Those were the Learning Editions with NonCommercial Licenses only!

This is the newest, Bryce 7 Pro.

As well as Hexagon, a great 3D Modeling program, and even Daz Studio Pro, a specialized rendering program that works with Bryce and can be very useful   afro

All in all, it's hundreds of dollars worth of free stuff, and well worth having!

I mentioned it in a few places when talking about 3D Meshes, Voxel Stacks, and the like.  It's only for the month of February, so just get it!!

You'll be glad you did   embarrass

Yes, you'll need to register an account at Daz, but that's a small price for what you get!

Check out e-on software's Vue for even more fantastic texture/landscape/tree generators. Bryce is a bit dated now.

Vue 10 Pioneer is free even, you can buy plug-ins which extend the program's features with stuff like animation, external rendering (rendernodes), plant editors, etc...

One can also purchase the Vue Artist versions (Esprit, Studio, Complete) or the very expensive Vue Xstream.

bryce was one of the coolest programs in the early days, 'cause it was developped by the legendary kai krause. unfortunately he sold it after release 3.

wow, i'll definitely have a look at this. vue's eco-system is fantastic. you can create completely afforrested landscapes with a few clicks and without overwhelming your memory with millions of polygons, as it automatically decreases the complexity of the meshes related to the distance to camera.

Daz did OK by Bryce.

Version 7 Pro has all sorts of new stuff like instancing, surface replicators, and other features I only read about in their forum.  (I have to start finding them now!)

I Love it's render engine, even if it is very slow.  And it's materials settings are fun to play with.

I did this in Bryce:



It's not a fractal, but it shows how fun Bryce can be!

I'll have to dig around and find an old image, or make a fresh Bryce Fractal render, just for this thread   afro

Thanks  cheesy

Only problem now is figuring out what wine to serve with it...

Anyway, for those wanting to use Fractals in Bryce, here's a tutorial I found :  http://www.sharecg.com/v/22751/tutorial/Apophysis-and-Bryce-Tutorial

It talks about Apophysis, but any image works.  Even images of my Fiancee!

Thanks a bunch Darkbeam,

I've tried messing with DAZ a couple times now, and it's initially pretty confusing. Love the meat fish up there. ha! Looks like they gave me serial numbers for the programs as well. Yay! I feel the same as Madman - where is the time to figure them all out!  cheesy

Don't worry, Daz has forums for each product, and they are full of tutorials and helpful people who can answer questions!

I'm there a lot too, but I mostly pester them for Cow models and renders   afro

Plus, I use Carrara more than any of their other apps, so these three are semi-new to me  (I had older versions).

Maybe I'll see some of you over there!
