really good looking meadow, but the grasstraws still look spiky and straight, maybe you could bend them just a little. and also the white of the daisies could be a little brighter.

Delight us with a wireframe please!!!!
Yes indeed all Skethup... I don't have the first clue how to use any other modeling software. I made a 2m x 2m grass patch and then made myself an .obj to use as external reference, just randomly rotating the 2m squares. I made the hede in a similar fahion, I think it's a sample about 4m long by 1.5m high. Slight edit tho :oops: the daisy and dandelion are altered models from 3d warehouse.

It's probably the low res (I hope) but there isn't actually a straight blade of grass in the whole scene! they're all bent, some quite a lot. I've shown a closer pic... The daisy petals were diffuse transmitter in that scene, i've changed them to simple diffuse, and I think they look better.

Matching 3D renders to photographs isn't exactly my specialty... This is my first attempt in over a year actually - I choose this photo I took because it was nice and overcast and had a simple angle :)

Don't we all wish we had one of these?
I do realize that is a tad large for a Velociraptor, but my above comment still applies ^^;

The HDR seems weak - there are no highlights on the raptor, and the shadow is barely visible. Other than that, it's nicely integrated. :)

Ah, I didn't use an HDR for this - just a Sun Light... The shadows were added in later myself because I couldn't get the shadow catching to work even though there was a plane object beneath him D=

I've never tried compositing 3D into photos with Indigo before - I've only ever done it in native Cinema 4D ^^;

Tried and failed for hours last night to get some pretty dispersion effects, with varying levels of success.

Also tried some volumetric caustics based on what I had been reading in the forums, but I couldn't even get so much as a light to show up, let alone the crazy bouncing shafts of light and other pretty effects *shrugs* (I have scene scale set to 0.01 and am modeling things at the default scale in C4D)

First picture is something I did with Indigo RT over a year ago, and the second and third were my attempts last night. I have yet to get anything remotely close to the first image =/

http://www.indigorenderer.com/forum/vie ... f=3&t=1708 Is what I was using as a base for my prsim material last night - the first was a all-settings-default specular material.

I suppose if I let the top-down one render longer it might have gotten better, but the dispersion on the floor seems very weak...

My only success at dispersion thus far.

Have you tried using BiDir MLT?

That's what I was using for the top two images, I can't remember what I was using for the third one since it was so old.

Thanks! I made an update with volume light. I composited the two images because the glass disapears with the fog material
