I understand, Spain is a beautiful land, nice climat, nice people... In Moldova, the situation was not the same, I suppose. Yes, the job of "image maker" is fascinating, and you have to be interested on a lot of things, photo, materials, optical, plants and more and more... And the result of your work is tangible and often gives you satisfaction (if not, you have to ask for much money ;o)) nXting is so exiting!
Hi, Nina, I don't know if spain is the good place to find a job in this time of crisis. I'm very happy to see what you have to show, with such a little time of nXt learning. I think you have to keep on, you will soon have a level that will emphasize your sensibility. Your sensibility is the crucial thing to produce good pictures, with a renderer like nXt, which save your time with the top quality. The time saved can be used to work on the picture in other directions (gimp, pshop).
I've seen something in your job that you have to correct: the tiling of your textures. Textures are, for me, the parameter the most important. I spend long hours to make some of them, with always a good size, to avoid tiling effect. Xcuse my bad english. One question, why did you choose Spain? And how long?
Around 10 years in this graphic world, and what I find as the better, for the price and productivity, is nXt. You are new in this world, but I feel that with your talent, and sensibility, you will make great things. Do you want to make pictures for construction, or other domain? I'd like to see other images that you did...
Thanks, Nina, I was architecture student till the 5th year, but I find more pleasure in image construction as in building construction. In architecture, conception is a good thing, but they are so many bad things in the architecte job, that can't hold on... You learn 3ds max? do you prefer to use it for modeling as autocad? I used it sometime, but makes me spend too much time... In fact, the better soft, is the soft that you know very well... Your pictures are good to, I'd like to see more of yours...
"Path is OK. Peter Milner has done some stunning results using hybrid engine, though it requires really long rendering times for noise clear images. For his job he has got super powered rendering cluster with n² cores and lots of GB of RAM. The…"
"Is this done with hybrid render engine or the basic one?Comment not about rendering: Stone material is visibly repeating and I thing also out of scale (too big). Looks more like wallpaper, as there are windows and the wall is too thin to be made of…"
"Hmmm... I'll take a look at this in nXt for AutoCAD when I get a chance.. it should work.
I doubt if the specular maps will work-- I don't think the textured meshes use standard materials. You are reminding me of why I need to…"
"Peter, I was able to ad all specular and bump maps in Blender right, but for some reason nXt isn't recognizing it at all. The only texture it passes through is the main diffuse map.I am thinking of modifying the basic material (with only…"
"Roy, all I get from yours is a blue statue. However, George's works perfectly.
Another question - is it possible to use the specular maps to change the properties of the different materials e.g. shiny shoes?"
