As a teaser for what I'd like to do for him, I rendered this image:
I think it'd be cool to fully animate that with audio and give it to him. It would be a short clip he could play before movies. Do you guys agree that it would be a cool thankyou for running this board?
I can save it out into several movie types commonly found on PC... Quicktime for one example. Would it be worthwhile for me to do this. Do you guys even know if he has a HTPC? Can this or some other format be played or converted to something that will play on a normal DVD player? Will DVD burners read in a Quicktime movie and convert it to normal DVD standard?
Also, at the current size of the image, 1280x720, rendering this movie may take more than a day and result in a quicktime file close to 1GB! Does anyone know of a lower resolution that would still look good when projected? What about half that resolution?
Lastly, should I change the lettering to something else? Since I couldn't find his home theater name, that was the best I could come up with.
