800$ without transportation, lodging and meals! Well, I think they have chosen the opposite way from Renderosity: if you want good tutorials and lessons you have to pay a very high price!!! Where is the happiness to give knowledge to others? Where is generosity? Where are the good values that make us better in our feelings or in CG Art? It would have been so profitable for us if it was free, on the web, here! This Bryce Camp is not for me! And I regret this. I have so much to learn. Bad. Sad. Boooooh!
Spear - I hear its about 500 to 700 dollars It sounds like it's going to be a blast, I know they had fun at Ojai. I would like to go too, but my expenses are limited as of now :| Anyways, great city to host it in. Sure it's going to be really nice :)
Its $800 not including lodging or meals. Personally, I'm applying (without much hope) to my state arts council for a Director's Grant-in-Aid, which is specifically designed to help artists go to seminars and other occasional learning opportunities. You may want to check your state government web page and see if they have something similar.
I have Bryce4 and have NO idea how to use it.I also have Poser4(Am getting very good at that,though I still have ALOT to learn)and I also have Canoma(no idea there either!LOL),SO A Workshop for those would be a GREAT $$$ maker for the teachers and Learning tool for us newbies,so Everyone wins!How much is the Bryce workshop?I want to go!
I have just had an interesting idea... Well, listen and see if it's so interesting! You, Jack or any member of Renderosity could go there, paid by Renderosity, learn all these good techniques, then work on a very special task: transmit to every members all that you have seen! This way, one of you would spend a super stage there, in a beautifull landscape, and everyone could make a lot of progresses with Bryce! What do you think of that? Isn't it a good idea, hum?
BryceCamp 2000 - Update (8/21/00) As of Friday 8/25/00 only 15 openings are left. Bryce Camp offers some 24 hours of class/workshops and 24 hours of open lab sessions where the instructors not only show and tell you the ins and outs of Bryce, but give one-on-one hands-on instruction and answers to the hows and whys of Bryce and what it does (You'll even learn things about Bryce and tricks within Bryce you never knew existed). If you want the best instruction and deep knowledge of all things Bryce, then Bryce Camp will help in your pursuits of really knowing the program, and making you a better Bryce image maker. Besides you get to spend 4-days with a bunch of Bryce-heads.
$800, no way,, i've been using bryce since it came out.. within a year i mastered the program.. if your a pro at it already, why go? if your a newibe with money to burn then go. i know if i went, the first thingi would want to learn is something i don't already know. and so far i know my B
Here is an idea for those who can't (or won't) spend the $800. Join AOL for $10 a month - get 9 hours a week of art chats - 1.5 of Bryce/Poser + message boards, libraries and one can contact accomplished users of POV-RAY, LW, Hash, ex-Meta products, etc.
I Cant Believe anybody would pay such an outrageous price. This is not about learning this is about making a handfull of suits a bunch of money wake up and smell the coffee all you need is patience talent and dedication and a bunch of books no way will i go id rather spend my money on upgrades as for tutorials renderosity is where i go to school
Go if you can. I went to the first two and gained incredible insights, plus made some great new friends. No "suits" at all, just real, working artists, so don't knock'em if ya ain't been there. It hasn't been easy pinching the pennies together for airfare and tuition, but I know it'll be well worth it in terms of new knowledge gained, both from the instuctors AND my fellow "camper
UPDATE - 10/8/00 Hello All ! Bryce Camp is just a few weeks away ! Just wanted to say that we've had a camper who has a schedule conflict - SO we have one spot available !

Hmmmm of course it would be interesting to attend and most of those running the thing i have met online..and are very nice people , but i must agree with the price tag being to hi, most of us are to poor to think of ever going have familys that need to be fed etc, still have fun if your going, again i wish i was in your shoes..Divorce isnt kind to the checking account , see if maybe it can be held at a more limited expense on the east coast somewhere and ill give it a go..otherwise whoever goes write some good tuts when your done....Later...Shadow
