Wow! Two first-timers and two really great renders at that! A warm welcome to countrygirl4ya and JesterVII. Hope you enjoy your little stay at our asylum. You realize, of course, that once you start this you’re not going to stop. We expect to see you every month now.


Both pieces are very impressive with the composition and the action displayed. Very much a comic book action feel to them. Very nice use of shadows and shaders. I’m beginning to see a few more possibilities using this technique.

Looks as if this contest is starting to heat up a bit. Glad I’m not entering anything more and only judging…

thanks, I had fun coming up with the piece even though I don’t really know anything about comics.

Nice futuristic street fight!  But you forgot the required item from most-digital-creations.com.  I’m sure there’s something there that you can put into the scene without changing it much.  It’s a worthy entry.


Dana

Note to JesterVII


As a courtesy to your fellow forum users you need to be more clear with the links you post.
For an example Adam at most-digital-creations.com has 46 pages of free stuff for DAZ-Poser users.
The link you posted was for his ad at Renderosity.com, not his site.
What is worse, the link at Rendo is to Adam’s front page not the page the beard is on.
I found the beard near the bottom of page 29.
http://www.most-digital-creations.com/free_poser_poses_textures_morphs_props_29.htm - beard 17 down


So please, in the future, be kind to your fellow DAZ-fiends and have a nice day! 

 

Ouch sorry. Went with the first link I could find. I forgot all of Adams link where to the front page and not to the item.

One thing though, one of the requirements of the freebie contest is that if the site requires an account to download the freebie then we need to indicate that in our list. I use an asterisk but you can use anything you want to denote registration is required to obtain the files. I just love Terry’s work. Some really nice outfits.
Check your PMs for your entry prize and welcome to the contest. Hope you will play with us for many moons.

Takeo.Kensei - 10 July 2012 02:12 PM

[Thank you Dolly. The rendering system used by DS is 3delight which is Renderman compliant. Which means that most of the code should work for 3Delight and therefore for DS too. In practice that is not exactely true and you need some coding skills and have to read both Renderman and 3delight Documentations to get it working. You also may need a bit of knowledge of DS scripting and know how DS works to implement your shader. So basically, I can do the job of translating it to DS but I didn’t do that much yet as I didn’t see many shader that really interrested me and the one that do interest me are not useable as is in DS because one need to write DS Scripts before in order to get a compatible workflow. Till DS4.5 there was no scripted Rendering so I was kind of stuck for what I really wanted to do. So I mostly read RM docs, tips and techniques to understand how it works waiting for the day I could eventually apply them for my own shaders.

Now if you can’t code, you may also use the shader mixer but you still need some understanding of Renderman and hope that the bricks provided by Daz are enough. Not as straight forward as in Shader Builder. But if you give me the links to the shaders you’re interested in, I may do some translating someday smile

Your welcome Takeo. I know a little bit of the process for getting shaders into a scene. A shader uses a set of bricks, they can be the ones DAZ supplies or they can be ones you create or buy. I know that DAZ uses scripts that can call sdl files which I think are the “compiled” files that are the equations and instructions for making generic shaders such as toon, shadow, plastic, skin, velvet, etc. For surface shaders, DAZ has three scripts, the dbm file which we call the shader, and then the two dsa files, surf and def. I think Shader Builder is the sdl creater but not sure about that and opening up the Shader Builder is like standing on the edge of an Esher print, you know the one with all the stairs going nowhere.
So my desire is to create a gooch brick (Mike King’s to be listed in Shader Mixer so that I can play with it and see if I can do something similar to the old jlgShaders like these:

Krissy - 09 July 2012 01:29 AM

Takeo.Kensei I really like your render. The shader looks awsome wink

Thanks Krissy smile It seems the shader is appreciated. I may think of packing it with usable presets and release it.

 

I second that!

Hello Proxima Shining, nice to meet you. Your render qualifies.  Bishounentaurus shaders look fantastic. So what is the Mayor going to do. Looks like a “whoa, wait a minute kind of moment”.

As for your two identified issues:
First one, how to keep textures and apply a shader. You hold down the cntrl and alt keys at the same time you double click on the shader. DAZ will bring up a box called Shader Preset. On the Options tab there is a box next to Map Settings: You want to select ignore. DAZ defaults to Replace unless you use the special key stroke.
For your next issue not getting the laberizer to work on the prop. I think it is because it is just a simple plane with a transmap applied. The labelizer needs an object that is more substantial than a primative plane. Better defined faces on the object.  If you play around with the second set of conversation balloons I listed in the Batman and Batson render it will work. You do have to be careful not all objects are mapped the way labelizer needs it to be.

Thanks for participating. Love to see more of this story! Check your PMs for your entry prize.

That’s kind of what I was trying to get at, but not so wordy.  Some of his stuff has individual pages now so you can put a direct link, but I’m not sure if he started doing that before or after the beard.

Not to worry. I got so paranoid that I created a whole database just to make sure I got all the t’s crossed and the i’s dotted. I believe you would call that overkill but I keep Music happy cause he likes us to follow the rules!:cheese:

Ain’t that right Mr. Musicman? Where are those pies when you need them?
