General Anim8or Forum / Shiloette-ish problem
« on: August 05, 2008, 06:34:42 pm »
ok, I'm working on this snow globe model, but when I put the building inside the globe I get something a little unusual. When I render it with scanline, it works fine, but when I reder it with the ART renderer the things inside turn to a grey shiloette:


ART renderer:

I want to  use the ART renderer so I can have the refraction effect or the reflection effect. I've tried it with both attributes and I get the same results. Does anyone know why it's doing this? If there's a way to change it I would be greatful to know how.



General Anim8or Forum / Depth Channel Movie redering...

Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to do depth channel rendereing in video like an alpha channel? I don't think there is...If not I was wondering If that could possibly be incorporated into the next version of anim8or Steve, it would be very useful for me...It would be RAD!!!

I don't exactly know what shaders are sorry. I'm sure I should by now. I don't believe so but I don't know. And the faces are the way they are supposed to be. I already tried flipping them too.

General Anim8or Forum / ART Rendered glitch? with textures...
« on: May 14, 2008, 01:34:50 am »
I have been working on a short movie in anim8or, which involves this room. I have a sort of metal/concrete looking texture for the floor. It looks fine when I render it with scanline:

However, when I render it with the ART renderer I get nothing on the floor:

I tried adjusting everything I could think of to fix the problem. I changed the material properties, I replaced the object again, I tried with and without lights, etc... I can't think of anything else. Any suggestions? Is this an actual glitch/bug?
By the way sorry the renders aren't antialiased I did that to save time cause my computer's so freaking slow...When I render the movie I'll be doing it on another computer...:)

Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / A shadow bug
« on: April 14, 2008, 09:51:10 pm »
I may have encountered a problem. I am not using the ART ray tracing engine( I can't really because my computer is so slow :( ) I get this shadow over the robot's right arm that shouldn't be there. Is there a way I can fix this? I have tried movie the camera and light a bit and that didn't help.

well, I guess I fixed it. I had put reflective instead of reflection in the string command box thingy. anyway I got it to work. this nrew renderer is awsome. Thanks a million STEVE!! :)

I seem to have encountered a glitch. :( I have a room of mirrors which renders fine qith the scanline renderer, but when I try to render it with the ART renderer I get nothing but a solid grey color. I'll try to post an image later.
