Hey there!

I am Setup1337, a furry 3D animator and modeler (also a programmer).
I make animations on YouTube and some occasional pictures here and there.

My YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/Setup1337

Source Filmmaker (SFM) has been an excellent program. Unfortunately though, it is lacking in a lot of features. That is why I moved to also making animations in Blender.

The problem with Blender though is that rendering takes a LOT more computer power than SFM. What used to be 2 SECONDS to render a frame is now 4 MINUTES to render a frame in Blender.
Even those 4 minutes per frame in Blender do not come easy however, requiring all of my 88 thread workstation (yes, even that much computational power is not good enough for rendering realistic fur without tons of grain and slow renders).

If you wonder why I don't use GPU rendering, it's due to the fur. GPU runs out of memory immediately. Even hybrid rendering is slower than just pure CPU rendering. GPU rendering really falls apart on complex scenes.

These long render times are a major hindrance for making longer animations or rendering at higher quality. The only way for me to escape this sutation is to build more computers, but those take quite a bit of coin.

Also, I hope to get a motion capture suit one day which would allow me to make lifelike motions in my animations.

Here is where Patreon comes in. If you are a fan of my content then this is a very good way of supporting me in moving towards my goals!

No matter whether your contribution is big or small, it all helps in the end :3

My first milestone! Woohoo! Thank you everyone!

This will be helpful in multiple areas, for example help me purchase additional external storage drives and the like for backups. The animations eat up a LOT of space and I don't want to delete any for archival purposes.

I could also afford to purchase more Blender assets and addons with this :3
