I'm sure you do ! ;)

Hopefully it's something that can be set with an update of Qt ?


Cheers,
Laurent aka Tartiflette. :)

Is there a way to make a change in the compositing window so that
both images would be 100 % visible - the background image and the overlay rendered image?

Great!

Is it possible to define multiple target object uids? Or would it be more correct to make a separate scatter for each target object? Just thinking of two different objects occupying same position...

Making multiple different scatters should work.

Seems quite slow to warm up: I changed the density to 200 and it choked for a while. Spent a lot of time subdividing then didn't get past processing the environment map... Not trying it on my best setup as I am overseas atm, so could just be a technical issue on my side.

Hi Tom,
Bear in mind that the density is number of objects per square metre.
So if you have a large area, that will be a lot of objects. (with a density of 200 objects/m^2).

I know, I'm mostly whining :) It would be great to be able to do 10 000 blades of grass / m^2, for example, but I suppose even that gets out of hand quite quickly :P

Tom you work with Blender right? In case you don't I can highly recommend Carbon Scatter 2.

I know it's not a solution to suggest other workarounds or a purchase, but quite honestly no matter what 3d program or scatterer I ever had to deal with in my lifetime, CS just blows everything out of the water so hard it's not even funny. It works great with Indigo as well and exports very fast too.

Can't speak for Maya, but if you happen to do stuff with Max or C4D as well I'd really say if you once have it, there's no way back. (Not an e-on salesman here.)

Made some viewport speedtests a month or so ago. The lower left is C4D's render instances.

Ah unfortunately I work almost exclusively with Blender + Rhino these days :P Haven't had much reason to switch, and it's hard enough to get into two APIs as it is! I've had to do a lot of pure production lately, so I've just had to buckle down with what I know in order to get everything out. Will take a look at CS though, sounds interesting!

displacement maps with blended materials crash every time. :-(

There was a crash when changing displacement in the GUI, this is fixed now for the next release.

I might be wrong, but are there enough reflections in the arch glass? My window and glass panels are looking more like soap bubbles than glass ATM.

I already used this feature quite frequently in my latest projects and am very happy with the results!
Arch glass doesn't work well for curved glass, only plane simple windows or glass tables.

A quick comparison render with ArchGlass enabled and disabled should proof if its working correctly :)
