"Illusion" of a different sort

This is my first post, so don’t laugh.

Most of what I’ve done so far is the result of some experiment or another. This is no different.

that is an intresting illusion. I would say that it is simple, but you still see the shadow of the stick even though you can’t see the stick.

hey thats awesome! thats really cool… how did u do that? i know a couple of ways to cheat and get that…did u cheat? =)

Yes, it is an extremely simple little scene. I probably should have mentioned that it wasn’t much to look at.

The shadow is there because:

  1. It kind of adds to the “illusion.”
  2. I couldn’t figure out how to get rid of it. :slight_smile:

As far as cheating goes…yes, I probably cheated. I prefer to call it, “Using another one of the many tricks in blender.”
The idea spawned after playing around with a material’s alpha, without the “ztransp” button pushed in.
This scene has nothing to do with the “ztransp” button, though.

Really nice…

sad you weren’t in for the Optical Illusion contest…

Get prepared for future ones (there is the composition running and the Photorealism one is approaching!)

Hehe, nice.

Would love to se a cow walk by :o

Wonder what would happen if the stick fell through the door and slightly to the side. Guess we’ll never know since it’s too long to fit.
