    I got a feeling I will be visiting this threads for years to come, so many great tips. I wish that triplanar had been an original feature in Carrara from the beginning way back in Raydream. I

    Hello wscottart, hopefully the thread will be added to over time, inspiration was wgdjohn's Thread "shader-creating-settings-for-carrara-q-a-come-one-come-all", as well as Dart's Information Manual.

    Hope you have time for a render or 3 for the Challenge !

    would david 3 be considered retro?

    Hello Misty, D3,M3,V3,A3,S3,H3,F3 are all considered retro, as well as the Poser Dork & Posette, hope you have time for a Challenge render.

    I think, David 5 also could count as retro.

     

    Hello Vyusur, David 5 was getting a bit of attention in one of the threads in the commons, he's still got life in him despite being overtaken by the new kids on the block. Hope you have time to join in the fun with a render !

    David 5 was the end of the line crying

    only thing sadder is poor Hiro watching Aiko hanging out with all the new rigged guys

    Hello Wendy, still time for a David 8, have you got an retro animation lined up for us ?

    Wow, sorry I haven't had a chance to comment yet - so much going on here!

    @Bunyip02_Carrara - Thanks for hosting and great theme! I like the Shader manipulation requirement. I am terrible at texturing, well, mostly terrible at everything, lol, but I always neglect texturing and usually cop out with something simple. Another great resource of links and examples. Really digging the 'mini tutorials'  - thank you.  And the number of fantastic images you put together with such speed. Wow. I really want to give the Triplanar Mapping on a terrain a try. You have really outdone yourself.

    @Diomede_Carrara - Thanks as usual for the tips and explanations. Still not sure how my entry will be categorized...retro or vintage, we will have to see. If all else fails I can make an attempt at a self portrait. I know for certain I am vintage. Great and clever way to make a rainbow! And I remember Sonny and Cher, barely. I seem to remember Donny and Marie Osmond a little clearer...Friggin' cool set your are building.

    @Stezza_Carrara9 - Really like the colors in the snow scene and the 'Marine Boy' scene. Also the composition. I'm a sucker for bright colors in art, ha ha. Wish I had 1/1000th of your modeling skills. It always seems like: click, click click - here's a full blown perfect model in minutes! Or so I like to think.  laugh  You do fantastic work, love the Astro Boy

    @MDO2010 - Glad you got your new computer up to speed. Thanks for the examples with the GMIC filters. I'm really liking the evolution of the 'I Dream Of Genie' image - looking great!

    @Dartanbeck - So cool to see you here posting again. Sorry your machine took a big dump.  sad   The texture transformation of the robot thing is awesome! 

    @Headwax_Carrara - First, welcome back and I hope your leg injury is not too severe and is healing well. Hope I haven't started a trend here. indecision  You have developed such a unique style over the past few years using Carrara it blows my mind. And Caustics as a light source?(!) Wow, never in a million years would I have thought of such a lighting concept, so cool. Your work has such great textural depth, like colored aquatints or something, hard to describe...which is good. Fantastic!

    Hope I didn't miss anyone

    Thanks all for the detailed explanations, so much to digest here.

    I've started on an entry which will (hopefully) be a more complex scene. Post to follow.

    So it took a while to think of a scene for this challenge. It started with with wanting to make a model of this classic Kit Cat Clock, but I didn't know what to do with it. The past few weeks I have been tinkering with a very (very) simple 'monster' figure and rigging and weight painting. It finally popped in my head to do a scene of two of these figures sitting listening to old time radio in their living room, like from the 40's or something. The UV map and subsequent texture of the clock are a bit wonky still, but after several failed attempts I kind of want to move on and build the other scene elements. Sorry, at this point no special texture tricks.  blush  I hope I can pull it off, lots to do, but I'm inspired by you all.

    Just for fun here is the clock in motion:

     

     

    Cheers!

    DesertDude, that clock is awesome!

    Your Carrara skills are better than you let on.  You modeled the clock, did the UV map, and assigned it textures.  That's three things right there that I haven't even learned yet.

    Great work, Bunyip!  Very neat things in this thread.yes

    Desert Dude - excellent start !!!

    Shader usage can be something simple, complicated shaders are for those who have experimented to get a result that is a little more advanced. Aim of including the shader usage in the Challenge was to look at the different ways shaders can be used.

    Thank you for the nice words UnifiedBrain. Sorry, I guess continuous self deprication and self doubt are second nature to me. I only started tackling UV mapping two challenges ago. Which leads to a question I'll ask in a moment...

     

    +1 on DD's clock... 

