Looking for reviews of plugins, large projects, Carrara as an art tool, professional or otherwise….
When I’m finally finished rendering / fixing episode 8 of Sci Fi Funk I’ll do an article for Carrara cafe if you like.
To recap It’s a fly through of three huge scifi scenes welded together painstakingly over the last 2 years.
That would be AWESOME! :D
Gastor, I have a lot of ideas for tutorials - and the shaders especially I think people need some help to get them over the learning hump… And I need to do articles on my favorite plugins… and… and… and…
Very sorry about the caching issue, I allowed that to go on too long before just pulling it. There are still quite a few issues that I am hoping will be fixed, but seriously DAZ’s forums are hardly “issue free” either. HA! It’s about effort to reward…. You’ll make the effort if you think lots of people will see it…. Kinda don’t get why people think a community site should just fill itself, kind of defeats the whole point of having a community site if it is only controlled by one or two people (meanwhile after that set the standard everyone decided to create their own Carrara site, so once again we have a problem with info being scattered everywhere and nothing centralized)....
And I *know* there have been mixed messages in the past about WHAT exactly Cafe was meant to do: whether it is a glossy commercial for Carrara, or whether it is a platform for certain “star artists”, or whether it is meant to be an actual Community User’s Group…. Let’s just say everyone involved seems to have a different idea and trying to be respectful of those separate goals has created some “this is my territory, that is your territory” issues….
But trust me, while I like having the glossy front end, we already have a very nice “artist” magazine in 3DExpo…. I think it’s long overdue to open up the front end of the site to more users and more USEFUL information for users, not “just” pretty showcase images….
