MoI really gets much attention these days... It wasn't that intuitively as I expected it to be, so I will stay at blender. :-) You render is nice, but the wood is horrible! way too blurry. And wood as a background for renders is generally way overrated! Although you try a non-smooth wood, which make...

I like the idea a lot. A flashlight render from a low perspective. looks really creepy! I you want an easy to model and quick to render point light source, just use a 1cm cube and remove one wall and make the back wall a lightsource (meshlight) and the other 4 faces just a black diffuse material. to...

ass liquids look good as far as I can tell - except milk and chocolate milk.

the milk looks like paint (too much sss) and the chocolate milk doesn't look chocolaty (is that a word?) enough. You should reduce sss and either change sss colour or increase absorbtion.

The rest looks good.

Hey guys, back to the topic please. This is not a thread about how to reduce the blurriness in maxwell renders... This method works to help produce cleaner images and solve aliasing problems in any unbiased renderer. Sorry if you didn't see any value in the advice. There definitely is value in almo...

Hi mrCarnivore. MPD is cool, no doubt about that. I'll definitely do some more research into it at some point, that's about all I can say right now. We're gonna get MPD, we're gonna get MPD... :D No, honestly: Thx for the reply and the positive response. Hope you will find time for it soon and the ...

Hey guys, back to the topic please. This is not a thread about how to reduce the blurriness in maxwell renders...

Could someone (Ono?) please say a positive thing about the likelihood and timeframe of an implementation of MPD in indigo?

With an exponent map youcan vary the value of exponent for your material according to a grey image. The lighter the grey the greater the exponent (afaik). It's the same as with albedo (colour map) with which you can vary the colour for your material with and bump map you can vary the height (bumpyne...

Omg! Let me guess, you save your 3d stuff on your system disk and chose to re-partition/format you drive during new os installing? I always have a sperate partitions for different things, one for swap file, one for os, one for programs, one for 3d stuff and photos, one for games, and a seperate disk...

Nice to see some renders from Ono. Seems to be too dark, but as mentioned earlier, this could be due to wrong expectations. Seems to match the reference image pretty well, though!

What's MoI?

Btw: Who is this triple posting Ono spamming guy? I vote to ban him from this forum! :twisted:

I don't think you understand me... I know how to use exitportals for "normal" conditions and that the hdr and sky are visible through it and that you have to cover all openings for unbiased results and such! What I don't know is, whether meshlights are actually uninfluenced by the exitportal and if ...

competition forum dead?

Hey, since radiance left, this forum got a little abandoned. :-( At least in my case it's partly because this forum is so far down the page that I rarely scroll down there... I think it's very interesting to have move competitions. Is there anyone (probably a moderator) who want to set up a new chal...

MPD is indeed a very big milestone and is on top of my personal wishlist (right after fixing sss in 0.9 :-) ).

And I even think that it's a must nowadays for a unbiased renderer. Bumpmapping is not really realistic, but cheating, if you think about it!

I fear that implementation of MPD is low prio and even if it will be implmented the memory need would be imense. I hope Ono gets his hands on a nice paper whcih explains how to do MPD without a huge memory imprint... Or maybe he can think of a good way himself. *crossing fingers*

@BbB: That sounded very philosophical, indeed.
