Learning Carrara 8....
Well up until yesterday, I barely knew Carrara existed. Sure I had seen the name and occassionaly a product advertised but that was about it. But thanks to HowieFarkes products and some very kind people in another thread that I kind of unintentionally hi-jacked (really sorry about that), I plunged forward and bought Carrara yesterday and did my first render last night.
And...it was so nice to render right out of the box so to speak and it look great. :)
So with suggestions from the other thread, I have everything installed and setup. It was pretty easy really.
Tonight my goal was to load an object into the scene and then try a render, a hot air balloon specifically. Well I loaded the object but didn't see where it was and then had trouble moving around the scene. LOL. ok so that part didn't go as smoothly as installing.
I saw some vids on Learning Carrara in the store and watched some samples off the website so I think I will purchase them to help me get up to speed.
To me just getting something rendered that looks good was great and I didn't have to do anything except load the scene and click render.
I showed a friend at work a couple of the renders from last night and his comment was, "And those aren't photographs?" :)
