Non-linear transmission by Vidom Non-linear transmission by Vidom
I found this strange machinery in the alien spaceship I'm exploring :-)

Made with Mandelbulb3D; almost no editing (just added my sign and tuned the contrast a little)

Please download it full size, it's more spectacular :meow:

Some cool machine. I'm sure it does even cooler stuff than it looks ;) Clap

Wow. This must have taken quite a while. I wish I could make stuff like this.

Yes, rendering was longer than usual to have a better smoothness and to calculate reflections and DOF, but not so long as you would think! Thanks! :-)

Jeeebus, teach me your colouring

Who is Jeeebus? :D
For coloring I made very few personal color maps from photographs I made. I should make many more but I'm too lazy. The one used here, and in maybe half of my metal colored works, is just a photo of close up fireworks I took in New Year's eve. With a 2seconds exposition I could record different colored streaks from different fireworks, as long as bright blinding lights and sparkles. Then it's just a matter of color-map resizing to have anything from multicolored streaks to single colored dark&shadow effects like this one. Moving the color map on this one, for example, I could get red or white or green or blue hues, but I liked the yellow gold one. To enhance the metal effect you increase the reflective properties of the material and you add calculated reflections if needed.
A color-map with many dark and bright streaks is useful to add the illusion of many lights too, since in MB3D there are only 6 real lights available :-)

cool thanks, I have billions of photos, but I've never been able to successfully implement a colour or light map, they must be in the wrong folder or sumfin.
Oh Jeeebus is a silly way of blasphemising Jesus' name, a bit like "Holy sh:t"

I recommend you don't make them too large, I got an 'out of memory' error on largest ones. 1 or 2MB should work well but the smaller, the faster they'll load.
When in Mandelbulb3D, up left you see the options Open, Save, Save pic, Utilities and Ini; click on Ini, then on Initial directories: 'Images for Maps' is the folder that must contain your pictures which will be available in the Lighting panel.
When you save your pictures in the folder of your choice (same folder set in Ini) you must rename them with a numeral greater than 1; that name will be the 'Map number' identifying them.
Hope this helps :-)

I can see this as some alternate dimension interstellar pump room, cool. The focal depth really does something for the scale you perceive it as.

I rarely use DOF, it seldom satisfies me. This is an exception, I myself was surprised by the effect :-)

Wow. Do you make animations on YouTube? These would look amazing on slow zoom.

Vidom Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, I don't do animations; the results aren't worth the rendering time needed. For the quality I'd like, at least :-)
