Hi Andy,

Here is my go at the bottle challenge. I’m fairly new to CG and the was great experience. Thank you for putting this together. I would love to get some feedback. A couple issues came that maybe you more veteran artist can help with.

  1. Is there a way to use a zdepth map in photoshop.
  2. It also appears that it isn’t calculating all of the refraction bounces any suggestion? (using Vray)

here is also a breakdown of my image

Nice challenge :slight_smile:
Here is my entry.

The newer versions of Photoshop usually include a Lens Blur filter utility. The utility typically presents a window where you can specify the layer that contains the Z-Depth information and various camera elements.

Make sure to include the Z-Depth Render Element in VRay and if you’re using OpenEXR, you may need to use the fNord Software OpenEXR plugin as the native Photoshop version doesn’t separate the EXR channels. Alternatively, you can render the various passes to separate files.

Here’s a few tutorials that might help get you on your way:

  1. It also appears that it isn’t calculating all of the refraction bounces any suggestion? (using Vray)

In your materials,

A few tricks to troubleshooting Reflection/Refraction bounce issues is to set the respective Exit Colors to some noticeable (aka obscene) color. This would help determine if the number of bounces (default usually 5) need to be increased.

In your Render Settings,

Ensure that the necessary Reflection/Refractions settings have been enabled and that bounce cut-offs aren’t set too low. If they are, the render will exit prematurely.

Hope that helps,

Cheers,

REally great entries so far. As you probably have already seen I’ve done a bit of work to the challenge. I’ve cleaned threads, merged the thread were you can download files, Tries to fix links, changed host (now all the files are hosted by cgsociety so no more broken links hopefully), reorganised final showcase (of the last 10 challenge). Also this week testing new scene files for a scene that will be also used for another mini challenge here in cgtalk. So you have time to post your final images, I think I will upload the new challenge this week
I will also give detailed feedback soon.
BTW if you have an image that you would like to submit for final showcase, please send me a private message.
Thanks in advance for your patience :wink:
Giorgio
