@Lamias Thanks bud, just remember that what you are seeing here is just the beginning. The set is a Daz set from Stone Mason. But it does take some know how to make it work with iClone correctly (optimizing textures and making it pbr ready) and a little bit of talent to make it look beautiful (lighting with iclones new rendering tools), I will be making a tutorial later on this year showing the how to's for optimizing a DAZ scene.  So Stay tuned.  In the meantime check out my GI, PBR, and LUT tutorials I did for reallusion, I apply everything I teach on those tutorials to the images you see here.  Wink

Cheers,

Cris

It really WAS a great webinar, Chris -- I don't know if it was just your subject, or how you presented, but I think that's the best and most informative one I've ever attended or watched later (and I've seen a ton).  You clearly showed the best way to use the editor, along with hot key shortcuts and such and it just was very well put together.  Congrats on such an effort.




Cheers mate, glad you enjoyed it. I tried to make it as fun and informative as possible.  Smile  
By Kelleytoons - 3 Years Ago
I have no idea where my reply went -- into the ethernet I guess.

Anyway, while I have zero belief I will get the survey RL is supposedly sending out (I get ads but nothing else from RL, despite my $$$ with them), I would hope those who do fill it out will say that length isn't a factor at all.  It would be like going to a great film and then complaining it was too long -- not going to happen.

here is some character lighting. work in progress.

Very good tutorial i enjoyed it . As you mention quality substance textures play a large part in taking your shots up to the next level of fidelity. But the GPU in your tut  is pushing up to 4GB in a still shot with no animated character in it. Its some thing people need to be realistic about what there system can do when looking at tuts on high spec systems  . Be good to have a bit more of a breakdown in terms of memory use and the cost of different lighting technics etc

Best thing any one can do IMO is save your pennys and get a 1080 gtx and subscribe to substance store  and build up a library of PBR textures ready to go . Also  8GB GPUs should be dropping in price before long and more people will be able to put the pedal to the metal with IC7 its a magnificent beast that needs feeding

Agreed, 4 gigs on a video card is the minimum and hardly enough for a full scene with characters in them. Specially with GI on. Memory management is a must in any case, even on 12 gig cards. It is super easy to fill the card up just to make the scene pretty and then forget you still need memory for characters, animation, etc, etc. You can still do stuff with a 4 gig card, also don't forget in that scene i am transitioning from one 4k hdr image to another 4k and using hires voxes, Most of the time you will only need one hdr image, and sometimes you will not even need a 4k one, a 2k hdr image  for lighting and far away reflections is enough. And you can always put a hi res Jpg sky background to save some memory as well, don't forget you can un-sync them.  Its all about working with your system limitations and deciding what is the more important part you want to show off. These and many more tips will be added to the "how to optimize a scene" tutorial.
Cheers,
Stuckon3d

Here are some work in progress images of a set im going to use for a short. I still need to do one more pass on the textures, right now the buildings only have a solid color texture for metallic and roughness. I'm going to create a custom one for each building.

Wow is that the Streets of Venice set??? I was on the fence about it but now, woah... that looks awesome. A tutorial for optimizing Daz crazy textures would be a very welcome addition. They have some pretty great stuff but kinda go nuts with the texture sizes. It's all too common a theme with their sets.

Thanks Colin, btw are the links opening in a new tab or are they sending you to photobucket? 

Cheers,
Cris AKA Stuckon3d

PS: if the links are sending you to photobucket, does anyone know the proper text syntax so that the images open in a new tab. My setting at photobucket are made so that you are not sent back to them. But for some reason i do get sent there when i click on the images. Any help on this will be greatly appreciated since people at photobucket can't . thank you.

Wonderful rendering! I have not yet had time to test the engine on complete scenes .. but ... seeing this ... it's very convincing!

Thank you Pixtim, as far as posting them here, i cant, i already reached my limit.  Sad    
 I'm trying to convince RL to expand it.  Tongue

Outdoor lighting is something of an issue for me as well. I am trying my best, and still it looks fake enough. I haven't tested it in Iclone 7 yet, but I think it's safe to say that I am the one with the problem, not the version of the software.

