Re: old scanline renderers color issues

Probably the gamma that is different, some default setting somewhere? I "wrestle" with gamma everyday since I mostly work in linear space, but sometimes at gamma 2,2 and 1,8. Especially when applying standard texturemaps comming from photoshop or the likes (which usually have an applied ga...

I would say if that's not photorealistic it's as darn close as you can get and still not be... :shock: Thanks (I guess :lol: ) That dropplet going down the can looks very weird now when looking at it, like it has a completely different shader than the dropplets. I wonder why since it should have th...

Re: Octane/2 blueprints/drawings

looks ace :D especially the water drops are great. i almost don't dare to say that there's one tiny detail that looks not as perfect as the rest which is the foot. unlike the very top that looks a bit to smooth and blue for my taste for being the usual can metal Thanks a lot :) Regarding the foot, ...

Re: Octane/2 blueprints/drawings

Not been able to play with the octane 3d modell today, but thought I could post some of my work I did today. This isn't for a client, but I needed to flesh out my material/shaders library a little bit (and test some light setup ideas I had in my mind), so I built some shaders in Modo today and used ...

Yeah, I am hoping to be able to convert it to ordinary polygons in the future and in a common fileformat for anyone to play with!

Re: Octane/2 blueprints/drawings

Unfortunately, I haven't had much time to do anything on my Octane 3D build. Was planning to use the hollidays for some 3D fun, but as luck would have it I catched the cold of the century, so have been too sick to do any fun stuff :( But I managed to get some hours to play today, so here is a small ...

Re: Octane/2 blueprints/drawings

Ok, the base done. Was thinking about building the internal stuff too, but since this is only for viewing/rendering purpose, i take the easy road. Modo is not a CAD program after all. :lol: There is a small surface detail left to do, that shall match the line in the front plastic cover, but I do tha...

Re: Octane/2 blueprints/drawings

attached package contains the iv files converted to obj and sidefx format Absolutely fantastic! Thanks a lot for this! Turned out the case part of the wrl files wouldn't convert over properly either. Only thing I know of that will convert SGI inventor files reliably is a program called Polytrans fr...

Re: Octane/2 blueprints/drawings

Well, actually these are shots of Inventor models, I don't remember clearly if WRML models are as good. Ah, that might be it. But at least the WRML files will have that as a reference, and you would asume the inventor models to be pretty exact regarding relative measurments. Once again, thanks a lo...

Re: Octane/2 blueprints/drawings

This is how these "crappy" models look like. You can download them directly from my Octane while it's running or i will upload them to dropbox later: http://5.19.246.101/~nongrato/Public/livoct.tar.gz image1.jpg Wow, A bit lowpoly of course, but no where near as I remembered them and a wh...

Re: Octane/2 blueprints/drawings

if memory serves there are some 3d format converters installed in irix by default. i think they have their own category in the toolchest even. i recall inventor support as being part of that. but if that included conversion-from capability is an entirely different question. also if you have a versi...

Supernice! Let's hope I can use it this time so you haven't had to go through all this in vain.

Really appreciate it ,thx :)

I also found some models in .wrl.gz format. Maybe someone can suggest a converter.


Might have better luck with .wrl though!

Re: Octane/2 blueprints/drawings

The models are quite detailed - it won't be easy to surpass them. I've uploaded them on dropbox in case someone else needs them: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jok3rzf0dyc1xfq/shuttle.tar.gz?dl=0 These are Inventor models, not wrml. Thanks a lot, unfortunately I can't import/use .iv files, none of my pr...
