I’ve added “Recursion” to the abstracts gallery tonight. I am still learning to use “Structure Synth” and this structure spoke to me for some reason. I should be able to do a multiscreen fairly soon as well. Speaking of multiscreens…

I received an email from a fan this morning that may be of interest to multiscreen users… My name is Jake, long-time fan and lifetime member. The last 5 wallpapers have not had the dual screen options, what’s going on? Those are the only ones I use. I have 3 dual screen setups, and I use display fusion to rotate every 15 mins between your most recent 30 wallpapers. Are the most recent wallpapers going to be offered in dual screen format anytime soon? Thanks man, much appreciated.

My reply…

Thanks for writing! I apologize for the slowdown in dual-screens. The simple answer is that I don’t have the hardware right now to render multi-5K scenes in Vue d’Esprit. The single 5K renders are taking between 7-10 days at this point so multiply that by 3 (rendering for 2 extra 5K screens) and you see my problem. Lord help me when 8K monitors come out…

I should be able to bite into my backlog when get a new workstation later this spring. Then I can set my current rig to start rendering Vue multiscreens. Until then you might want to try using the 5K single screen image and see if you can find an interesting crop to fit your config?

PS: I would add that I am working on a couple of Lightwave scenes right now (while rendering the multiscreen version of “Moondance”) so there should be a few new multiscreens coming soon!


All hardware and software purchases, of course, have to be approved by the DB Master of Coin (Jessie). She tells me that a lot more people need to sign up and renew before we can lay out for a new render-beast.

You can help by signing up or renewing today or you can visit my new Patreon page.

tldr — I need your help so I can get a new machine to keep up with the 4K/5K (8K?) monitors to come!
