Everything flows together magnificently, my dear! You did a smashingly super successful job on this most excellent masterpiece! My hat is off to you! Many many super fine kudos and accolades from me!

Thanks so much for the kind comments! It's always fun to try something new :-)

I am highly impressed by what you have succeeded in doing here too! Great work!

Thanks so much for the comment! It was a fun experiment, although it's always kind of annoying when you spend ages working on a pose, only to realize that the scene is so dark you can't even see things like that the boot heel is precisely placed on the foot rest!! :-)

Thanks! The suits and the bike were made by the same vendor, but the names of each don't suggest that they were meant to go together -- and yet they go together so nicely! I didn't realize that would be the case until I loaded everything into the scene!

Excellent image, great motion effects. Not sure about the yellow thing.
perpetualrevision 2:11PM | Wed, 22 June 2022
Thanks! The yellow thing is one of two neon signs I put on the backdrop prop to give the impression of a city street. The blue one in the upper left is The Hole sign from that set, and the yellow one is also from that set, of a lady on her side. They're both too motion blurred to see, of course. Maybe I should've made the lady's sign green, for greater color coordination :-)

Thanks! I got the bike on one of those ridiculous sales and had no idea how I'd use it, but I love the look of futuristic bikes, so I was glad to have an outfit for V4 that matched it! (it's actually a 2nd skin with a prop helmet and shoulder thing)

reminds me of the movie Tron. done a few similar myself. yours is tops!

Thanks so much! I always love your glowy bike renders, and I was delighted to get this bike on sale so I could give it a try!

Hi, wonderful scifi render with one of my favor bike :) Great stuff! Greetings Stormrider75
perpetualrevision 2:14PM | Wed, 22 June 2022
Thanks so much for the comment! It is a cool bike, which I got recently during one of those ridiculous sales along with some other textures and add-ons for it. I haven't done many renders in the sci-fi genre, but I love the genre, so I hope to figure out how to do more!

Super cool Sci-Fi. Love the motion blur. Outfits and reflections look very cool

Mindblowing gorgeous Sci-Fi composition, amazing atmosphere and lighting, great FX, brilliant awesome render.
Magnificent Masterpiece of Finest Arts. I love it!

Thank you, Marius! This one was fun to put together. I've always admired glowy neon futuristic bikes in other people's renders, so I was glad to have the chance to try it myself!

Wonderful colors and lighting effects, it's very original... excellent !!
perpetualrevision 2:16PM | Wed, 22 June 2022
Thanks so much, madame! It was a fun challenge to figure out the lighting and motion fx!
perpetualrevision 2:19PM | Wed, 22 June 2022
Thanks so much! I love sci-fi but I'm much more comfortable rendering fantasy or fairy type scenes, so this was a good first start in the direction of the sci-fi genre. I love coflek-gnorg's Sci-Fi streets set as well as others of his in a similar vein, and I look forward to figuring out how to use them in a way that suits my preference for scenes that aren't overly serious :-)

I've never used the motion blur within Poser. It looks fantastic and the contrast in the image is great!
perpetualrevision 2:25PM | Wed, 22 June 2022
Thanks so much for the comment! Motion blur is ridiculously easy in Poser. I put off figuring it out for the longest time, but when I finally did, I was like "duh!" Assuming you've set up your scene for rendering on frame 1, all you do is go to frame 2 and move whatever items you want to appear to be in motion. Then go back to frame 1 and render (with "motion blur" checked in the render settings). It doesn't slow down the render at all, which is good b/c it takes some trial and error to figure out how much to move items. For example, on one test I had rotated the bike's tires too much, so in the render they were blurred so much they were barely visible. Imagine that the render is actually going to be of whatever's in the scene about halfway between frames 1 and 2. I've used motion blur for things like tires, roads, and propellers in the past, but this is the first time I used it to this extent, and while it may not make "photorealistic" sense, I like how it came out!

Nice one, yes it came out very good! For sure you should add this style to your tools set!
perpetualrevision 2:26PM | Wed, 22 June 2022
Thanks so much, evargas! That's very kind of you to say! I love sci-fi stuff and would definitely like to figure out how to do more of it, esp. since I have a rather large collection of prop sets in that genre! I'm kind of addicted to spaceships and other sets by Petipet, even though I have no idea how I'm going to use them :-)
gerberc 12:20PM | Wed, 22 June 2022
This is really cool! Love the glow effects which really seem to emit light, not just like high ambient values in a textures. And the motion blur effect is cool, too! Excellent work!
perpetualrevision 2:35PM | Wed, 22 June 2022
Thanks so much! Some of the glow is definitely from very high ambient values in the materials for the bike and the suits. But the glow on the street is from a low intensity inverse linear point light colored blue and positioned just to the right of the bike (in the hopes that it would generate light that appeared to be coming from under the bike).
Sometimes when I want to have something glow in a Firefly IDL render, I use seachnasaigh's method of having additional meshes, one to have the super high ambient value but not be visible in the render (so it's an emitter only) and another to create an extended aura or glow, using a material setup he shared in the forums. I've used the method quite a few times, but the only example I could find with a quick search of my gallery is Telka Journeys to Mama Ulta's Island, where I used the method on the lamp Telka is holding. Now I would probably use a point light instead of the emitter, but it's an interesting concept to play with!

A pride for any company above Pixar and definitely an amazing Sci-Fi movie scene or a mindblowing movie cover.
Done in Poser just makes dozens time magnitude order pride. Outstanding creativity and top-notch skills, obviously.
Truly impressive, most impressive magic.

Thank you for sharing! I used that Yamaki Bike for a science heroine sometime ago at the other site (See the NightFall comic). It looks a LOT better here. Thank you for sharing! =)
