Here’s my first Bryce tutorial.
https://vimeo.com/49534521

It’s really just a simple tip for beginners.
about how to use a photo as a material.

David Brinnen seemed to like it, and suggested that I posted it here.

So here it is.

I hope you enjoy, and that it help people.

Thank goodness the word “idiosyncrasies” is seldom used.  At some point, time permitting, I will tidy this up into some links.  But for the mean time, this link links to Peter’s vital threads about instancing.

To test… http://www.daz3d.com/forums/search_results/56cf5382f48bb88532e3d7537bbecba9/

Thanks Graham.  Hmn… I wonder why not?  I tested it oh… only a few hours ago.  But yes it does not work now.  I’ve redone the search and added a new link which now works.  I wonder if somehow the searches expire?

Graham, you will continue to masquerade as a new member until you make post number 26, which is when you lose that shiny new status and become just any old member. cool smirk

Another new tutorial by Horo

Why you should consider exporting your renders as HDRI - by Horo Wernli

This I heartily recommend to anyone interested in HDRI.  Not just from the perspective of exporting your images but also in terms of getting to grips with the entire concept.  This video offers clear insights into HDRI and tone mapping.

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

2. Do not miss David’s tutorial on Wings3D. But for text, Elefont gives better results and it is as easy as writing a text using any font installed - no tutorial needed. And it is also free: http://www.armanisoft.ch/webdesign/FrmDownloads.html

Understanding HDRI ( Knowledge Base)
What does it mean HDRI ? How it works in Photography or 3D Computer Graphics ? Why is recommended to use .hdr or .exr images as an environment(sky) map on the 3d render scenes ? A great time saving usually wasted on conventional lighting ?

If you got your first free Radiance format .hdr image from web to be used in 3DS Max,Maya, ..etc but it’s not working properly in Bryce or to brighty:
Highly recommended , Horo tutorial about the using in Bryce/modifying/exporting a .hdr image , see the link posted above by David Brinnen - post [ # 23 ]
(Thank you David and Horo )
-also open the hdr in HDR Shop and make some adjustments.

If you need .hdr files ready to use in Bryce in IBL
-Visit Horo’ website for free .hdr files or see David and Horo’ shop content for .hdr packages
-See Bryce installation folders for free .hdr files (you may also use Search in computer for .hdr files)
-See DOSCH HDRI , only the Light Probe (the mirrored ball image) and the Spherical Maps are accepted in Bryce.
(latitude-longitude -ratio 2:1 and the angular maps)

Remember:
* using a hdri image in IBL while rendering might increase the rendering time for at least 10 times but the result is 10 times more realistic
* if you don’t use a .hdr on rendering in IBL Lab you can get great HDR results on the final rendered image using few different exposure renders and merging them in Photoshop (see the merging of 2 or 5 images tutorial links) - after all the final HDR image is a result of “Dodging and Burning” with or without Tone Mapping adjustments.
