Trying to add a mist to the view like there is in Beechdale, but it’s just not happening!

Hi Barry smile

If I remember correctly, ....it’s a volumetric cloud that is used to create that mist in that scene.

You could also try a “Fog primitive” or a couple of them, then scale them and adjust their setting to get something interesting..

Yeah, tried to use a volumetric cloud, but it’s just not happening.  Will try a fog primitive.

(and not a frog primitive, which I originally typed)

{edit} - Just set a quick primitive up and stretched it to fill the area, I’m so excited to see the result.  If any.  I’m such a sad sack, this should not be exciting, sex should be exciting, but not this.

Well I put some cream on those and they went away…

What’s caustics?

Anyway, here’s the render as it currently stands.  Added a few bits, like the flowers.  The fog looks ok, but perhaps a little strong.  The idea was to make it a little hazy.

What’s caustics?


In optics, a caustic or caustic network [1] is the envelope of light rays reflected or refracted by a curved surface or object, or the projection of that envelope of rays on another surface.
The caustic is a curve or surface to which each of the light rays is tangent, defining a boundary of an envelope of rays as a curve of concentrated light. Therefore in the image to the right, the caustics can be the patches of light or their bright edges. These shapes often have cusp singularities.

THere, aren’t I being helpful

Not really!  There was no image to the right!

Much better.  I think!

I just set up some caustics for my render.  It’s taking time.  Might blow up.  Don’t know.  I’m all intrigued though!

I like using caustics.  Another thing that can improve landscape type renders in “god rays” which can be faked within a render in Bryce, but it would need our Andy or someone to tell you if you can do them in Carrara

I prefer using the term “gods rays” than the proper term, “Crepuscular rays”

this is the sort of thing I mean pretty picture

I know of God Rays, but if I can remember Crepuscular I’ll use it because it’s a big word and it’ll help me get my own back on a few people!

I think we can use God Rays in Carrara, but I haven’t delved into that yet.  I’m still fogging!  Caustics seem to ramp up the render time a lot so I’ve skipped that for now.  Might be worth setting them up for a render overnight though.

I don’t like caustics because I do the washing up in our house.  And every time someone cooks eggs I have a hell of a time, ‘caus sticks ter teh pan!

Yep, you can do God Rays in Carrara.
