Re: The Disintegration Machine

I cannot see the image very well on my iPad (an older one) but from the SU version I saw on the SketchUcation site, I know the details are very good. I suggest you watch Fletch's Post Processing tutorial. It is very good and I think it will give you some good ideas for controlling the lighting. :gj:...

Re: Beach Sunset

The lighting looks better to me. I also think the shadows are better. I do miss the umbrella though. : ;)

Re: I would have just rendered a cube. Catmull had another idea.

Thanks for sharing this Fletch. In some ways things have not really advanced all that much and again in some ways it has advanced a lot. Biggest gain has been the amount of a software available and how easy it is (at least some of it :D ). Tools like Twilight have added some great capabilities as we...

Re: Laghidze lemonades

Very interesting. I think this is the best one of the images you have posted. :gj:

BTW: Some interesting info about lemonade. :whoot:

Re: How to use the Alpha Mask / Alpha Channel

After some "re-learning" of Xara Photo & Graphic Designer (been almost 2 years since I used it) I have posted an updated version of my render in this tread.

I welcome your feedback. Yes, I know there is an issue with the shadows. I applied them in Xara rather than in SketchUp.
