Autumn Mist by mayaslash Autumn Mist by mayaslash
Vue and Photoshop

Landscapes in Vue are my first love, and I realized that recently I haven't made any, so I decided that it's time to make another one. I hope you like it.

Comments are appreciated! :D

Amazing lighting and depth, many question how you got that atmosphere and I was too, did you use the Volumetric atmosphere or still a spectral one? if it's volumetric you might want to state that since these days people only use spectral which is understandble for "realism" but for small-scale scenes like forest floors and such - the volumetric atmosphere adds great depth to it like here :wow:

Thank you so much!

Yes, that's a volumetric atmosphere. They make terrible skies, in my opinion, but they're great for forest scenes in order to add depth.

The atmosphere aside, I also saved the z-depth map of the image and added it with PS, that added further depth.

Lol, yeah - the volumetric atmosphere was revolutionary at some time, occasionally though you get days where clouds are rather flat that could be easily simulated with the volumetric atmosphere, but I agree they're best saved for scenes with little visible sky and they render faster too :)

Simply breathtaking!

I thought I'd not seen it before - you've not added this one to VuePort yet.

This is so beautiful and relaxing! Love this work! Love it, love it, love it!
Already a +fav.

Could you explain a little of the process to achieve this result?

Sure. Which part are you interested in? The ecosystems or the atmosphere?

Specially the ecosystems, but if you could, a little bit of the atmosphere also would be great :)

Most of whatever I know about vue I've learned from geekatplay's [link] tutorials.

Anyway, ecosystems. I always create several layers in the material editor. Notice that when you click on a material and make it an ecosystem, another layer of plain material appears underneath it in the material tree. By clicking on that other layer and making it an ecosystem another will appear again. On each of these layers I load the different plants - the grass, the shrubs, the trees, usually in the same order you can find them in nature as well - from bottom to top. That allows you to have more control on the different layers of plants.

Turning on the dynamic ecosystem (which means Vue will be calculating only what the camera can see) for the grass, especially, reduces render time. I avoid turning it on for larger objects, such as trees, because they appear in different places with each render and if your preview looked good, your final render might suddenly have tree right in front your camera.

About the atmosphere, most of the time I just choose something which is already made for Vue and then start tweaking it until I am pleased with the end result - colour of haze, sky, turning on the GR, position of the sun, clouds, etc.etc. I don't have a specific system, just work on a trial and error basis.

I hope this is at least a little helpful. If you have any other questions, I'll be happy to answer them. :D

I understand. I already learn something, that dynamic ecosystem. That's probably why things with many polys took me so long to render (in my times in VUE (older computer and about two years)).
I'm sure that I can apply some of this knowledge to other 3D programs :)

And another thing, what have you done in Photoshop?

Thank you very much for the reply :heart:

Stuff with many polys will always take longer to render, but dynamic eco makes things a little better.

You mean, as post-work or PS-only images? I have only two experimental PS-only images

As for postwork in vue images, it's mostly blurring noise effect in clouds, fixing some gaps in the ecosystems, colour and contrast correction, minor things, really.

You're welcome.

Thank you for the reply, once again :) That's what I guessed, some image adjustments to make your works even better ;)

I'll check your works out and then I'll tell you what I think about them ;)

Fantastic atmosphere (I freely admit to sucking at fog and haze effects) and really good composition. Excellent!

I suck at them too. I manage to make them decent after days of trial and error, and most of the time I don't have the patience for it.

Trial and error works for me! You can always save good materials and stuff for later use which ends up saving a lot of time.

*nods* That's exactly what happens, most of the time. Even if the final result is unsatisfying as an image, you learn something in the process of making it and you end up with new atmospheres, materials, ecosystems. Although I almost always create my ecosystems from scratch for each individual image. My favourite trees are the ash and the alder - they seem to have the prettiest leaves.
