View Full Version : Another Christmas picture

12-19-2006, 12:18 PM
This was one of my earliest LW images - done with LW7.5 just over 2 years ago.

It's a variation on my company's logo (which is 4 shapes from a circle to a square), and we have a large version on our office wall (A1 size) - I've got my own copy at this size too.

I lost the image, but found it a couple of days ago (along with the .LWS/.LWO files).

Took 31 hours to render @ 3200x2400 on my 2GHz Dell Laptop, and was before I knew about subdivsion patches :) Could've done with some more passes (it's got 17), and a better "floor" texture.

I was tempted to put this in "Work in progress", but it's not going to progress, so it's therefore finished :)

How did you do the snow?

The falling snow (given that the ground snow isn't worth talking about!)? Hypervoxels - in fact, I don't think I even got as far as changing any of the defaults! It just looked right.

I'll have to dig out the parameters if you want them (transfer them over to the "new" [=2 years old] rendering machine).
