Okay, now for a challenge...ice in water. anyone?

If you have some time feel free to play around and experiment for all to learn how
we can achieve this one. (I am clueless)
Even though like myself we will not need this effect in our daily struggles we need to consider that if this can be achieved successfully imagine how water, glass and metal could be used together with convincing results.

I suppose or at least hope to try and achieve is two different densities of the same material.


The water and ice (droplets) textures save in your materials, they will come in handy some day. feel free to use any texture, means possible to achieve a look that works..except post edit (the whole point of this in the first place)

The trick so far:

In Sketchup when you intersect two objects the plane of infiltration disects each other, so as the above example, the ice disects the water line and thus the water line/plane needs to be removed from the inside of the ice cube, making it  one full texture and completely in the water. The easiest way to explain is the water needs a hole for the ice to fit in.

Okay....so it seems my son has been reading these forums, he challenged me to do a rain scene, space theme and a real fire scene (he did not think my Ghost rider was convincing in Podium). Ahem!... masters of podium...yes you!

Can I get a little help here already?

He also added (wise-ass) that most folk on Max site who do space scenes have no clue as the lack of friction and air density changes the way lights act., this coming from a sci-fi freak could hold merit as he has seen more space in his few years than me in my entire existence. how would light work in space?

Anyway when I challenged him as to the validity of space when we are architects here on earth he with a wise-assed thought you were gonna ask gesture replied "In a few years when they are building on Mars or even spacestations for that matter, are you going to stay down here building houses or up there making history?" what doth one say?

More math and less tv says I.

Solo, how old is your little 'wise-ass' (your words)?
Old enough to have a physics-grade or something like that? Light itself is matter-less and 'behaves' as always: it is there or not! The question remains, what surface it is reflected by or absorbed of ... take a look at the NASA-pages and the moon-landing-site-pictures (if they aren't rendered actually) and you won't find something uncommon in the lights 'behavior' even if the moon hasn't got any atmosphere itself ... tststs those kids ....

PS: don't discuss quarks and co. since render time is valuable....

Ya really Solo....does your son have a masters in physics? Geez..all the kids my 12 year old daughter hangs around with are discussing American idle or what boy in school is cute..I have yet to overhear a discussion on the lack of atmosphere in space and how it affects light waves!

OK... the next Podium render contest...space station interior scene!

I got two know-it-alls 12 and 15, the oldest is Girls, sports, girls, grunge music, girls, instant messenger, girls...did I mention he likes girls? the other is sci-fi, school, art (damn good), stupid questions, more questions and even more..(bit of a nerd actually with two left feet)...I know he will read this.
He wants to be a Game vetrenarian and the oldest wants to get lucky (know what i mean) thankfully they are drug free and on course at school, they have a very well defined boundary of discovery, and crossing over is not a cosideration (I'm one of those No is No no matter what guys...but fair and fun when they are on track)
