Re: arched bridge

Great photo Nancy!! And some very nice renditions from all. Here's my go at an oil effect. The details are lost in reducing for posting so I included a 100% crop. This was done with the new DAPx64, plus some tweaking in Photoshop to bring out the brush strokes.

Re: arched bridge

Lyle- you're most definitely channeling the impressionists there
Fran - just lovely!
Pat - the vignette makes a nice frame for your interpretation
OlBaldy - that is SO cheerful. How did you get those cool grungy edges?
Veronica-Wonderful results
Grant - I really like how Fractalius seems to 'know' what to simplify and which lines to use as a texture
Photomaster - Your first one absolutely blew me away...did you really start with my little picture to make that? Your second one quite captures the feel of a bright fall day
Grant - What a happy orange Monet-like edit. Thanks for the 100% crop.

Wow! You guys always blow me away with your creativity but you're all out doing yourselves on this one.

- Nancy

Yes I did. The new 64 bit version of Dynamic Auto Painter is capable of producing some amazing results. Coupled with Photoshop there is no limit to what one can achieve. It is well worth learning for anyone interested in producing authentic, fine art. I'm just beginning to tap the powerful features found in the program. Pay particular attention to the canvas and material settings.

Re: arched bridge

I agree with you PM; the canvas features of the new DAP is definitely the gem for this new version. I still wish Oscar would have allowed for a transparent canvas option, but I guess it would have been just too difficult to implement.

Re: arched bridge

Lyle, what do mean when you say transparent canvas option? I think DAP gives significant control over the canvas.

Re: arched bridge

I like to use object based AOPs too PM; a transparent canvas would be very benificial w.r.t. these type of AOPs where I can add additional dimension via drop shadow effects on a canvas of my choice using an external program (in my case GIMP). Still, DAP 64 is definitely a much more powerful program then its predecessor no doubt. The ability to add lighting/dimension to the overall rendition after the render is complete is very cool indeed.
