skipper25 said:It sounds like the sort of render that you start before going away for the weekend! Does it do volumetric water, too? I've got Bryce right here - I must dust it off when I get tired of building.
As for render times - Yes, if you want a quick render, Bryce isn't your best friend... but its level of lighting control and end result makes it worth it most of the time.
Alternative view of Cromer Pier. :-)
It's a great render, but I am not certain if it is very realistic, whre are all the empty bottles, crisp packets, chip wrappings, empty cig boxes et al that should be molldering on the sea floor. :coolgrin:
And the sunken U-boat!
SAVAGE, terrific image!
That's really, really funny, Dave! Love it to PEECES!!! There's a lot of thought and work gone into that. Absolutely great!
I finally got time to play with the "new" pier. I replaced everything with the newer version and rendered it again. The only thing that needed tweaking was the transparency of the windows. They load with 0% transparency so you need to go to the material room and make them 90% or so. I love the details that show up now. Thanks again for all the hard work.
You are very welcome. Have fun.
Well thank God this thread is still going! For a few days there I thought everybody was going to wander off to see the Bridal Suite rebuilt and forget all about the fun times we had on good old Cromer Pier.
Spent the weekend there taking snapshots.
(Skipper, in the crowd scene I still hadn't rejigged the deck tiling according to your instructions. What a difference it makes, though!)
Lol, that shark fishing one is most excellent!. :cheese:
Two wonderful pictures, Dorseyland. They are among the very best renders of models of mine that I have seen, making all the effort worth while. Thank you very much.
May you go on to produce many more.
I am glad that you tried the tiling of the decking as suggested and glad too that you have played with your own touches such as notices, window display, background and so on. This is exactly what I meant about running with the ball. I agree with Dave - the shark is really excellent (that would give him a surprise) - and I particularly love the two old biddies watching and gossipping.
Thanks again to you, Teri, Dave and others for letting us see your work and for giving me in particular so much delight.
Thank YOU (again), Skipper, but no one is going to forget that YOU are the master craftsman who builds these terrific toys and we're just the kids who get to play with them.
I have a million other ideas for the pier. Did I already mention that earlier?
Aw, shucks. :red:
Yes, you did say that you had ideas. Go right ahead - we're all waiting with keen anticipation. This thread will remain open just as long as you want it.
