I recently got a e-on software product, Vue, and here is my first creation with it...



It took me 1:20 (1 hour, and 20 minutes) to create this, many because I messed up after 30 minutes.

(may be easier to see the sun if against a dark backround)

i'm a e-on vue user myself, Vue6 Infinite. It's very very good if a little buggy still and the interface with poser 7 is very useful at times. I love it.

Should an Oasis have rippling water? Last I checked an oasis was just a lake / water mass in the middle of a desert rather than connected to any ocean or moving water.

Perhaps it's an unusually windy desert biggrin

Nice job SilverDragon! the sand could use a little more texture, maybe; but overall, quite impressive. I've not used Vue myself, but I've heard it's pretty useful.

Not really, it's attention to detail like that that 'sells' a shot. Also, Hybrid's comment isn't related directly to SilverDragon's technical 3D skills, rather than the logical appearance of the scene. If he'd criticised the technical side, then I agree it would have been a bit over critical. smile

Good first attempt - did you create the entire image, or does it use 'stock' elements?

Well it was 11:45PM, so I just said 'forget it'.

Well you can choose stock images, such as the trees and ferns, but I had to build up the ground and place the water.

Although isn't an oasis caused by an underground stream (much like a spring), if so then they could cause ripples in the oasis depending on the strength of the stream and depth of the oasis.Now i have a question regarding vue, can you animate it (ie trees blowing in the wind) or is it purely for static images?

It can animate, make stills, and can be used for film (They used a Vue product in the creation of Pirates of the Carribian 2, one of the main reasons I got it)

HERE is an example of how well it can animate... Although it is for Vue 5 Infinate, and I have Vue 6 ESprit...

Cool image, great first attempt biggrin I remember I bought some Vue product a while ago, when they were selling a slightly older version for about 60$, I believe. I still havn't made any good use of it, but there sure is potential in the program.

Today I created a quick animation (took an hour to figure out and make it). It is 5 seconds, and the camera goes on crack for a second, but here it is...

Youtube Version - came out looking really crappy (youtube quality)

Download - If you want to see the great quality you'll need to download it, it is only 1.5 MB.

If there's wind, the water would ripple. Water doesn't have to be flowing to have ripples.

That doesn't make this a quality image, however. Reminds me of something from an UNDER CONSTRUCTION! website like 10 years ago.

Well I played with my idea for awhile, and came out with a 2D looking waterfall. Esprit is un-able to make moving, animated, waterfalls... I bet the Infinet or Xstream can though.

But what about this: http://www.cornucopia3d.com/purchase.php?item_id=1168? It says it will work with easel.

No, I may buy it, though, just to see how it was done. I can't use it because my waterfall will be much bigger. Of course if I'm going to buy Easel anyways, I might as well just join the forum and ask my question there.
