[Rendering Eggs 2017] Test your egg renders here! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

This is the test rendering thread for this year's egg design contest!

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!

If you want help with having your designs converted into rendered eggies, you need to use a standard naming scheme for your file. This makes the process quicker and easier. Please use the following scheme:

Yourname -Eggname # _skin.png

-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

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 don't have ads and the direct link actually is a direct link! If possible, 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 ....
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!

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.

So for these reasons, please use 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

Cannot Render!

Bisca, photobutcket is doing the sending to HTML issue again. Please resubmit using one of the suggested image websites. Thanks. (To see it in action, select 'view image' then look at the URL. You will see it changes it to HTML and forces us to find a way to save image via their means which can be challenging).

Here's the error message if I save image as normal (right click- save img):

That is because the image gets changed by Photobucket to HTML format whenever anyone clicks/views that image. Its a way to help protect images however for our purposes, its not well suited.

Thanks again!

*mutters* stupid websites always annoying. First one changed the name of the file, now I find one that worked and it does this stupid stuff again. Bleh. I'll grab one of the suggested ones.

Hi Bisca,

Sorry to tell you this, but it looks like you didn't check (on Postimg) original size as it resized your images to 180x180 :( BUT the naming worked! <3

Edit: I rendered them but I have no idea if the positions are correct since the size of your images were smaller.. but at least you can see them! :)

(for the eggy one can you please put the # before the word 'skin'? Thank ye!)
