Re: December 2010 Competition - Steampunk (extended to 23rd

Hi! Been awhile since I've dropped in, but was surfing through and spotted this thread. And just so happens, I have something to offer that's kinda steampunk-ish. Wow, am I cutting it close or what?! :wink: Wish I had time to dress it up with an environment, but I'm in the middle of a fairly intense...

Re: Odonata Epiprocta

Yes, I think I may have made them a bit thick. I was trying to give the reflective surfaces some dimension, so they wouldn't look like simple Tiffany-style glass panes.

Possibly I should have used some other technique for skin thick semi-transparent reflective textures.

Odonata Epiprocta

Hi everyone, I posted this also over in the Sketchucation forum, but since it's Indigo, I thought I'd throw it over here as well. * * * * * * * * Here's a few dragonfly constructions I've been working on. I have maybe ten cumulative hours on the modeling and another 2-4 on the lighting, staging and ...

Re: Virtual Optics

Thanks for the kind comments. Meelis - I looked at that complex assembly and thought I'd give it a shot. I've yet to consider a complex camera lens. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v606/Cyberdactyl/Optics/body1.jpg I lifted the lens shapes as best I can, and started to look at the different variab...

Re: Open call for techniques and tutorials requests...

Wow, Whaat. . . yes, I'd love to read some insight on those topics.

But, really, all you need to do is go through the whole process and thoughts of your bedroom animation.

Virtual Optics

Hi everyone, I posted this at Sketchucation and thought it might be pertinent here. Also was wondering if anyone else has experimented with this ability of Indigo. . and I suppose, most any rendering engine. * * * * * * * * * After much experimentation with Indigo's material attributes, most especia...

Re: Basic Question on Night and Day

Once again, it was my mistake. I indeed wasn't choosing 'SketchUp Background Color'. I would have sworn I had chosen 'Sun and Sky' with black toggled in the past and had gotten a black scene. As to the different perspectives causing some RGB's to not work, I'm thinking I had the power turned too low...

Basic Question on Night and Day

I just can't figure it out. Sometimes when I want a night scene (no lighting except my own RGB or Blackbody) and I check "Black" under Render Settings and Environment, I get a lit sky and sometimes when I want a lit sky and uncheck Black I get a night scene. And much of the time I can't change it no...

Re: Indigo-Fatal Error - I need Your help

Thanks WHAAT! Here's another easy fix I'm sure. I borrowed some components from another SU drawing that seems to render with colors already set and renders great, but I get this path error; D:\shares\HOME\dcom\SmithM\Colour/Ti.nk D:\shares\HOME\dcom\SmithM\Colour/Au.nk It still pushes thru and rende...

Re: Indigo-Fatal Error - I need Your help

Hi everyone. I haven't posted in a long time. Glad to see Indigo is really taking off. I am having what appears to be a similar problem with 1.0.9.

Sorry...I'm a moron.

I didn't put the SkIndigo folder in the Plugin Folder. :oops:

I have it working again, but I still don't see anything in the window under LOAD|SAVE SWITCH| UI.
