Transparency can be done in curvy 2 (option menu to select fog) and 3beta using the alpha slider and selecting fog and maybe glow. so each objects alpha/transparency can be controlled. you could probably use a gradient texture to give a better fading of light. Bryce 7 was free for ages but daz are c...

free textures

Here is a link to some free seamless textures (2048 x 2048) I made in Genetica 3. They have a bump/height map aswell that works good in curvy3d . I'll add more as I create them http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3765/8803720782_f3393783d1_q.jpg ts by gssev , on Flickr There should be a link to my seamles...

Thanks for the feedback. I have the basic version of genetica 3 which does great seamless textures so its ideal for a quick object texture which I could paint onto if needed. The UV relax is a great tool in curvy for texturing. I did have to UV relax again if I did any mesh adjustments. I'm goin to ...

Quick thing

Did this quite quick in V3 beta with the line tool and one subtraction for the mouth. Used the inflate tool for the joints. Used 2k textures again and ambient occlusion.

Added higher res seamless texture ( 2048x2048) much better for the details. Think the new colour is better as well .

Cheers, I like the way its easy to keep and hide the source object groups so you can go back if your not happy. A scroll bar would be good, I sometimes thought I'd lost some objects.

DinoWolf

A exercise for creature creation using Curvy 3 beta , Happy with the workflow and the textures are better. All done in Curvy3 beta, the head was the only bit that used v3s slab object everything else was lines and a good use of the mask feature for focusing on areas to adjust. http://farm8.staticfli...

Cheers, cant wait to try the new bump maps. Here's some pics of a reduced object from Curvey (12000 polys) and I converted the displacement map (curvey map ) to a normal map in Xnormal. One is rendered in carrara and the other I tested in iclone both with good results. Carrara render http://farm9.st...

Love the design, Is the pattern done using curvy map and is it hi resolution? I like the way Curvy i s great for making robot type objects. It was one of the reasons I tried it.

Quadbot using curvy map

Playing about with Curvy map on this to see how much detail can be done. quite a lot and with bump on top of it it is quite effective . The poly count was high for export so I'll try and create a normal map in xnormal to go on a lower resolution. Added the ambient occlusion as well. http://farm6.sta...

Curvy3d Cyborg (V2 & V3 beta)

Started with the V2 demo and did the green organic bit, was impressed by the ease of being able to build a model so I ordered the full version and used the V3 beta to make the robot bits using the slab maker tool and some boolean subtraction. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7290/8741041531_c3112c167d....
