@David. Thanks for your input. I’m only working with a Dell Vostro1710 laptop here, 2.50GHz dual core,3 GB ram and a GeForce 8600M GS graphics card which is only just coping with the image as is. However I do like your suggestion, but when you say ” render in 2 parts” does that mean putting the image to-gether in Pshop using layers.

Cheers

David - In looking through this thread and the first, I’ve seen several variations on eireann.sg’s image (post 68 of this thread) - I’ve combed these threads and looked in the brycetutorials.info site, but I can’t seem to locate the tutorial for it. I believe it was about importing a Wings3D object into Bryce.

Could you post a link? (or another link, for those of us who can’t see, LOL)?

Thanks,

joe

@David:  For some reason I’m unable to view your Light Emitter tutorial, though I’d like to.  I ran into this on another tutorial, its name escapes me at the moment.  The controls momentarily appear but just as quickly disappear.  Viewed the tutorial about making your latest cube without trouble, so I’ve no idea what’s going on.

Yes, you would have a render with your clouds.  A render with your scene with advanced lighting.  And a mask generated from your scene render that lets you put the clouds back in.

Hmn… well it is playing OK on Google Chrome for me.  What web browser are you using?

I exported the image as a Hdr Image and rendered it as an IBL backdrop, with a reflective ground plane,  but I got this error.  Can someone explain this error? Thanks

An angular map has an aspect ratio of 1:1, it is square. Latitude/Longitude is the same as spherical or equirectangular and it has an aspect ratio of 2:1 (twice as wide as high). Bryce accepts only the aspect ratios 1:1 and 2:1 in the Radiance hdr format. This is essentially what the error means.

Nice images, though. Look like painted.

 

Thanks Horo. I understood that bit but I could not understand why the image I saved as a hdr image, had that error. It was a 800x400 that makes ratio 2:1.  I’ll have a look at your video – the link David posted.

Why you should consider exporting your renders as HDRI - by Horo Wernli

@ Jamahoney- I like the water drops render. You can make a cool sci-fic animation with those drops.

@ David – I enjoy watching your videos over and over again, maybe someday I will understand them fully. Why don’t you do some for beginners, most of your videos are for intermediate or advance Brycers. This past week I tried the skyscraper tutorial, but did not get further than the DTE. This weekend I’ll try and do the height map in Photoshop and see how it goes. After seeing links to a more Wings 3d, videos I going to download this program now.

@ TheSavage – the icebergs are not “quite nice” they are awesome.

@ Rareth – your images are lovely.

I’m using Opera.  Except for this one tutorial, and the tutorial whose name I don’t remember, all of your other tutorials and all others I’ve watched play without any problems.

Ok, I just tried using IE9 to view that tutorial and it started playing like usual. It appears Opera doesn’t like something associated with that tutorial.  I’ll have to see if there are any video settings in Opera that need set or adjusted.


Edit to add:  I did some investigating at the Opera web site, and it seems You Tube is doing trials with HTML5 and unknowingly I was added to that trial; this I found out from a thread on Opera’s forum.  After reading one particular thread, and learning where to look in You Tube, I was able to opt out of the trial and the Light Emitter tutorial play correctly.  I found out the other tutorial I couldn’t watch was the optical illusion one, which now plays fine.

There is a lot of fancy stuff you can do with bryce and wings3d but I noticed you always have to clean up before you continue modifying the shape or you get funny results. Even some basic shapes have to be cleaned up after creating them
anyway here anther pic

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

Jamie, glad to hear you got your video watching issues sorted.

mermaid010, you asked “Why don’t you do some for beginners, most of your videos are for intermediate or advance Brycers.”

The answer to that is that there are 100’s possibly 1000’s of tutorials for beginners already made - and a lot them can be accessed through the Bryce-Tutorials.info website.  So to make more would be “reinventing the wheel”.  What I want to cover, mostly, is tutorials that take advantage of as yet undocumented Bryce 7.1 Pro features.  Tutorials that provide information that isn’t available anywhere else and to promote the use of the new feature set.  Many of the features in themselves are not hard to use, a beginner could easily turn IBL or TA but… a beginner would not really understand the role of these features in a way a more experienced user would instantly grasp - so I am careful to stress that the tutorials are intended for intermediate to advanced users to try to avoid confusion and frustration for beginners.

eireann.sg, nice modelling and rendering.

Some more Happy Buddha’s
