Title: ART syntax please?
Post by: ENSONIQ5 on March 20, 2008, 09:02:13 am
I have had a bit of a fiddle with ART, and I am afraid I do not understand the interface at all.  Could someone provide a more detailed "how to" for this old dog?

Heh

I've been waiting for someone to ask the same question :)

I think you download the examples and peruse them.

I either don't entirely understand the interface, but the examples helped me to find out how to use it. Here is a short guide:

It works the same way for all the material effects... The only difference is when you want to make reflection (using 'Anim8or' class) - you don't have to create the 'class' attribute because it is 'animn8or' by default...

Aha!  Thanks guys, this and a bit of experimentation has gleaned considerable results.  I shall be like a pig in mud over Easter fiddling with this!  Ray traced reflections!  How seriously cool is this!

One thing I have noticed, the renderer does not seem able to render environment panoramas any more, nor do reflective objects pick them up.  I shall fiddle further in this area, methinks, and post the results.

This is just excellent.  Here's a quick test render.

Love ART, Steve.  Seriously cool.
