Hi there,

just want to say that I have bought two sets of the “Easy Environments” by flipmode today and so far I (can) must say, damn great sets.

Have bought the road to hell and the desert set and it looks great, will post some renders as soon as possible in my thread smile

thanks for that Flipmode smile and create some more smile

suggestions:

swamps
lake
river
sea/beach/cliffs
australian outback (with a dusty road and without, maybe with some rocks and hills) I like this red ground they have there
mid western plains (US)

A further suggestion:

Underwater. wink

Plus create IBL sets for all the Easy Environments.

Just to say thanks for the nice feedback guys, always pleasant to find such friendly comments =)

Underwater, Australia-style (red rocks) and beach (not the sunny california kind though) will hopefully be amongst the next sets. But I am going terribly slow right now, and have to finish one other set first…so it`ll be a while.

The render looks great cosmo, the trees fit in perfectly. Poor girl has a long way home.

IBL ... tbh. I don`t see much benefit from that for the easy environments. The skybox wouldn`t be affected anyway, and on terrain uberenvironment light has a nasty tendency to produce shadowing errors.

thank you smile

well my render was rendered with ├╝berenvironment light + one distant light with shadow and one from buttom to top without shadow and low light intensity. there is one thing you can have errors on shadows but only if the displacement maps has high values, had this effect on the path, the normal desert was not effected. it appears with the distant light if you turn the shadow bias down to 0.01 if you turn it down to 0.1 - 0.05 than it works smile

have created a landscape with lots of terrain-items from different vendors and in parts reworked textures. the road is from Jack Tomalin and the rocks are from FirstBastion, bushes and trees by Lisa. That may can give you an inspiration for another terrain smile here it is:

Wow, that looks great too…I can`t even see where the road set and the landscape meet, guess I have to look up the sets later wink
And yes, it is somewhat inspireing, such a set may work well as all-in-one combi.

UE lighting, sure it works.
But tbh. I couldn`t have told you used it there, I just don`t see much of a difference on sets where ambient occlusion doesn`t do much.
Then again…it does of course make more sense with added props or characters. I shall reconsider should I ever get to do a skybox addon.

it was a bit work to rework the texture of the sides of the road, normaly it is the road has checkerboard pattern at the sides smile have used the texture from the grassy rocks by firstbastion to fit the road to the rocks smile a bit tricky it was but it worked smile

The following are two different renders of the same scene (plus and minus some lights) using the lovely ‘Top of the World’ set, one using 3DLight and the other Reality.

For some reason I could never get the mountain images of the skybox to render sharply in Reality. (Someone else around here could, though.) They always looked blurred. DoF wasn’t on, so I just dunno what happened…

BTW, Flip, how about creating some cloud props for this great set in future? wink Oughta be great to have some clouds around when using this set!

When we see people being shot, roasted, crushed, beheaded etc on the big screen, we consider it standard entertainment fare. But when we see child porn on the big screen, we immediately call the authorities.

I’m sure the animation must have been a lot of hard work.

I was actually thinking more of another work of music when looking at the scenes provided by the ‘Top of the World’ set. But I suppose our tastes are just a bit different. wink

You must be a pretty talented gentleman to be able to sing, compose music and create 3D animation. smile

To Flip (in case you’re still following this thread):

Just one more suggestion. I just thought I’d really like a FOREST Easy Environment. grin

Imagine a dense, lush forest, where the sky above is virtually all blocked out by the thick canopy of leaves and branches. I think that would be lovely.

If such a set could be made, I’d be really happy!
