thank s 2disbetter ,
I may do a Shockwave movie on how to model simple flowers, and plants later on this week if I get some time…
Blender dose not have “dof” to speak of… although you can fake one useing the node system… just set your background is a seperate layer, and tell the node system to render a blur oin that layer…
i did it the old fashoned way, i rendered my scene, then I took everything in the forground and rendered it in one layer, withthe RGBA button turned on so I get an alpha map… then I load up GIMP and my final render and the alpha map image, use the alpha for my selection mask and then do a standard blur 2 or 3 times.
as you can see above I did not get the masking selected properly, and I got a bit of a bloom/blur effect around the edges.
Ok, I will take a look, and see if I can upload from this terminal, perhaps I can make it include a Creative Commons licence to avoid copyrite stuff…
you have a nice website, I especialy like al the black and yellow… not a verry common color combo now a days.
seems like everyone is STUCK with makeing Blue, and white and pastel colors when themeing anything now a days.
I look at almost every desktop them for Linux window managers, an I se the same thing over and over.
Blinding white backgrounds, with the smallest black text possible and a shade of blue here and there. (the shade of blue denotes a reason to make a new theme name, so they add a new wallpaper and call it done)
anyways nice site
ok well I got to get back to my rendering, so I can pay rent this week.
thanks for your intrests everyone
