    Just wanted to get that out of my SYSTEM, Ahem! Barry!! You holding back on us? NICE render.

    Thank you :D

    Most of the render was fairly straightforward, only the posing was a pain in the bum-cheeks. Posing is my nemesis at the moment. I won't go so cocky as to say I'm good at lighting, but I don't fiddle around as much as I used to with the lighting, I seem to have at least a basic idea of what I want to achieve with that. Scenery is difficult because I'm sure people have all seen what I've got by now. It's either that or model my own, and modeling is a very slow process for me because I've no blinkin' idea what I'm doing!

    But yeah, I really hate posing! Hate it. Hate hate hate it.

    must rewatch that for me, largely unmemorable movie to see what the fuss is about, one day!

    She wouldn't drink brandy, her heart (and liver) belong to Jack Daniels!

    I'm in a situation I'm not used to. I'm generally very happy. This is quite the revellation and I've expected it to fall apart for the last few weeks, but it hasn't, I'm still happy, I'm fired up, I'm enthusiastic, focused, and... Well, I'm kind of back to the way I was years ago, at least in my head. Obviously physical health problems are a different matter, I can't control diabetes or my bad back, arms, legs, eyes, etc!

    The upshoot of all this is that I've taken stock of life, written that project list, and decided that art is where I can make a difference both to myself and to others.

    My websites are dead, being brutally honest. I make enough to cover their existence but not enough to call them profitable. I'll keep them going, but I won't increase. A few pounds here and there is still better than no pounds. But that's it.

    So I rewind the clock, and take Mr Belwon's advice, turn a hobby into a money making machine.

    The Department of Work and Pensions are essentially saying that I need an income. I'm not disabled, I'm just very sick, and although getting up and physically going to work would possibly be the least comfortable thing in the world for me, there's nothing stopping me from working here, in the comfort of my own comfy chair.

    I have to learn how to model. I have to learn how to texture. I have to learn how to pass quality control from Rendo/Daz/RDNA/Whoever, and I need to learn how to discipline myself to make enough goods to bring in enough bacon to survive on my own two feet.

    If I don't have the right tools by now, then holy mother of Dog I'm screwed. Maya, ZBrush, Hexagon, Carrara, Poser, Daz, Bryce, Vue, Blender, the list just goes on and on. No excuses, got to get cracking and learn my craft.

    Ok, so, modelling is easy, will have an entire set of models by about 10pm.

    :lol: So glad we have lots of talented modelers around here who are willing to sell us their creations for a reasonable price! :) (Otherwise, my entire involvement in 3D would probably consist of statements like "Ooh! Look at that pretty render!")

    I could have a set of models in minutes!

    I just caught your Post in Stupid Thread. That's weirdness for sure. P.S. nice render.

    I'm off to set up the next render for my little thing I'm doing. Back later.

    Y'all are busy little bees today. I knew Barry had to be dreaming---or drinking heavily. :lol:

    I've downloaded some, now to install. Hopefully I'll have a render before bedtime. Actually, I haven't eaten since day before yesterday. Better eat before doing anything else.

    Today's last render is cooking. I'm pooped, I really don't have the energy to fiddle with 3D anymore today. That's good, I should be able to sleep well tonight so I can go get all cleaned out tomorrow.

    I get more confused the more I try to do. Am I supposed to have genesis.dsf and genesis.duf both?

  • JaderailJaderail Posts: 0
    edited December 1969

    YEP, the .duf comes with the new starter bundle. Hint It loads faster, for me anyway.

  • atticanneatticanne Posts: 3,009
    edited December 1969

    I guess I'm okay then. I thought the .duf was supposed to replace the .dsf. I've got both.

    Hey Wendy, tell me again, what was it you used to make AVIs? Or can you just upload sequenced JPGs?

  • SadKitty_CarraraSadKitty_Carrara Posts: 20,985
    edited September 2012

    I render seqyenced png's mostly and drop or open the first one in virtualdub, it loads the rest, you then save as avi.
    I save uncompressed
    then
    I use Windows live movie maker to edit and make into wmv files for YouTube.
    you can save compressed as mpg but bit big for uploading.
    I do not keep the avi files, they can be huge, just the image sequences and wmv files.
    Carrara loads image sequences, you can also make avi and mov files using Carrara!
    I have for 3D titles and several video textured planes for video in video effects.
