Description:

This was inspired to me by another wallpaper named "Only K" and I decided to make my own to add some effects like the core light of the gear and transparency to the "K".

The image has been rendered with povray 3.6. It took 2h43 on an Athlon XP 2600 (Barton) for the 1600x1200 image.

If you have any idea on improving the picture, please comment.

i see what maybe a problem is and hw you can mae your gear more like metal.

and in the finish of your metal texture a feflection and choose for the maximum color a light color (example #C0C9D3)

with the reflektion you can make more metalic effect to your gear... you should test it out to find the best you want.

there is no or a small antialiasing on the image...

i know it took very long to render a big version with good antialiasing but it looks much better with...

try
threshold 0.001
depth 3-4
and maybe recursive
it should be take very long by the glass, but it will realy look better...

all together: good work... and work on...

Is it about a particuliar resolution ?

I used recursive antialiasing (threshold 0.3 / deep 2) but perhaps it is not enough.

I'd like to make the gear more metal-like, but I don't know how to do. And the shadows are too hard.

i saw it at 1600 but it seems the same at 800...

just try threshold 0.003 / deep 3. it schould be better lines around the gear to the black background.

a more metalic gear.. hm your background is complet black, isn't it? so ther is nothing that can reflect. i know the problem i have it sometimes too (if the skycolor is realy black).

can you make a zip file with the KPovModeler project file and your used fonts. so it's easyer to test run it at other maschins and to test how to get a better metal ;)

kde_gear.zip done.
The font used is the common Vera Bitstream Bold in /usr/share/fonts/ttf/vera/VeraBd.ttf

The background is a dark gray (#9E9E9E) with iridescence (irisation in french).
