There really shouldn't be a gap, but the rod halves should have different precedence values.

Re: Swiss Army Knife

Basically a spam bot found a reference to swiss army knifes and decided it was a good opportunity to do some advertising.

Re: Neoo's Work in Progress thread

Lets do some math. You say your ship has 6+ billion passengers. On average, lets assume every passenger needs 50 m2 of living space (wich is a lot. An average European has about 40 m2, an average Chinese living in a city closer to 10), and about same for all kinds of everyday business + some more fo...

Re: Neoo's Work in Progress thread

It's still too big for any kind of meaningful detail. In the top view, the biggest building in the world (Dubai airport terminal 3 according to Wikipedia) would be less than one pixel large. It would blend in the noise. Bjur Kalifa (tallest building in the world) would also be less than one pixel ta...

Re: Neoo's Work in Progress thread

Such a big ship deserves some pretty big elevators :) Honestly? Its way too big. I don't think I've ever seen an elevator that big - even in high pedestrian volume areas like subways or airports. Spaceships can be huge but the human used stuff needs to be relatively human sized I think. Just my 2 c...

Re: Night Render Issues

One good and tested solution to the lack of ambient lightning is to use an ambient light source... Say, a huge, blueish low intensity emitter or night-time hdri-map. It's possible to fake moonlight with the sun/sky model using light layers, but it's doesn't work very well with other light sources du...

Re: Noise distortion / bulge map

There sure seems to be something really fishy going on. These are two (rather extreme) closeups of same spot of the same test scene with the same map. The only difference (that I know of) is that the first map is 32bit exr and the second 8 bit png (reduced from the same image in photoshop). The 8bit...

Re: The RANCH renderfarm now supports Indigo!

Hey, RenderFred I noticed the flashing price sign on the right of the page from $2.10 / 1.52€ per minute How do you access the $2.10/min rate? Sapphire is the lowest I saw @ $7/min when submitting a job. Thanks, awesome work ;p The price is that when you buy a $24 000 refill pack. Obviously that's ...

Re: Simple Renderings Thread

Very nice! How do you define the "real" value for environment? Are they all standardized or something? And how much does the double glass darken the environment? Because it really shouldn't, should it?

By the way, the Aalto Beehive is made of matte white aluminium, not glass.

Re: Simple Renderings Thread

I just hate renders that are mimicking crappy photography, it's bad enough to see actual crappy photographs... If you could have the ultimate studio setup worth thousands, why would you choose to use the crappy integrated flash instead? It's a very nice and absolutely beautifully detailed scene, it ...

Are you a student, freelancer or plan to work in a special field like ArchViz? im an architecture student but im a...
