Anim8or Christmas Card
« on: December 24, 2007, 07:40:29 am »

I forgot to order my Christmas cards this year, so today i decided to open Anim8or and see what i could come up with, well its not very good, but i think Anim8or did the rendering very well, it only took 2 hours at 1175 x 891 px, and it has 10 lights all casting shadows, I submitted it online to my local printer and had my cards printed in 1 hour. so thanks Steve and Anim8or for saving my butt this year, could not have done it without ya!  ;)


I would have uploaded the file if anyone wanted it, but the final size is 110 MB

Looks pretty good. Making your own cards is the way to go!  :)

I am wondering why the rug, the fireplace, the picture above it all look so gray. The rest of the image is so rich.

I think you may have forgotten to set the diffuse to 1 and ambient to 0 for the grayer textures.

Some nice textures there, especially the polished timber table.  Love the candelabra.

Very nice work indeed Nate, I love how you got the lighting just right, not too much and not too little.  The rug does look a little pale in comparison to the other wonderfully rich textures, but I don't think it detracts too much from the overall image.  Well done!

Spicy, you shouldn't post anything to a topic that's over 4 months old :( (don't feel too bad, just keep this in mind)

i don't think it's wrong (per se) to post in old topics, but if you do do it, it might be a good idea to start your post with something like

*resumes thread several months later*

... just to help avoid confusing people?

Almost Coo: http://hihosilver.anim8or.org/Tutorials/rendering-tutorial/rendering_tut_final.html
And everyone please stop posting in this topic.  It's very old.  If you don't understand how to get shadows working next time, search on the forum, then if you find nothing feel free to start your own topic, but don't post in an old one.

I don't think that's wrong hihosilver. It's just a shame to see a grand peice of work forgotten over the time. But it will help. I shall stop posting in this topic. Well I suppose you are right. Sorry

Spicy

Thanks for bringing this to attention. Those shadows really make the scene, as does the glow in the fireplace.
But remember well, don't post in old topics because.... err ... umm .... because they are old.

Umm, why don't we post in old topics and instead leave them to rot? Even when they are little gems like this one?
