Hi

Has a small project. I want to do a simple perfect sunset/sunrise sea, beach picture. Like one of the following photos:-

http://www.pxleyes.com/blog/2009/06/100-stunning-sunset-and-sunrise-photos/

I'm assuming that this question have been asked before.

I'll check again tutorials in this forum.

Just wonder if anyone have any tips, videos etc.

    Well, that was certainly enough pics on sunsets. Now that we what one is, haha {A bit of sarcasm there}

    Some of them are quite do-able in Bryce, others are well dependent on your skill set. And finally others are just plain easier to do in another app.

    I guess it depends on where you are skill wise and time wise. On what your going to accomplish.

    As for having a low sun that is visible, Control + Alt click on the icon at top of screen that looks like a sun and while buttons are held down click where you want it to appear in your scene.

    Buildings are just basic blocks at it primitive level, so play around and see what you can create. Take advantage of combining the cubes using booleans.

    If you don't have the lastest version of Bryce get it, instancing will help with the vegetation.

    Most of all have fun and when you do get stuck, post a screen shot and someone will help.

    OK, here's a start... I'll try and progress this a bit further as time permits Bryce 10 minute skylab project - basic sunset effect - a tutorial by David Brinnen

    It may seem easy enough just to pick out a preset that looks like this, but more importantly I've laboured over using the controls so that you can recreate the effect you desire.

    Fantastic render, David...but the rocks look a little too shiny...and you left out the seagulls...there's always seagulls around...waiting to ruin your day (usually by taking a dump on your head as you're about snap the pic of the awesome sunset...)

    David's 3 videos are very worthwhile watching, I can only recommend them.

    Great!

    That is what I like about this forum and Bryce.
    I'm watching the video now.

    Once I finish (I hope) the project I'll upload it to devart or this forum.

    I'm using Bryce 7 Pro.

    I'll still see myself as new user.


    Thanks again

    Hi

    Is it possible to create HDRI file without the HDRI convertor?

    Yes, in your Bryce 7 Pro content you will find four tutorials by Horo explaining how this can be done. Each method has it's merits and its difficulties. You just need to determine which is appropriate for your needs.
