A 3d rendered wallpaper
A faulty fan had caused my computer to lose the contents of it's hard drive (before I joined these forums) and I became annoyed. I just said "blah." I decided to make a nonsense wallpaper out of the statement "blah" and this is what came up. First, I made the blocky letters in "blah." Then, I textured them in this weird (and slightly reflective but I don't think you can see it in this image) goldium/bronzium material. I then added a flat plane that was reflective under "blah". I added normal mapping so that the reflections were distorted like you would see in water.

Then, I extended the plane so that it covered the whole screen. I added text above "blah" but it didn't turn out well in the reflection. I decided to keep in in anyways then I rendered the final product and saved it to a jpeg. I set the desktop to the image and then was pleased with the desktop. It has been about a month since the incident where the computer has practically died and I have just now uploaded it with a Ninja Revolution image. Feel free to comment. :)

Re: A 3d rendered wallpaper
Blender. It's kinda hard though. It took me months to get used to it.

It is the same thing I use to take screenshots of the moon base parts and the cannon. It is fairly decent. Not as many features as 3ds max or Lightwave, but it is a decent program. The one thing that stands out from the other 3d modeling programs (Anim8or, Wings 3d, etc.) is that it actually got passed 1.0! I think you can find stuff on it at google videos, youtube and other places.

That's pretty cool. I can never be bothered with doing 3D stuff really, though I played around a bit on Sketchup.

3d gets to be very rewarding after a while. Even ask Jamul!

Re: A 3d rendered wallpaper
That is pretty good.

I especially like the rippling effect and the reflection in it.

Re: A 3d rendered wallpaper
Thanks, I finally found a way to make realistic normal mapping of water to make the reflections ripple while only using procedural textures.
