ASL Scripts / Re: ASL Scripts Database
« on: February 02, 2011, 07:41:14 am »
my first try on writing a script...
1. csv_export_plugin_0_1_7. Tof
4. Export to OpenBVE .csv object
5. Read me included
It works now but there are a few thing I don't understand...
Why is the result very bad if I don't first go to Lithunwrap and triangulate my model there?
And why was my model inverted? (I have to switch Y and Z vertex coordinate to get something correct) --> Fixed in V0.1.6, the Z-Axis is different in csv (just to invert it!)
Why was my texture inverted? (only in Y Axis, I invert it too) ???
If somebody can take a look and explane :D

Nice work Lynn! I especially like the light.

Nice work Janro! What a shame tere is only one project here... This challenge idea give me inspiration (in te way of the Raxx's suggestion, "optical illusion, image that seems to move"), I'll probably try something in this way later (probably end december).

Wonderfull Lynn, but the dinner is not yet served, there is nothing to eat ont the table! (just joking ;) )
And thank you for the good comments, it was good to finish this one (I still have an unachieved pig in the throat, I'll try to finish it, day).

Here is my entry. I made the adds I wanted.
For the credits:
- Textures (wood and tiles) from (customized in Artweaver for my use)
- Beans: from "Colruyt" (low cost supermarket in Belgium)
- Modelling, texturing, an render in anim8or
- Accessory renders in anim8or (depht channel, light rays in the shadow of the glass, shadow of the fork, AO)
- post production: Artweaver (the most) and Gimp (DOF)
Good luck to everybody joining the challenge!

Glad to see that more people join the game, I hope to see a lot of finished works (mainly mine, of course ;) )
I'm now done with my main render! It has taken 60 hours but I find it wonderfull how anim8or made the diffractions throw the glass!
Now going to accessory renders and post production (AO, DOF, trying to simulate the light rays on the table in the shadow of the glass and add the shadow of the fork that curiosly dont appears...)

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)

How you say Maximilianibus, I think it is a little too dark.
Some progress for my dinner. Not a great dinner, my wife is certainly angry! >:(

Nice challenge idea and the first test renders here are nice.
Maximilianibus; its a good start, you could try to make your texture fit better (apply face to face or try a UV MAp) and perhaps subdivide one more time.
Her is what I have so far, I hope to have time to finish my scene this time...

Congratulations for the nice works everybody! (Daniel99, can you show us about your UV mapping?)
I had unfortunnally no time to work on my one so I have no final entry... :'(
"Rendez-vous" in a next challenge!

Nice start Josmic8or an d DragonSlayer, I hope a lot of ather join the game, It's a fun one, the first time it is allowed to make the pig!
Some progress on my side...
I'm almost done with modeling, just to subdivide one time and add/adjust a few details.
Hope I can make this, the UV mapping and begin the texture tomorow. It's important for me to complete the pig this weekend because I need time to do the scene I want (only a still render, but rather complex)

I'll try to make something for this one!
Here is what I have after 3 hours of learning an modeling... I hope I can finish it.
But this is not yet at all the outcome I want :-\

There is another trick I read on the forum a few months ago and that works good:
Create your object with 20 sections, in point edit mode select all the edges between the sections, select the bevel tool and adjust... done, you get 40 sections! (and you can experiment to use that in other ways, it's really cool)
Hope I explane correctly and this can help.
