I know I had that contest going right before the forums went kablooey.  When they went belly up I’d decided to go ahead and just give everyone who participated a $3 GC or so, but things have been weird with accounting and the way GCs work.  Once I know things will work right I’ll get it sorted out.  Hopefully you guys understand.

On a side note, is there anything you guys would like to ask about?  I hadn’t been too active here lately, there’s been a lot going on.  Could use a change of pace honestly.  Did just buy a bitchin’ new microphone for doing tutorials with.

Hey guys!

I’ve not been working on anything Carrara specific, though I do have a lot in the works that will directly support Carrara.  Wonderous Wares was made for Carrara first and was going to be Carrara specific before I’d talked to AoA.

http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/351/

I do have things Carrara specific planned, but they are mostly fun things that I will have to put off until the right times.  If all goes planned this month should be active for releases from me.  I’d been doing a lot of muddling around behind the curtains.

Btw, how do I do paragraph breaks on these forums?

Good to hear.


Just add extra spaces to create a break.

The contest prize doesn’t really matter much to me. I entered for the fun of the challenge. cool smile

We should have more render challenges, with or without prizes.
Now that this forum allows polls, we could vote for our favorite entry.

Hi DT,
The contest was just an amusement for me too. smile  No particular wishes for now, aside of site and forums instead of a wasteland. Perhaps the inspiration will come back again!

Plugins will need to be updated for DS4.5—this likely won’t happen until the official release of DS4.5 and the final SDK.

I missed the original thread for those, but they look fantastic! Very shiny and purdy. raspberry Looking forward to them.

Thanks everyone.  This is something I wanted to post that had to do with what I’m currently working on.  Trying to get some properly mapped and textured SSS out of it, which looks good until it becomes back lit.  Carrara’s got a lot of weird things going on with scale and SSS.

I actually started thinking of a good way I could do a lot of the things like this I’d always meant to.  Hopefully I can work something out.

Here’s more I wanted to show from current things, the skin shader’s glow channel directly contributing to SSS with variable dissipation (so you can affect how far the light travels through her skin).  First image is the render, second is the resulting SSS pass and third is another SSS pass done with higher dissipation.  You can tell the higher dissipation isn’t post blur, since the brighter bits still properly come out much sharper.

I’m coming to find how much I missed trying to make Carrara do these things.
