Thread: Corona edit

  1. #1

    Corona edit

    G'day folks, I've been using coronas a fair bit lately and was wondering if anyone here knew how to edit them.
    They are a Direct Draw Surface (".dds" format) so I'm not just talking about changing the colour via texture and shader.
    The problem with using the currently available corona is that it will glow through and above the light shade.
    Sure we could lower the position until its not protruding through the lamp shade but then we're left with an unnatural glow well below the light bulb.

    What is needed is a half corona. The bottom half.
    Who's up for the task?

    Haha, yeah that is a problem sometimes. In the version of Refinery I sent you I have mitigated this effect on this lamp by decreasing the scale of the corona entity and lowering it into the bulb. Take a look and see if it's satisfactory .

    Also try out static/corona_util.tik. It produces less of a flare.

    Thanks Major, scaling does help as Smithy suggested. Also using corona_util.
    Although I haven't tried corona_util as yet.

    lol Shit happens.
    Your video snippet reminds me, you recently posted one of Happy Gilmore. Well it was shown (again) on Aussie TV over the weekend.
    This reminds me of our Crocodile Dundee chat where a day or two later it was on TV here and I posted you the photo of my TV I took to prove it. lol
    I just hope you haven't jinxed us with the bloody Three Stooges now.
    Don't make me come over there. lol
