Thanks Miss B! I used an old HDRI from DimensionTheory that was made for the Reality plugin. I'd hoped to use it with LUX Render DS in DS3Pro, but couldn't figure out how to apply it at the time, and I couldn't afford the Reality plugin either. They work really nice with Iray now though!That's a beautiful render Shanarah. You got the sunset lighting just right.
Yeah, about that, I am so misfortunate that of all the times I would have loved to sit and create ALL DAY LONG, I have no computer able to do the task. My render computer died before the first of the year.....sometime last April, actually, when it started to thumb its nose at me and just reboot on its own mid renders/set-ups, I HAVE BEEN DEAD IN THE CREATIVE WATERS EVER SINCE FROM UNWILLINGNESS TO INVEST IN YET ANOTHER TOO EXPENSIVE COMPUTER, (sorry not shouting damn cap lock key). Really frustrating.So many great renders and so much talent, big question is, has this talent always been there and artists were just hiding it or is the 'downtime' the stay at home orders have given everyone time to explore. Whatever the reason it is great to see such a range of ideas make it into the light of day. I hope that such talents are on show long after the pandemic is only a memory.
Yeah, hearing you. I do renders in little sections with older software (like each piece and then assemble in 2D software). My biggest computer will not run the latest software. I have absolutely no clue how big a computer would have to be to do some of the pictures that seem to be all one render, but I'm pretty sure I can't afford one of those. (Not on the very limited income I have.) It takes me days to assemble some things making sure all the shadows are right. Even so, there are some things (like Whisper) which almost do not run even when they're the only thing loaded in to be posed and rendered.Yeah, about that, I am so misfortunate that of all the times I would have loved to sit and create ALL DAY LONG, I have no computer able to do the task.
