  1. My first shot using Redshift. It looks a bit CG, so any suggestions for improvement gratefully received. regards, David docking-2.mp4
  2. interface colour for tab text?

    regnas, Many thanks! This is your good deed for the year...... :-) best regards, David
  3. Simple question: I want to change the colour of the text in interface tabs to a lighter colour, but I can't identify the name of that element in the interface colours prefs list. Can any kind soul enlighten me? See attached screenshot.
  4. @nervThe brilliance never stops.... Really like the black pyramid!
  5. I bought a 2012 Mac Pro with upgraded motherboard to 3.46 GHz and an Nvidia titan X. It's working just fine with Redshift. I LOOOOOOOVE the IPR. Therefore, going this route is a viable Mac option for GPU rendering. Plus, you don't need to buy a boatload of PC software to replace your Mac software.
  6. @nervcan't see where env shader applied. Solved....... it's applied in the render settings.... so why are there slots in the portal lights and in the camera? Maybe I should take up knitting instead...
  7. @nerv, Super!!! cheers, David
  8. @nerv, thanks for the pointer. i'll review his tutorials, and try to avoid pestering you or the forums! cheers, David
  9. @nerv, i'm a retired nuclear physicist with instructional design skills, so I'm planning to write a beginners' guide to RS as I learn. The problem with the RS documentation is that it lists the buttons and ignores (mostly) processes and tasks (which are what users need to understand). It's clear you are already a whizkid way beyond the basics, so.... If I promise not to be a pest, can I ask you for clarification of beginners' tasks (like setting up interior scenes, as you've already clarified above, or creating volumetric lighting FX)? I'll be asking this question also on the RS forum, so I can spread my questions amongst the maximum number of people willing to assist. What say ye? cheers, David
  10. @nerv, Terrific! Many thanks for enlightening us!!, cheers. David
  11. @nerv, Thanks for trying it out and, especially for clarifying about the env shader. I had tried portal lights with the dome light and got excess noise, so I deleted them. i'll study your updated file to learn more. cheers, David
  12. @nerv, can you share the secrets of how you created the sparking cube? The effect is striking. cheers, David
  13. @nerv, no I posted a mocked-up version, as the original was a proprietary model.
