Oh, this looks like fun. Thanks, Ravs...I might just disappear for a while :)

Do you have to register with Cornucopia to use the program?

Looks like you just have to register to download. Do you think otherwise for any particular reason ?

I didn't have to register to download but I have yet to try installing it.

I'm looking forward to making some nice forest textures with it once I've got it up and running.

I was totally going to be the one to bring vue on the scene. This bites.

Thanks for the post, more cool software I'll probably never find time to use. :)

Oh yes - Vue Pioneer is excellent! The only trouble is that it gets you hooked really fast and you'll never be doing anything else for the rest of your life. :D

I've been using Vue for some time now (and it's certainly a step up from Bryce by a long way) and I have a link for Vue Pioneer (that boosts my ratings if you use it - but is still free to you) here - http://www.cornucopia3d.com/?affid=3222153 (shameless plug!)

You only need to register with Cornucopia3D to activate the product but it doesn't require you to buy anything.

I have a gallery on their site showing all my resent Vue renders (But using Vue Complete - not the cut down Vue Pioneer) - http://www.cornucopia3d.com/galleries/thumbnails.php?album=lastupby&uid=56529

These are some of my latest images

Pretty cool stuff there. If I get into 3d I may never return to the land of the living.

Yuck...I've just loaded it and registered with Cornucopia.

I'm only just starting with it (been a long time user of Bryce for many years) but it looks like all the renders come with the Vue logo stamped hugely on them.

Need to look at this in more detail but my initial thoughts about the free version are not good (although the full version looks just stunning).

Yeah, the Vue8 full version (~$1,400) is simply awesome looking - reviewed favorably in 3D World by a guy from ILM. Pioneer is pretty darned cool for a free app but all of the useful components have to be purchased separately (import module ~$130, render module ~$49, etc.). Bryce is actually pretty cheap these days and does a lot more than the free version with no add-ons. Still, you can't beat free.
