You are more than welcome, vivienrk. Glad to hear that you figured it out. There are many symbols you can click on to get menus or options. I’ve always considered Bryce as some sort of an adventure game. Click on everything and get surprised.

Not only that, don’t just click, Try Alt-click and such. (I learned this from a David Brinnen video.) For example, hold ALT, then click on the Create Tree icon. You’ll see a list of tree files not available from just clicking on the Create Tree without the ALT.

HAVE FUN!

Addendum: I actually am using Bryce as a backdrop for 3D JWildfire which Andreas is just launching. The flame is created in JW, then exported to Fiji and followed with using a 3D software to create an environment. I chose Bryce Pro as I had it already downloaded a few months back. I had a play with it at that time but now I can really get in and ‘learn’ it. I have so enjoyed this learning curve and I just want to say that I am very grateful that I can get assistance here if I need it. So thanks again Horo for the patience and instruction!


Bryce is fun and you have an interesting idea to use Bryce for the environment.  I’m not good at landscapes, and had more success with stills,  abstracts and fractals, You can see some of my Jwildfire fractals rendered in Bryce here : http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/39084/P555

That’s interesting. I don’t quite understand what you did with the flame in Bryce and in what format it was imported. The going procedure atm is creating and rendering a flame in JW and then use the in-house 3D mesh generator to generate the slices. These are imported into Fiji which produces an object file. I then chose Meshlab to invert the faces and apply a smoothing effect. This resultant object is then imported into Bryce or another 3D software to apply colour and a backdrop.

Here are links to the 3D JW flames I have completed thus far:

Wow, your examples are great but that’s too much work going from one program to another.

I applied the png image after rendering the Fractal in JWildfire; as a heightmap to a terrain but I found that using the lattice is easier. I increased the resolution to 1024. Then I applied the same image as a picture in the material lab and changed some of the settings. I rotated the object 90 degrees on the x-axis and about 38 on the Y. used the black sky from the sky lab and added a radial light as the lighting was a bit dark.

Here’s another using a preset sky with the ground plane reflection sent to 35

I hope the screenshots make sense. If you need more info let me know.

Have Fun

In Bryce I went file/open image but then how do you get it to appear in the terrain editor like in your first screen shot pls?

@vivienrk:  Those are beautiful images.

@mermaid:  That’s a sharp object and scene.

Attached is my latest 3D fractal rendered in Bryce. From the assistance I was given I placed the candle in the holder and centered the flame also in the candle in aerial view. So cool!
