    That's pretty cool.

    BTW you can now upload the larger size images on the site. Autoresizing is working.

    However we haven't yet worked out how people who use IE can view the larger size. In Firefox and I believe also Chrome it;s right click and vie wimage, but that seems to be disabled in IE.

    Thanks Cho, appreciate it, regarding the auto-resizing is there a maximum size that can be posted, for instance the render just uploaded was originally 1680x1050.
    Thanks again :-)

    It would appear to be only the kb size that is important. We played around with some, but I think they were smaller. Only way to really find out is to experiment.

    So lets try. THis is 1600 x 900

    That's a pretty image. Very peaceful.

    So what is the kb size we can go up to?

    And Frank, do I get a prize for snagging this ;)

    Nice. I didn't even notice that. I'm not sure about the kb size. It says 9999KB on the upload box. I'm sure that's gotta be wrong though.

    That's a very good point I think we need to put that on the list of questions for Monday, Frank.

    Very nice render, Pam. The waterfall looks particularly well. Question: do you use Gamma Correction when rendering?

  • ChoholeChohole Posts: 28,254

    Gamma what ? That is a straight render, no premium settings, from my dear old Bryce 5. It may be old and creaky, like me, but heck it still works.

    No premium effect. Bryce 5.0 has it enabled by default. See screenshot, made from Bryce 5.01. We were not happy it is enabled by default and has no controls. It tends to equal-out contrast. On the other hand, if you go for a dreamy look, it can help.

    consider me reprimanded, I know that is there, and don't bother changing it very often.

    When I get a chance to play I shall have to see what difference it makes in that scene.

    Admittedly a lot of my landscapes are meant to be soft and dreamy. I'm meant to be soft and dreammy, but since I started wielding the moderator club I have to find my inner hard core. :coolsmirk:

    Excellent images!
    Here's my latest.
    Ruined Temple by DAZ.
    Flower by Lisa's Botanicals.
    The ghost is part of the Ruined Temple model by with an additive texture.
    Scene and camera are surrounded by a large cube with a Volumetric mist texture.
    Illuminate by the sun, a single spot over the flower, Use Sky IBL and TA.

    Nice renders, Pam, really; poses are excellent. Dan, great render, too. Ghost looks ghostly.

  • ChoholeChohole Posts: 28,254
    edited December 1969

    I agree that ghost is great, as is the render.

    The eagle one is very cool!

    PS. I use IE and had no problems with uploading of images - that was, after trying several variations of code using the image tags etc., until I discovered that they weren't necessary anymore - much better, really. There is, however, a problem in previewing the images (that is, after one clicks the 'Preview Post' button) as they don't show up. Don't know if that is still the case, though?

    Once you add an image, and click the preview button, than you can't see the image, but what you do get is an empty box, so you can then add anotherr image. If I remeber correctly you can add up to 5 images to ome post, but need to use the review button between each image.

    Thank you Horo and IanzThingz :)
    For the 3rd image i used "Elefont" a great free application which can save texts as .dxf and i highly recommend that because Bryce can't create 3D text .There is a way using terrain editor and use a pic photo but its not so accurate or takes to much time.
    "Elefont" can save .dxf texts even in your font types from the Windows folder such as Tahoma, charlemagne, comics fonts...etc
    For you IanzThingz i highly recommend "Spiralizer" another free 3D application which can create and save 3D Fractals as .dxf,most spirals, good for your abstract renders :).
    If you didn't knew about these 2 awesome applications , try to google them for a free download.I think these are posted on ShareCG too.If you can't find and need them ler me know so i will post them somewhere if the copyrights notice allows me to share it or redistribute.

    No need to google Elefont and Spiralizer. Just go to my website > Raytracing > Tools and you've got the link. There are some links to other worthwhile tools as well.

    Didn't know about those two, I'll go hunting, to do 3D text, I've been working through Peter Sharpe's tutorial and creating a 512x512 bmp image and using it in terrain editor on a symmetrical lattice. Found a lot of his tutorials at archive.org ;)

    Cheers for the tips :coolcheese:

    Thank you very much Horo.I didn't visited your website till now :o
    Great collection and awesome work, thank you for collecting all these and your time, i really needed and want the city generator and i will play with the vegetation aplications too.I bookmarked the main page on my google chrome.
    First i was dissapointed about downloadings lol... but ive found that the links are in the pics not in the titles :).
    Thank you again Horo and good luck Ianz.
    Oh and Ianz if you need new cool fonts for that, there are lots of websites with free fonts on the web, i think 1 good and popular website with +10000 fonts free , is abstractfonts.com

    You're most welcome, cris333. That page is already a bit long on the tooth but it has its uses still. There is another city generator, some forumite posted the link to his free program. I had helped a bit for the French to English translation but somehow can't find the link anymore (burried in the old forium). If I do, I'll post it.
