New User's Contest - February 2013
Sponsored by DAZ 3D and David Brinnen & Horo
Are you new to the 3D World? Are you at the beginning stages of learning 3D rendering? Have you been around for a little bit but feel you could benefit from some feedback or instruction? Have you been around awhile and would like to help other members start their creative journey? Well then come and join the fun as we host our newest contest...
"Designing a landscape"
This month’s contest will take you trough all the steps needed to create a simple landscape environment to use in your 3D renders.
We are concentrating on using Bryce this month, as it is the program in the DAZ 3D stable of programs most often used for creating terrains and landscapes. Many of you will have downloaded it when it was free, and now we will help you get to grips with using it.
Intent: TO produce an environment that can be used as it is in Bryce or rendered out to use as a background image for use in Daz Studio or Poser.We will also talk about transferring it from Bryce to Daz Studio using the built in bridge.
Bryce is very simple to use to produce a simple terrain, but we will try and guide you through how to customise it and add other features so that you can produce a useful and useable background for your scene, and eventually maybe even a landscape that is complete in itself.
I will be checking in on the WIP THREAD as will the rest of the Community Volunteers to try and help with anything you all may need
David and Horo will also pop in from time to time to give you any hints and tips you may need..
