Title: More rock
Post by: Dune on September 03, 2016, 03:59:40 PM
Here's another file to dissect. Completely different from Mick's setup and not perfect, but you guys might gain some insight out of it. Renders well within the hour on my system, even with clouds and soft shadows. Without, it's 25 mins or so.

Thanks for sharing Ulco.

May i have a suggestion to all file sharers ?
Would be nice if you put your names in the files too.
After a time which file was from who is lost. I very seldom use others files.
But if i use someones file i want to mention him too.

Good idea Kadri, just changed it in the first post. Here's another, slightly adjusted file with the free edition (without the trees, I'm afraid). Some small changes in one or two nodes for a very different effect, but still just to get some ideas, it's not perfect.

Don't have a clue about most of it but I still thank you for sharing.

Just disable almost all nodes from the bottom up to almost the start, then see what happens if you enabled each node going down from the top again, and you get an idea what each level does. It's not THAT complicated, just maybe looks that way, because it isn't very organized.

Thanks, but I thinks you should use dandelO's device more.
Lots of errors, but works (tg4 0)

Yes, which device indeed?

dandelO's device is the  packing a lot of blue nodes inside a  single node.
Gets a better overview of the functions imbedded in the node.

(I know than dandelO is not the inventor of this, sorry but it is nice to have to have a name)

Gotcha...Group Container the Nodes

I do a lot of packing, but especially for novices that won't make it a lot easier. Sometimes there are links to nodes in other containers, that can't be recognized from the outside (I mean the arrows; hovering over them doesn't give a clue where they link to). For those people, a grouping in 'groups', but all visible might be a lot easier.

Yup, organization of nodes is 'all' and I find I'm using groups a lot more lately even 'unpacked'. Even when I load a massively scattered .tgc I tend to straighten it up and put in a container and capture all the nodes. That way upon re-opening it's all nice and neat. It's my TG4 resolution in fact to do this always.

Exactely Ulco !
I'm a beginner and I totally agree because it is not so easy to start with TG 4. It's so strange sometimes... ahhh...
BUT IT MAKES FUN !

I really examined this file from you Ulco and I must say, respect for your material. I gained a lot of insight from it.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing these good files!

Placing nodes in a group is ok.
But try to avoid overlaid other nodes.

Here is one of the Rock face files.... :)     Actually  two file shares here. You may get warnings....check objects and resave in your own projects with slight name change as I think some errors are from beta or tester versions.
