@JA12 thanks for yet another great solution :yes:
Thanks BoFZeVampire and Photox both your tips worked.
@BoFZeVampire that's quite a complicated node setup, how do you even know how and what to use for getting the end result? very impressing.
I've tested apply the array and separate by loose parts but the only thing i seem to get different colors with is from the random output and that doesn't produce the six colors or in the...
Lets say you have an array with 6 objects, can you give them 6 separate colors?
It's been some time since i used Cycles but i thought you could do something like in my screenshot for this....
Check Transparent and you're ok :-)
Btw... no images are included in your file.
wow... just WOW!!!
It's absolutely fantastic, modeling, details, textures, lighting, rendering, mood... stunningly beautiful.
Fantastic work and great renders, congratulations :yes:
You can put objects on a separate layer and not include that layer when rendering.
Those objects will still show as reflections but not seen by the camera themselves even though they are...

Insanely great :yes:
Is grass and leaves particles?
Rendered with Cycles?
What render times did you get on those bad boys?
Absolutely beautiful :yes:
I've always got best speed on GPU (cuda) using scene dimension/4
For 1920x1080 scene set tiles to 480x270
That way the scene is divided even and there's no half tiles rendering.
I haven't tried on...
Beautiful work Paulina :yes:
Maybe the walls and ceiling is a little to dark, the room kind of disappears a little.
Other than that... fantastic.
Do you feel it's easier to work with Cycles...
cekuhnen, starting to look good now.
Would you share the Blender/V-ray scene please,
I have V-ray for Blender but have never started learning it and would like to test your scene and learn a...
Why is the V-Ray image so blurry?
Not that it has anything to do with these renders... just wonder :rolleyes:
Beautiful Vicky :yes:
Wow.. what a cool shape on the screw-torus thingy :p
How did you make that?
These absolutely wonderful.
You've got such a nice style.
Happy New Year from Sweden :yes:
Great image Alin!
Kind of a Salvador Dalí surreal feeling to it.
Didn't you use V-ray before, and wouldn't it be faster and cleaner for this kind of render?
With camera start/end clipping you can set from where the camera should start and end see/render.
You can actually have the camera outside a wall or (box in my example) and have the camera...
Your tree base is unchecked for render, that's why it doesn't show :eyebrowlift:
FastLeaD, do you still have that lag?
I have exactly the same configuration on my iMac 27 as you, running 10.9 and have no lag at all.

Lovely, great work :yes:
Just do scale and shift X to exclude scaling in x axis.
S then SHIFT+X

Camstudio is quite good
EZVID seems nice to (haven't tried it)
For Windows, OS X or Linux?
It looks fantastic!
The animated parts are good.
The repetitive grass and stone textures are fine for this illustrative purpose.
Well said Jake!
I try to be as straight as possible with critique and point out if i think something could be improved if they tried to this or that but also try point out what is good.
What is the target for your videos?
Is it the final delivering format for for playing on TV from an USB stick or Youtube or Vimeo?

Looking forward to see the finished movie.
Please consider a short making of movie as well ;-)
I believe Andrei uploaded new demo builds to the Chaos site a month ago which should have fixed the date error thing.
I see that the latest builds on Chaos site is from Jul 08, 2013 is that the...
It looks awesome!
The scale of the chairs looks a bit off though.
The chairs are very small... or the room height and windows are to high.
A little more light on the couch would be nice as well....
Here's a 100% crop of the glossy text.

I took a look at your blend file and made some tests, is this the kind of glossiness you were aiming for?
I used the Blender Renderer (BI) instead of Cycles because i think it's...
A few things i'd like to change...
1. The camera seems to wide, it looks like the walls are falling in, if wider then 35 try setting it back to 35.
2. Camera angle seems a bit to...
About a year later and it's nudge time again ;-)
Render Shots doesn't work in Blender 2.68.
Would it be possible to update it?
After lots of beers you'll probably solve it.
Or at least make something interesting...lol
I made a quick test scene and rendered it with CPU only on two machines with 10.7.4 and 10.8.4 with the official Blender 2.67b r57123 and 2.68RC and i don't get any sun problem.
I just tested your app and it's simply amazingly good.
It's so easy and fun to use.
You should sell it so you could make some money from it.
I'd love to have a native OS X program for...
Maybe a HDRI image could help giving some nice real world reflections.
The lighting and reflections are a bit to controlled now.
Other than that great job!
How was the...
Thank you for providing these textures.
It's highly appreciated!
Thanks... that worked even better :yes:
Double click the viewer doesn't work for me but disconnect/reconnect the viewer and the backdrop image turns up.
Sometimes it even takes two reconnects.

