Winter Coming

Post#1 by Krikor » 25 Nov 2020, 21:50


I don't seem to be having any luck with the scripts for creating Snow. :tantrum:

This one works! But the effect is not quite what I expected. Possibly I don't know how to adjust the script correctly. :hammer_head:

On the other hand, I've never seen real snow either, so I can't be too picky with myself.

I'll try to make this snow manually, there must be good tutorials out there.

Good job, Krikor :2_Thumbs:
What a pity the script doesn't work so well for you. I haven't tried it yet.
Enough tutorials about falling snow but no animated falling snow.
At least I haven't found them.

Have you never seen real snowfall ?
It can be magical ... now and then.

I think that the problem is the "speed": the snow is falling much slower (so it becomes "magic", otherwise it's "nervy").
Likely the interval of time among the various layers has to be changed.

I agree with Dinasset. I think your image is very nice. I also would have the snow falling more slowly as it is relaxing.

Ella, I even found a tutorial by Gimper, but it wasn't about animated snow.
Over here, a subtropical region, the climate never reaches the conditions that could produce snow. Perhaps at the top of some mountains, it would still be more of a frost than snow itself.

Dinasset and Pat, I believe you have defined the situation well. But using the Animated Snow plugin I did not get good results.
I tried to change the speed, but I didn't find any good adjustments.

Fortunately yesterday I managed to use the Falling Snow or Other Brush plugin, and even with the standard sets I got something more satisfying.

Thx Gimpers!

Wow, well done, Krikor :gimp_clap:
This is more like real, when it snows thick flakes.
It really gives a magical feeling standing in the silence between all those soft flakes whirling down.
An (animated) image, a film ... it gives an impression. Can never replace the real thing.
Like I only can imagine what it must be like, to live in a subtropical climate.

Very good! A calming scene to watch, quite relaxing. The snowflakes are nicely realistic.

The second version of the script is amazing!
There are a lot of people here really good at programming.
