    Kewl because of inspirational artists like the animation team behind Dinner for Few.

    Well, dang!  That was some awesome work.  PGre, are you Pete?  You created most of this long before I started Carrara.  I hope you post here more often.

    Also, there's an artist named Selina on this site that you need to meet. smiley

    Hmmm... I can't seem to locate the tutorial either. I think evilproducer did one on that. But the Shader feature you're asking about is the Snow field of a Terrain shader. You need to tweak the elevation limit of the snow field to just the right height, and give it a nice, frothy shader - like the snow shader, for example ;)

    Thomas Schwenke also does some really cool videos using Carrara, like this one, for example:

    ...and this one

    I also (still) really love this 2010 Carrara 8 Demo Reel

    Why is Carrara so Kewl?

    I think a lot has to do with the wonderful people that use it, like those (everyone) whom contribute to this very forum, from the new user to the highly skilled veteran, everyone posting in this forum helps to remind each of us how incredible this gem of a software can be - because it can solve so many visual tasks!

     

    Speaking of Kewl Carrara-using people, some of them go above and beyond from time to time to promote public outreach. Don't get me wrong here... even our most quiet contributers add a lot to our community. But I think it's really neat that we can still grab amazing information that still drives inspiration to do incredible things, even if some of the material seems to be a little 'dated' if we actually pay attention to when it might have been created in the first place. But if we ignore the dates, the information contained within remains as interesting now as it did the day it was released. 

    For a few examples, how about the die-hard contributers of the Carrara Cafe and the Carrara 3D Expo E-Zine! 

     

    ...and while we're on the subject of E-Zines, how about the awe-inspiring 3DXtract!!!
     
    We also have another cool animation-centric forum to attend, Carrarators!
     
    But even just within the many pages of this very forum, we have some truly valuable material that can be gleened simply by browsing and clicking on any number of the awesome threads that are going on in here. I'm utterly flabbergasted every time I visit, from the times I just get all wrapped up on the current topics on the main page to other times when I have time to venture deep into the pages of this never-ending vault of knowledge and inquisition.
    I love this place. I love the people. I love Carrara.
