A little beverage by the fire place in the evening with good book in these cold winter days before bed. Makes for a good nice rest. The ash tray was made in from Ver. 9.5 when it was release back in the day so I thought I put to use since it was one of my first projects with TC. The pipe was lofted and from inspiration of DVD movie. The lighter was imported from 3d warehouse. The tobacco is a wrap on extrude ellipse.
The bottle and stopper and the glasses where lofted with circular & hexagon profiles. Then some post editing by adding a slight vignette, lens flare, backlight at 75% and sharpen with free PhotoScape software nifty little program IMO. Just a few highlights on the construction and to share on some my methods. Except with these few with options most of it was created with TC. Thanks for the look see guys.

You did a great job on all of it W.D. The lens flare is nice touch as are the other Photoscape tweaks. Love the table reflections too.

Hi WD
Nice set, though, I would prefer to drink in the carafe had the color yellow - amber  ;) . Although some elements were taken in versions created ten years ago,  further look impressive. Have a good evening rest.

Great job, WD. Nice atmosphere, too. (I used to enjoy an occasional pipeful of Captain Black, although my usual smoke was something a lot cheaper.)

Ahhh...I feel the muscles relax all over as I look on those images! I can smell the pipe tobacco as I taste my Merlot.

Excellent, as always WD

Winston, that's some top-of-the-art work! Beautiful. Love the little tweaks, too. Subtle and significant.

Very nice indeed, though that's too posh for me - I'd just crack open a can of lager :-)

Very nice rendering for sure!   And I am a little surprised more users do not make use of TCs advanced rendering lens flare capability.

Is there setting in the drop menu that sets the location such as (x,y,z) coordinates of the lens flare or star?If so can a screen shot can be provided? If not how is the position by the end user's choice of location.With the one item in the sample screen shot it may locate it self however with multiple items in rendering will it pinpoint a desire location? With PhotoScape a separate dialogue opens when the tool command is invoke allowing the end user to position it in the desire location.I'm unable to position lens flare in location of my choice.I found no info at wiki for my desire query.I'm open for suggestions for any method!

Try this... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQJcor6vfPc

3 things to note.
1. Settings of 2 point lights (one of them is named "flare")
2. You must be in perspective mode
3. Custom Advanced Render settings named Presentation 10m_20

Movie was created using the attached *.TCW file from below.

Thanks for the feed back Dave and the video. I look it over and its simple enough. Didn't know the sphere and torus played a part in the set up !

They are used as luminances.  The only other light used is 1 OpenGL headlight.

The ring is gorgeous. I tried to get the effect of light dispersion. I used four colored  Point Ligths.  Maybe someone has another idea.
Marek
P.S. Two more attempts
