Anyone know if the Hexagon gallery is going to be started again, I miss seeing what other Hex'ers have been creating.

    We don't know the time frame for when galleries will be reinstated yet. You could always start a ender thread, like we have in the Bryce forum

    Thanks Chohole, I will have to make something and post either a render or a Hex scene.
    If anyone has got a prop or whatever they would like to show, please feel free to post an image of it here :)

    Did Hex ever have a dedicated gallery? I seem to remember it being combined with Carrara?

    What you did have was a WIP forum, we all had WIP forums, but they weren't used a great deal, so they decided to do away with them.

    Hex WIP thread had 646 threads in it, in 6 years.

    You are right Roygee, Hex & Carrara shared a gellery. Here's what I put together since my last post, hope you like it :)

    Very nice :)

    So, you used DS just to port your scene through to LUX?

    I use Hex to model, depending what I'm doing I'll texture in PSPx4 or Blacksmith3D paint. Then load into Daz Studio and render with LuxRender. It may-be a time consuming but I quite like the results.

    That is really good, John - but I take mine on-the-rocks.

    Just for interest, how long did that render take?

    Thanks Roygee, normally my renders take an hour or so, but as I had the glass set to realistic and it is a fairly large image I left it to render over night.

    mmm... I believe there's a free plugin for Blender to use Luxrender - must look deeper into this - your result is really impressive.

    Forgive me friends.......
    I can not follow the forum for my lack of knowledge of the English language.
    Sorry.

    Come non c'è nessuna Galleria hex postare immagini qui = siccome non c'è nessuna Galleria di Esagono è possibile (si può) postare le immagini qui

    Sorry that there is no gallery for users

    Dispiace che non esista gallery per gli utenti

    Hi Roygee,

    http://www.graphicall.org/megasoft78/windows

    There are others that have been integrated directly into the builds of Blender, but those (linked to) versions give you the choice of rendering internal (blender view-port) or external (Lux GUI). There is a short vid (on the download page) on how to add the plugin. (you must use Blender 2.63a for that plugin, currently:- http://www.blender.org/download/get-blender/ )

    Hi Steve -
    Thank you. That link is for YafaRay, but i grabbed the plugin anyway. Also got the Luxrender plugin and Blender 2.63a.

    I'll give both a try tomorrow.

    Cheers

    Sorry, elderly (long) moment lol.

    I have been using Yafaray path-tracing, it is quite good.

    For LUX, you can download the "Standalone" V1.0RC4, it does contain the plugin for current Blender. http://www.luxrender.net/en_GB/standalone.

    Used the Hex-DS bridge to make some shaping morphs for a candle.

    Man! I've been using Bryce since ver. 2, tried Lightwave and 3DS Max (not for long enough), but I've never rendered that kind of realism!

    I'm totally humbled...

    PS: couldn't get the image into this post - it's the one with the Coke cans and glasses :)

    If your talking to me then no the final render is cararra 7 standard.
    The background is a bryce 7 pro render with exported hdr file.
    Notice the flare is done in cararra.

    The following is a wip and of course you can see the hex UI.

    The render is bryce 6.3
