We lost a star in the ratings too. We are circling the bowl!!!!
Well I finished the write-up for my project and it is at the social group section if anyone is interested. Do I need to add it here too?
Since we had a little time to play with our models I made some tiny changes to make it look better.
BTW No pics yet but I'll post then soon, just need to produce new one that reflect some small changes I've added.
Worried about Extrafresh, haven't heard from him. I hope Bill will follow up on this so we can start the voting.
P.S. I did a first draft render of the case using KT and all of my fears came true. I started the render but didn't view it till it was done. A few minute go by and render is done. I clicked to see the full render and all I can say was...(I really said this to myself)...OH MY GOD!!! Over and over again. I haven't posted any rendered images yet but I'm dieing to show you guys.
Want to see?
Maybe Xtra is
Extrafresh has been logging in, but not replying to my messages
Hell yeah! is it breaking the rules to ask you to send me a link to one via PM? or are there no rules left?
I don't think so...I'll PM you with a few pics. Now remember these are my first drafts rendered and are not complete yet so be kind.
Mr.Bill, maybe another week?
did he die?
Have no fear. Bill is working on the voting situation. Remain calm and put your trays in the upright position...
Is there an easy way to move the sun lighting position in KT? I got a massive whiteout glare on a test render. There's a lot of guesswork involved when you are using it for the first time. Even the texture previews take forever to render.
I have no idea how to use KT. The site doesn't seem to have any decent tutorials.
A decent texture database would be nice too...
All of the group thingys are made aren't they? Can't the admins or mods make them all public and then we make a thread explaining how to vote?
@talladega, your terrible bro......."did he die?"
@Cheapskate and stuartwood89, The links I provided on the other page has some good info. The download section has all the texture you may need.
Cheapskate, you say that even your preview rendering is taking forever? For quick previews I go to "Settings" and select "03. PhotonMap - Quick" for me it usually takes 1-2min. render time.
I'll get back to you on the sun situation.
@Editor22, The renders look even better at it's full size. At least I'm on the right track, can't wait to bust them out here. May be we should start a new thread just for rendered images of the cases.
that would be sweet, but we should have a standard set of settings so it's a bit more equal
only make the renders available to the public AFTER voting is complete. if voting ever starts...........
We couldn't do that, as not everyone will be using the same rendering program. For example, I'll be using 3DS Max far any renders I create.
I do think it needs to be done after voting has finished, or it could have an influence on peoples opinions, even if they're told to ignore them.
I agree, any and all rendering pertaining to this contest should be done/shown/posted in this forum after the competition.
That said I think everyone should use any rendering program that they feel comfy with after all it's the end results that matter.
But I have to say we should have a deadline on all this. I mean (for example) voting should start by this Friday and so on. Bill should have that last word on this if Extrafresh can not. If we don't this thing will go on forever and we will never get a chance to vote and move on.
Which other page? I can't find any.
