”are you going to share the animation here?”
Yep, eventually when finalised – usually as a link to a YouTube vid (for some unknown reason, including the YouTube-view option that was enabled in the last Bryce forum setup has been turned off in the current forum setup. I think?).
Animations are a different animal to still renders – in that, if you use fancy lighting techniques (lights, soft shadows setups…etc.,), models, primitives, increased resolution, then they will never be finished as they take just too much time. No offence to renderer’s here, however, when I see some waiting some 5 to 10 hours for their Bryce creations to finish; with animations, however, it’s usually in the 20 to 24 hours for an ani’ to finish. And that’s just one section of a fly-through, of a much longer, final animation. Like all renders, however – still or ani’ – the rewards are always revealing, if not unusual and unexpected.
That’s the attraction of animations, I think, because while stills – as in, one final rendered image only - can give you a scene from the best angle that the renderer has chosen, the animation option can sometimes give one an all-round view of a scene – in effect, a real 3D. I’m sure that there are renderers here who would like to present several angled views of a single Bryce work they’ve worked on. But don’t, because they aren’t into animation, or, additional views might look repetitive or boring. For this forum member, anyway, they wouldn’t be, as I would love to see several-viewed aspects of many of the wonderful renders so far presented – including your own.
As to suggestions for your own work(s): please don’t feel like they are the correct options; as all works – presented by both amateur or professional – eventually comes down to how one feels about them as finalised. That’s the hard part, I think, because it really is in experience of looking at other renders, images, paintings…etc., that one decides to present a work ‘as is’, or at the level one ‘is at’. Either way, it gives one confidence, and better’s one into making further works for the future. The creative process is so addictive, and so much a release into the sub-conscious.
Hope this helps? And look forward to seeing further works by you, and, of course, others, too! Wish I could contribute more images myself, but the slow, ani’ bug (‘monsters inside me’) has got a hold, I’m afraid
