Re: Basic ISL questions

a) What range of values does maxCosTheta() take? (in the example it's maxTheta() but indigo spat out an error saying that didn't exist so I assumed it was maxCosTheta()) b) I started my tests with the rim shader approach and I wanted the progression to have a steeper curve. So I "cooked up" this fun...

Re: Basic ISL questions

Do you want to model it as a separate sphere which is slightly larger than the planet sphere, or directly integrated in the planet surface material? In the second case it would not suffer of the energy loss problem but then you cannot use bump or phong on your surface or it will look weird. In the ...

Re: Basic ISL questions

That might do the trick, I'll pursue both this one and the one galinette proposed. Or any other if someone else proposes another alternative.

Re: Basic ISL questions

It may not be so obvious on the picture but basically the material/shader should be transparent where the normals are facing the camera and should gradually become opaque at the edges.

Basic ISL questions

Ok so for the scene I'm working on I need a rather specific "material" which I think is only possible using shaders, and since I've never actually written one before, well here I am ((Yes I did check the manual's examples)) Basically I'm looking to make an "atmosphere" type shader which I think woul...

No, I scaled it so it would match the reference, I didn't see the point in making it to scale especially since I don't have any accurate date on how big to make it.

Re: Need help

There are many images from the Gallery which feature an intense amount of leaves, it's definitely doable.

Tehee :) Not my design though, It's a replica of the Endar Spire's bridge from KotoR.

Re: Borgleader's Learning Progress Thread

Looks nice, I would try it in a game engine tough (Marmoset Toolbag, UDK, Source....) since it can be a huge difference on how blender render normal maps and a game engine. Are you going to texture it? :) Yeah, I have the UDK installed so I'll be trying it in there (may also try Unity). As for text...
