Nope, they are flat...
I guess for architectural renders, the lake of ss shouldn't matter that much.

just wanted to move this post up a bit as I didn't want it to get lost on the previous page as it's of so much benefit to everyone

@drBouvierLeduc: How did you set the materials? After I imported the result from ivy as an .obj to blender there are a few materials preset but they don't have any properties set. They don't have any colour or changed ref or so...

And if that would be the case they would only be in blender and not in blendigo. :(

Well I saw in the lovely fellah's site the list and saw VMware, so here is a real free OS virtualization package that works almost as good as VMware, looks promising.

I don't get it, in blendigo, you always have to set up the materials manually right ?
Once you imported the *.obj in blender, you've got three different meshes : the trunc, the adult and young leaves. They are already uv mapped, all you've got to do is to create a b&w alpha map for the leaves, and save all the textures as *.jpg files.
After, set up the material the usual way in blendigo.
If this is not clear I can send you the *.blend file.

Oh, I didn't kow they were already textured with .JPGs thx for the tip.

I will try this tonight. If I'm not succesful I will come back to your offer of the blend. Thx for the help.

Yes, you alway have to set the materials in blendigo manually. Hope sometime blendigo can get the rough settings at least from the blender materials.

Great GPL Screenshot utility (open source)

Nice list on the site! I would suggest you separate opensource from freeware. Most of the softwares I have suggested are open source. Occasionally, freeware has its place (like indigo!) but I would be annoyed to find non-open source software in a list of mostly OSS items.

Koba, do you think you could look at my list, here and email which are open source and which are freeware? Then I'll update the list. Cheers.

Well, I've done my best to categorize them into different licenses. Go to my website and check out the cool free progs link and let me know if there are any that are wrong. I'll add all the new ones from here in to the right place whenever they're posted.
