Time to Show YOUR GOODIES!

More art-o-matic.  This is a much simpler technique, using only four layers in Photoshop. 

  1. CA Lineart as an Overlay w/33% opacity and 83% fill
  2. Alien Skin Exposure 6 set as Kodak Kodachrome 25(Sharp) slide film on a Difference Layer 24% opacity and 100% fill
  3. Alien Skin Bokeh 2 w/two different blur regions and square, white vignette set on a Normal Layer 100%/100%
  4. CA Raytrace (The base image that feeds into the processors above)

And yes Scott, I'd be more than happy to participate in a meeting to discuss post production of CA generated imagery.

My gosh Jon,  it would be an honor to have you join a WORKSHOP to share your thoughts on post production.  I truly appreciate your time on this Jon.  I will plan on setting up a Saturday  Workshop on a Saturday in January at 6:00 am PST.  Since you will be the host of honor and if this time does not work for you,  please give me another time that might work better for you.  I think there will be a lot of other users who would really appreciate some of your expertise.

 

Thanks so much for your offer.

6am your time, 10am mine, and 11PM Jintu's.  Mr. Chiefer is that good for you, because I'm not doing this alone.  DSH, can we move this discussion over to the chatroom?

Hi everyone! Haven't been around CT much in awhile, but I'm glad to see this old thread had been resurrected again.

I can't figure out how to post images from my phone, but you can see some of my recent stuff in the slideshow on my homepage: http://castleview3d.com

I'll create a portfolio or post some other images soon.

That's nice Rich. I tried to do some mechanical pipes once and found it was difficult to get all the pieces aligned. Where did you get the 90's and T's, and how did you align the pieces?

Remodel I am working on. First one rendered in 10 minutes if you can believe that.

I'm assuming you're playing with the focal blur intentionally here? Not sure it works for these traces though. Also, what is the dot of light in the cabinet first image? Oh, and what is the wall material in both images? Looks like a really rough concrete or something, but can't tell.

gls - might want to increase the ambient light settings under 3D view defaults and lose the focal blur as keith mentioned

if you are using it.

I really need to start doing Thea more. Seems silly to have it and the RT's are awesome, as seen in Jonathan's example

OK guys, now what is Thea?

See old forum with this same thread title there. Lot's of examples over there. Look at Kathleen's and George's stuff, among others. Long thread, so start most recent and work backwards.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. Tuned down the focal blur. Still learning vray materials and lighting and trying to keep render times to about 20 min.

That's nice Rich. I tried to do some mechanical pipes once and found it was difficult to get all the pieces aligned. Where did you get the 90's and T's, and how did you align the pieces?

 

I found the fittings on 3D Warehouse under pipe fittings.

They had several sizes and included alignment marks

which they claimed would facilitate making the connections.

It all looked good on paper but when I imported the symbols

they wouldn't perform as advertised. It took a lot of blood,

sweat and tears and lots of tweaking X, Y & Z coordinates

to line things up. Luckily I only had to do one branch and

then mirror it to the other side or I might still be pecking

away. I don't know what the deal with 3D Warehouse is.

Everybody says go there and every time I do I have some

type of problem with the imported symbols. I think it's about

time I take the bull by the horns and put some serious study

into rolling my own.

      HI All
      I am ray tracing a scene with a 3D plant (from sketchup) and the shadows are showing squares rather than the actual shadow of the plant (1 pass image shown below).  I have purposely moved the sun around to cast shadows to the back of the image as I have found manually manipulating the sun gives much better RTs than using natural sun angles (at least for me).  I attach the skp file and what the plant looks like in the object info window of CA.  Any ideas how to get rid of this square shadow?  I uncheck the ray casted shadows in camera tool pre-ray trace, and it looks better but still ray traces with the square shadow.
      Thanks in advance,
      melissa

      Hello,
       
      I have the HTC vive, steam set up and am able to tour my projects, but it renders with weird flashes of black, sometimes a rainbow effect, usually fairly blurry. I have all lights, shadows and reflections turned off. Any suggetions on how to fix this?

      Open to new work. I've been working remotely for clients for years and can easily navigate the issues that present themselves from remote work. I have plenty of references and videos demonstrating my various services. The following images are snippets from my site at www.RabbittDesign.net
       

      I offer training-while-drafting services in Chief Architect as well as training in Sketchup, Thea Render, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Procreate.
      I tend to cater to experienced designers and drafters in Chief Architect, many of which benefit from and are quite pleased with anno/layer sets, library items, toolbars, and a more cohesive folder structure and .plan and .layout files. 
      A few hours of my service may cut hours off of every project you have going forward.
      Feel free to check out my YouTube channel dedicated to all things drafting, designing, modeling and rendering in my signature below.
      Take a look at some of my recent design work in the Gallery

      I have a home design that I am working on in home designer professional 2020.  Would eventually like to get it completed and then a set of construction prints for Nashville, Tennessee.  whidh means I will need floor plans and elevation views as well as a plot plan.  I have the plot drawn with some contour lines in the drawing I have developed.  The house faces about due west (not the best but that is the lot I have.    I have attached a picture of what I want the exterior rendering to look like.  Looking for job bid.  The plan file is zipped and attached.  Following needs to get done and then a front rendering and the file returned with the updates.  (Can pay via paypal etc)  
      1. Master bedroom vaulted ceiling following rafters up to height of 12 feet then flat across.  House rafters will be 2x8 or 2x6 depending on span.  
      2. Fix the roof planes
      3. Shed roof with 2 in 12 slope over the back deck.  Extends out about even with the master.  This is asphalt shingles.  Ceiling will follow the rafters
      4. The peaks (side and front larger dormer) should be board and batten not sided, the rest of the house sided, the foundation walls are stone
      5. Make sure chimney carries through to the roof from fireplace in family room.  Chimney is stone where it can be seen outside of house.
      6. The basement foundation walls connecting to the crawl space (unfinished area) should be only 5' tall (it would just be in one area)
      7. Front porch is to have a metal roof, rest of house is asphalt shingles (charcoal color but not black)
      8. Stairs should be 42" wide and should be fixed . Want them closed underneath. Somehow I cant get this to look right
      9. Need a front rendering showing view of the house for presentation to client
      10. Need file updated to reflect these changes and has to be readable with Home Designer Pro 2020
      11. Floor deck for both the first and second floor are 11-7/8 TJI with 3/4 subfloor (I think I have this right).
       
      At any rate, looking for quote to get this done.  Thanks for looking.
