Welcome, Guest! A new Community Volunteers "Spin to Win" Render Challenge is now open!
Come on in, spin some dials and enter your renders!
We look forward to seeing you there!
Rendering some of Esha's still life props this afternoon, Studio Drapesfor Poser and DS. These are just simple firefly, with cast shadows and smoothed polygons. They can also be made partially transparent for an interesting effect.
Running a test on Make Human 1.2 alpha 3 FBX import into Poser. The farmer that I created in Make Human is not rigged of course, but he rendered okay with other Poser models in this scene. Make Human models are supposed to be compatible with iClone 7 if I'm not mistaken.
Good morning! Thank you so much for the kind comments and the new goodies!
I found these really nice rooms in Renderosity's Free Stuff and just did a quick little render using one of the bathrooms. There was a light set included in the Scene file so I just used that. Used one of Terradome's skies, ShaaraMuse 3D's trees and Flink's rain and added LaFemme, the cat and an old chair to complete the scene. There is a kitchen, some bedrooms and another bathroom...Jura11. Some of them are set up for Superfly renders which is what I use most of the time now. Nice stuff.
The white rabbits' picture is mostly Photoshop. When I first started rendering in Poser 4 and many years after I really couldn't get a decent image so I resorted to making it pretty in Photoshop. Talk about being really terrible with lighting! LOL I didn't use the background (the Construct)...that was always deleted and so I created my pictures in Photoshop adding skies, grass and things. I think it was around in 2013 that I discovered Flipmode's Environments and started to use Poser to do the work for me though I still did a lot of touch-up work in Photoshop. It was only recently with PoserPro 11 that I have actually been making renders that look okay right out of Poser. I still use Photoshop to enhance coloring and light and I still like furry animals and wispy hair so I use the smudge brush and paintbrush, too. I made an image back in 2009 to illustrate the difference.
Ahhhh, the secret sauce.....is artistic talent Occasionally I'll run things through PD Howler to enhance the colors, or otherwise make the image "pop", like the renders below, but you're actually painting over the image, which is why it is so unique....I love your style!
I was searching around to see if her dynamic cloth tutorial was even still available...and it is, and saw all those goodies for Poser and about had a fit....and I thought you'd probably like them too. The drapes would also be beautiful if you played with the transparency settings, but I was just aiming to get some quick renders for you to see....there are shiny fabrics, velvet, shiny floors, and matte for both the floors and walls....many combinations. I used firefly for those drapes above...so you'll just have to experiment. I'd love to see what you do with it
Here are a couple of Hayao Miyazaki's (Studio Ghibli) characters using Nana. All of my boys loved Totoro, Ponyo, Castle in the Sky. For years I tried to find a Totoro which could be used in Poser but never did. I did make a snowman one eventually...not sure what shape I used. Curious...going to have to find the file and open it.
I prefer sales too....I'm always keeping an eye out for those...usually when I'm hunting for freebies as well. It's very refreshing to see so much Poser content, old and new, suddenly becoming visible again
