Test for Alpha Layer - Lens Flares in Imagine 3D v. 2.19
Make your own, perfect lens flares in Imagine and animate.

To the YouTube Video:

And here the scene again with much more particles:

---------------------------------------------------

I have found a very simple way how to let Imagine interact with very professional light and lens flares. Because the module lensflr2.ifx is already very stale and has no nice effects.

With my variant you can achieve the most beautiful lighting effects via simple multilayer rendering, which are otherwise only used by 3DS Max or Blender. In addition, my variant is completely simple and takes no time to calculate.

For the original-basic scene, I simply use a self-made filterbrush as a backflare ( Layer 1 )... which is only visible if a body hides the fake light.

This first rendered scene is then imported as a multilayer in a second scene and recalculated with the fake flare in Layer 2 quasi in real time.

I use exactly the same camera (path) position in the animation in Scene 2 and also position the second LensFlare exactly where the Layer 1 flare was positioned. So the Layer 2 Flare outshines the objects as in real ... and the scene looks very real.

Above all, you are no longer dependent on these pensive effects of the Imagine globals lensflr2.ifx module .... and you can design your scenes much more creatively. And you always have full control over your effect, which you can still readjust perfectly.

And I have to say ... the effect looks as if the scene was calculated with a real light source and a flare module.

So that you understand better how it is done, I have uploaded my scene here in the download area. Once you understand how easy this method works, you'll never again use the boring Imagine Lensflare module. Take a look at the multi-pass scene in the Action-Editor! Then you also understand how everything works.

You can download the project file here:

Hello Perry my friend, I wish you also a happy Easter!

Yes, Grass can also be created in Imagine without much problem with the particle system. You simply have to use the Particle Requester in the Detail Editor. You can then integrate your own objects as a particle into your respective object for the system in Detail Editor.

Take a look at the picture on the website in your head. I also created the grass around the lettering in this way and way. It's really easy.

And here I already uploaded a small workshop in 2012 and showed how to do that

So you see .... you can always learn something new in Imagine

Ps. Most people who use the program have not realized what Imagine can do for a long time. You just have to be creative with the old lady.

* Laugh * There are miracles again and again..



Oh by the way .... because you once said that you always have problems with character animations in Imagine. I have just uploaded a tool that can animate professional character in Imagine. The tool can be used on Imagine Objects BVH motion capture data. The tool lingered forever in my archives ... and I never used it myself. But you can see in the many examples in the file that you can do the dancing baby with Imagine, for example.

And in conjunction with Z-Meshes, this tool can do a great job in Imagine, because you can do without bones altogether.

So you get a little Easter miracle right away

Holy cow, I never knew this existed! I've tried kinematics in imagine in the past but it took me forever to set up bones to make a can of pepsi "dance". You are a treasure trove of info buddy!

 Re: Happy Easter! - Rendered with Imagine 2.19
Hello Perry, just try the BVH module in peace. You can tell me then your experiences times. I would be very happy :))

I tried it on me 2 days ago ... but somehow it only worked halfway. The best would be if you try it with an older Imagine version from 1.3 times. Because the programmer it only up to the Imagine Win version 1.3.4. has tested itself. I am unfortunately no longer in possession of these versions :(

Maybe even a Visual Basic expert has to look at the source code again, because the Japanese programmer had a small problem with the translation into the Western character set - from line 3 onwards.
