What you can achieve...

This is a short, quite easy guide which learns you how to create junglepictures with a thick humid air etc.
This sort of pic can be a very hard to create but using this method, it's no problem. I created it after seeing a picture by Deadhead *Amazon*.
The picture above pretty much shows what you can achieve using the technique :)

Your tutorial got me to finally jump in (to the jungle) and to try bathing things in light. I'm still not sure about setting the alpha plane but my results were more than satisfactory and I learned a lot. Thanks.

Thomas, I love your work, but your tutorials coud be improved a bit by tying your words more closely witht the images, You made a pretty big jump there to the almost finished image without much explaination about how you created the unusual twisted palm. In your next tutorial try to put yourself in our shoes trying to understand. -P- P Plantec

Thank you so much for the awesome tutorial! It was very easy to follow and it still left lots of room for personal touches. I love how easy it was to do. You explained it very well, I've only been using vue 5 infinite for about 5 days now and was very pleased with the results of this tut. It was also my first time to use an alpha plane. Thanks again! I'm adding the finished pic to my gallery if you want to check it out. samo530

Great tutorial. Thanks Thomas! I'm just learning Vue, and learned how to use some features I was unfamiliar with through your tutorial. I love the atmospheric effect you created in this scene!

Hi Thomas, thank you for this tutorial! It was very helpful to me especially with the alpha plane and the spotlight. Clever way to get those nice light rays.

Hi Thomas I am a new user on Renderosity and a new user of Vue and Poser. Yours is the first tutorial I selected on the site because of my interest in vegetation and light. I found it very helpful and easy to understand. I am eager to try your suggestions. Please keep 'em coming! Bikini Hut

It's a wonderful tutorial. I've been "learning by experience" and it is painfully slow! Always wondered how to get those light rays (lol) Many thanks for a very clear and helpful tut :)

An inspirational tutorial, thanks! I'm imagining all kinds of jungles and deep, misty woodlands now. :-) Very useful!

azgar  2:19AM Fri, 17 October 2003

Whoa!!! What seemed to be a result of an exhaustive session, is so simple!! GREAT! Thank You. By the way, I'm not sure this question can be placed here...but still.. I've downloaded the demo of Vue4. It doesn't work. My platform is win2000. As soon as I select the environment, The software automatically closes. Kindly help. Thank You.

Thanks for the info. I love learning what others have discovered. It really help cut down the learning curve and helps me create more art.

MRNot  12:11PM Tue, 14 October 2003

Since I use Bryce rather than Vue, I can only surmise, but I'm sure I can at least partially transcribe your techniques for use there, and it will most definitely prove helpful. Can't wait to play around with the tutorial in earnest.

cockjuice  2:09AM Tue, 14 October 2003

I know you've had this one up for quite some time. You'll be having some traffic across the tut with it on the front page now, for a few days anyways. I love the tut and think it's an inspiration as well as educational. Everything a tut should be. Thanks so much, it's brilliant, as you are with this program. I've seen the tut before and thought I commented, now I'm sure I commented. Rock on my friend. Superbly done!
