Adding a bit of extra tender loving care to Visual Novel BG-CG productions by spending a bit more time on producing them and giving more attention to detail.

April 6, 2010

As the title says, I have “extra” free time this week so instead of doing things in my usual rapid “I must make it to my imaginary self imposed deadline” schedule…

So I decided use this spare time and practice and perfect this one aspect of VN production which I believe is my numero-uno forte… BG-CG’s. Read the rest of this entry ?

Finding that “Sweet Spot” 3D + 2D for BG CG’s for OELVN’s (My never ending quest for that deliciously perfect yet dirty and disgustingly quickly produced BG-CG)

March 22, 2010

Let’s get straight to the point. I am looking at ways to cut production time when making OELVN’s and one of the most time consuming is BG-CG’s… I have to do something about it. No deny… 3D is fast, flexible, re-usable but no matter what I try I just can’t seem to make it look like it was deliciously drawn by an artist… it looked odd and out of place no matter how you look at it (see previous posts).

Terragen Classic – For people who are too busy/lazy to draw landscape scenery for their VN projects

December 11, 2009

A few days ago, JinzouTamashii introduced me to a program called Terragen Classic. You may be wondering what the fuck is Terragen? Well… to put in in simple terms, it’s a 3D program that can generate large and beautiful landscape scenes quickly and cheaply.

So what does this has to do with Visual Novels you ask? Well… let’s say you need a BG for your VN project say a bunch of mountains. You could either (1) draw it manually, that is… if you could draw. And even if you could draw you probably don’t have much freetime (2) download a photo from the interwebs and use photoshop or any other editing software to filter it beyond recognition. Dirty but fast and does the job but not quite. It looked good but it’s not really flexible enough (3) Use Terragen and let it do the dirty work for you… either because I’m lazy or don’t have freetime…

Let’s take a closer look at this software.
