Interpreting A Tutorial [Blender]

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, In : Learning 
Hey all!

Yay, third video of 2019!! GOD is so good!

Here it is:
GOD is so good!!!

The aim of this video is really to get you into the frame of mind to learn what it takes to take any tutorial that might prove useful to you and use it in any engine in Blender (to some extent obviously). Since all engines are not the same, results will vary between engines, but you can still get a lot of value out of old tutorials while you switch to 2.8! It'll get you over that educational learning curve and not o...

Tutorial for the node groups

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, October 27, 2018, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

Recently I got to share some seriously awesome node groups with you guys and today I get to share a tutorial about how some of them work (based on how a few works, you'll get how I was led to build them and be able to use them easily).


GOD is so amazing!! (^^,)

Because I know a lot of you are new to nodes, I would like to make a short FAQ here about what they are and why they are what they are. There was a time in my life when I opened the node editor and promptly closed it, hahaha, so ...

Brass

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, May 12, 2016, In : General 
Hey all!


Brass

Last week I looked at a brass material for a project I'm working on, and through the references I got, I could not tell the difference between brass and gold, except by context! I must not know them very well, but I was really surprised. I even ask some other people if they could and still they were as perplexed as I was.

What I did find out is that brass is sometimes a more pale yellow than gold is. Gold can often be an almost orange-y color. Not completely, but you get the point...

Anime style dust cloud

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, April 20, 2016, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!



In some anime shows, there is a dust cloud that follows some explosions that looks a lot like this. I've wanted to do it for a while, but only got the release to give it a shot last night, after downloading Animation Nodes. I don't know 100% how Animation Nodes work, but I have to say, that it does take some getting used to and there is definitely a need for tutorials, hahaha. Having said that, you don't need animation nodes for this tutorial, though they do make things a lot easier!

ZTransparency Edge fix

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, February 3, 2016, In : Tips 
Hey all!

A while ago, I posted an article about the edge that ZTransparency (in Blender Render) creates around solid faces in front of it and sometimes possibly even behind it. Just as a reminder, here is the image:


That white line is the background - it's not supposed to be there.

When you are doing a render that does not have many faces in front of ZTransparency planes, this is not an issue at all, but when you're talking trees or even city scapes, you have a serious issue on your hands.

Speed up renders in Blender

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, February 1, 2016, In : Tips 
Hey all!

Last week, I briefly talked about this topic as part of the latest update on the Esther 6 project - which you can read here. The reason for this post is to particularly focus on this topic and share some engine specific tricks that GOD showed me through personal leading and from a few articles, so let's get into it.

This will be mostly focused on Blender Render, as that is my engine of choice for the time, but I will talk about Cycles Render as well in another post - GOD willing.

Underwater Compositing - Softness

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, February 9, 2015, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!!

Today we cover the last in the series on underwater compositing! There may still come future posts on certain features that still apply, but as far as compositing goes for a basic underwater scene, we're ending today :D.

As you've seen, we're covering softness today. While this is not always required, there is a certain presence to water that to most often presents itself as a softness. You'll find it even out of water in very humid conditions, but really makes most underwater scenes ...

Underwater compositing - Mist

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, January 28, 2015, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

Been a while since the last post, but this one is something I've learned a little bit on, so I hope this helps you tons! :D

Something that can easily be missed when it comes to underwater compositing is mist or a cloudiness. This comes from the way light bounces in the water, as well as other particles in the waters. Just think of a misty day. You can only see so far. Depending on the kind of water you are in, you will have varying decrees of clarity.

BUT! This is not a white mist. Ther...

A take on toon shading_Compositing

When I saw I hadn't shared this yet, I was really surprised. Must be because I'm so tired, hahaha. No worries, here we go:

When GOD gave me the idea for this image, I really felt fear creep onto me that it would not look good and oh snap! I am very happy with this one's result.

Toon Shading_an improvement

Hey there everyone!

Firstly, I want to say thanx to the people from the Blender Facebook group here and more precisely, here.

I found out a lot about toon shading here, though it did not produce what I wanted - it did however bring me a heck of a lot closer, haha. I would never have thought of using full oversampling nor about turn the auto ray bias off, so huge thanx there!

Though these methods are great, there are issues here. If you leave on the auto ray bias, you get this (see the collar are...

Old renders are ready-to-use material

Hey all!

Feels like forever since the last post, but it seems that I'm only going to be able to do weekly posts for a while. Long story, but, for today, I would like to share a secret with you. A very very big one that the lecturers go on about when you study design.

That secret is: The more work you finish, the more work you have to fall back on for later projects; a library of free material if you will.

For example, you all know I've done a series of images based on the 4 seasons by Vivaldi. N...

A little progress report

Hey everyone!!

Today I get to share a little progress shot from something I'm currently working on:


Currently, this looks more like a caustics study, but actually the scene as it sits is exactly that! It's part of prep work. The ocean floor is right (in terms of distance and possibly color) and so is a lot of the compositing. It has an old-style photo feel that I am really really liking so far.

Now, when I post something, I want it to benefit you, so I want to give you some sort of help. Today, ...

Lamps in BGE

Hey all!

Today we talk about lamps in BGE. Now, for all intensive purposes, this does cover some functions of lamps, but this is about what you can accomplish with lamps in BGE.

