Hi, folks, it's a long time since my last post.
That is merely because there was nothing new to show. Building new houses in Holland is becoming something of the past.
Architects, constructors, builders and architectural renderers are having a hard time.
This is a model I just invented to keep practice of Turbocad, Sketchup and Vue.
Hope you like it.

Fantastic Render! Could you tell me a bit more about vue, is it mostly for landscape work? The building trades have been hit hard here for some time as well, but there are signs of improvement.

Superb Render.
I too would be interested in more info about Vue.

Thanks my friends for your nice reactions.
As Vue 7.5 is concerned: It is primarily a Rendering Software with extensive landscaping possibilities. A funny item is the socalled Ecopainter, which lets you paint sets of treess or plants where you want them. You can erase or rescale them and influence their color.
Vue comes with libraries of furnishing, plants, cars,etc. All ready to use 3D objects, and users create other plug-ins that can be bought for very moderate prices.
It renders pretty fast, but that depends on the used settings.
This seems a written commercial, and I don't inteend to make that impression, but I am rather happy with it.
Together with TurboCad, SketchUp and Photoshop I see them as wonderful tools.
And, yes Andy, I cannot help it to get some movement in the sky with some birds!

Nice Job Rob.....

I would think that TC would be more than capable of this now......External environments are much easier to control than interior ones...

I have tried Vue.... but I did find curved surfaces were excessively faceted on import.

Thanks, Henry, Darrel and Brad.
It is fine to hear your reactions and I still feel part of the TurboCad family.
I saw on the Gallery that the rendering possibilities of the recent versions of TurboCad have increased immensely.
For me (still working with a much older version that suits my needs very well) my working procedure is sometging I grew accustomed to and at my age I do not like to make changes in a routine that works well for me..
I hhope you all are well and that spring in the USA is as nice as it is here.

Thanks Rob for sharing, your work is inspiring to say the least. I also enjoyed the birds and especially the cobbler stone street. GREAT WORK!!! I am still just learning and someday hope to be able to accomplish something as nice at this. Carroll

Sorry to hear that things have been quiet, work-wise.

Thanks Don and Carrol, for your nice comments.
It is a strange situation to fall from working weeks of 7 days of 12 hours to a complete stand still.
I started to forget how I used to do things, so I needed to make a few projects for myself, just to stay in practice.
I must say I really eenjoyed doing this after such a long time.

Rob,

I've always admired your renderings and this is no exception.  I'm a 67 old cabinetmaker employed by a Construction Company in Victoria BC Canada. Through my career there have been good times and bad....right now things are looking good here and hopefully everything will change to the better for you soon.

Good luck Rob

Rob, I always enjoy your work and concept that you present.  How does Vue compare to Bryce 7?

Hope work picks up.

Thanks Don and Pat for your friendly words.
Surely one day this crisis will blow over and at 74 most people would have retired, but I love my work and I never heard of painters, musicians or illustrators retiring. You simply cannot stop doing the work you like.
I have some knowlege of older versions of Brice, and the first impression I had starting with Vue was that the idea was completely copied from Brice.
However the recent versions of Vue go much further than Brice as I remember it. But as I said, I do not know Brice 7 to make an good comparison.

I have Bryce 7 Pro......and some of you may be interested to know that Daz are offering Bryce 7 Pro and two other packages for FREE!! for a limited time period!!

http://www.daz3d.com/i/3d/free-3d-software-overview?home_i_btn=start

I have played with Bryce and it is a nice package...... not had much luck in importing files as 3ds's and some other formats....could be to do with Blocks... whether it is a TC issue or the Bryce import I am not sure....

It does seem that as long as you register and agree to receive the news letter you can download Bryce 7 Pro for free.

Then you can spend an absolute fortune on models and model parts.

Bryce 7 pro is 32bit.

Daz Studio 4 Pro is also offered free and is 64bit.
I'm downloading this, may be useful at some point.
