Was already mentioned as an upcoming product in one of the threads on Howie.

Howies scenes are incredible!  they are what inspired me to purchase Carrara and learn it.  Thanks Howie for such beautiful work.

simply amazing!

Howie needs to become the digital Bob Ross.

PhilW has his instructionals on availible through infinite skills (I use the app on my Ipad).

I would buy your instructionals!

I have PhilW’s tutorials too…they are fantastic.  would love for Howie to put the info on how he creates his scenes into a tutorial.  what he does in Carrara is amazing.

Don’t you usually have to install leaves separately from within Carrara? His (and mmoir’s) instructions usually tell you to (and how to) do this.

The folder that it installs every thing in is called:

vallealpina

The online Read Me documentation mentions the scene is in that folder and the File List it shows that as the folder it installed everything into.

I am inclined to agree here. I have been getting caught-up on my runtime installs and Valle Alpina did not show-up in my Browser Scenes. I am giving the install another whirl now; I’ll have Process Monitor watching my folders to be sure there is disk activity where it should be.

Echo that thought! A tutorial like that would be an amazing bit of Carrara education. Although Howie rules the landscape scene market…does he really want to let the unwashed masses into his playing field? wink

My hero Mark Russinovich saves the day again. SysInternals Process Monitor quickly showed me what happened during the install.

Most Carrara scenes, Howie’s past work, PhilW’s work, etc. got installed to: H:\Daz3D\Carrara8\Scenes

Valle Alpina got installed to: H:\Daz3D\Carrara8\vallealpina

Yep, Daz buggered up the installer program.

I am seeing even weirder issues Wendy.

For example, the saved camera “Position 1” ought to have rendered a vista not unlike the previews of the scene. Instead, I got “lost in the forest.” This seems to be happening with all the saved camera positions so far (working on render #3). I’ll try to capture some screenshots of this oddity later.

It must still be too early for my brain and the coffee hasn’t kicked in yet. I’m not following you on the way to correct this.

If the attachments worked; I should be showing the Assembly Room when set to saved Position 4 (a view of the creek, conifers trees on either side and the gorgeous mountain background). Then is the render from that view…

Edit: UGH! The attachments aren’t taking for some reason and I’m not thinking clearly enough to figure out why yet… smirk
