Running Before the Storm

Thursday, October 5th, 2006

After a day spent assembling a rather long questionnaire for a client’s new site I needed a break from typing. I thought I’d have a play with Vue. After half an hour of playing and 12 minutes of rendering I’d knocked the picture out of a ship running into a sheltered bay ahead of a […]

The West Wind Rules his Realm

A quick picture rendered in Vue 5 Infinite.

Vue Landscapes

Tuesday, August 15th, 2006

I’ve just added three new landscapes made with Vue to my site’s gallery.

Unnamed Vue Picture

Thursday, August 10th, 2006

I’d left Vue rendering this one today while I was at work. While it originally estimated 15 hours for the print size size image it turned out to need less than 5 in the end. I don’t normally use global radiosity but I did with this picture for a change. It made the roadside bushes […]

Not Kim's Eyelashes Either

Friday, August 4th, 2006

I was browsing through some clip art on a Computer Arts Projects cover disc when I came across the slightly odd picture above. It reminded me of the eyelashes that are not Kim’s but that appear as her avatar and on her Romance Fiction web site.

Dark skies fall down into another day

Friday, July 14th, 2006

A picture I’m working on using Vue 5 Infinite. The lighting is more complicated that it looks as the two trees are lit separately from the rest of the scene to make them stand out. The title of the post is two lines from the song by Enya "Storms in Africa Part II".

V5I: Lava Flow

Sunday, June 18th, 2006

An updated version of this article is now available on my website at Creating a Bifurcated Lava Flow in Vue Infinite. I’m working on a picture of a volcanic eruption. The explosion part is coming on well, the smoke not so well. Today though I wanted to get something that might be a lava flow […]

V5I: Progressive Drop Python Script

Saturday, June 17th, 2006

I wanted to create a heap of objects for a picture today but Vue’s drop puts all the selected objects on the same level. I could have selected and dropped each one by hand but that would have been laborious and I was feeling lazy so I created a Python script to do the hard […]

Not the Foggiest

Friday, May 19th, 2006

I’ve been playing around with an animation of a camera moving past the Mill in the Fairytale Places set from Daz. I’ve not got a finished animation to show off but I did do a simple picture of it that shows off the fog effect I’ve been working on quite well I think. Once I’ve […]

V5I: Centre Finder

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

While working on a picture I realised I needed to find the centre of a set of objects. I could have calculated that by hand but I decided to go for the easy option and create a little Python script. If you’d like a copy you can download Centre Finder.
