  • My copy of Vue d’Esprit 5 Infinite arrived over the weekend so I thought I would sit down and play with some of the incredible new features. Strangely enough, I ended up creating an image that didn’t use any of the new features. Maybe next time. The image is called “Endless Blue” and I’ve posted it on the New Images page this morning. I hope you like it.

    Just to give credit where credit is due: some of the ideas here came from helping Jessie with her very first Vue d’Esprit image. She is actually very artistic (probably more than I am) but she’s never used 3d software. Perhaps someday you will see a gallery of her work on DB.

    As for Vue 5 Infinite, they’ve made it a lot easier to create grand forests and complex scenes. I’m looking forward to pushing the program to its limits. For “Endless Blue”, however, I felt that less would be more. I hope you agree.
