EGGS! 2012 Test Rendering Thread

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 rendering designs, 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

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 main event thread :D

Re: EGGS! 2012 Test Rendering Thread

Oh lol, that's how they are made. I was wondering about that :)
So what size should the original design be?

Re: EGGS! 2012 Test Rendering Thread

Everyone, please use the prescribed naming scheme for your flat eggs. It really helps the renderers!

Your files should be named like this:
Yourname-Eggname#_skin.png

Thank you.

And here are the first batch of eggies! :)

Re: EGGS! 2012 Test Rendering Thread

Thanks so much Squishat! :)

Here's are alternate tries at the gator - tried to make the eyes look popped up a bit.

(older one)

Any opinions on which one looks better??

Re: EGGS! 2012 Test Rendering Thread

Hello guys!

OK to be honest this is my first time participating at such event , and i was hesitant at first but i thought i would give it a try!

If you guys could comment on my picture it would be awesome to know what you guys think and how i could improve! The heart shape was drawn by hand then scanned and colored on my comp and had some effects added to it :)

Can't wait to see how it looks like rendered!




I have this shape with a different effect and another color gonna add it soon and when i see your guys input on it and how it looks i might do other designs , thanks in advance!!

Grey I think the left-hand of the new ones is the best. I too would buy both of yours! So cute.

I love this time of year! I always look forward to buying eggs.

Re: EGGS! 2012 Test Rendering Thread

@Amyrosee - I went ahead and changed your file type for you this time, but for future submissions you will need to save your file as .png rather than .jpeg or we will not be able to render them. Thanks for understanding. :) Here's your eggie:

Re: EGGS! 2012 Test Rendering Thread

I would love to help rendering. But I don't have 3dstudio :(
I'm looking for some converter to convert the 3ds mesh into a povray or moray file. I anyone would happen to have this lying around somewhere :D would really appreciate it.

If I do find a converter I will post the converted file here, just in case more people would like to render their eggs.

Re: EGGS! 2012 Test Rendering Thread

Yeah, the nerve of my boss to be giving me stuff to do... like I HAVE stuff to do.. eggs! Go away boss-man.

This is an experiment. Curious to know what the distortion will do to it.

Thanks in advanced!


Getting closer to done with these two--- thanks so much for your help!

Re: EGGS! 2012 Test Rendering Thread

Have I gone bonkers? Are my skins way huge? I need to check my resolutions. Hope they weren't driving anyone nuts. Sorry!

*edit ... well yes. Apparently I thought it said 356, and not 256. Although Greylady can probably sympathize with me I'm sure and will agree, bigger is much nicer on ...ahem... "mature" eyes

Re: EGGS! 2012 Test Rendering Thread

Well just incase anyone is interested in testing their own egg designs.
I found and tweaked a povray scene that you can download here.
I tested it with this design.

Which results in this egg


So if you want to try your own, install povray. Open the eggy.pov scene, make sure to place the design in the same location as the .pov file. And all you need to do is click render.
To try your own design just replace my file by your own file that has the same name. Or tweak the .pov file
#declare Egg_Tex = texture{ pigment{ image_map { png "eggdesign1.png" map_type 1 }} finish { phong 0.1}}

By replacing
png "eggdesign1.png"
by
gif "myowndesign.gif"
