    Hey folks,

    As you may have noticed, we have a tip of the day string now in the forum below the Recent Topics block. And here: https://www.bforartists.de/tip-of-the-day

    This is a bit empty at the moment. We have just a few tips so far. In case somebody has a cool tip to share, everything is welcome :)

    Kind regards

    Let´s brainstorm.

    • If you keep changing the same settings in new scenes over and over again, save a custom startup file.
    • When updating to a new version of BfA, you can import all the settings from the previous version by the click of a button on the splash screen.
    • Use “render border” to only render and preview a part of the image and save render time.
    • Use Ctrl-1,2,3,4 to quickly assign and change the “Subdivision Surface” modifier
    • Use the text search in the complete PDF manual to quickly find what you are looking for.
    • Use layers to organise your scene and easily create different lighting settings.
    • The principaled shader is easy to use and lets you create 90% of all the materials you can think of.
    • Use “recover last session” or “recover auto save” to recover your scene after a crash.
    • When you click close on BforArtists, think twice, before clicking OK. ^^
    • Hit F12 to render an image and CTRL F12 to render an animation.
    • Use branched path tracing in cycles to take full control of quality and render time.
    • Select “create UVs” when creating primitives to avoid having to UV unwrap them later.
    • Use HDRI environments to quickly generate realistic reflections and lighting.
    • Bevel, bevel, bevel, there are no sharp corners in reality, so there should be none in your scene, if you are going for realism.
    • Share your work in the “Art Corner” to get feedback and critique on your project.
