    Rendering like Blakbird

    Thanks very much deraven!! I'm downloading GIMP and am gonna give it a try. I found "transparency under the layer tab, does anyone know what to do with it? This kind of software is brand new to me.

    Rendering like Blakbird

    Am I finding this in POV-RAY? I did get the Blakbird tutorial out of Hispabrick Magazine.
  3. Does anyone know how to make the renders that Blakbird used to make. I'm talking about the ones that (I'm guessing) had an overlay of two images, one would be "see through" or translucent. Does anyone know how to make the "translucent" ones? Blakbird replies to technicbasics on Posted April 14, 2015 in page 2 of I use POV-Ray. Looks like your lights are the problem. Read the whole series of articles I wrote for Hispabrick magazine to see what I do. Does anyone know what issues these were in?
  4. Philo, that is a good idea. I thought of it too. But, how do you go about creating the arrow or circle with a transparent background? Could someone with the know how please just put this ability to add an arrow or circle into the software, like LPUB3D or LDCAD.

    Gearbox collection thread

    This really is a great mechanism. I will remember it when I design an automobile. THANKS FOR SHARING.

    [MOC] Aston Martin Vulcan

    This is a MOC with a lot of functions! Nice use of Stud.io! Maybe next time you could use a part outline color that is not used, such as orange or bright green.
  8. Snipe have you finished your 8880 yet? Jeeves do you have anymore information? http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/270408 ? Anybody else?? If anyone can make something like these, I'd be willing to do the building instructions.

    Tribute Model 8880 Evo

    I am now learning to bend dynamic parts. Attika, Could you supply pictures of the 8880 EVO chassis? I'm working with VOID_S' file but, I would like the result to be exactly like you created it (if possible). I have admired this MOC for a long time. You packed a lot of features into it.

    Studio 2.0.1_16 Download

    I have the beta version in Downloads on my 64 bit windows 10 PC. Does that mean there is no MAC version in it.
  11. Folks, Its a nice program and I like it, but it needs many improvements. I'm still looking for back page, the ability to change assembly scale, part anotations, rotation icon, the multi step layout is limited too. I do not like the look of the assembly images. Is there a way to change those outlines?. Coverting to callout is not working well. If you've found any of these, please speak up. The BOM uses too many pages. What about a back page with Lego disclaimers and copywrite? Instructions that I make using Stud.io turn out to have twice as many pages as LPUB3D. It's very difficult to scroll through the parts to find what you want. How about some simple arrow up or arrow down buttons! I find this is hard to use for building.
  12. Stud.io Instruction Maker may be better than Blueprint and LDD, but it is not the go to dominant design software for digital LEGO creations. It is definitely not a replacement for the LDRAW group of software. I do a lot of Technic models and I don't see any advantages yet with Stud.io 2 except the Photo Realistic rendering which is absolutely fantastic.
  13. OOH! This IS a thrill. I'm so happy with this , I don't have to set up a studio anymore. These renders are GREAT!

    [HELP] Which Technic Set Should I Buy?

    You might want to consider 9398 Crawler. It's fun to play with as well as build. It has has 2 large steering ball joints, 4 portal axles, 2 large motors and 1 servo motor amonst it's parts. Plus 4 shock absorbers with extra hard springs.
  15. I guess I need a little more direction on how that is done. Thanks I figured this out myself. You have to save it on your PC first without the ".txt" on the end of the file name.
