To Flip (in case you’re still following this thread):
Of course I am!
I am not a very active forum user in general, but checking on the feedback and renders here is one of the best parts of the “job”. =)
And so much cool new stuff showed up here.
@ cosmo: Ok, after taking a look at the list of sets you used I am even more impressed by what you did on the road render. Must have been a lot of work putting it all together indeed.
@ wavedelsh: Doh, animation! Very cool. The song has a nice Neil Young vibe in the first half. Great guitar, well played and a nice 12 string sound. (FX or real 12 string?)
@ Davage003: That`s a great style on the render imo. Did you see Painted Skin 2 ? Your render reminded me of the (?) sparrow demon there. Big fan of those chinese fantasy/wuxia movies.
@ Jade: Greenlands for a change! Glad to see that one put to such good use. Whatever you did to the ground (retexture?) it works great.

good idea, no clue how it could be done for DS/Poser properly. I guess the standard solution would be a particle system, but if we have something like that built-in I didn`t even find it yet.
Imagine a dense, lush forest, where the sky above is virtually all blocked out by the thick canopy of leaves and branches.
You know this is a funny suggestion for a series which relies heavily on skyboxes? lol
I really understand the longing for good forest scenes, but I fear there is nothing “easy” about it. Difficult to create for Poser/DS, and likely incredibly slow to render due to all the transparency.
But do you know Stonemason`s Enchanted Forest? I don`t own it, but the promos look incredible.
Already been discussed on the Easy Environments product thread. Rather unlikely for the Easy Environments series, similar reasoning like on forests. Similar suggestion as well…Enchanted Forest with an added water plane might work very well for such a scene. (I don`t even want to imagine the rendertimes having all that foliage reflected though!)
I might do something that fits the bill, but not as Easy Environment.
Tbh. I have a half finished set with a city theme, I stopped working on in favor of the environments though. I plan to pick it up again at some point.
Sorry for the lengthy post…there just seemed to be so much stuff to be covered.