Glad I am not alone in this Tongue

A simple tutorial would help greatly. Smile

Cool Stuckon!!! But I can't see Full rez...  Ermm


Working on it, sorry about that, photobucket changed the way they display images in forums, im looking for a better image repository to link my images to. I'm about done with them. they have the worst customer service, and the fact that they force you to go to their website filled with adds even thou i pay to have my images there is ridiculous.  if anyone can suggest a better place to link my images to please let me know. 

Cheers!

here is a work in progress for the next webinar, it will cover lighting and animation workflow to get the most speed out of iray and iclone, what you see here is straight out of iray no compositing yet.

By Kelleytoons - 3 Years Ago
I can texture Stonemason's stuff well enough, but what I like the most is your outdoor lighting here.  While I *think* I've got indoor lighting fairly under control (thanks to help from you and other tuts) my outdoor stuff still sucks.  I get the feeling I'm missing something obvious, and I probably am, but even a simple 15 minute tutorial on how you lit this would be amazingly helpful.
By justaviking - 3 Years Ago
Agreed... an EXCELLENT webinar.  Thank you.

Watching someone work "live" is even better than watching a tutorial where all the little side-paths are avoided or edited out.  Little things like seeing a keyboard shortcut are some of the benefits from watching another person "work" in the system.  And of course the Q&A session was excellent too.  You sure do know your subject.  Well done.

Hi Kelley, send me a pm and ill forward you the link to the survey.  Wink 
  as far as the : I'm not sure where my reply went....
I thought I answered it right after your post on this thread. So if you did not see it with this last group one it is because of that. I promise you were not being excluded.  Wink
 And as far as lenght i was referring to the tutorials on youtube not the webinars. Smile

Awesome work!  Wonder if you are going to be up for teaming up on projects.  Have this feature script that is too expensive to shoot live.  Have a director, script supervisor and line producer standing by.  Been talking to some talent here in Hollywood for voiceover and to do head shoots (front/side) for CC 2.0

Just wondering...

Excellent Cris, as always. CoolSmoooothSmile

We've had a short discussion here on the iClone/Iray differences when using DOF. Did you set the close-up shot up while viewing the scene in the Iray Preview window, or have you found a formula for getting it just right using iClone settings?
By TonyDPrime - 3 Years Ago
@Stuckon3D

FANTASTIC -
I imagine towards the end, where the axe goes by his face, you could have the camera zoomed in at a different angle to showcase that slowdown effect.
So awesome!!!!!!!

Mind blowing as always Cris. CoolSmooooth


thanks Gerry Smile , next step is to optimize the texturing, Daz models are great but they dont optimize things much (they use 2048k textures for things that need 256k only), plus some of the old content is not pbr ready so a lot conversion was needed as well. But it is getting there. Currently my scene is using 9.2 gigs of my video card for the whole city. I hope i can take things down to 7 so i have plenty of room for the characters, props, and animation. I'll keep posting work in progress. 

Cheers,

Cris
PS: I'll probable do a tutorial on texture optimizing in the near future.

By stuckon3d - 3 Years Ago
Hi guys, thank you all for the kind words. 

@Roberto    agreed, it would be nice to have multiple objects displayed curves, lets hope RL will make this happen
@Rogue Anime Cheers! if there is a topic you would like to be converted into a webinar please let us know
@Ari  I mentioned to RL that i did not mind having two webinars on the same day so this might happen more often, so cross your fingers
@ animagic sorry you missed the first part, if you have any questions please let me know
@justaviking i know what you mean, in some of the tutorials i did we fast forward certain repetitive  things to keep it short but it helps when you see how things are done step by step. Tell RL about this, most of my tutorials are about 40 to 50 minutes long but they ask me to shrink them to 15 to 20 max.  So for people that would like to see everything, voice out your concern to RL

I am using  Faceware for lips (i think it does a better job at capturing mine, especially since i have a goatee) and Face Live for muscles above lips,


Hi Stuckon3d,

You seem to use both system of facial capture. So you must grant some value to both. I would like to know if you share Kellytoon's opinion that Face Live is so superior to Faceware as not even being in the same league and Faceware not even being worth using (He says he doesn't use it anymore). I own Faceware {not Face Live) and I think it's not so much the hardware/software that matters as much as the user and that Faceware can do a very good job, especially if you work with remote talent.

What says you?

