I've been playing around with mixing HDR and Toon style characters lately, and loving it, (using them as little gift animations for friends)... although I obviously still have a lot to learn about HDR settings, Toon Reflections and controlling the lens flares a little better. So any suggestions or links to any relevant tutes would be greatly appreciated.
Huge thanks to Bigboss for helping me turn his toon trousers into shorts for the G5 Cloth guy when the mesh and opacity were determined to drive me bat-crazy... (Normally, I'm a whizz at clonecloths, but the hidden segments had been removed to help keep the polygon count low, and I tried rebuilding them in my old pal Cinema 4D, where there's nearly nothing it can't do, and I still managed to flop about helplessly).... So I'm quixotically grateful, coz I use the toon dude in cargo shorts all the time now...
Kudos also to Warlord for his really fun animated Jumpgate which was a great bargain and taught me a **lot** about animating the colours and textures for plasma, just by playing around with it for a few minutes.
So I've also got the Stargate portal by Wolfzone on my wishlist now, getting braver, and can't wait to see what amazing fun dimensions it can take me...
