Almost a decade since I first created this chess set and column in Raydream, they are finally taking on the realistic qualities I originally envisioned. A re-do of my second posting ever here at Rosity, but making use of the visual power of Vue 6. The only changes I made from the original are the lighting and atmosphere. Everything else is exactly the same. What a difference a couple of upgrades can make. :-)
Original Vue scene created in Vue 4 back in 2003: Glass Chess Set
This one in Vue6 on a Mac; no content postwork.
Only rendered in preview (oversized). I'm sure final would be even better, but I don't have the cpu time available.
Thanks to all who have viewed my work through the years.

Nice image. Interesting point about how the technology has developed and improved over the years. Anyone remember 3D on the Amiga? Things have come a long way since that red chequered bouncing ball. :-) Just look at those lights and reflections: gorgeous.
Oh! Knight :-) A stunningly beautiful creation!! Incredible work!! Light, shadows and reflections are truly ashtonishing!!! You know I don't know how you do it!! You do know how beautiful I think this work is :-) Makes my heart sing to see you posting again....Gentle hugs for all. Diane.
