Talking I got bored in CLass - 10-10-2006, 07:11 AM

I got really bored and decided to play around with lights and camera functions. yes i used the example to help me but i think i took it one step further. i made the orbits orf the rings more realistic by changing the style to abrupt.

Angry Bored in class? - 10-10-2006, 12:48 PM

Good grief, what's the younger generation coming to (don't answer )?

If you really get interested in lighting - which is a very interesting subject - there are some good tutorials at

Just something to play around with: Do you realize that the lighting in a point light can be set for negative numbers? Try doing that and choosing different color settings for the light.

Ah, youth is wasted on the young - at my age I sleep anytime I can. At least you have one less planet to plot than Gabe and I did.

Seriously, if you want to do that (plot the planets, not sleep), there are some very nice free 3D models of the planets out on the web - just do a search.

One place to start: http://www.amazing3d.com/free/free2.shtml

Even easier, just get the .jpeg file and use it as a texture on a high poly sphere - see attached Jupiter file.

Good luck on building a solar system. Please post it if you finish it! I'd love to see it.

Here's an idea...

Try gathering whatever textures of planets you can.... any planet... and screw around with 'em, like inverting the colors.......Voila! A weird, alien version of a solar system.

...Dang, I'm awesome.

Exclamation It's Kirk! - 10-31-2006, 08:54 AM

OMG, it's Kirk! I want an autograph! lol

Seriously, I'm sitting here, watching him find some pics on this site that people wouldn't expect to find in here. So a question arises: Why is there pictures of William Shatner in the website directory?
