Challenge 2: Info


The upload period for the January 2015 Test Challenge Constructive solid geometry (CSG) has ended. All members are kindly requested to cast their votes for the best images of the Challenge. The voting period closes the 24th of the current month. Please remember that you have to vote for ALL the images if you want your votes to be taken into account.


The new Stills Challenge for January 31st / February 28th 2015 is:


For the first official Challenge 2 round, the theme chosen will appeal to hard-core CSG experts as well as to all those who prefer more devious ways to approach reality. The possibilities are vast. Diaphanous soap bubbles may vie with panoramic bubbles in space or bubbles in volcanic rocks. And there are more, as you will show us.

We want to see the best 3D stills  and animations artwork that you can develop using the rendering program and tools of your choice for the given subject. Over the 'Internet' and home-computing years, there have been many advancements in computer chip technology, which has enabled us budding 3D artists to actually do what we want to do. One usage that has catapulted in popularity on home computers is the ability to make/develop a still image or animation using various 3D rendering and raytracing programs used along with associated 3D modelling and texture software.

So get yourself some free programs (see above) and give it a try!

Last but not least, this TC-RTC website is here for everyone to have fun and to enjoy the experience of creating an image or animation in 3D given the present challenge.

We all look forward to seeing yours.

Above all else, enjoy the Challenge!
