« on: January 07, 2007, 09:47:11 AM »

Everything looks good.  I like the atmosphere of the drawing and it feels like I could go out on that ledge and jump into the clouds.  What's underneath them?   :o
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

Nice!  Did you split horizontally or vertically?

What was your ocean/water settings?  I haven't been able to achieve this effect yet...


Thanks

I notice that you are rendering more than 50% of the width in the two renders.  What method did you use to combine them?  This would definately have a benificial effect on the "edges don't match exactly" problem.

i opened each one in paintshop pro and cropped them, and noticed 1 was 1 pixel higher than the other but that was soon fixed with a crop too... i make a blank images the dimensions of both halves conbinned and then copied each half in as seperate layers so they can be selected 1 by 1 and then just lined them up... i know photo shop cs2 has a photo merge but i can't get that working as well...

For people interested in how to join two halves of an image, the easiest way is to render each half with an overlap and then open them in Photoshop. From there you can set up a canvas of the size you want (the size of the 100% render). paste the left image in and then the right image. Line both so they match up and then add a layer mask to the right image layer. Now you can paint away the hard line down the middle using the layer mask and black airbrush. (by painting black onto the layer mask, you make it transparent and able to see through to the layer below). This is very easy and takes about 10 mins if that to do.

Hopes this helps, Simon.
I just need to tweak that texture a bit more...

I was hoping there might be an easier method that my software could exploit to automatically recombine images from frames that have been split. The methods above both involve human input.

if you have photo shop cs2 or elements, then i'd try a simple render then try the photomerge panaramic function and see if that works..
