Wow, that's quite something!

wow, nice test...TG is really an awesome app. Now if we only didn't have to disable ray trace to get displace the world would be a better place eh?

Hannes could you please show a wireframe shot of the chainmail model
you used to generate the heightmap(depthgrab),if you don't mind,that is?
Just curious. ;)

Hannes

Sure, no problem.
Not much to see... :)

Wow, what a nice render (of course looking much better with RT off). Chainmail looks stunning. We really need that render option selectable by object. Hope it arrives soon.

Indeed!
Btw, I used this tutorial to create the chainmail displacement:
http://www.3dtotal.com/index_tutorial_detailed.php?id=223&search=chainmail#.U3ZG9Sjxe1w  (Link fixed)
Chainmail is really fascinating. It took almost four months to create my own (real) chainmail coif and the shirt. 17000 rings, almost 26 pounds and a lot of blisters on my hands.

yossam

I would like to see a pic of you in the chainmail.  ;D

j meyer

Thanks,interesting variant.
Did you use riveted rings for your real one also?

Oh,and the link gives a 404.

Hannes

OK, I fixed the link.
No, I didn't use riveted rings. Just butted ones (I guess, this is the right definition). It was the first time I ever wove a chainmail shirt, so I didn't want to be disencouraged after the first 500 rings  ;D.
Maybe the next one... :P
Yossam, I'm afraid I don't have an image of myself in chainmail yet. But as soon as possible I'll post one especially for you ;). I'm waiting for the right weather. It's been raining a lot recently whenever my wife and I were on medieval markets. I don't want the shirt to rust prematurely ;D

yossam

Can't wait..............you just look like a person that would look right at home in it.  ;D

OK Yossam, I'm making a fool of myself. Here's an image in medieval outfit, but yet no chainmail...

yossam

See I told you............you belong on Game of Thrones.  ;)

Whoa, you take this seriously. Someday I'd like to attend one of those real knight tournaments (e.g. this one in Germany: http://www.ritterturniere.com/de/ritterturniere.html). Would make for great pictures, I am sure...

Hannes

This is indeed great fun. We have a lot of tournaments and medieval markets in the area where I live. I took this photo last year exactly when the knight's sword hit the apple.
