Fun antics in Poser



  • @erogenesis Wow! Thanks! There is so much to learn, sometimes I think Ill never understand it all. I read so many posts that I'm just lost in because of all the tech jargon, but I want to learn so I can get better. Thanks so much for helping.



  • @Lotharen hehe there is a lot to learn, but that stuff up there is all you need to get started with some cool renders like I do them. Don't overdo it, and take example from reality / photos.



  • @erogenesis Thanks again for so much help. I have run into one road block - I can't find how to set the lights to Inverse Linear or Inverse Square. I looked everywhere, settings, parameters, even the material room - and nothing! I must be missing it somewhere, could you guys give me a GPS waypoint to it? lol

    Also, I have a lot of exterior sets but hardly anything interior and what I do have seems really, small. Have any of you run into this issue? It seems the moment I get my camera past the wall I'm to far in and this particular interior scene didn't have each wall selectable, so I couldn't delete one. Might have to learn how to model some walls and make a stage set or something.



  • @Lotharen those light controls are on the properties tab. the pallet with the dial adjusters for movement and size etc. click on the tab that sais Properties and at the bottom you will see light falloff controls



  • @Lotharen As ghostship says, you can access the light controls here. You can only change the inverse falloff on a spot or point light though.

    Also, regarding your exterior sets and not being able to see through walls, you could also try experimenting with the Hither value of the camera, it adjusts where the clipping of objects in the camera view starts. So if something is closer to the camera than where the hither starts, it won't be visible in camera.
    Here's an example picture. Nothing has changed except the hither value on the camera. As you can see, the higher the value, the further into the scene you can see.

  • Ahh okay, thanks for pointing that out! I was using a infinite light, so that explains why I couldn't find it. So much to learn, I appreciate the assistance guys. :)

    Nice!

    Thanks for that tip!
