3D Post No. 23 - Vray Toon

Didn't know Vray Toon came with the SDK package, i thought it was some separate plugin that functions the way the ink and paint material does in the default 3ds max settings.

Anyhow, got a chance to experiment with it, quite easy to use really. Just go to the environment settings in max and voila

The settings are pretty self explanatory.

So i experimented with one of my old stuff and here's how it came out:

Pretty neat. :) Reminds me of those old architectural rendering styles that we used to mimic in college.

Now here is something interesting -

We did a project in which the designer specifically wanted this effect, more of selling the concept rather than trying to do a photoreal, accurate rendering. In the course of developing the render, I always use a sampling of -1, 0 and super low settings (like .1 for my global subdivision multiplier) in my drafts. The designer surprisingly liked the effect (they sort of looked like brush - stroked filtered in photoshop) and the rawness of the image, that the final resolution was rendered using the draft settings. :)

Viva Vray Toon..

Please view these clips and videos and check out the website that follows. The following clips prove that a criminal network within our government/private sector was responsible for the collapse of the three World Center buildings on 9/11 and consequently the death of thousands. The only way for us to assure that we do not fall prey to another government-sponsored terror attack is to make the truth behind 9/11 known all throughout the country and recognized all throughout the media. The traitorous perpetrators of 9/11 would be deterred from carrying out another scheme of mass deception for fear that it would trigger the country to revolt against the government, rather than bring the country together like 9/11 did. So please share this with others and press for the truth to be recognized for the sake of our security and sanity.

-molten steel spewing out the side of tower, which could only be produced by an incendiary device containing an ingredient like thermate/thermite since jet fuel does not burn hot enough (around 800 degrees C) to melt steel (around 1300 degrees C)

-an example of what thermate/thermite does to steel which is usually used to weld or cut steel

-firefighters describing molten steel as lava-like at ground zero

-cleanup team finds hot steel glowing red and orange all over ground zero

-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani unwittingly admits on news that he got warning to leave WTC complex that morning because the towers would be coming down despite firemen, fire department, police department, and reporters on scene not knowing

-Building 7 collapses at nearly free fall speed (about 7 seconds--free fall speed for bldg. that height is about 6 seconds) which defies laws of gravity unless all significant points of structual resistance to the collapse were removed by controlled demolition charges. The reason the towers didn't fall at nearly free fall speed is because their demolition was top-down, not bottom-up like Building 7. Footage of their collapse confirms this.

-leaseholder of WTC complex accidentally admits on PBS special that they "pulled" Building 7

-Other segment of same PBS special unwittingly confirms that "pull" is a term used for demolishing a building as a contractor uses the same term to describe demolishing Building 6 weeks after attack. The official explanation for the collapse of Building 7 was that fire and debris damage from the towers weakened the building's structure. The admission that Building 7 was demolished proves that the building's collapse was prepared BEFORE 9/11 since it would have been impossible for a demolition team to place demolition charges all throughout the building in a matter of a few hours, especially in a building with an ongoing fire and damage from debris.

-BBC reports Building 7 (Salomon Brothers building) has collapsed due to fire damage weakening the building BEFORE it actually collapsed, showing that the perpetrators scripted the collapse for the media by preparing an explanation for the collapse to avoid any unfavorable speculation in the immediate aftermath. As you will see, they got it out too early. (Forward this clip to 14:45 to see the report. The comments added highlight the blunder.)

-confirmation that the Salomon Brothers building is Building 7

-emergency workers instructing bystanders to get back because Building 7 is "coming down soon" and is "about to blow up"

To get a better idea of how all these pieces fit into the puzzle, I recommend watching the two videos below and checking out the online journals below. The videos provide more in-depth explanations and also show how 9/11 was not the only time and place that false-flag terrorist operations have been carried out. The journal shows some of the scientific work that has been done to expose the official story as a fraud.
