Artisitc Merits

Post by Pettytyrant101 on Fri Feb 18, 2011 8:58 pm

This a place to discuss things arty. Art itself, how do make it and pc programs to help.

My personal favourite top free useful programs are;
Terragen2
Blender
Gimp
Infraview
Open Office


Fav pay programs
Terragen2 Full licences
Adobe After Effects
Adobe Premier Pro
Particle Illusion


I know my way reasonably well about most of these except Blender which I am new to, so if anyone needs any help (and I know the answer!) feel free to ask. I'm sure there's a few programs I'm missing from those lists but they will come back to me.

Terragen 2 for planets and asteroids. Alien ship model free object download. Light flares and edging done in Gimp as post work. Nasa for the backdrop!

That is gorgeous, Petty. Very Happy

I'm not very good with art stuff myself, and the only programs you mention that I have are GIMP and Open Office. I mainly use OO for word processing and spreadsheets, though.

Thanks Eldo- but the beauty of PC art is it looks better than the work required to produce it! Although it can be a bit time consuming sometimes- that was about 3 hours to set up and about 10 to render.

To be honest Eldo I was struggling to think of a time I'd used OO for anything arty- but its such a good free program in the face of Microsoft Words domination I thought I'd include it just to give it a plug. I couldn't go back to Word, I've been using OO for years now.

Blender's excellent, but extremely hard to learn at the start I found. Spend a few weeks here and there using it, following some step by step tutorials, and now I could probably create something on my own. Not anything good mind you! Smile Might have forgotten all I learnt by now though, been using Dreamweaver a lot for school, along side Adobe Flash & After Effects! Oh the joys of being an IT/Media student! Very Happy

It does look amazing, I agree!

Adobe premier and After Effects are great I did my LotR edits with those. Very easy to quickly manipulate video with filters and lighting etc- only down side is it outputs raw data so dvd quality sound and vision is about a gig of space for every 10 mins you output!

Seems a good place to stick this. The Anduin pic animated, a bit, was more of a test really to see how long it would take my new pc to do.

Not sure about this- can't decide if it works or just looks a mess. So I thought I would court some comments. Sorry its so big, its the original render size.

Made a short video to demonstrate for Mrs Figgs how to use the clone brush to remove things from photos.
Its a bit glitchy, recording troubles, but you can see whats going on still.
I'm using gimp for this, but its exactly the same in photoshop. Even the clone tool symbol is the same.

I looked and looked (and yes, your work is excellent as usual, Petty) but I couldn't find my video amongst them... Shocked Was I looking in the wrong spot? Suspect

These earn me money! So may be a little further up the immdeiate priority list! But slow as progress may be your video is still ongoing at regular intervals I promise. (it takes about 3 days to render out less than a minute of the animation for your video- now if you want to buy me a bank of processors and fund a render farm for me I'd be delighted and will have it finished in no time- please do!)

It's not got that serious that you want me to offer financial assistance? Shocked Quite outrageous! Shocked Can't be true, surely! Shocked I feel that I'm doing you the favour! Shocked I could be wrong about that, of course. Suspect I was wrong about something once... until I realized I was mistaken - boom boom. Very Happy

I never joke about asking for money! But surely you dont expect me to open my sporran to fund quicker progress on your video? Shocked
And I'm afraid if a fully funded render farm is not to be forthcoming then you will just have to wait!

Open your sporran? How on earth, having known you this long, could I have even formed that thought? Shrugging Actually, I'm amazed you did! Shocked And if you're suggesting I can send you this 'render farm' thingee... Crying or Very sad Well, I FULLY intend to wait for every bit as long as you do, laddie - but not a second more!

Oh petty I LOVE your photos, I am afraid all those programs I have never heard of having only done rendering with poster paints and a brush haha! I really like Anduin and the flowery garden, I really wish you would do Lothlorien, you know the bit where Arwen is buried, cant remember the name, anyway the centre of Lothlorien where time seems strange and there are huge mallorns, that would be wonderful to see. Very Happy
