing the time required to about 3 seconds.
Moved H.264 encoding to GPU as well-> 5x improvement in encoding speed. Total render & encode time: 2.9 seconds. This will do.— Bemmu Sepponen (@bemmu) October 19, 2019
