SPACE MARINE-PIXELBER TEST render from Paolo Lamanna on Vimeo.

Spotted this amazing work by Paolo Lamanna utilizing PixelBerg and had to share it. Excellent work Paolo. Considering i have not yet added a dedicated skin shader the face looks pretty good.

PIXELBERG USER WORK


Spotted this and thought others may be interested.


Cool example of pixelberg in use by the very talented Holger Biebrach. be sure to check out his you tube channel for lots of other C4D related goodness.

I noticed that on the video he is switching between different skys which is a bit awkward but rest assured that is on the todo list to allow easier selecting/switching of the current sky.

PIXELBERG UPDATE RELEASE 1.5 b BUG FIX

PixelBerg 1.5 has been released.

1.5 Fixes DOF field on NVIDIA cards as this is a bug fix it is free of charge to all 1.4 users. If you purchased 1.4 you should receive an email shortly with links to download  v1.5.

If you are a 1.4 user and do not recieve an email (and have checked your spam box) please contact me with your original order number and i will send you the new link.

Version History
---------------
#1.5 : Fixed DOF post on Nvidia, Tweaked AO intensity weighting, added AO debug output.
#1.4 : DOF post added, sky plane material added, general fixes and improvements.
#1.3 : Fixed Post Shader Error wich cause post efects not to be displayed on NVIDIA cards
#1.2 : R15 support, metalness map support, improved ssao, improved sky creation, vignette post added, hardware render fix, general fixes and improvements.
#1.1 : Fixed Shader Error Display Issue.
#1.0 : Initial Release

I also snuck a couple of non bug fixes into 1.5:) nothing major just tweaked AO intensity weighting that gives a slightly cleaner output and added an option to see just the raw AO pass on its own to make adjusting the parameters a bit easier to see.

For non 1.4 users the server has been updated with 1.5 and it is available to purchase now.

PIXELBERG UPDATE RELEASE 1.4 b

PixelBerg beta has been updated to version 1.4 and is available to purchase now.

PIXELBERG VERSION 1.4 RELEASED

WHATS NEW:
  • NEW DEPTH OF FIELD POST ADDED
  • NEW SKY PLANE MATERIAL ADDED
  • GENERAL FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS

HOW DO I GET THE LATEST VERSION?:
Because i have moved to a pay what you want pricing scale i can not provide free updates (as stated here) like i did on a traditional pricing model so the way it works is as follows:

If you made a purchase of Pixelberg in the last 14 days you will receive new download links via email (If you dont recieve an email within 24hrs then please contact me with your original order details). However if you are outside that timescale you will need to purchase again at whatever price you see fit for the latest version.

I hope people will see it as supporting the project and not mind putting a couple of dollars into the collection tin every now and then to help aid future development.
