As a noob i don't have enough material yet so instead of opening DAZ I'm constantly wandering through the Sale - omg
Ah well - I'll participate in the next one lol
Ooooh - I'm not gonna make it
If you look at last month's contest, there were several images using nothing (or not much) more than the DAZ Studio included content: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/5085/
But yes, the sale is pretty awesome right now, so if you can afford to take advantage, go for it!
Hope to see you next month!
I'm rendering what will likely be my final entry now...hopefully it finishes on time...
Render time so far: 2h 48m
Time remaining before deadline: 1h 45m
Render Progress: 29%
From these numbers, it's not looking good. But a full hour of that render time was devoted to the shadow maps...and the lower half of the image should render more quickly...so we'll see...
(with apologies to John Lennon)
Oh, I'm just sitting here watching the render line go down.
It's really moving much too slow...
No longer think I'm gonna have enough time
I may have to let it go...
Render Progress: 34%...I'm assuming the contest ends at midnight DAZ time, but even if that's not the case, this may not be ready tonight. The version I already posted to the contest thread is fine though, I guess. Should have started sooner, or at least gone with a higher shading rate. I'll post the finished piece in this thread if it doesn't make it into the contest.
