thanks bear. i'm currently working on the next camera set, so will be re-rendering some of the older ones with the new colors and effects, and updated models.

@00:05thanks very much my friend.

i think these latest ones work particularly well with the darker backgrounds, the previous glow effects i was rendering didn't stand out as much, although technically they were about the same luminosity as these ones.

@00:05wow. so the darker backgrounds really make it stand out. I was going to ask how you brightened the glow without losing the color within but thought that might be a silly question so I held back hehe.

@00:05it wouldn't of been a silly question, i'm still trying to get my head around the concept of perceived color.

basically, in blender's composite editor, where we can mix the background layers with various foreground layers, there are a number of blend modes, similar to those found in 2d image editors like photoshop.

some blend modes brighten the pixels, some darken and some shift the hues around. trying to mix all these is still as much experimentation for me, as it is an exact science.

i believe the artistic skill comes from the instinct to stop the experimentation at certain stages, and committing those settings to the overall effect. where it gets really tricky is if we're also applying visual effects like color cycling.

over the last year of me working full time on this project, i've probably spent more time experimenting than actually producing the work we see here. although i am learning more each day, so some parts of the work flow has been sped up. it's still quite daunting at times.

i hope some of that verbose reply was interesting?

@00:05it was VERY interesting. Thanks for taking the time to explain. Although the process you explained does sound rather daunting I look forward to working in that medium someday and have taken my second tutorial- still familiarizing with tools and what they do.

@00:05cool, and thanks.

also good to hear your continuing to learn the basics of blender, that is the steepest part of the learning curve in a lot of ways.

please remember to send me links to any of the tutorials you found interesting, i might learn a trick of two from them myself, especially as they keep changing things in blender, so even vets like me sometimes struggle to find tools or features we've used before.

on that note, it's highly recommended to find tutorials which are published for the version of blender you have installed. i'm using the latest 2.65 official version.

@00:05hello. I had planned to answer these in detail but haven't seemed to get there heh heh. sorry.
Re: links I don't have the tutorial links right off hand, cuz when I watched these they were from you tube which I can run on my big screen tv. I don't see the the links but could easily find them by searching Blender Tutorial in You Tube. I went to something like beginning and basics part 1... anyway i previewed a few of them and found that some are in foreign languages and/or are of extremely poor quality. it would be hard to watch- let alone trying to learn anything from. hehehe. i went to the first one in english and went with those. But yeah i plan to do more that will be on line and i could send links and stuff:) these ones i saw were made with a cam-corder in someone's living room. A while back you sent me a recommended tutorial link in a note and gave me a basic description. it sounded interesting and more... comprehensive than these that i watched. Maybe you remember and could send that link again?
