3.3 Promo Artwork

Postby tsialas » Sat Mar 03, 2007 14:05

I'm working with fluid dynamics for a personal project and I couldn't help but whip these out- the 3.3 release is haunting my thoughts too.

This one is called "Reloaded", inspired by the new sexy blood red colour in the 3.3 branding.

Very clever, how did you make this effect?

Well there's four software packages involved in the image, not that user friendly if you ask me, but if you get the hang of them you'll be getting less headaches and more smiles overtime.

First off you need a 3D Modelling app, I use Maya and 3DS MAX which are the equivalent of Blender (included and preinstalled in Sabayon's 3.26 DVD).

To make the fluid you need some kind of particle generator (water, fire, air etc.) I use Realflow, which is available for Linux.

After you put all this together you need to render the image, which is basically the process of calculating codependencies and values between various elements in your virtual scene. (e.g. Lighting properties) I used Maxwell Render for this scene- Blender comes with a renderer preinstalled, which is a decent starting point.

And finally some post-processing was done in Photoshop (colour correction, patching up parts you're not happy with), although after a week of using the GIMP, I'll probably be migrating to that pretty soon.

Hope this helps! If it bored you, well, you asked for it =]

waiting for your images

looks like you're using some kind of area light or radiosity, and seems like a noise shade reduction needs to be turned on, or levels of antialias need to be bumped up

the render engine? no-- why does it kill render times like crazy if you bump up settings?
