I was playing around with making top-down perspective snowfall. I don't think I've got it down yet, and I'm not sure about the tiling properties, but I thought I'd share where I'm at.

You probably won't be able to see the pngs (white snow), so I laid them over one of Hylas's buildings for contrast.

I like it ... You took a very difficult concept and made an excellent representation of it Pedrov

Thanks! This is a three-layer version with each subsequent layer using a slightly smaller brush and slightly more gaussian blur. Not sure how to use it in DJ though.

I don't have DJ myself, so it would be great if someone could try it in a map to see if it tiles okay... if not, I can probably fix it.

I like the first PNG. The other one is too sharp and well-defined.

Nice job.

I agree. I figured I'd include both in case someone had a need for a closer camera shot (e.g., maybe to show ashes or fallout rather than snow). I also think the additional layer helps the snow stand out on rougher textures like the grasses below.

demos on grass:
2 layers

3 layers

Great work!

The second version on the grass looks like white flowers, I like it!
The problem with these objects is that they wouldn't be visible on a snow floor...

I made versions that tile:



P.S. Could you please post the sharp layer on it's own for flowers?

Thanks all! Anyone willing to take up the challenge of making these more user friendly for DJ folks? Tiling (per falcon)?

While I have a soapbox for a moment, I'd also like to advocate sharing creation files (that way we could all learn from one another). I'd be happy to post any psd files or scripts for POV-Ray from my somewhat meager collection.

More soapbox. I just realized that I haven't found a single creation of mine on a map (to my knowledge). I think it would be cool to somehow tie together the art contests with another map contest (that makes use of the art). My two cents.
