…re:how clueless they are about all things render-related.
I was looking for certain stuff on google, and I came across a few relatively recent threads on various sites where Vray users were doing the oh-so-familiar blind-leading-the-blind thing.
// POV-Ray, Vray, YafaRay, mental ray, now Iray – or actually iray, same as mr… creativity much? //
I suspect that for many, archviz – while being a job, although I know a few for whom it is a hobby – is much the same: an alluring yet uncharted territory.
I also saw a few threads by users of other renderers discussing certain PBR-related features… and I thought once again that we are blessed that we have the DNA team.
Yeah, it probably seems weird, the way I am so personally attached to 3Delight. But… you have to realise that I had access to books on 3D shading/rendering when I was in elementary school max, and I fell in love with the idea right away. Yeah, kids’ libraries were weird in the early 90s here… and all for the better.
I still have a hard time believing that today, I can do all the things I could only dream about doing back then.
Yes I did dream about coding. You should’ve seen me when I discovered in the mid-to-late 90s, when I got my first home PC, that MS Office included Visual Basic for Applications. It meant I could put the theory to good use (with a little adjustment for the GUI) – the theory I had learnt as a child about BASIC programming from another book .
I’m a damn bad coder. But b’vec, do I love it.
