Contrail Maker
« on: May 20, 2008, 03:11:09 PM »
Just uploaded a clip at Ashundar for masking a cloud to create a contrail effect.

Would this work as an airplane condensation trail if I changed the colour of it to a greyish white? Still waiting for it to appear on ashundar otherwise I'd have just tried it myself.
Figured out how to do clicky signatures

It's up at Ashundar. 

The cloud color was just changed to black in the example photo you can change it to what you want.

Thought I'd post this here if you missed it on the Ashundar thread.
This was a lot of fun to play with. Only problem is that it's a bear on resources.
This was rendered at 1, 10, 1 I think and this 640x480 is as high as I can go.
I tried to do a crop render at 1024x but I got smart and jumped up the samples for the cloud, and that kill it..
I'm thinking on another computer or a bank of PS3's. ;)
Thanks ogre!!

Wow, Mandrake.  Impressive. 

Is this possible with the TGD you provided or did you discover anything else it would help to know?

Thanks,
Made the clouds whitish
I put the light source behind the engines also added an Adjust saturation colour and power fractal between the atm and the merge shader. Don't know how much diff. that actually made.

As long as I'm posting tonight, thought I'd let you know that the heavy node builds that our only come out at night friend ogre con-cocks not to mention Mr. Lamposts builds, are much more friendly with the latest build!!
I could barely get this out at 640X before!

Ogre, do you have the actual files for this newest version on Ashundar?

Never mind...I wasn't logged in.   ::)
