Vue D'esprit, which one as theres 3 versions. You say you bought the model into it, is that the integrated version for Maya? I thought it may have work vice versa

Thats impressive vegetation, Ive been considering it myself, if its good enough for ILM...

Look forward to the rest

Jay

Cheers Jay,

Its Vue 5 Infinte that im using, and its the standalone version. Some of the vegetation i created in maya and exported it as an obj to vue, i then textured it in vue aswell. Vue is an awesome program and i definatly reccomend it, and i didnt even kno the ILM uses it. wow.

Cheers Jay.

Oh by the way anything ud like to see changed or added?

Thanks

I think the foothills in the back could be a little bigger and maybe you could add some trees, as Im sure with these amount of plants, there'd be some as well

Cheers

nice work

reminds me a little of the bugs life island only in the wet season. The current lighting makes it look like there should be lots of mist about.

The sunshine island scene you posted is great! I'd say the trees/land should be a lot brighter though.

Post a link to a 1280x1200 (jpg?) file hosted somewhere else - we can then appreciate the detail more

Hey Mic,

Its easy really you just export your object from maya as an OBJ file, and in Vue goto file ----> import object, select ur maya object and tada ur object is in the scene.

How long till you get Vue? Itll be good to compare work as not many people have it.

Cheers
