Robin # 3b: Maccina

v00: David

Initiated by: David. Date: May 2005.
Motto: None.
Bryce Source File Size: 2.7 MB


v01: Horo

Horo changed the material on the bow to create transparent holes, placed two sticks through the holes, added the spheres on the sticks and placed a semi transparent cone with a light in it in the middle.
Bryce Source File Size: 2.9 MB.


v01 alternate: Horo

Alternate, i.e. simpler, lighting. This thread was not followed.
Bryce Source File Size: 2.9 MB.


v01 Anaglyph: Horo

An anaglyph to check on the correct placing of the sticks through the holes.
Bryce Source File Size: 2.9 MB.


v02: David

David made the spheres at the end of the sticks partly transparent and applied an electric spark like material to some of them. The floor was made partly reflecting to show shadow and reflection when illuminated with the changed lighting. The colour of the material on the bow shaped construct was changed as was the material on the cone and the light inside it altered.

v03: Horo

Horo made all spheres at the ends of the sticks similar, re-aligned them, created a gaussian or bell shaped terrain as a mirror and set the composition inside. The picture format was changed from landscape to portrait and rendered with the soft reflection option activated.
Bryce Source File Size: 1.7 MB.


v03 alternate: Horo

Same setup as v03 but rendered without soft reflections. It becomes very difficult for the observer to determine what is real and what is mirrored. This thread was not followed.
Bryce Source File Size: 1.7 MB.


v04: David

David altered the material of the bell shaped mirror, added another stick and spheres with the same material that get a sort of shadow in form of coloured tori. Lighting was changed by introducing a ring of 72 radial, coloured lights with coloured shadows.
Bryce Source File Size: 2.2 MB.


v05: Horo

Horo made a pit in the bell shaped floor, put a light and 5 orbs in it. A hovering ring with 4 orbs was put in orbit of a small orb at right.
From here onwards, the picture deviates considerably from the original setup. We decided therefore, to continue with another thread.
Bryce Source File Size: 2.5 MB (delta 1.2 MB).


v05-01: David

David changed lighting and applied DOF.
Bryce Source File Size: 2.4 MB.


v05-02: Horo

Horo moved sun to change the position of the shadows and moved camera to center the objects. The black pit became a very faint glow.

A «maccina» is just a machine. A strange one here. Name giving is not always simple. «Cone and sizzling Spheres» would fit as well. Well …
