Where did today go?

Monday, January 29th, 2007

Finished off two pictures in Vue 6 that will hopefully make it into Rag 52. Quite pleased with the first one. It may be the best picture I’ve turned out of Vue. Also played round trying to get a better Vue grass displacement material for large areas and terrains. The one I posted last night […]

And in a Packed Saturday…

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

Well I’ve had a busy day of doing all the usual Saturday stuff plus messing around with Vue quite a bit. I’ve sent off a draft of a picture that hopefully will be used for the next Ragnarok. I’ve tried out a couple of little ideas I wanted to play around with. I’ll share one […]

Vue Picture: Ardent Veridian

Friday, January 12th, 2007

A render using atmospheres and plants from Linda Daireaux’s Incredibly Lush Tropical Paradise. The ecosystem covering the island is a modified version of one that came in the pack.

STEEPVM Social, Technology and Economics

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

Social This area covers a variety of topics including changes in attitude, population change, fashion. Changes in attitude cross over with Values later.

[I’ve added an updated version of this tutorial to my site: Punching Holes in the Sky] Controlling Godrays in Vue 6 Sunbeams, called Godrays by e-on, are one of the new features in Vue 6. They appear when heavy clouds break up the light coming from the sun light source. The atmosphere must be a […]

Vue 6 Infinite Sunset

Sunday, November 12th, 2006

A quick render of one of my old scenes using Vue 6 Infinite with one of the new out of the box spectral atmospheres and global ambience for lighting. The earlier Vue 5 Infinite renders can be seen in my post from a few months ago: Sunset Pictures.

Vue 6 Mirror Ball Test Render

Saturday, November 4th, 2006

Messing around with Vue 6 tonight I wen’t back to an old idea of doing a picture with a mirror ball in it. Just the end result of playing around which proves the mirror ball can be made to work in Vue 6.

My First Vue 6 Render

Thursday, November 2nd, 2006

Naked Victoria wearing nothing but spectral atmosphere. My first render with Vue 6 Infinite. Not my normal type of render but I was playing around with the new clouds. Then I thought I’d try poser import out. Then I thought I’d combine the two and do the first NVWNbaSA picture. Rendered with user settings and […]
