SkinVue and Daz Genesis 2 Figures

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

I use Daz figures a lot for making pictures to help me remember what a character looks like for a story and for NPC illustrations for games.  I do pretty much all my rendering in Vue so a certain amount of tinkering with textures is required.  I’ve used SkinVue for a long time for that […]

Sunrise City / Finally 64 Bits

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

    A quick post for a quick render – Sunrise City – my first proper test render with my new 64 Bit PC built entirely with it.  My last PC was supposed to be 64 Bit but there was a complication in the manufacturing (otherwise known as Dell used some 32 Bit parts thus […]

Cloud Picture Made with Vue 9.5 Infinite

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

One of the most popular pages here is Cloud Layer Sculpting in Vue and with all the new Vue 9.5 cloud features I thought I would be a good idea to blow the dust of it and rework it to use the new features. Here is the original for comparison… Update: I’ve been busy and […]

Blue Yonder – A Vue 9.5 Landscape

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

So this is my first proper Vue 9.5 render post. A single cloud layer over an infinite procedural terrain with two texture layers controlled by altitude and slope angle. I sometimes feel I’m cheating a bit when I post one of these because Vue does so much of the work while letting me get on […]

Accretion City

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

I’ve tried to create a picture like this for some time – a cityscape with layers of different types of building like real cities have. I started this attempt earlier today and I think its my best attempt to date. Its built up of several CityEngine created models and a few from Cornucopia 3D. The […]

Tweaking Vue News Design

Friday, September 10th, 2010

I’ve been tweaking my unofficial Vue News Blog.  There were a few of the new features available through Blogger I’d been thinking about adding for quite a while.  I’ve finally got round to switching to one of the new templates that can use them easily and rendered a custom background in Vue 8 for the […]

A render of the planet Mars made in Vue 7.5 Infinite.

Moments of Inspiration and Vue

Wednesday, April 9th, 2008

I’ve been playing with the trial version of Moments of Inspiration (MoI) a handy 3d modelling package which has a striking resemblance to Rhino. Thats unsurprising since it was created by the original develoer of Rhino. Fortunately MoI is about 1/10th the price of Rhino. The image above is a render of the second model […]

Vue Lighting Rig #10: Three Spot Lights

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

Last weeks entry in my ongoing series of theatrically inspired Vue lighting rigs is one of the most commonly used rigs: Two Spotlights from the Front. Tonight’s rig is an improved version of that rig which adds a third light behind the actor to add a little back light. During the development of theatrical lighting […]