Now, you will find that I've already done a post on making sure that you don't lose your shadow in game and this you can find here.

In games, you see the following on lamps:

UV solution

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, January 10, 2014, In : Tips 
Hey all!

Recently I was working on a tile example and I found something weird (this is in Cycles). I'm very used to Blender unwrapping well and having no problems with it's unwrapping, but there is one:

When your shape is too simple, with originally too few coordinates,
your unwrapping will not stretch or distort your textures along the unwrapping.


What I did find, very thankfully from above, is that if you subdivide it a bit, at least once, Blender has more points of reference and your UV will n...

Paper and art

Hey there everyone!

Today's post is one kind I have not been able to do for a while! So very excited!

Yesterday, a friend and I was talking about doing crumpled paper. Now, I was thinking he was talking about those balls of paper you make when you try to form an idea, then you don't like it, so you tear it off, crumple it and put it aside. But, he meant like paper that was crumpled then folded open again. Haha, anyway, so I said I would try it (before the misunderstanding was cleared up) and th...

Default project?_huh

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, October 18, 2013, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

Today I bring you a QBT that I find incredibly useful and yet it works for you, passively; the default project in Blender.

When you open Blender, it opens with "factory" settings, which is usually a camera, cube and a light with either Cycles Render or Blender Render as the default engine. Also, most of the Add-ons are turned off, so your functionality is a lot less varied.

Here's where it becomes helpful; you can change this default project.

It is very simple and here's how:

Hey all!

Writing these tips take a whole lot longer than I thought they would, hahaha. Today's is a quick one, but wow, can it boost a render!

Many times, we have a render that just does not cooperate. Though it looks cool, it still ends up being a bit too dark, like this one:



In these instances, we need a level boost of Brightness and Contrast, but there is a node for Hue Saturation and Value. Value is a great level booster of the Brightness and Contrast. You can find it under the Color categor...

A strange corner shadow phenomenon I've never really seen much of in real life on the intensity that Blender can produce, though it is a fantastic boost, even on a low setting, set on...

Hey everyone!

Comin' at ya with another Quick Blog Tutorial, or QBT :).

I've been sharing a little on the compositor, but this one is part of texturing, so you don't need the node editor to test this one out! Feel free to, but you don't need to.

Here's just a little example that it works (a plane with 5 faces):



I don't know if you knew this or not, but you can have more than one active UV on a single object in Blender Render too. I didn't know it and I'm sure most of you didn't think it impossibl...

Texture baking, basically

That's right! Basic Texture Baking!

Texture baking, what's that?! Simple, in Blender, you have what is known as procedural textures, node textures and a feature called texture painting. These features all have one thing in common; Blender. I can't export a model to another 3D program, unless I bake my textures or make them externally. While texture painting is easil...

Glossy Black

Hey all!

A very much requested material (not requested from me, but definitely requested a lot) is a glossy black. And here is how you can make it in Blender Render as well as Cycles Render.

On Cycles Render, it is the easiest thing! Just add a new material to an object or area you want a glossy black and apply this to it:

Blender Render is a bit more complex, since it is not as physically accurate as Cycles. So, I want you to c...

The difference

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, In : Tips 
Hey peoples!

During a tutorial I found that in some cases, it is actually better (and faster) to use physical detail than it is to use textures.

It works a bit like this:
____________________________________________________
small object------>------>------>------>------>------>---Big object
physical>physical>physical<mix>texture>texture>texture

So when you are doing something like trees or bushes, try physical detail first and see if that works for you.

Here is a mix of physical detail and textures:...

Really jazzed to get this one out today!



The entire list of things has changed a bit, as you can see, but, the main points remain, the most important of which was to get the ruin as the focal point.

The coordinates system is still a bit buggy with the ruin's textures (as you can see the floor's bump-mapping is gone and there are some black bricks), but the rest of the scene I am really jazzed about (though it's still not complete).

What a mission! It was such a task to get this size of ivy in the scene. The generator works extremely well and it has nothing to do with the quality of the software. Blender rocks and the ivy generator too, but I was referring to getting it to render (Cycles is a bit more heavy duty than Blender Render, imo).

BUT! HE came through as usual and I added HIS suggestions to the book as well on how to get it going with a good look and proper detail.

Caustics in Cycles

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, In : General

Well, as simply put as I can:
It's the light pattern you see after light has passed through a transparent medium, such as glass. Great examples are of course the following:
 - Light stripes at the bottom of the pool
 - Rainbow lights when light shines through cut crystal
 - That focus point you can get with a magnifying glass

I've been working very hard to get some form of good result in depth and thankfully here it is:




Now, while the depth is great, it still only goes so far and then it doesn't go any further. In other words, if the object goes beyond a certain point, there is no more depth to give it and to you it will only be getting smaller.

The ideal is to get double the depth I have currently, but doing a two-step overlay (it helps focus a center of the scene), but there are many issues that still nee...

Quick Tip: A cloud texture with a cell noise basis

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, April 17, 2012, In : Tutorials 
This image is a custom colored version of a cloud procedural texture with a cell noise basis. What that means is that the procedural texture is made and written mainly for creating clouds or texturing them, either by deformation of a shape or just using color, or both. The basis is how the texture will be made, or put together. There are many options in Blender regarding basis, but this one is cool for a few reasons.

Blender Render VS Cycles Render
