Thank you wax.

I can see this product not just for architectural renderings, but for changing teddy bear skins to actually using it on clothing.

I saw the animation in progress in the beta forums, very cool stuff. :clap:

One thing however, the splash screen does not stay open long enough for an animated image to show all the cycles, thus I'm thinking a static image would be best.

hmmm... not sure i would like this as a splash screen isnt really noticeable whats going on.
Perhaps it's better to let the scenery be procedural line view/with a blend texture. Give the Cameleon more attention for the eye. Perhaps he can have parts that lite up etc etc

*edit
i did a quick one :mrgreen:, note these are all models from the forum and the chameleon i found on the web. So i think i cant take part :eh:

okay small update!
i wanted to give i more of an chameleon effect so i used an old trick of mine to use light and use soft mask to fluently transform from on to another material and i added some fire flies for the detail :mrgreen: i wantreed to animated them but i couldnt cause i instanced them and it doesnt work. i need to do them all manually then?! it's still in the oven know so i'll late it bake thtough the night to clear it out

only problem i see! (ehh perhaps its a bigger problem) you cant really see what animal it is.
I cant model it in a better form now :crazy:

*EDIT
I updated the final image know, its a bit less noisy know

We've made an animated splash screen for a software one time ... it was not a good idea ;)

The image should be rendered with Thea and it is not necessary to use Colimo.

We are actually looking for an image, that would be related to nature/chameleon! ;) :shh:

best wishes
