    Thank you Pete.c44, and Yes you may call me Daz, dang forum never saw a forum where it was so hard to change your user name. :D right now I have render brain, but I will figure it out.

    Problem is the new software ... you have to contact one of the moderators to change your username.

    Actually, it is a damned good video. You show the capabilities of this new software in your follow shot of the zombie-like park visitors. I is appropriately creepy, because it takes the familiar and adds off-key elements. I wish I could come up with clever scenarios the way you do.

    Migration

    Had a bit of colour correction post work in GIMP and in the case of the second one a conversion to monochrome but that is it.

    Yeah Wendy is right, the idea of using grass models as the shadow catcher works great in Carrara but it doesn't translate to DS. I've tried doing it with displacement and other things but can't get it working. The problem is that the transparent bits show self-shadows (parts where the shadow catcher casts shadows on it's self because of actual features), it turns into a jumbled mess of shadows. It's actually really easy to do in post though if you guys would like me to show you.

    DT, I'd like to know your tips for post work to fix the grass, etc. I have Photoshop CS6. I tried cloning, but I don't think I had a brush that worked well. It looked messy.

    Hey "I'm a real boy!" I mean I have a real name. Wendy I like the movie a little floaty on some walkers but for a quick movie render it really shows how cool this thing is. Kinich I hope you brought a pooper scooper to clean up after letting them lose in the park.

    I like the way the bike seems to have kicked up some dust. How did you do that?

    Here is my latest creation. I tried to post this a little while ago, but it didn't show up, so I hope it doesn't become a double post. This is a great product - money well spent.

    ...oooh, really like.

    Have to wait for another payday though as I missed your PA sale day.

    Experimented with two separate renders... background dome as one, and figure with shadowcatcher saved as png as other. This let me slip an effects layer in between the two and (hopefully) get a mood going...

    When the walls of reality thin, and Others start squirming through, will you take a stand or be a crunchy snack? :ohh: :coolgrin:

    I really like this environment, but I was disappointed that I couldn't use camera DoF as the background was all the same distance (obvious when I thought about it).

    However, I remembered a flaw in the way the renderer handles DoF - the blur amount is taken from the first reflective or refractive surface hit.

    So I added a geometry shell to the shadow catcher and gave it a push distance of -0.2 to get it slightly behind. Set diffuse, specular and opacity to 0. Set refraction to white and 100%, IoR to 1.

    And joy of joys, it worked - the background is blurred to the right amount for the view. I even used this to bring the close tree forward a bit with a scaled plane aligned over the image at the right distance back - not perfect but sort of works.

    Anyway, hope this method helps someone else who wants to use DoF with this.

    I just had a fail
    not DT's fault, Daz studio to blame, for NOT being Carrara!!
    you CANNOT use two instances at once of Daz studio!!! you lose texture maps and apparently shader bricks
    (3D delight actually told me that but until I saw the result, I had no idea what the error meant and kept rendering)
    yep, opened the 32 bit at about the time (20 frames in) when the 64bit was rendering and sent a model to Hexagon and back
    I pull this crap all the time with Carrara rendering and it just slows down a bit.
    Studio is a Diva and attention whore, she wants all my computer to herself or she throws hissy fits!!!

    What an amazing product!

    I hope there will be expansions for it in the future.

    I'm sorry about the slowing of my responses, I think I've come down with the flu or something. When I'm feeling a bit better I'll post a tutorial showing people how to post work the grass to make it look more realistic.

    Thanks, I'm looking forward to it. You probably wore yourself sick getting this product ready for release. Better rest up. We'll keep playing until you return.

    Gramps got his new bike today. He got every option possible.Sadly, it now weighs 400 lbs. and is too heavy for him to ride.
