Finished Works and Works in Progress / Glass
« on: May 04, 2020, 12:02:55 pm »
Hello everyone,
Today I wanted to challenge the transparent class material.
So I modeled a wine glass that will be used for my experiments. My model is rather simple and has few faces but has been converted to a subdivision. I then rendered with the ART Ray Tracer (scene mode, standard lighting, AA = 100, no shadows yet).
Unfortunately the glass is still empty, but I rather see it as an opportunity to test a dielectric class material  ;).
The cracked effect in the area surrounded in yellow leaves me a little perplexed ... Is it due to too low AA, the environment, the use of a subdivision or something else?

General Anim8or Forum / How long will take my render??
« on: September 11, 2010, 11:51:26 am »
I usually make a low quality test render (AA off) of my scenes to control if everything seems OK.
I had the idea today to evaluate the render time with the time taken by this test render. I tryed it with a small scene and come to this result:
render time for the quality render
if AA=4 : 4 x render time with AA off
if AA=9 : 9 x render time with AA off
etc...(I tried 16 and 25 too, I presume it is the same for all value, and that some of you don't need a test to know that!)
Simple and I think helpfull to limit the AA to get a correct render time (I actually have a render in the oven with AA set at 49 that will certainly take +/- 70 hours on my poor old computer...Boring.
It can work too with the image size (a 800x600 render will probably take 4x the time of a 400x300 render)

General Anim8or Forum / Focal blur

I'd like to try to add DOF to some of my projects (using depht channel).
Is there a free software to do this? (I actually use Artweaver 1.0 for UV MAps and after effects but I think it cannot do that :'().

General Anim8or Forum / Reference image in sequence or scene mode
« on: August 24, 2009, 03:40:22 pm »
Perhaps a crazy question! ;D Knows anybody if there is a way to add a reference image in sequence or scene mode? I think this can help me to add good keys.
(Yes, I'm now playing with animating ;))

General Anim8or Forum / Two Sided material
« on: August 24, 2009, 03:30:16 pm »
Just a small question about two sided materials...
I try to make a two sided material with a texture (diffuse) on each face, on the workview I get the expected effect but in the render, the texture of the front side comes on the two sides...
I find no answer in the manual. Has somebody already tried to make this? Did you get the same result?

My new project is one more time anything with wings but not a plane.
Has anybody else projects with insects to post here?
I'd like to see how other users makes this...
Thank you.

I'm a newbie from Belgium.
I love Anim8or but with my job, I have unfortunally not a lot of time for it...
Here is my first send made with Anim8or, Terranim8or and some ideas I found here (thank you!)
