Creating Asteroid-Rings by BLPH Creating Asteroid-Rings by BLPH
Quite a few of you have asked me to write up a tutorial of how I created the asteroid-rings in Phenomenal View. Well, here you go :)

Also, which might be to your interest, I included the .vue-file in the download which is the final scene of the tutorial. Hit the download-button and rejoice :D

I hope you will enjoy this tutorial. If there are still questions left, feel free to ask me.

Comments and favs are, as usually, highly appreciated.

If you decide to use this tutorial for any of your scenes, crediting is highly appreciated. Also, it'd be great if you could link me to it so that I can view your work. Cheers! :ahoy:

It might be a while until I have anything to show - I have only recently bought
Vue, so I'm still settling in with the program. But I will link you to anything I do
using your tutorial :)

Is there a way to add bumps to the rocks?
BLPH Featured By Owner May 16, 2011   Digital Artist
Sure, you just have to go to the materials-panel (bottom right (by default the object-tab is shown; the materials-tab is one to the right if I remember correctly)), find the material equipped to the rocks, and replace it with some other. For additional realism, you can select displacement mapping, but this will be extremely processor-intensive, so I recommend to just be tricky with the materials and/or fix it up in some post-processing via painting, manipulating, or anything like that.

Hope that helps ;)
