oh. God, now we will have to help Barry with all his Carrara questions
please mate, venture out of the new users forum into the Carrara forum
Jacob has a “Carrara academy” thread you can join for safety and familiar faces (avatars)
Andy/3dage drops in and is the most helpful Carrara CV ever.
at least unlike Maya, we can help, hoping Attic Anne will join in more too, I can only answer questions if asked!
and you only learn by asking questions.
Postal holiday here yesterday, so no mail. I checked anyway just in case the mail lady forgot and had something to deliver to me. But she didn’t, so I’ll be wearing a path in the grass starting today.
yes, my “blood” was just a plain shader, no refraction, reflection, transparency or anything, the render times would be horrendous.
looks better animated but not in the one I uploaded!
I posted a teaser where I accidently ticked freeze for the emiter so the blood spurts up then freezes looking like is does in the render.
look at my Alien v Predator video, the kiss to see what particles CAN look like, and bear in mind it took 2 days to render THAT!!
Anne, I only posted it last week, Wednesday I think, Australia is on the other side of the World, downunder.
and, they lose stuff on planes too! I had to give an insurance quote!! incase they lose it!!!
(not saying they will so don’t panic!!!)
I’m taking today off, I’m just going to let all this stuff flow over and through me today. No working on code, no arguing with figure set up, no envro prop set up and prop adding. Nothing, just kick back read threads, maybe answer a question here and there and let it all go today. No hard brain burning stuff will be messed with.
Days off like that are alwasy good. Even a few hours off, giving me time to do that render, was good, although I did do it in stages. Fix a bit, browse forums, fix another bit browse forums again. and so on. Probably why I didn’t change the V4 pose, which is terrible
