Bank holiday rendering projects… Put on your 3D glasses now.  All rendered in Bryce, no postwork, a set of advanced optical filters split the single camera’s perspective view along two different paths, tinting them along the way red for the left path, cyan for the right.

Very nice, anaglyph, David…great depth. Not many like the so-called 3D effect now increasingly seen evermore in the latest blockbuster, but I for one am defintely a fan - the more visual the experience, the better.

anyone guess what the filter does?

Hmmm…it’s got to be an ‘electron-beam-generator filter’, as it looks exactly like one of those Electron Microscope images smile I got the chance one time to use one of these ‘scopes (had to find the exact angle in the gratings of a diffraction prism), and maannn, it sure is one cool piece of serious kit. And that was over ten years ago, so imagine what they are capable of showing us now. Your filtered image also looks like a UV (ultraviolet) image, so that is the type of filter effect that you’re after (don’t answer, as I’m only throwing just shapes)?

Thanks.  Er… no to the filter, although that is something I’ve been experimenting on and off with for a few years now.  Here’s the closest I’ve got on that score.  A clue for the other… try a set square.

I used to stick a glass sphere in front of the camera and attach it to mimic lens distortion directly in the render, but what you have done here goes way further and is pretty amazing to say the least.  You got me wondering if you rendered it in two passes or one.  If you rendered it in two then it’s very cool, but if you rendered it in one pass, then that’s the neatest thing I’ve ever seen in Bryce, certainly on an innovation level.


Well done, both of you.

Thanks Len,

Rendered in one pass you will be pleased to hear.  This is just a WIP - a cobbled together system of lenses and filters sat in front of the perspective camera splits the rays along diverse routes and colours them accordingly.  Hopefully Horo can figure out the particulars of how it works so we can get it set up for predictable results.  So pretty neat huh?

Here’s another one that uses mirrors to trap the light and redouble it on itself while it is blurred a little with each bounce.

Oh it’s definitely neat, in fact I think you should give the workaround for stereo a proper name.


To my knowledge, no one has ever pulled-off a stereo image rendered within an application that doesn’t have stereo as part of the specification before.  If this thing is a first, and I think it is, then it needs something to identify it as a procedure, something to mark it as something you both discovered.  If you don’t, some sad twat will come along and claim it as theirs.


Interesting idea on the soft focus as well, I’m pretty sure I get how that one is done, but it’s neat nonetheless.  But that stereo thing, that’s just inventiveness at it’s best, and even if you weren’t able to figure out the particulars for it, you have opened up a world of possibilities for everyone using an application that doesn’t do stereo imaging as part of it’s spec.


You have achieved a feature that normally needs to be programmed into the application, I’d say that’s neat, respect to both of you.

Very detailed, glad I didn’t have to render it!

LOL yeah it took a while.

WOW David you never cease to amaze me, well done. I just wish I had some 3d glasses to hand. smile

Thank you Szark, well you should have glasses on stand by - right next to your monitor - at all times - just in case…  As you may or may not know, Horo and myself have been working on abstracts and tutorials for abstracts.  I don’t know how to do a commercial tag, so just pretend I did.  This is the thing… 200 + colourful but essentially meaningless.  With 14 video tutorials.

Oh those are so cool, way out and all the rest of the applicable words.

BTW, if you post it as a commercial thread, all on its own, you just add [Commercial] at the end of the thread title,  because the content advisory tags are not working at the moment.  Had you realised you can also post a 2nd commercial in the Commercial Forum.

Thanks Pam!

No I wasn’t really aware of there being a commercial forum.  The website behaves a bit oddly for me now, sometimes I can post a comment and other times, in spite of being logged in, it will not let me.  Also the PA issues forum remains similarly illusive.  This list here…  Is how I am navigating.

Yeah, doing those abstract was huge fun. There are a mere 200+ but we show how they can be done and the outcome controlled, they render in seconds and you’ll come up with millions, billions even, once you know how easy they can be done. The possibilities are virtually limitless. A joy to the eye, stirs the imagination ...


We’re also working on lenses for the Bryce camera. After David set the stage, I’m currently working on establishing the controls to render anaglyphs in one go, A series of lens vignetting filters are ready. Effect filters await closer investigation. It’s all exceedingly exciting and I doubt that what we’re currently up to could be done with another 3D app. Bryce has so many tricks up the sleeve that await to be discovered.

I suggest you go into the Forum top, It is easier to navigate. Once in the forum, you need to Log Out in order to be able to Log In. Strange but it appears that the button never changes. If you cannot log in, you’re already logged in, even though you’ve logged out yesterday. This website behaves a bit weird since it was launched but it will work smoothly eventually - daz-anon.

yes apparently there is some sort of cahing problem.. As Horo says log out on a page that you are shown as being logged in on, and then logging in again should work.

Also if you get other weirdness then try clearing browser cache and cookies, and then force the page by doing a forced frefesh. usually works. 

And I usually, when I get to the screen you show in your screen shot just hit the “Forums” button, and then I get the index of all forums I have permissions for..

In the TOS, which was niclely put at the top of all forums, so no one had an excuse not to read it, it does say that Daz PAs can have 2 Commercial threads, one in the Commercial Forum, and one either in the App forum or in the Commons,  Off site vendors are only allowed to post in the Commercial Forum.

Thank you Pam, yes the logging out loggin in did the trick.  As for reading the TOS you clearly have an exaggerated expectation of my ability to read reams of doublespeak.  Is there a version in pictographic form?
