    Willow. Buffy. Pulling funny faces. A round window with a black cat. What more could a man wish for on his desktop?

    how many light sources? how long did it take to render (on what machine/software)?

    radiosity is great, its just such a killer in render time.

    it has 4 light sources, one above each sphere , it takes about 11 min to render in my TiBook 667 512Mb RAM with Cinema 4D, even its not at full radiosity accuracy level ( its on 20% of accuracy) u can get a nice result, thats one of the best features in Cinema, its render engine calculate Radiosity quite fast (Maxon says they have the fastest radiosity engine) :cool:

    I wouldn't be able to get that speed from Lightwave - and the settings are different - and quite a pain really. You need to play around a bit to get the image to look good sometimes, which only means you waste a lot of time waiting for the test renders to finish. But you can store the radiosity settings if you do an animation - so it only renders once at full radiosity, banking the images as a UV map for they whole scene, and then its just raytracing for the other frames - only really works well if your lightsources aren't moving.

    Hey, B2TM, I see you got my PM! :D

    I got a new desktop theme going. I also posted the same desktop, basically, in the alien thread. See if you can find out where I got it from.

    P.S.: I’m using my old iMac and OS 9 right now. At least it ain't windoze. :rolleyes:

    >(B2TM)Is that new one from bladerunner?

    Nope. It's not bladerunner

    If you really want to cheat, follow page 22 of the alien thread, but don't read too far after that...as the thread gets a bit wierd. :eek: :p

    But don't cheat and post the answer here. Keep it to yourself. :rolleyes:

    Tiauguinho, very original. :p

    a bit wierd? I checked the page and your explanation is less than helpful. I'd like to see a better image to see how it was created - drawn, computer, openGL from a game.

    duke, I can't seem to get a better image, since I can't just use the command-shift-3 for taking the image, and compying the image to Appleworks causes loss of quality.

    I got this from a 3 or 4 minute video.

    And if my explanation wasn't helpful, then you clearly have no idea how to check my explanation. I made it pretty clear.

    >(duke)you need photoshop! but you could use iPhoto as well....

    I'm using OS 9, as I said, so iPhoto will not work. Plus, even if the image was edited with Photoshop (which it was) it really wouldn't make much difference. The only way I could save the picture from the video was from copying the image from Quicktime to an Appleworks document.

    >what was the video?
    I have no idea what you're talkin'bout, muhahahahaha. :rolleyes:

    >(KC) I got a new desktop theme going. I also posted the same desktop, basically, in the alien thread. See if you can find out where I got it from.

    Another hint: This came from an enhanced CD, one of the newer ones.

    I have too many things to do than search for images and crap on the forums and play guessing games, if you don't want to tell us, fine, be immature - it was a simple request.

    :rolleyes:
