First of all happy new year to everyone, then let’s talk about this post topic… 🙂
During these days I was relaxing and practicing subdivision modeling, after a long time away from Blender I was back to the dream of creating a convincing human head model, but my programming side win the day. 😀
While I was studying in detail some face key parts topology from here, I noticed the PiP-like composed images attached to the first post…
Last night I was thinking of a way to automates the process and today it becomes reality in the form of a Blender Python script: it is capable of producing an image which is composed of multiple rendered frames, think of a daily comic strip and you understand the name ;).
The user can select which frames to render specifying a string similar to the following one: “1-3, 5, 7, 9-11“.
Moreover it is possible, of course, to choose the size of a single frame and the composed image table dimensions, i.e. how many rows and columns it should have.
Have a look to how well my topology study renders fit the script purpose. 😉
This second script is a bit more complex than my first one, making use of the Registry module to load and save options and the Draw.PupBlock() method to display a bigger GUI.
Of course it is released under the GNU GPL License and available online, download it from here.
