[Rendering Eggs 2018] 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

It's been a long long time since I've tried to make eggs, so I hope I got the naming right!

@Filthyjake - please rename your egg images per the following format (as noted in the first post of this thread). Thank ye!

 
Yourname -Eggname # _skin.png


So, for example, you should name it like:
Filthyjake-Chick_01.png

I'll be happy to render these once the file names have been changed. ;)

@ Filthyjake & everyone - Please do NOT edit your render to add additional flats! I work my way down the queue, and may be in the process of rendering while you are editing, and I will not see the edits as I do not look up, but only work forward from the last render.

@ Filthyjake - you need to repair your file names as noted in the first post and in my reply to you above.

Thank you. :)

@Filthyjake - sorry mate, I messed up on the example of file naming I gave you. It should have been like this:

Filthyjake-chick01_skin.png
Filthyjake-lost-ship01_skin.png
Filthyjake-demented-rabit01_skin.png

Give me a few minutes and I'll go ahead and render these for you this time, but please try and follow the examples above in the future. Thank ye!

Yes, much better. However, the number (01, 02, 03, 04) is to help you (and me) identify changes to your submission. For example, the first time you submit an image, it might be named Filthyjake-newimage01_skin.png. Once rendered, you might want to make some changes and resubmit it (in a new post). This time it would be named Filthyjake-newimage02_skin.png. That way you know which version you are working on. Also, this allows you to submit multiple versions of the same image and know which one became which egg.

Hope this helps.

Is there a process that would allow me to test them my self? I appreciate that it is probably a fair amount of work which is greatly appreciated because this is fun.

Yes. Please read thru the main event post under Tutorials! Also, our dear Faeree is in the process of updating her 3ds Max Tutorial to reflect the new 2018 version. It should be up later today.

 
First time trying, hope this is the right format


Almost! You mainly need to add "_skin" to the end of the file name. So in your case "Ozzy-Cloudy-Night-01_skin" would be perfect. Thanks for asking!

....currently rendering your entries mates!
