2D into 3D
Today I’m working on a small side project – creating tutorials for using Bryce, basically a 3D landscape creator, as a 3D space for manipulating photographs. Bryce is free software and is available for the PC and Mac but not Linux unfortunately.
The way I see it panning out is that there will be half a dozen or so tutorials of which I’ll publish one a week on a Friday. The first one will be posted tomorrow.

If you have ever wanted to dabble in 3D or just find an interesting and different way to use photographs this project should be of interest. Bryce is very non technical for 3D software and instant gratification is almost guaranteed. The software is traditionally used for creating landscapes with basis in either reality or fantasy – the use we will be putting it to is a little unusual. One thing is for sure, the imagery that can be produced in a 3D space is not simply more of the same.
Much more tomorrow including an introduction and a tutorial that will enable the production of an image similar to the one above – (it really isn’t that hard – honest).
