I need help / Re: CXR File Save
« on: 2019-11-27, 14:23:59 »
Hello guys,

I stumbled upon this issue lately too and believe found a pretty good workaround :)
All that is needed is to set path of every single element on same location and same file. So for example if I have 20 elements I would path them all to C:/pass.jpg - this is going to make saving of excessive elements much faster and in the end there is only one file to delete - as they all replace the same pass.jpg while saving.
Othervise original CXR file working normally with all elements inside.

Cheers!

Yup, great stuff yet again! Sincere congratulations! :)
Thank you so much nkilar! :))
Nice work. Watched the video. Where u talked about the world we live in is comprised of thousands of variables and nailing those variables is spot on. Lighting is the most important of those because it is what gives our eyes and different surfaces the information our brain processes and interprets. Without it, there is no information, interpretation or knowledge gained about the environemnt. What we get is just pitch black.
Thanks! Cant agree more! :)
Mind blowing and so inspiring!
Thanks!
Light transports the beauty and emotion that a location causes inside you. Objects and colors can be great... but without the atmosphere of the light everything is just a stage.

And the aesthetics in Jakub´s lighting is an artwork in itself.

Rarely enjoyed CG images that much.

That building is also incredible.

Great work and approach, Jakub !
Pure inspiration.
That means so much to me - thank you for your kind words!!

Hello coronauts,
so finally after a lot of time spend I would love to share with you short film - CGI: An Artistic Medium.
I hope that it is going to help understand friends, families, clients and everyone what CGI is and what a CGI artist devote much time and effort to. I hope that the film builds a correct and general knowledge and is going to be relevant.

Here is official description:

A partnership with world renowned architect Amal Hanafi, The Beldi Project required giving life to spaces where CGI has been prioritized before photography. I spent a week in Rio absorbing the emotions of the building, then produced a series of images that demonstrated its beauty and functionality.
As a result, there has been an Art Exhibition and 12 minutes Short Film "CGI: An Artistic Medium" created with strong beliefs in CGI.
I believe that CGI is an artistic tool. Just like photography is, just like painting is and just like sculpting is. So far, CGI has been mostly used for commercial purposes and has been very technical, which it still is. In my eyes, it is another tool that can reflect artistic soul. I believe that one of the biggest issues is that people don't know what CGI is. Running into a random person, it is very hard and imaginary to explain. Many times simply perceived as photographs. I have had this belief for many years but now found a platform that has strong enough story and visibility to share it. Not only in CGI but in Architecture, Art and many different fields too. I would love every artist to be able to show what CGI is and believe that because of technical advancements and enlightenment, in couple of years there might be recognition of CGI as an Art Form and general knowledge of the process and efforts behind. I believe that CGI is going to be in museums in couple of years.

The film conveys a story of creative collaboration between architect Amal Hanafi and CGI artist Jakub Cech that led to an Art Exhibition of CGI images. Film portrays general process and efforts behind CGI while striving to bring general knowledge and recognition of CGI as an Art form for broad audience.
Story spans across multiple locations in Slovakia and Rio De Janeiro. Filmed by UK duo Raspberry & Jam and live Orchestra scores by Tomas Koppl.


To further support spread of general knowledge of what CGI is, there has been an interactive webpage created with naive illustrations by Simona Cechova here https://www.jakubcech.net/what-is-cgi/.

A short film will be premiered on Academy Days X and on Spiecial Event in Kiev, both in October 2019. I wish that it is going to open up an discussion.

3ds Max and Corona rendering engine were used. Many materials were scanned and all materials were created from scratch. Custom 3d objects modelled in 3ds Max, vegetation growth in SpeedTree and cloths simulations in Marvelous Designer. Using custom color mapping, lighting and techniques presented in my talks.

Stunning as always. I really like how you pay attention to incorporate small imperfections such as the deviation in the width of the reveal where the spiral staircase pierces the floor slab. Did you model that staircase in 3dsmax?

Do you plan on offering any assets to download?

Thanks for sharing this work!
Hello John,
Thank you so much! Yes I modelled staircase in 3Ds Max. From this project there are no assets going to be for download unfortunately.
Thanks!

Very impressive, Jacub!
I like your crisp images style and very emotional tonemapping, hope you'll mention how you achieved such quality in you future videos on youtube.
Watched all of them btw, they are very inspiring.
I'm asking for a request. Can you share your latest version of HDRI preview script?
I want to include it as a part of Corona Renderer Tweaker script, maybe with some personal tweaks.
Posted latest version here:
https://corona-renderer.com/forum/index.php?topic=6827.60
Thank you - it means a lot! Very very interesting script actually haha!
My HDRI script is available here http://jakubcech.net/hdri_preview.zip - no updates since then haha!
But please let me know if you get this to your script - would use it from there then.
Jakub

I simply love curtains! Nice work! :)
Thank you!!

Gorgeous images.

I love how your post-production style has evolved since Beautiful CGI. The blue glow is prevalent.

Everything is nice, especially the image with the water running from the washroom faucet.
I can hear the water flowing in my mind and feel the ambiance of the place!

I love seeing your work, looking forward to your film :)

That is very kind of you.
Thank you so much! :)

Hey - the Prune Scene is not working for me - I have ALC virus (helpers) in the scene called "¡¡×ý×û" and "×þ×ü".
Anyway - Prune Scene does not remove those - however ALC_fixup_v1_2.ms does - can you update Prune Scene script?

Now that is really incredible work in here :)
Its insane how you were able to push the realism so far without introducing crushed or flattened blacks - wow! That is insanely hard task, almost never done right. My compliments!

Still missing Color Tint picker (aka VFB+ style) - Is there anybody using Tint at all? This is a beautiful feature but in current implementatio (blindly trying to get it right) is just useless (or not?). I am just saying there are many scenes (or HDRIs) that has a strong color cast that need to be fixed.
Or at least, it would be great to have Green-Magenta slider (aka Lightroom Tint) inside Tint Color Selector. It would cover 99% of cases - as in reality Lightrooms Tint + Temperature does.
Also DOF picker would be great.
Can I get some update on these topics please? :))
