Major Announcement Time and I’m sorry it came to this.

After 8 weeks of trying, that’s two months of swapping DS4.0 in and out of my PC, I can not seem to get the DS4.0 version of the Golden Rules to work properly in DS4.0. I am at a loss as to what the issue is. On my Win7 64 bit OS the Mat files used to swap the overlays and the Rotate presets both have problems. For no reason I can find they will just stop functioning at random times and random uses.

I here by offer the community of DS4.0 users, I have let down, my working texture sets and any other help needed if anyone wishes to develop a version that is stable on a system other than mine.

I have Tried people but for me the BUCK Stops here. I need to just move on and stop beating my head on my keyboard.

Jeff.

EDIT: If anybody wants the files just PM me.

Really? Nobody? Um, okay… The offer still stands. Golden Rules is FREE as in do with it as you please. I’m still very NEW at this making items thing and really would love a DS4.0 user to step up and get this out for all DS4.0 users that would like it.

I know the Idea is being ported to another App at this time. But I’ll not spoil the fun and say which. I do not think it has gone live yet.

Given the strong diagonal lines, Rule of Thirds might not’ve been the best choice for this one.  And I double-focused again.  red face  But the main problem with this is the lighting, I’m pretty happy with how the composition came out.  Finished version up in my deviantART gallery here.

KickAir you never fail to amaze me with how you use the GR’s. Thank you for your example.

If any care to look at my Prim project so far, still working on it by the way, every image was done using the GR’s.

Well-composed, if somewhat chilly.  grrr

Thanks!  In this next one I used the Rule of Thirds grid to improve the vertical composition on a horizontally-centered subject.  Final version’s up in my dA gallery.

The Golden Rules of Composition are now available for Bryce as well. Jaderail kindly sent me the masks and I created some more. Though the Golden Rules of Composition are available in the store, they are free and are therefore priced at $0.00.

There is no required additional product necessary other than Bryce 7.1 and a program that can play mp4 movies, there are two videos, one by David Brinnen and one by myself, and a reader for pdf documents. Here is the link:

Golden Rules Composition Helpers for Bryce.

Thanks go to Jaderail for the masks and to chohole for making me aware of the Golden Rules of Composition for Studio. Without these two Moderators, there were no Golden Rules for Bryce. And thanks to DAZ 3D for hosting this free product in the store.

Thank you Horo, I’m glad to have helped a little. From what I’ve seen though not many Bryce artist needed it. WINK.

Thanks go to you and David for “picking up the banner” and running with it for Bryce.  Grabbed it first thing this morning.

@Jaderail - I tend to agree with you, but every tool helps, as the saying goes, especially for Bryce n00bs.  wink

Okay, this has Pushed me to shove aside my other projects for a bit (not going to fast anyway) and do a better updated DS4.5 4.6 version. It will include all the Overlays the Bryce version does and the Multi Overlay option as well. And I will update my files and Notes for the Third party that has shown interest in doing a DS4.0 version. With luck all versions should be Full to the Bryce standard when released. Off to the Drawing board so to speak.

Excellent work from all of you!  In the meantime I’m plugging away — below’s the composition render of my latest PCI entry, finished version up in my deviantART gallery here.