I have CUDA up n running fine on my old Mac Pro 1.1 with a standard GTX 570 2,5 GB in OS X 10.7.4 which needed a few edited files with instructions from Netkas site.

Try do repair permissions on your HD.
Maybe there's some cache needing deleting as well.
Is it only with Blender you get this lag?
And you use Blender 64 Bit version?
Only time i have experienced file browser lag is when i have disks that have gone in sleep mode and my bookmarks point to one of them.
They then spin up and everything is back to normal again.
Good job guys :eyebrowlift:
But where should i select "premultiply"?
0.1.5 - Blender official 2.67 - OS X 64Bit
Modeling and lighting is beautiful.

I'm just trying the Rigid Body stuff in 2.66 and can't seem to get simple falling objects on ground to not partially intersect with the ground before they stabilize themselves.
Sweet, great job :eyebrowlift:
Absolutely stunning work
I updated the image with a 1500 sample version and changed the font.
Personally i like a clean straight forward font.
Yes i used the Bolt factory addon...
I played around with the bullet physics in 2.66 and rendered it in Cycles 800 samples.
The full size image has some nice texture details.
Full size 2560x1600 here

It renders fine for me with official 2.66a in OS X 10.7
Do you get the same clipping with another Blender version?
Anyone please, i'm stuck :mad:

I really like your scene, great modeling.
Is it BI or Cycles render?
My "personal" critique is that most edges are a little to hard.
The bump is to high o the wall.
The colors are to...
I had to test a few versions before getting the "vray_adv_20004_maya2010_leopard_x86.zip" working in 10.8.2 following sebastians tutorial.
That's a 32bit version 2.00.04 from Apr 28, 2011.
I'm still jealous of how much control Cinema 4D has over the text geometry without having to convert the text.
Jump to around 5 min, the really interesting part is at 8 min.
Josh, that last picture is looking fantastic!
I'm looking forward to your tutorial.
Will it include making that texture?
I thought so to at first... but make sure to set each camera save directory and it works fine in official 2.64a, it also worked fine in r51570 and r52037 from graphical.org that i've tried it on both...
As Sago said,
You can render one scene as one animation and switching between several cameras either as an animation or as still shots.
This is quite handy if you would like to render a few...
place57, Thanks for the tip.
I realized that each time i changed the path i needed to remove and set a new key frame for the camera ending position otherwise the movement went all weird.
I'm not getting any luck animate the camera.
I want to start with the camera close up on an object 10 meters up from ground rotated in Y -90° then slowly move the camera backwards rotating it...
I like the light and mood and details, great modeling.
1. The trees outside is a bit boring
2. Is the chair a little to big?
How was the scene lit?
YafaRay 0.1.1 is for Blender 2.49 only.
If you want to use YafaRay in Blender 2.6x you have to use 0.1.2
I'm not sure if YafaRay 0.1.2 works in Blender 2.62.

Then download the 32 or 64 bit exporter

2.64 in OS X 10.7.4 with GTX 570 2,5 GB doesn't work with Cycles on GPU/CUDA :(
(CUDA kernel compilation failed, see console for details.)

Absolutely beautiful work!
How did you light the scene, and what amount of samples/render times did you get?
The couch material looks scary though, other than that impressive modeling and beautiful compositions and renders.
What graphic card do you use and what kind of render times do you...
As Richard said... get a mouse with a scroll wheel, you need it to work efficient.
Are you using Blender Internal render or Cycles?

It's a temp solution...
I hope it worked as you wanted, it does for me :)
Your picture is very dark and hard to see what it is.
Yes, use the excellent Addon "Render Shots" by Aaron Symons which will do exactly what you want :yes:
Or use a two cylinders with two arrays each then two boleans on the plane but don't apply the boleans or arrays just hide from render, that way you can always tweak them if needed.
