Well what a great start to the new year. My computer decided to finally die, well the motherboard. Have no money to fix it or the replace it completely so I won’t be around much for the next 4 months or so. So glad I had everything backed up on two portable hard drives.

This pushes my latest project back even further now. But at least when I get back to it I will be able to use DS4.5 and start to really enjoy playing with Shader Mixer surfaces, lights and cameras more. Things that I could never use properly with the old computer. So head down and save like mad for the next 3 and a half months. I just hope Win 7 is still avalable then…don’t like the looks of WIn 8.

But no 3D at all, no access to any software, two days in and I am getting withdrawls already. Oh well a least my wife will be pleased…no not with sending time with her…it’s just I will get a number of jobs done. smile

I’m so sorry to hear this I know how it feels, I was lucky my brother lent me the money to fix mine (well actually all that was not replaced was the case).

Well my first render in months.

DS3A rendered in layers due to the old machine I have borrowed. This was originally done for the Stonemason Contest but after thinking long and hard and feedback from others I came to the conclusion is wasn’t good enough to enter. One comment I got was “not your usual standard”.

I do have two more image in the works and one is rendering now. I will render the other tonight as it will take many hours.

Well a stroke of luck floated my way in the weekend. Sent the old P3 machine I was borrowing off a friend of a friend and now I am borrowing a Dual Core 2 GB of Ram and Ethernet and DS4.5.1.56 works. So hopefully I can limp my way to a new computer. Yay.

So to test things I made a quickie in Vue 10 Esprit. I only spent one day making this, posted it on DA yesterday and then last night I rerendered after applying some Transparency effects on the leaves, tweaked the GI Gain, Sky light Gain and set the light quality to .60. I did try 2.00 but this poor thing struggled. Still a little grainy in the sky and clouds but I can live with that..

Here is what I have been working on for a while now and I have a long way to go until it is finished. I want to render this really big so I can print it off and hang it on the wall.

Rendered in DS3A as 4.5 would crash with all that in one scene. Plus a lot of postwork to add the atmosphere and sun/rays.

I had to make some new signs in blender too, that was fun to do and yes I have been told about the spelling mistake. smile

Whoah!  This is awesome!

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.
