Quote from: N-drju on June 13, 2020, 07:23:14 amOkay, there is something I really don't understand...

The requirement is to submit a pre-postwork image. A raw render output. Yet, the submission page clearly shows two dialogue boxes - one for a pre-postwork image. The other for a postwork image.

How shall I interpret the submission page then when confronted to the contest rules?

The reason I ask is that I don't really see much of a "postwork potential" for my image judging from the test renders. The only postwork that I plan for is my signature.

Which brings me to the next question which, I'm afraid, has not been properly answered yet; is it okay to put a signature onto a finished (raw output) image?

Any help is much appreciated. ;)
As with all NWDA challenges in the past, Contestants must submit an image "Pre-post work" and an image to be judged that would include postwork (if any) If you are not using any post-work you are still required to submit 2 images per the submission forum that is extremely straight forward. As far as signatures as with all previous challenges they are allowed.

Good luck

Ok, thanks. This is my first entry ever, hence the confusion.

I take it that the raw render should be a directly converted .jpg instead of a 44MB 32-bit .exr?

There is a limit of 8mb in size as one of the requirements, so I guess it's down to .tiff.

I just wonder... is it possible to somehow predict the size of the final output? The TG output I mean. Not the graphics editor resave.

I'm wondering the same thing

Maybe this was answered somewhere else and I didn't see it.

Contest rules state that final image size is 8GB maximum.  Or are we allowed to convert the raw rendered image to PNG format and then submit the PNG image as out entry?

Since it is targeted at the web, I take it the output format should be as small as possible, probably .jpg being the best option.

Do we get a confirmation e-mail, after we sent our entry? It said something like "it has been sent", but just to be sure...

...like you check, if the door is really locked, after you have already checked it five times... ;)

I sent out a couple of them today Hannes. You were one of them

Cool! Some really nice stuff so far. Though I don't see any travelers in entry 2... or do I miss something?

Is .tiff file the same as .tif file?

The reason I ask is that I have no other option but to render my final work in four crops. When saving composited crops without changing the file format, I get that extra "F" which makes me worried...

It all comes down to one question which is - what do we understand by "raw render output image"? A native TG extension? Or an unaltered image in whatever format?

Sorry for my first-timer ignorance. :( I just don't want my work rejected because of such a detail...
