EGGS! 2015 Test Rendering Thread 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 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

P.S. If you use photobucket, and your files are being renamed...
Try changing: User Settings > Privacy > deselect File Name Scrambling (Thanks for the tip Dexla!)


Also, if using Photobucket, please be sure and use the direct link , not the html link. Thank ye!


Note: If possible, please DO NOT use TinyPic as that application generates a random code instead of maintaining the file name. This makes rendering MUCH more difficult. Please use Photobucket or other application that maintains the file name. Thank ye so much.

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

Hi Greylady :) :)
I've decided to attempt making an egg again, despite the trickiness of the whole ordeal.

Would you mind showing me how this looks? I'm going for a kraken egg effect.

I tried to download the program myself, but it kept giving me errors.
So if you could render these it'd be great. :D

@Etrigan - could you please rename your entries? It really helps those of us who render for you. Thanks mate. I'll be happy to render them once they've been renamed. :)

@Bookling - sorry, but still having problems. When downloading your image from Photobucket, it appears you have selected "HTML embed". What you need to select is "Direct" link. I am not able to save the image to my desktop with the HTML setting unless I do "view image" which takes me to your Photobucket account, then download to my computer. I'd appreciate it if you could redo your images. Thanks!

@ both - I went ahead and did the renders this time, but please try to correct future submissions. Thanks.

I used TinyPic and there is no option to rename pictures. It just gives you what it gives you.

Any chance of using Photobucket? It's not a huge issue now, but as more requests for renders come in, it becomes more difficult if the naming standards are not followed.

@everyone - please read the first post for instructions for naming/posting your entries. So far everyone is having issues.

@Carrd - are you using TinyPic? Would it be possible to used Photobucket? Please review the first post.
@Carrd - I was not able to render your Cheese1 entry as it was saved as a .jpg. It must be saved as a .png. Please redo and I'll be happy to render it.

@Firstround - looks like you chose the "HTML" link - for future entries, you need to choose the "Direct" link in Photobucket.

Thanks for rendering those!

FWIW, I did try hard to read the directions, and I triple-checked my post before I posted it. I know that I did copy the link directly from the "direct link":
http://i514.photobucket.com/albums/t346/JameshOfEmerald/Jamesh-ZigZag01_skin.png

The HTML link was:
<a href="http://s514.photobucket.com/user/JameshOfEmerald/media/Jamesh-ZigZag01_skin.png.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i514.photobucket.com/albums/t346/JameshOfEmerald/Jamesh-ZigZag01_skin.png" border="0" alt=" photo Jamesh-ZigZag01_skin.png"/></a>. (Notice the internal part of the HTML link is the same as the direct link).

For completeness sake, the other links are "Email & IM":
http://s514.photobucket.com/user/JameshOfEmerald/media/Jamesh-ZigZag01_skin.png.html

And "IMG":
[URL=http://s514.photobucket.com/user/JameshOfEmerald/media/Jamesh-ZigZag01_skin.png.html][IMG]http://i514.photobucket.com/albums/t346/JameshOfEmerald/Jamesh-ZigZag01_skin.png[/IMG][/URL]

It seems as though the only .png image represented in any of the four default links is the same one. Right-clicking on the image and selecting "Copy Image URL" doesn't help; It gives:
http://i514.photobucket.com/albums/t346/JameshOfEmerald/Jamesh-ZigZag01_skin.png

I'm sorry if I caused you problems, and I don't want you to think I'm attacking you - I'm really grateful you're doing this service for us! The information dump was more of an attempt to find something that does help make your life easier, not an attempt to attack/justify.

Hi sorry about that, did I link it right this time?

Edit: Hmm looking at the other posts I don't know if this is gonna be right but I did make sure to click on the direct link this time. Is there an example we could see how the link is supposed to look?

Thanks LovelyLady <3

Thanks so much Jamesh! I'll have to look into this further as everyone is having issues (still - sorry Firstround!). Maybe there's been a change with Photobucket?? Anyway, I'll let everyone know what I figure out. In the meantime, I'll muddle through somehow. :)

Okay, gonna test one...



Wow, this is really bazaar! So, when I first tried right click/save image as I had the same problems as I had with yours. I double-checked that I was doing everything "as usual". Then, for giggles, I went back and tried again, and guess what? Now EVERYTHING works, even the images above that did not work and hour ago!

So, I guess we'll just deal with the hand we're dealt. Keep 'em coming, and I'll try my best to whip ye up some huevos! :)

May I ask you which tool you use to render them that perfectly :)?

I'm glad you figured out whatever issue you were having. :) You deserve extra kudos for this.
