Mandelbulb 3D Tutorial 5: Tips and Tricks
From time to time, I still manage to stumble across new 'tricks' in MB3D. I'm sure some of the following tips are known to others, but for those that haven't discovered them, I hope they will help in the future. Some of these were discovered accidentally, others were found through desperation while trying to solve problems.
The first one is very simple and just a little bit of a time saver.
Loading Diff maps ~
This was discovered by accident. It may be well know for all I know, but I just recently discovered it. In the light panel under the Global light tab, there is a box you select to load a diffuse map (Diff map). This is used to color your image in different ways, such as making it look like the structures surface is textured. Normally you simply select the box (Use a map for the diffuse color) and the number one map in your folder loads. If you want to change a map, you just scroll with the up\down arrows to a different image number or input a number if you know which map n

OMG> With abstract brush strokes and loads of squarish blocks of colour, the composition of this traffic scene is super unique, bold, bright and colourful. The contrasts of the bright roads and the dark night above is also really stunning,

IF you have to look critically for mistakes. the lights on the trees, can be a bit bright, for a lamp post. and the light above it is red, and then the light in the trees makes it look like it's a stadium's lights shining through the leaves.

The amount of colours used are also really wow,, the glistening of the roads, the way the scene is laid out, is beyond stunning. It feels like the streets are alive, and the cars are behaving like humans within a system.

All the different elements come together, also looks a bit like a season is changing, with the elements in the air/ leaves from the trees being distributed through to the world.

Love it ∞ ♥