By andrewlargin - 2 Years Ago
Had a look at all your pics and vids on the thread.  The pics are real good and some are photorealistic, which I think is an achievement using iClone.  I'm much more interested in what iclone can do video wise and the curve editor demo is pretty fantastic.  It doesn't hit the heights of realistic, not far off though.  Can't be sure why not but its the overall blending, too much contrast between elements I think.  Having said that I am not only interested in realism, a cartoon feel can communicate stuff in different ways as it focusses the attention on certain elements or gives a different feel so don't take it as a criticism as it isn't, just a fact.  As for Ouch, fuck me that's real good.  I know its a relatively simple scene and short but I've watched it maybe 20 times and its right on the money.  Maybe I'm deluded or maybe my very minor hangover is affecting my judgement but I think that's photo realistic and the first video with a few elements in it in iclone that I have seen that achieves this.  Just looked at it again to check it was rendered in iclone and it was.  You have achieved the iclone holy grail, now all you got to do is a 90 min Hollywood blockbuster rendered in 25 mins and you will be rich and famous for ever!!!!!!!!

Looking forward to this! Thanks for posting the teaser, I almost forgot...Unsure Registered right-away! Cool
By stuckon3d - 3 Years Ago
Thank you guys, i will see if I can fit in a quick tutorial between the tutorials I'm doing for RL. One key component to remember is that having the proper material setup is just as important as  the lighting itself. If the materials do not behave like they should then no matter how good your lighting set up is it will not look correct. Lighting and surfacing work tightly hand in hand. 
This tutorial pretty much covers the methodology I use when i light.

Also there is webinar coming up where i will show this live, so if you have any questions you can ask me there as well.

Very good tutorial i enjoyed it . As you mention quality substance textures play a large part in taking your shots up to the next level of fidelity. But the GPU in your tut  is pushing up to 4GB in a still shot with no animated character in it. Its some thing people need to be realistic about what there system can do when looking at tuts on high spec systems  . Be good to have a bit more of a breakdown in terms of memory use and the cost of different lighting technics etc

Best thing any one can do IMO is save your pennys and get a 1080 gtx and subscribe to substance store  and build up a library of PBR textures ready to go . Also  8GB GPUs should be dropping in price before long and more people will be able to put the pedal to the metal with IC7 its a magnificent beast that needs feeding

It really WAS a great webinar, Chris -- I don't know if it was just your subject, or how you presented, but I think that's the best and most informative one I've ever attended or watched later (and I've seen a ton).  You clearly showed the best way to use the editor, along with hot key shortcuts and such and it just was very well put together.  Congrats on such an effort.


By stuckon3d - 2 Years Ago
@CtrlZ please accept my condolences  and thank you for the kind comment towards my work. 

@Lamias Drifting is when a sensor starts to lose track of position. The more you move away from the start position the less accurate is the distance from that start. And because of this you will never be able to land in the same spot you started unless you take the extra step/steps to make it happen. Also,  the faster the motions, the more the drift. 
Hope this helps clarify.  Smile 
By stuckon3d - 3 Years Ago

Looks quite convincing, also the quality of the render. The body mocap is ok for me!
I guess you noticed it yourself; little skin poke-through on the gloves at 00:08/00:09 and some more on the shirt inner elbow...
So better hide that body mesh BigGrin
Looking forward for more!
Any news on the webinar? Cause i really have trouble to understand what iRay does, the results are often little surprises.
Mostely in a good way, sometimes in a bad way compared to native render...

Here is an image from the opening shot of the short "Trip to Venice" .  Hope you like!  Smile  
The character was created by Tobias. And some of the models geometry tweaking done by Adolf.

Now THAT!!! is freaking AWESOME work! Beautiful scene.... I am sooooooo looking forward to the tutorial as I am in possession of tons of DAZ Scenes. Some of them too large for Iclone 6. Haven't tried them in Iclone 7 yet. You've motivated me to start experimenting a bit while I wait for your expert advice. Again... niiiiccceeee work

I missed the first twenty minutes unfortunately, but I still learned a lot. It was also nice that there was extra time after the main presentation. So, keep them coming!

the reason i use both is because  of my facial hair,  face live can't lock on to my lips where faceware can. On the other hand, face live can capture facial muscles better than faceware. however face live since there is no direct connection i dont think you can capture 60fps where faceware and the right camera can.  so they both have their strength. It all depends what you need them for. Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Cris

Awesome work!  Wonder if you are going to be up for teaming up on projects.  Have this feature script that is too expensive to shoot live.  Have a director, script supervisor and line producer standing by.  Been talking to some talent here in Hollywood for voiceover and to do head shoots (front/side) for CC 2.0

Just wondering...


