I've not been involved with TS (or CG in general) in a number of years, but while shuffling through some old backups, I found the TS scene archive for one of the last (and one of the few) images I did in TS5. Out of curiosity, I loaded it up in 6.6 and played around a bit, trying to overcome the brute volumetrics that always bothered me in the TS 5 version, with the added volumetric features in 6.6 (which obviously I barely understand).

Goodness knows if it's any better, or even any good at all, but it was kinda fun.

Absolutely spectacular!

I hope my current project comes out in the same zip code as yours. :p

Welcome back.

The user may be 'ancienne', but the work is still frais et nouveau.

Looking forward to you having more fun.

very nice work! I like the volumetric lights and the whole surrealistic atmosphere.

That's a very cool piece - I can't actually decide which version I like best, although it almost doesn't matter, they're all great!

Nice to see you in the forums, sir!
That was always my favorite of your works, really happy to see it again. :)

Hello there Terry! Good to hear from you again, and nice to see a new render too :) Is your email address the one on site there? Would be good to get in touch again and see how things are going.

Now my hopes are all raised that we might see more Terry renders, reworkings of previous ones are fine since the previous ones were so awesome anyway ;) In fact you could just post the old ones again, they have readily stood the test of time and still look great today.

My big question Terry, are you still selling used old classic books?
Also I thought you moved on to other software?

Hey guys, many thanks indeed!

And special thanks and greetings - Spacekdt, Scotty, Tom and Steinie - you are blessed/cursed with long memories:o

I did enjoy getting my feet wet again, and will rummage around among the backups some more to see what still works. Really have only a basic install at this point, w/out many of the old tools and plugins that were involved (custom darktrees, for example, are lost somewhere).

Yes Tom, the old e-mail address is still effective, though I've gotten to be pretty lousy at keeping up (something about dealing w/ e-mails all day long at work requires a break from them for at least a few after-hours). It'd be great to hear from you, but I beg your patience.

Yes Steinie, I'm still in the book business, and putting ever more hours into it these days to accomplish the same results. Finally got a new iteration of our website on line this summer, just in time for the recession: (

(not a plug, really!)

I won't say I "moved on" as far as software goes...I dabbled a bit, and admit to following a path that kept me active for a while with Cebas Pyrocluster and FinalRender, but that also coincided with a slide from less to almost zero time/energy available to touch CG at let's just say a hiatus of sorts.

In the mean time, again my thanks, and I'm glad I could provide a moment or two of nostalgic viewing fun.

I suffer from the same email issue, that having been on email for many hours in the day for work, I find myself shying away from it outside of work hours, making me a bad correspondent outside of work issues! So that will ensure I understand any delays, and I'll be sure to drop you a line by email in the next few days.

Looking forward to seeing any more renders that you may have the time and energy to create or revisit, and also going to take a look at the bookstore site too!
