Thank you David!
Is there a way we can download these new videos? I bookmarked them but I’m not always online and I’m afraid I’m not ready yet for intermediate tutorials. I bought your Abstract Wallpapers just now only for the videos! smile

Thanks anyway for creating those videos and for sharing them.

Keep up on doing the good work,
Love, Jeanne

You are welcome Jeanne,
 
As to the video’s… well, the Horo and I are working on sequel to Bryce Mentoring DVD - Videos, Scenes and Resources and will include these new video tutorials along with the exclusive stuff for the new DVD.  Other than that, you could use some screen capture software like Camtasia Studio - which is what I use to make the video’s in the first place - in case you wondered.  But otherwise, they will remain on youtube for the foreseeable future.

If you use FireFox, go to “Add-Ons” and select “DownloadHelper”. This is a free plug-in (although they’ll gladly take donations) that will let you easily capture streaming video from sites like YouTube and save it to your hard-drive. The default formats are FLV or MP4, although I believe you can add filters or converters to save as AVI or other formats, as well. I personally like the MP4 format, so I haven’t played with that part of it. Great little plug-in, and I use it constantly—I’ve saved all of DAZ’s videos with it. The only bad thing I’ve experienced is that when saving at 720p or higher, you occasionally get artifacts in the video, but I’ve experienced that problem with several other streaming-vdeo-capture programs, so I think it’s a YouTube issue or an ISP issue (hell, it might even be my computer), but it’s not something restricted only to DownloadHelper.

Thanks for replying David. So you two are in the process of making a sequel to your mentoring bryce dvd? That’s good to hear, I’m still trying to save enough to get me the first one. raspberry ... but I will eventually. smile

Indeed very imressive!
The last week (and still) I’m having a lot of fun using and following the Abstract wallpapers tutorials. It’s an other and very pleasant way to play in Bryce. Thank you for creating that package. I bet you and Horo also had fun creating it. grin

Love, Jeanne

Thank you ReDave,

Thank you JeanneM.  Yes the abstracts were fun, but implementing the anaglyph lens system (Bryce 7 Pro True 3D Rendering) was more fun!  But that is still in QA…

Four more tutorials for your consideration.

These are a bit more “hard core” than the previous 10, so you might want to top up your Bryce knowledge with some of the gentler tutorials here first.

Bryce ‘Nuts and Bolts’ - using Pan V and Pan H - a video tutorial by David Brinnen
Bryce “Nuts and Bolts” - HDRI lighting project - red dragon in a white box - part 1 - a video tutorial by David Brinnen
Bryce “Nuts and Bolts” - HDRI lighting project - red dragon in a white box - part 2 - a video tutorial by David Brinnen
Bryce (TA) True Ambiance still life render of a red dragon - a 15 minute tutorial by David Brinnen
Bryce 10 minute material project - leatherette - a tutorial by David Brinnen

Ooohh, thank you!! I had that link somewhere but I couldn’t find it anymore. Could it be on one of your readme files? Well, nevermind. I bookmarked it now AND saved the link in my Bryce folder so I won’t loose it again,
There’s a lot of stuff to learn on that site! And I’ll start with the camera because I couldn’t figure out how Horo had the camera inside the sphere! It probably is in the manual somewhere but it was easier to open the first wallpaper and continue from that one. I’m a bit (read very) lazy, I know. LOL

Keep up on doing the great work and most important: keep up on doing the things you like to do. smile

Love, Jeanne

Brilliant Video Tutorials. Will have to work my way through them all in time.

Have you done a tutorial on using Light Gels yet? I haven’t found any yet, but would love to know how you use them.

Thank you, Moonglow, Wendy.

I’ve added “using Light Gels” to the to do list.

But I am uploading another lighting video right now - although you tube seems to be making a meal of processing it…  I’ll post when it is done.  It covers the process of upgrading old scenes that use basic lighting (and optimization tricks) to new better lighting also with some consideration to optimization.
