Amberlight 2 Tutorial - Achieving a Desired Effect
« on: March 28, 2017, 04:08:21 PM »
This is a short tutorial that shows how to create a symmetrical effect in an Amberlight 2 image. Here's a little extra info for you to help you understand what certain values, specifically the Field Position Parameter values, are based upon.

In the tutorial I chose an image size of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The Field Position values in Amberlight 2 are fortunately also measured in pixels. So if you see a value given for the X Position axis that is written thusly:
X Position =300,
300 is the pixel distance from the left edge of the image for that position. It places the center point of the field at that distance. Likewise for the Y position values except that the pixel distance is from the top of the image.

Why is this significant? Because knowing what type of measurements are being used will allow you to do your own formulae for an image. Basically you can use these values to position your fields on a specific pixel in the scene window. This can even place the fields off of the scene window for use as an off image influence.

Now I used five fields in this tutorial, but you can have as many as nine, and each field can be positioned using this method.

Experiment with the position values, and design your own  in Image Pixel Size, and Field Pixel Positions.

Understand that for Amberlight 2 to be able to render something of interest, you must have at least two fields for there to be influences that generate the fractal pattern in a render. More about that in another tutorial, if this one gets some use. To add fields click on the + found to the right of the  word Fields at the top of the left tool shelf. To delete an existing field, click on the center point of the one you don't want and then click on the - to the right of the word Fields. Then you can use the tools on the same tool shelf to edit your fields.

Here is the tutorial PDF:
DAZ Studio, Bryce, Poser, Wings 3D, Howler, Blender, PSP, Hexagon, MSO PowerPoint & Word, just a few of the programs I use.
