@herrhummel Andreas must have some Karma when it comes to model+model, since he won one of the previous Giveaways too! granted, the other one was for a best image - http://www.ronenbekerman.com/modelmodel-submitted-image-winner-andreas-hummel/
This one was completely random!
@ronenbekerman wow, me again! It must be a sign that i should use more model+model stuff. ;)
i´m very happy about winning this random part of the giveaway! big thanks to Ronen and model+model !
wow!! I love your renders full of books! They come to perfection! By the time I always get the books and multi-use sub-object ... a very slow! I have really wanted to use this script!And... one more thing: thank you very much for reading my interest in books in the renders! What a great customer service on your website! Congratulations! A greeting! @ronenbekerman
I use a combination o scattering few using this awesome free plugin (which I think does everything their plugin does) http://mourelask.weebly.com/bookscatter.html And of course, manually placing some books horizontally, or at special place. So that it looks like from Design Magazine photoshoots (like Poliform catalogues).
I actually like this collection, and even bought few books already (but will not buy whole volume), but generally, it's bit pricey, but maybe they will sell ;- ). I am looking forward to contest, and will share some stuff for free that I made for it, I love book shelves.
It seems like great models. The thing with these books is, it takes such a long time to create all the proper textures and materials on your own, and not least place them manually!
I guess this pack could be quite a time saver :-)
Is a genius idea. This script will be great for me to give character realistic renderings. I'm impatient and I can not expect to win! @ronenbekerman
A very good idea to write that kind of script. I hate placing books in bookshelves! I think everybody does. This script definitely will save a lot of time and brain power for more important things like materials etc. I look very much forward to give it a try.
Script looks really nice, but it would be nice if you could buy individual book sets and get the Book Manager script with them. $150 for books is cost-prohibitive for most, maybe buy two individual sets and you'll also get the script?
Some time ago I did an image with hundreds of books, and i turned crazy scatering books manually,... and so my pc ...Saunds very useful...!
nothing much can i said, its fantastic.. always produce something helpfull for my viz. workflow.. thanks ronen.. very user friendly script..
I kinda like the way this script works as it allows us to actually focus less on technical part and put more effort in enhancing a 3D in terms of art wise . Thank you for bringing us this wonderful product . Cheers
I always like to enter the site "model+model"
I'm always was scared tidying books...Shorten work processes has always been a welcome. Love the work :-)
nice.....Books look really interesting and in cooperation with the script it will be the very useful tool which save a time and make more libraries in archviz :)
Very nice Script. This could make our life much easier. It is not easy to arrange books. You have to make it look random it take a lot of time.
Having put all the books manually in my scenes which consumes allot of time I think I'm gonna love this!
I have been always avoiding "books scenes" because the nightmare that is to put books one by one, but now with this script that is a thing from the past... :)
I once did some bookshelves in which i had to put lots of books, and there were some ways to get it done, but as always in photo-realism, if you want it to look real, then most of the times you will have to do it yourself, and we all know that it can sometimes be very time consuming, I believe this script / models package could be really useful for making this easier, and so far I've seen, it works like a charm giving you that natural feeling of books being arranged.
I'm really looking forward to get my hands on this soon, as for now I'm working on two projects that actually have bookshelves in it.
Amazing idea and that its time has come. Should save many hours of tedium fixing up bookshelves as well as encourage a bit more literature in our CG renders!
Books are very frustrating to work with. This script looks amazing and a great way to save our time.
There was a before and an after FloorGenerator script, there will be an after Bookmanager, great work ! If it could be released separately it would be even better (the book collection looks magnificent, but not everybody needs this diversity).
Books are always one of the hardest and time consuming things to do, Modeling each one of them and applying textures and images to them either pre or ost render is a real drag. The software could help me drastically in reducing the time invested in these type of renders. Amazing idea
