    I am hoping people will be interested in making some nice entries. I tried making some better signature but ended with this simple but ready in time one :) Was a bit busy lately with some paperwork but will try to make some pictures, at least for new user contest, maybe Bryce and some others but we will see about it, if I can make one or two it would be nice.

    Time is certainly flying by. I have an idea for a render. Just have to put it together now.

  • edited December 1969

    Last month it took me three quarters of the month to come up with an idea!

    I see a theme I might actually be able to come up with an idea for and nobody shows. :)

    I admire people who can come up with an idea, find freebies to execute it, set up the scene, the posing, the lighting.. all the test renders, and come up with a final render at a decent scale and ppi, with a document listing everything they used, in only five days.

    Come on now people,what could possibly be taking so long! :-P

    Do I detect a note of sarcasm in your post, Fiona?

  • edited December 1969

    Hmmm. Hopefully not sarcasm in the mean sense, more... teasing. Don't tempt me, I will make an image advertising "blubber bands", a kind of theraband linked to a sound chip that groans in complaint when you stretch them.... Can you tell I have to go to PT later today? :-P

    OK...time to post my donations. I will be giving 2 donations this month. As usual, all the winners will get my prizes including HMs.

    The first is my "Carter's General Store" model. It has a whole bunch of props with it. It is in .obj format so any program can import it that takes obj format. All the files are set to load where they go by default. Remember...do not move the maps folder. It holds all the textures and if moved, they will not load. Once you load an .obj, you can then move it where ever you want.

    The second is my "Window Walled Pool" model. Inside pool with one wall a giant mirror, the other has tiny windows. This one is in Poser and Daz .pp2 format, so just drop it into your runtime and it will work.

    ALL WINNERS WILL GET THESE. Here are a few screen grabs.

    Very nice! What is that position called? Besides painful and dangerous! :lol:

    One thing I noticed is the shadows look off, considering where the sun is. But overall, very nice.

    Dana

    Edit: The position is "Shiva." I didn't think the pose pack had names on them, but it does! It looks much better on G2F (slightly tweaked to account for figure differences) than on V4 because G2F is so smooth and fluid! And I laughed when the program notified me that the pose fell outside the figure's limits. It sure as heck is out of MY limits!

    Argh, and here I thought I actually worked pretty hard on getting the sun/shadows in the right place! The BG image actually shows the sun, (it's off-screen, but the really bright spot in the clouds is obviously right next to the sun, lol!) So I knew where the sun was SUPPOSED to be. I set the date/time/latitude/longitude to a setting where sunlight would be coming from that spot. Maybe the DOF on the camera just makes the shadows harder to visualize. Idk. Lord knows I stared at it for a loooooong time. In any event, it was my first Iray render, and I'm pretty pleased with it!

    OK, I thought that bright spot was where the sun is. If it's actually off screen to the right, then maybe the shadows are more correct. Sorry about that. Usually when the clouds are that bright, it's because the sun is right there behind the bright spot. That's what threw me off.

    I chuckled at the "Ford" hat -- wasn't expecting that! Awesome use of all those Eastern-themed elements, too. Lots of cool stuff in there that I've never seen before. (This is why I love the freebie contest -- I always walk away with new content!) Great way to kick off the month!

    Dana

    No, I appreciate the feedback -- and actually, this brings up a question I had, which maybe someone can help with. The Environment /backdrop tab has options to rotate and flip your BG image, but no (obvious) way to shift it. Does such a setting exist? In Poser, it would be a material room fix because the background is based on a shader just like everything else, so you could change the tile offset. I can't see a way to do that in DS. I have no idea if this setting is 4.8 specific or if it's been this way in older versions of DS, because I've rarely used a background image up to now. I prefer skydomes (because they're easy to adjust) but with Iray, skydomes are a bad idea for a plethora of reasons. Still, it would have been MUCH easier to rotate the sky than fiddle with the sun.

    And, wow, doesn't that last sentence make me sound very god-like...!
