I am avid Daz Studio user eye-balling Bryce to expand my 3D skills.
I was wondering what sort of terrains/biomes can one put together using this software please?
Whenever I see Bryce renders, I mostly see canyons, ice bergs and places out in the middle of the ocean. So I thinking there has to be more to it than that.
What about marsh/swamps, woodlands/forests, jungles/rainforests to name a few that run across my mind, but would be interested in an experienced user’s response.
Well you can’t do better than to look at C-ram’s latest offerings and also Pam’s renders are good examples of “our” (UK’s) pastoral landscape (that’s pastoral but they are often pastel too - but that’s another story).
So instead I will point you to some tutorials.
DAZ has some of Horo’s and mine pointed at here. http://www.daz3d.com/bryce-tutorials/
There are more here on my channel from Horo and myself, http://www.youtube.com/user/davidbrinnen I’ve tried to sort them into appropriate lists so you can pick out the type/level you are looking for.
Failing that, there are still more here, http://www.bryce-tutorials.info/bryce-tutorials.html
And as if that’s not enough, Horo and I have put together some bundles of content and tutorials in these products,
Which accounts for another hundred or so.
As well as including tutorials where appropriate with most of our collaborations.
And if you get stuck, feel free to ask.
With Bryce, if you can imagine it, there’s probably some way of doing it. And even if you can’t figure that part out, so long as you can explain what you are after, preferably providing some kind of image as a guide, then someone on this forum will probably be able to suggest a way of achieving what you want. All I would say, is that if you offer only a vague idea of what you are after, the answer you get will only be vaguely like what you are after.
Finally, here’s a selection of images from my dA gallery ( http://davidbrinnen.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=/ ), tutorials exist for all of these approaches to using Bryce, the UFO sighting is taking place in Horo’s kitchen and shows how DS models can be integrated into HDRI backdrops using Bryce.
