I don't really know how to use Gimp but this would work in there right?

Seems your site is extremely devaluated by the "Top screen publicity"! :o
It's very hurting for the pleasure of the eyes! :(
I don't understand that for a firm who promote artistic feeling! :shock:

thank you for the pointer.
To tell you the truth, I was focusing on architecture component of my business last couple years. The rendering part really needs more of my attention.

Thanks Dennis!!!

That is really cool!! I was wondering if there was a way to do this (that you know of) in a program such as Gimp instead? Not all of us can afford Photoshop, after all! Thank you!

Hi Crankston,

With Gimp, you basically do the exact same steps as with PS (I do not have PS either). One thing maybe; you need to add a transparency channel to your top (B&W) layer as Gimp does not seem to add it automatically.

I made this one - a pdf for a presentation I made the other day - with Gimp (although obviously not as artistically as Dennis and used a rendered image instead of a raw SU export and also I did it somewhat differently)
https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid= ... NmZm&hl=en
and also this one - where I kept the linework on the rendered image as well

Thanks!! I am somewhat new to Gimp, but I will give it a whirl later and see how it works.

Dennis,

The one thing I'd like to add that is a game changer is using layer mask in Photoshop. There is no need to ERASE anything and lose it forever. By using the mask you can reveal what is below and if you don't like what you revealed you just switch the color of your brush to white instead of black and paint on the layer mask and you reverse the technique. You can change the opacity and flow of the brush to give all sorts of effects.

An elegant simplicity to your technique, Dennis, with a great effect. All too often, at the exploraty stage, clients get stuck on the hard edges or overly 'realistic' aspects of a model, which stops them entering into the spirit of the proposal. Your technique, without being overly labour intensive, gives them a way in. Thank you for sharing your creative thinking :)

I have tried this and it is great way to generate a presentation from the 3d drawings!

A simple but expresive enough technique. That was the first technique I learnt. Thanks, Dennis.
