some of my retro raytracing stuff

A little selection of my c4d stuff.A lot of people here seem to enjoy watching that kind of stuff as much as I do. So here you have my 5cent.
Some of the scenes have been created on my 1200 and others are done in uae.
And tbh a few objects are downloaded imports from other programms but all the rendering was done in Cinema 4D v4.
Even after 20 years it's still fun to mess around with that great peace of software.

Lots of 3D modelling pictures recently... seems like it's a growing trend! Unfortunately, I lack the talent to produce such quality!

That MagicLink tool is awesome but it has some strange limitations.
If a model has too many points or surfaces it will fail.
The screen and most of the other stuff was done by me. The little knight can be found on Aminet, the floppy disks are C4D examples and I dont remember where I got the Stormtrooper.

BTW: texturing a keyboard is a pain in the butt... ^^

I've made 3d sci-fi artwork professionally, and I think that sci-fi landscape with the towers in the lava is great! was it ever used in anything?

Just the result of a boring sunday afternoon.
No real purpose at all.
Maybe I refine it a bit and use it as a wallpaper.
PerlinFX was used for the textures and the landscape is made of a few fractals. In these old Raytracing tools it is all about clever placement of the lights. No Abient Occlusion or Global Illumination.

If anyone wants the native res(1920x1080) I can reup it.

....Is how most things get started

would be a nice loading screen for an Amiga game, kinda reminds me of Tower Assault.

Inverse square falloff for the fills? If you can get away with it, it can better - mainly for speed - to avoid GI.

Some great images. My favourites are images 4 (exploding whatsit and spaceships) and 5 (twin towers in lava)

Who cares about speed? The software was desinged with a cpu with 25-50Mhz in mind and maybe 128Mb ram.And that was what I was using C4D on myself for some years.
Now that I have the equivalent of a 1Ghz 040 under the hood you can do some really crazy things like set an insane number of lights with only 1% intensity and soft sadows around the scene.

EDIT: the scene got also a treatment with the very nice darkglow and glow filter in arteffect4.Two excellent plugins for finishing a scene.They are on some AE plugin disk and in the aminet.

Very nice! I'd buy that Commodore flat screen for my A4000 if it existed!

Maybe you 3D print a frame that fits your existing monitor?

I remember the C4D guys on a 3d art forum I used to go to, probably about 12 years ago fill lighting their models with a ring of soft shadow lights to get that skylight effect... I'm sure they were all using Pentiums or something though
