    I hope you keep on sitting in your padded cell with a lot of spare time. What you do is, for me at least, most entertaining. Cool chap this Allan.

    @Trish: Sketchup is a nice program once you learn how it works. Plus, there's a free version, which my wallet loves. Getting models into Bryce isn't hard because Bryce imports .dae files. I did have some troubles importing my recent model because Sketchup does some funny things if operations aren't carried out properly. I found a work around by importing everything into Mesh Lab then exporting them as .obj files. I had thought of using Wings to reassemble everything, but found out when they imported into Bryce they were no longer separate objects. Also, while in Wings I found out several of my objects were not one piece but two pieces. So I combined those while there. And if you happen to wood work, Sketchup is great for drawing up detailed plans.

    @Sandy: Your latest scene is really looking better.

    @Horo: Congrats on the new products.

    @Dave: Always love the posters you create. Guess those three are the original skin heads. ;-)

    Working outside all week in the wind and the rain blessed me with a cold for over the weekend. Delightful. Yesterday was a right off, but today I've managed to get back onto project UV mapping in Wings.

    If you want the model it is here https://www.dropbox.com/s/9iybirh43cqjde5/Matchbox1.obp

    If I've uploaded the wrong one, do let me know. My head is still full of cotton wool.

    Here's my first attempt at a full terrain scene - then I tried to get fancy with IBL and the Sky Lab; lost the plot somewhere along the way and got the distance haze in the foreground and the supposed- to- be- far- away- mountains stuck out like a sore thumb!

    Onward and upward on the learning curve - great fun!

    @David - nice matchbox, thanks a bundle. Get well soon.

    @Trish - very nice floor you've put the matchbox on.

    @Roygee - you're making progress. Though IBL is the easiest way to light a scene (most of the time anyway), I wouldn't start with it. Just stick with the sun for outdoor scenes until you got the hang of sky colour, haze and clouds. That'll keep you busy for a moment.

    Speaking of HDRI reminds me that I've been working the last week to debug and finish my simple HDRI tone-mapping program I started last September, and write up the documentation. It only takes 3 minutes to tone-map a 450 Mpx 96-bit file to a 24-bit one. It is free and can be found on my website (see sig) under Bryce Documents > Programs > Light.

    @David: Thanks for the model. Hope you start feeling better soon.

    @Trish: That turned out well. Did you borrow or create the material for the ground plane? It looks really good.

    @Roygee: From the looks of that scene you are starting to get the hang of Bryce.

    Probably not such a good idea how to use the matches ...

    I wondered how long it would take, I thought it was going to be Dave though...

    OK put the matches away now! I don't want to see any burning books!

    Tut tut... honestly... I don't know...

    Also, the manual and the matches were made to scale. And it looks like you've made the manual bigger (or the matches smaller) although, that would still be the manual being bigge because the matches are a standard size.

    Nice burnt match effect!

    Which file is corrupt? I will re-save and re-upload.

    The match images are all nice, though setting fire to a useful book would have been the last thing on the list.:lol:

    @Trish: Fire effect is really nice.

    @Jay: I saw that effect once after dropping a box of matches.

    @David: Your models are really nice, and thank you for them. Any secrets you'd like to share?

    Dave -funny poster. Love all your work

    Pam – thanks for the link, maybe I can get some cool stuff for my second spring challenge ;)

    Roygee – nice scene

    David – thanks for the models. Hope you are feeling much better.

    Trish, Horo, Jay – playing with matches, now isn’t that dangerous.

    Horo- Thanks for the HDRI tone-mapping program

    "Which file is corrupt?"

    Ah, sorry, David...the file was just fine. I have a warped sense of humour, and so was kidding around with the matches coming through the download as burnt :red:

    This is really dumb...in fact so dumb and not on the topic I am not sure .... to post this or not..... http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/28462/P855/#577656 heres the deal....I made a model in Bryce and want to use it in Darkside or rather convert it to be used in Poser.....I am taking any and all ideas on this.....I am way too dumb to figure it out on my own.....Trish

    @mermaid - Gorgeous render. I clearly need to watch that one next!

    Okay, here's my latest take on my scene. I've got to do something about the tree line, but I've added the eagle to the picture.

    Mermaid: very neat landscape

    @David - thanks for the book, mine doesn't look so nice anymore.

    @Trish - Nice fire effect, the subject on fire is wrong. You want to use an object made in Bryce in DS or Poser (funny idea). Export as OBJ is all the advice I can give.

    @Jay - nicely done.

    @mermaid010 - nice landscape with rich vegetation. And you're more than welcome. Hope you find it useful.

    @Sandy - you do make progress. Now we have shadows.

    Pam: If it is that easy I need to buy one of those buttons.....are they in the store....LOL

    Horo: no this whole stupid thing started because of share cg...I modeled a prop and the people want me to make it so it would work in Darkside and Poser.....and you know me I said....What....I don't know how to do that.....LOL...but David said he would have a look so ...maybe next time I will know how if they ask....I only model in Bryce in .obp format

    @mermaid: That place must get plenty of rain. It's sure green. Looks real nice.

    @Sandy: The eagle, and its shadow, is a real nice touch. The tree line looks a bit to uniform, at least to me. Perhaps scattering the trees more might help?

    @Pam: So that's my problem, no Make Art Button. You don't by any chance have one for straight lines do you?
