hello,
I`ve got question about competition. Can I use my own older models in competition or must be all new ? I`d like make something from Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Ive got some part of models so is good to save time for render.

ieatfish- good to see nice render in competition. Congratulation ! :)

Nickname: spills
Version of Indigo used: Indigo 2.4.10 x64 Windows
Rendering time / CPUs: forever and ever
List of tools used (and external artwork, with links) : hammers and nails

Placeholder post. If I get a spare night, I'll try to whip something up, though it doesn't seem likely, what with work being insane right now and all.

Why not start a own WIP thread in the related subforum, by this you can get feedback on your work in a own thread :)

It is ok to re-use models but it would be against the rules to reuse a complete scene (actually the rules are not very specific about that. I will discuss making the rules more specific for the next competition with Soup)

Yes what Fused said sounds good, you can reuse models, as long as its not a complete scene. And it has to fit within the theme, too, of course :)

Well, it doesn't HAVE to fit with the theme, but for a shot at besting my AMAZING render it probably should. :P

Should I upload my image as PNG or as JPEG?

I've found that JPEG @ 100% quality is usually a lot smaller than PNG's.. and there is no noticeable difference in quality. Even a JPEG @ 70 or 80% quality still looks damn good, but can be as little as 30 or 20% the size of an equivalent PNG.

The one exception is black and white images or images with very few colors/tones. The way PNG files are saved allow them to handle images with few colors a lot better than JPEGs, so they end up being about half the size of an equivalent JPEG.