Thanks dwacon, regarding your question... , pm me your skype  id and we can talk sometime during the week? , I'm currently booked for the next couple of months or so but maybe after? not sure how urgent you need people for your project. 

Cheers,

Cris

As usual, I never get alerted to these, so with no place to sign up I guess I'll wait until it comes out on YouTube (sigh).


Mike,
Here's a link to the Webinar registration page. Maybe there are still seats available.

Here is the image that we will be creating on the webinar coming soon. We will go from from pure default values to this images.

Here are some work in progress images of a set im going to use for a short. I still need to do one more pass on the textures, right now the buildings only have a solid color texture for metallic and roughness. I'm going to create a custom one for each building.

Why not just post your pictures on the forum, right in your post? The high resolution works directlySmile ...
Wonderful rendering! I have not yet had time to test the engine on complete scenes .. but ... seeing this ... it's very convincing!

Thank you Pixtim, as far as posting them here, i cant, i already reached my limit.  Sad    
 I'm trying to convince RL to expand it.  Tongue


Cheers,

Cris



Hi Cris,

Brilliant work as always. SmileCoolSmooooth

Regarding photos in posts, I know that there is a limit on attachments, but I have never heard of a limit on embedding images.

Also... as Kelleytoons note... the outdoor light is amazing. I too would love a short tutorial on that subject. Again... OUTSTANDING WORK!

My God, the results of Pro are incredible. Thanks for showing us this!

What kind of cleanup did you use?

Cheers mate. Actually there was no clean up, the only thing i did was reduce the rotation curves on certain joins to lessen the exaggeration of the gestures from the actress i use for the mocap. Smile 
  The actual mocap was that clean. The only thing you need to watch out for is drifting, which unfortunately is inherent from all inertia based capture systems.

here is a little work in progress from my upcoming scene conversion tutorial from iclone 6 to 7.

Thank you Mark.  Smile 
The fact that you can re-purpose content from previous versions and enhance them to a total new level with the new pbr and gi features, is like having new toys all over again. 
Here I added a little life to the scene.  Smile

Here is a little teaser for the upcoming webinar, Curve Editor Fun. Hope you like it. 



By Kelleytoons - 3 Years Ago
Thanks, Gerry -- I do appreciate it.

I signed up but IIRC they will allow any number to sign up because you aren't promised a place, just a chance.  It's still first come, first served, so the first 100 will get in (the last time I tried one of those I had wi-fi issues even though I had cancelled an appointment to be there, so I missed out.  Sigh).  Luckily the timeframe works for me (no tennis that evening :>Wink so I suspect I might get in okay.

The only real advantage is to be able to ask questions -- they usually post the seminar fairly quickly nowadays.  But I might well have some questions <g>.

Really nice. Look forward to an Video render with Iray because you really master lighting. Good work.
By stuckon3d - 2 Years Ago
here is a case study I am doing , of pushing iclone 7 to its limits, Using all the tools available within the ecosystem now. I started with the face mocap and tweaking, next pass will be refining the body mocap, the actress doing it was overdoing it a bit, but it was my fault i asked her for big gestures. But I should be able to tone down the motion with the curve editor.Stay tune. After that will be hand motion with Leap Motion device.  Wink

here is another image, this Zombie is from a fantastic pack by Antareus hopefully coming soon! rendered in cc3 with Iray. hope you like it.

Hi Cris,

Great work, look forward to seeing more! Per your question, in my iPad's Safari browser, link goes to Photobucket in a new tab.

Have a great day!

: D! Too much work! Not enough beer with the buddies! .... I have the same problem, except that I still have storage space! Smile
If you have a behance account with Adobe, you can post your work and easily retrieve the link (by doing "view the image on your web browser) to display it in a forum .. or you also have hubic that offers accounts Free with 25 giga (I have not tried but I suppose we should be able to share links ...)
