@StuartB4 - that is a very cool render, indeed. Very well done.
@David - thank you. Those darn abstracts don’t let me in peace (and in one piece). I experienced that when I did my part of the abstract wallpapers. I gave your new method a try, though I followed my own ideas. There are thousands of possibilities just by moving the camera a bit. And while the previous one needed 2-1/2 hours to render, this one does it in less than 2 minutes.
Here’s my latest, the photo in the paper is actually my grandson at my desk.
The cup, saucer and spoon and the newspaper objects are from Archive3D.
I added the tea and the bubbles and the front page to the paper.
Made the Solitaire board, the pen, the coasters and the table with Bryce.
HDRI for the background. Took 16 hours to render @ 64 RPP, Soft Shadows, Boost Light and MAx Ray Depth = 4
Was going to use 256 RPP but still had jagged edges around the rim of the cup and the render time was ridiculous
so I dropped it down to 64 and there was no noticeable difference.
Well done!! It all looks so realistic. I’m not sure I’d have the patience for a 16 hour render though, but this was definitely well worth the wait.
Excellent, wonderful, amazing, and a host of other such adjectives for everyone’s works displayed here. Each is impressive in its own way.
I call this one “Magic Echoes Between Here and There” . Not much of a title but every other one I thought of turned into a paragraph.
The only post Bryce work was the addition of my tag line and the conversion from .bmp to .jpg to fit the post size limits. Anyway, I hope you like it.
That is rather impressive, given the length of time you appear to have been using Bryce
I have to agree. I certainly wasn’t producing anything near as nice back when I first started in Bryce.
@Horo - I like the abstract with only a couple of spheres and a cube, because they certainly produced something that looks more involved. Your latest abstract reminded me of a diamond cocktail ring at first glance.
@David - I love the colors of your latest abstract. I have to find the time to try another one. Sadly there’s just not enough hours in the day.
Thank you Miss B. The second one looks a bit like the interior of a wrist watch to me
Ohhhh, now that you mention it, yes it does look like the interior of a watch. I hadn’t seen that at first, but now that I look at it again, I can imagine it looking like a watch from which I’ve removed the back cover.
@David Brinnen - I told you, there is no end to it! Looking nice; “fruity”, reminds me of strawberries, probably because of the red and green.
Instead of doing a bit more serious work, as I planned, I dawdled away the morning ... Minimalism again. Two slabs, one sphere, one specular convolved HDRI, the GWL and 39 seconds to render. Slabs behave differently than Planes, are more limited, though nevertheless useful. Rendered as 180° panorama. Though the GWL cannot be controlled by the camera FOV, removing it makes a huge difference. Also, using the EWL instead of the GWL gave a completely different result. So these lenses also have their use for a panorama render.
