QuoteIs there a good way to clean artefacts (the miscoloured border tiles, etc) that isn't so tedious?
Quote from: jamespetts on June 30, 2013, 06:14:32 PMYou can eliminate all alignment work, as well as painting out of the border colours, by using the automatic rendering script. It makes a massive amount of difference to the amount of time that it takes, and has the added advantage that everything ends up perfectly aligned as long as the model is in the right place in to start with (the front should be four squares away from the centre). Apart from the misalignment of all but the first vehicles, that looks good!

A little on the obscure side I have to say - I did encounter this when researching EMU types before but as it only ever had 2 units built I didn't consider it a priority to draw. Looking at the screenshot the only small thing I'd say is that the driver cab side windows are missing. Are you planning a rail blue livery variant as well?Well, if it is to be added then it should be balanced to ensure it isn't used that much - so a longer loading time than EMUs of that era.
Quote from: jamespetts on July 06, 2013, 12:23:50 AMJunna,those look rather splendid - thank you for your work to this. You are quite dedicated to the third rail DC EMU cause, I see! Five hours is a very long time to spend trying to get things aligned manually - I really do urge you to have a go with the automatic rendering scripts. Do you need any help in setting this up? I can try to give you some pointers if this would help. You don't have to worry about alignments at all with this, so long as the image is properly aligned in Blender to start with, which is not hard (especially if you are starting with an existing vehicle as a template and not changing its length). Once this system is set up, it drastically reduces rending time and effort and makes producing new vehicle graphics about as easy as making the .blend files in the first place.
