WishList talk on three point lighting

Here is an interesting information compiled by ‘Shivraj’ about Shashikant’s question on ‘three point lighting setup in CG’

Shivraj शिवराज देशपांडे said:

Three-point lighting is a standard method used in visual media such as video, film, still photography and computer-generated imagery. By using three separate positions, the photographer can illuminate the shot’s subject (such as a person) however desired, while also controlling (or eliminating entirely) the shading and shadows produced by direct lighting.

Bee-Eater painting


This is a digital painting, I did on 26th Oct 2008, after getting crazy with the newly purchased pen tablet. I painted this by referring a photograph taken by my brother. Its a common ‘bee eater’. I tried to match the painting as close to the photograph and I think I managed it almost. This was my first ever attempt to try a pen tablet and I really enjoyed it very much. It took me at least 4 to 5 hours to finish the painting.

Adding Keyboard shortcuts in Blender

From a recent comment through ‘Visitor’s Wishlist’, Sheetal Asked about ‘How to add keyboard shortcut to add a modifier in Blender. So here is how:

Here is a blender 2.63 screen-shot. In the scene just select any object. Then Go to modifier stack in the Properties panel. Now open the ‘Add Modifier‘ list. Then ‘Right-click‘ on the desired modifier from the list, that you want to create a shortcut. A small sub-menu will pop-up. Click on ‘Add short cut‘ button, move your mouse on the ‘press a key‘ link area and just press the desired shortcut key (or keys)

That’s it. You just added a brand new hotkey to that modifier.

Try it!
