:painter: Bryce 7 and Apophysis

This finally had to happen ... sigh :shrug:. I have been plaing NWN2 the whole day long. :crazy:
Here's my puzzle of Gith's Silver Sword's shards. Good luck, Knight Captain! ;)



I know, it's absolutely not obvious, that this one is some kind of fractal manipulation.. But it is! :nod:

I took my Apo-fractal "Frozen wings"



and turned and twisted it into a Bryce texture. Then I applied this tecture to a sphere, which - together with a radial light source - is placed within another sphere, made of mirrorglass.
The rest is physics: refraction and reflection. ;)

How do you apply an image as a texture?

*Slimzbread is the true master of doing this. Here is what he told me, when I asked him almost the same question:

"You asked about using apophysis image in Bryce.
When You use a radial light in Bryce, you can put a material on it, when You place Your light inside of the sphere, click the little (E) on the side of the light it will open a window (light lab), and on the right in the middle You will see (USE GEL) click that then click (Image) under it.

Then a second window opens for the image that Your going to use. go to the first little window on the left and click (load),and find Your image that Your going to use. now the second window is the alpha channel, if You use a image in that one, the white of the image will disappear and only use the black part of the image (if not, click the solid white button and click delete) and the third window is what You will using on the light, click the check mark at the bottom.
now You have a couple of options that You can do, You can move the sphere around some in the little preview in the middle, because when You use the image, You will see a seam, so You will have to move it around abit so that You cant see it in the overall image that Your trying to make.

Another way is the (M) button. the materials lab when open. On the upper right side You will see 6 little buttons. the last one is the one You want to use for this, its called the (texture mapping mode), i use (Sinusoidal) but You can play around to find the one that looks best to You,, i always say try diffent things, You never know what might come up."

So - this is how you can use any image you want either as a gel for lights or as a texture for a material. :D

Thanks for the tip.

:) Hope it works. This either can be quite a lot of try&error until you reach an interesting result, or will end up this way: :crash:

Oh I only kill my computer when it does not save a bryce file that I clearly saved half a dozen times while working on the file. Yeah I think my first try is going to turn out very well. I already have it rendering though I am on a slightly slow computer and already have a large render going so it might take a day or two.

I see ... :) And I'm curious now. :eager:
Are you going to send me a link, when you posted the image here?

I will. Also just think of a heart light in the middle of a crystal cave of sorts. That is the only way I can put it.
