[Rendering Eggs 2019] Test your egg renders here!
This is the test rendering thread for this year's egg design contest !

If you want help with having your designs converted into rendered eggies, you will need to post your designs to this thread and have them named and saved in a standard naming scheme for your file. This makes the process quicker and easier.

Please use the following naming scheme:
Yourname -Eggname # _skin.png


Note that your design needs to be sized as 256 x 256 pixels and saved in the PNG format
. Any other format will not be rendered.

-Change Yourname to your forum or character name.
-Replace Eggname with a short design name for your egg
-# being the copy/version number. ie. 01, 02, 03, etc.
-You don't have to do anything to _skin.png
-After rendering we can easily remove the _skin indicator and save it as Yourname-Eggname#.png

An example is:
Faeree-EggPattern01 _skin.png


Please note, we will not be rendering any skin that is not saved in this naming format. That means you will need to use an image sharing website that will NOT change your file name.


Where should you save your test image?
We highly recommend using PostImage.org or CloudApp.
Postimage.org (or Postimg.org they are both the same) AND CloupApp (which has a free option of saving 10 files per day) do not change the naming, they do not have ads and the direct link actually is a direct link! Please use one of these websites for providing us your designs that you want rendered. Also, if you know of another image sharing website that doesn't alter the file names please share!


The trouble with ....
TinyPic and Imgur:
Please DO NOT use TinyPic or Imgur as that application generates a random code instead of maintaining the file name. This makes rendering MUCH more difficult and as such we will not be rendering files saved on these websites.

Photobucket:
Please do not use Photobucket for your test renders. Photobucket does not provide an easy way to save your image. Even when you- as entrants- provide a 'direct link' it still takes us to the photobucket html page. So to save a photobucket image, rather than right clicking on image and saving your image file, with photobucket we have to right click and select view image. This then takes us to the photobucket website page. Once on that page we have to 'select the enlarge/magnifying glass icon' which then opens the file page (as no right clicking is allowed), then we have to 'right click view image' via that page to open the image so we can then 'right click save image' in order to actually save the image file in order to actually render it for ye. And that's assuming that Photobucket is actually working (which lately its been down a LOT). So, if ye still must use photobucket, please make sure of the following:
Is Photobucket renaming yer files?
Try changing: User Settings > Privacy > deselect File Name Scrambling (Thanks for the tip Dexla!)
Is photobucket not letting us save the image?
Please be sure and use the direct link, not the html link. You may have to hunt for the actual link! Thank ye!

So for these reasons, we have found that we really do require you to save your design images to Postimage.org or another application that maintains the file name. Thank ye so much. AND if you know of a new application that doesn't alter your file name or size please share and I'll update this post! Thank ye!!!

Feedback on rendered designs belongs in this thread, but any discussion or questions about the event itself might be better in the main event thread :D

Re: [Rendering Eggs 2019] Want to Help Test Renders?
I am posting this thread a bit early as I'm trying to get organized for this year's eggies and my availability may be a bit more limited than previous years. I am usually available during the day CST. Greylady should be available as well- but her hours always vary :)

Hopefully there will be some other lovely rendering volunteers available to help out with transforming the flat designs into rendered egg shapes. Thank you very much in advance if you can help!

Do you want to help your fellow pirates with renders? You can!

One of the biggest challenges with rendering eggs is having and then using the software needed. In order to render an egg please review these tutorials to help you render eggies! Software needed is 3DS Studio Max. You will also need Photoshop or other drawing program that offers transparent background and layer features (Gimp is another alternative).
3D Max 2018 with Photoshop Tutorial
2010 Studio Max with Gimp Tutorial

Once you have successfully learned to render eggs using the programs listed above you are more than welcome to start rendering for our lovely pirates!

If you would like to help render in this thread, please do the following:
1) post that you are rendering, then you can always update your post with the rendered egg(s). That way renderers will know not to render and it will also help waiting pirates know to add a new post with any additional renders they may need done (rather than updating an existing post).

2) Keep the naming scheme. Pirates tend to do multiple designs of the same skin, sometimes in the same render request post, so keeping the name intact with the skin name and number helps the pirates know which egg is which skin version.

If you have any questions please PM me and I'll help answer any questions you may have :)

I'll start this year's renders off with one I'm working on - a sea otter. Just working on the basic outline right now. Will add colors later.

Bisca, your first 2 images are only 180x180 - they must be 256x256. Please resubmit.

Re: [Rendering Eggs 2019] Test your egg renders here!
Woahh that spiderweb egg is all freaky now. Did you move it more to the right or did I use a wrong design?

Sorry about the first one! Let me change that..

Also, can you render this one?

Nope, I just rendered it, didn't change anything about the position.

*sighs* I should really take some lessons in drawing, or egg designing.
It's never going the way I want it to..

Re: [Rendering Eggs 2019] Test your egg renders here!


Oh Bisca! I started working on a spider egg before i saw that you had already done one...well mine is a bit rough just to see how it renders.

Thanks in advance for rendering, Greylady!

(and can we re-enter non-winning entries from last year?)

Etrigan your images are saved as 180 x 180 pixels. Make sure when saving your file via post image that you select 'Do not resize my image' option. I will render with this size but you may want to repost to make sure the render is accurate.
