I'm going to be doing a short series of videos where I'll be exploring this massive yacht - and the Girls and I invite you to join us! I'll show a few of my techniques and workflow. In this first one, I'll show how I parent a camera, and how I determine where to place figures, objects or lights in a large scene.
You can see the video here.
This is something new I'm trying out, using a free, open source screen recorder called OBS Studio. It does a really good job, and is pretty easy to use. You can check out Jay's tutorial on it HERE.
I'm working on the next page in the story, and hope to have it posted soon.
Thanks so much for all your visits, comments and support! I appreciate it more than you know!

I really enjoyed your video, Rod...but all I can is my little, sorry computer would explode it I went into a scene like that yacht :) Thanks for spending the time to put it together to share your workflow...See you finally got her into a dress--she looks great in that room (in boat jargon, it's a saloon-pronounced salon).
Dang this yacht is the bomb of detailed products my friend, love your video, I got half way through before my battery says recharge! Got through ten minutes, and wow highly impressive ship, love the instructions you have on parenting I do some but lack the knowledge you have on it.
Might get that ship someday, when in my and Tina's budget. Me I want that pillow first.
Greatly enjoyed what I saw so far Rod. BTW you have a great voice. U don't want to hear mine.
Poser 9 has a set with an office that's has mega rooms, and props for each, I've had trouble seeking other parts of the prop, and there is many, not quite the cool details of that ship though. Bitchin cool prop, video and learning my friend. Thanks will keep it for future reference if I get the ship.
Fabulous interior Rod. The girls really have some fabulous place to work and play :). This is like a mobile HQ ! I will get to the video a little later. Need to head for work soon. Looks like you have been fully utilizing the power of the RTX 2080ti. Btw. I have 5 of them ! Waiting for Octane to enable the real time raytracing cores. Once that happens my render times should be in seconds or single digit minutes instead of the double digit minutes to hours. They have said the render speed might improve to 25 times !
Ah, but not this one, Doc! T.N.A. is an environmentally responsible organization. It's been specially modified to run on methane and waste gas - basically it runs on poop and garbage. I've been told I'm full of it, so a monthly visit should keep it fueled up no problem! 😁😆🤣😜
Thanks for the marvelous tour. For this Daz User, I am totally blown away by the enormous amount of features and properties Poser's lights have. While I'm at it, throw in a good dollop of jealous. (I use 'dollop' around 3-4 times a year. That was the first for 2019). And what was Betty thinking? She's on a yacht! What could be more appropriate than a towel dress ?? Cutting edge, Rod. Cutting edge!
WOW! Fantastic job, Rod! I got half way through the video before it hung. But that didn't bother me so much because I really enjoyed seeing you work and your hands occasionally showing. At this point in your development all I can say is you beat a lot of professional computer design folks. My father was a naval architect. I'm looking forward to more of your yacht images. This image is SO good it could be taken for a photo. Keep up the good work! :-)
It was fun watching the video! There are just enough Blender remnants floating around in my brain that I wasn’t totally lost. I wonder about scale, but if you answer my question here, I’ll never see it. Maybe we can talk about it when I see you. Sometimes your models seem a little too tall for a scene (although I just attribute that to you maybe liking tall girls), but Betty looks like a giant in that room! The bridge scene looked good, scale wise, but in the lounge Betty is wearing something approaching 7” heels, and is probably eight feet tall. Does the scale of the yacht model change from floor to floor, or one area to another? Just an enquiring mind question. Obviously, I don’t NEED this information! LOL!
Betty is a pretty tall girl, plus the fact she's in some really tall heels, as you noticed. Part of it may be the fact that the camera's focal length is about 21mm. Poser's cameras are pretty close to what you'd see with a 35mm SLR so that may have an effect as well. Especially when you try to put a camera in a room, unless the room is really large. I'm still playing with some camera tricks, and of course more videos. We can do some brainstorming when you and Bill get back in town!
I'll catch up on your last several uploads while I'm here...I read Tara's comment, and I can see why she says that: But to me it's more (as you say) a function of the camera and lens and focal length (virtually, not physically). Everything seems in order here...but I can see why someone might think she's too tall....In any case, I already commented on the video, and loved it, esp the thought process you go through to make all these complex scenes. And this "shot" is quite spacious and open; and, for me, dramatic. Dramatic because of the open space and how the chairs and tables create all these vectors and lines. And the beautiful way the background wall creates an 'embrace', the arching lines the embrace everything in front of them. It's really compelling full size. And Betty is imposing, and dressed and accessorized beautifully (ie, shoes and string belt), and looks terrific in this room. The light atop is a powerful draw too. Really well done, Rod. A really compelling visual, and a great backdrop for Betty, who looks like she's waiting for someone to arrive, and she looks terrific.
