OK I know I’m a bit late to this party, but I wanted to see if I could find an alternative way to the ones suggested. I tried no end of volume light and materials (but they stop working when HDRI are loaded) - so that was no good… and well, cut a long story short, this is what I came up with. It’s not exactly suited to beginners, but it might be of passing interest to some of the other posters.
Trust me Dave, if it was simple, I wouldn’t have nearly bitten my mouse mat in half in sheer frustration. First Bryce can crash, then Camtasia can crash, then the video rendering can produce a file that crashes and then the whole maddening cycle begins over again. And failing all else, youtube can just decide to sit with the video at 95% uploaded for hours at a time - apparently not doing anything very much. Anyway, I hope you can follow the tutorial OK and it helps you in the future - even if it can’t help you in the past.
I am going to have to find time to go through that Tutorial, super end result there David. I guess it is not going to work in my normally used version of Bryce though.
There are ways and means, if you send me a stripped down source file with the lighting setup you imagine using I could probably figure something out as a compromise. But really, all things considered, Bryce 7.1 Pro… Can’t you sell a kidney or something, or better still, someone else’s?