     

    I think you may be right there UB... 

    thanks for your comments DD... I'm not as good as you say but we do have fun which is the main thing yes

    Thank you Stezza, I sometimes forget the main thing is to have fun here. smiley

    Thank you Bunyip02_Carrara. Tons of info to digest and get inspired by here already.

    So my question is: Can Carrara export a sub-d UV map? Am I missing a check box somewhere?  I didn't even realize Carrara could export the map until recently, despite that option was staring me in the face. In the past I took a screen grab to bring into an external editor.  Doh!

     

    Edit: never mind, I'm remembering wrong, or was dreaming it, even a sub-d model in the UV editor is not smooth. Sigh...

    Thanks for the nice comments, everyone.

    Stezza, the converse look really good on Vyusur's little guy.  Great to see him active in Carrara.  Great modeling as always.

    Bunyip, these shader tutorials are amazing.  My screengrab program closes drop down menus before doing the capture.  What do you use?  Excellent plane render, BTW.

    Desertdude, the cat clock is triggering memories that I can't nail down.  Really cool.

     

    One of my entries will focus on some retro toys from my youth.  Assembling some related assets.  If anyone is interested, I've put the modeling and uvmapping in my "No One Asked Me" thread. 

    https://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/comment/4519666/#Comment_4519666

    I'll post some experiments with the shaders here.  In the meantime, here is the base toy race track and car.  The car is intended to be low poly, but with enough mesh density to morph to other toy cars.

    (edit - retro logo on side of car is from wb, I can't use that as an entry.  Will substitute something of my own or public domain by entry time)

    I told my wife about your cat clock.  She said, "Oh, you mean where the eyes and tail move?"  She knew exactly what it was.  When I showed it to her, her only critical remark was, "It would have been cooler if the eyes and tail moved in different directions."

    YMMV :)

    Do The Sand Dance

     

    The retro inspiration is Walk Like an Egyptian.  "Do the sand dance" is a phrase from the second line of the song.

    The creation process was convoluted.  It started with some comments I read on skin shaders in the Commons.  People were expressing admiration for their favorite skin shaders.  I started to wonder if I could get more out of standard shaders by using better lighting techniques in Carrara.  After a week or two, I felt like I was getting good results with V4 and standard Lana Elite shaders.  You be the judge, as I took the result and applied it to the Egyptian theme above. 

    Since I didn't manipulate shaders very much in the foreground figure (other than the necklace and bikini), I needed to make a background that used more shader manipulation.  I started with 3 primitave cubes to simulate clay blocks.  To get a clay look, I added Nobiax's shader 12, which is a brushed metal panel, doubled the Specular map into the bump channel, and raised the bump to 250.  To get the lines a little wavier, I added a touch of Brushify from GMIC.

    All seven ladies in the background are V1, with all the color channel shaders changed to the Nobiax shader.  The idea was to give the illusion of a bias relief, with the figures looking like carved statues in the clay.  I could have sold the illusion more by doing postwork, but it was close enough for my tastes.  The foreground is supposed to be the focus anyway. :)

    The background was rendered separately, and reinserted into a backdrop.  The final render with V4 and the record LP at 3000 x 1885 took about two minutes. Pretty zippy.  No postwork.

    The weirdest thing about the whole process, is that I had never even heard the song until a few months ago!  (Misty posted a video)  I know that Diomede used it to title one of his renders in Challenge 31, but I didn't understand his reference.  What was I doing in 1987 when this song was #1?  The answer to that will take too long.  Hey, better late than never.  I really like the song, and I got to use several Egyptian hair and clothing products which were accumulating on the computer, and I learned about Egyptian headdresses.  Happy camper.

    Mini-Tutorials 12. - Skin Shaders Genesis 8 Part -4

    43. In the Subsurface Scattering slot
    44. Tick Enable Subsurface Scattering
    45. Adjust settings, in color box I used a pink to simulate blood, and modified Translucency and Intensity
    46. In the Shaders tab, double click on the rest of the body shaders except for eye & mouth then repeat steps 37 to 45. Note you can copy/paste (right mouse button the Shininess and SubSurface Scattering settings to the other shaders
    47. Do a test render, in this case the Shininess is a little high so I went back and adjusted the Shininess settings again
    48. If you are happy with the result and want to keep your shader adjustments, In the Shading tab, drag & drop the Multi-Colored ball over to where you save your shaders in the Browser-Shaders tab
    49. Save it a name that corresponds to the Material Preset that you opened
    50. Click OK to save

    I guess, it could qualify as retro.

    Retro enough for me (I think our countries rules & regulations on safety would not allow those types of rides anymore), looking forward to the finished render !

    That is fantastic.  Dont worry about the safety concerns.  I am visiting family in Texas, and a version of these rides can be rented for parties.  Just add a seat belt.
