This is the first in a set of modules designed to enhance, and build upon the power of great lighting/environment stand alones at Runtime DNA. These modules will be released over the next four months, one a month, for IDL Studio 2 and Render Studio 2014.

This module was built for IDL Studio/2 working in both products on both spheres and utilizes the color ramp attached to the IDL Sphere. A careful combination of colors is fed into the color ramp to bring about a number of effects that add beauty, detail and drama to any render. If you push back your render so you see the entire dome in the scene, you will see that the last color in the ramp corresponds to the highest color in the dome, collects the rest, and in combination with the incredible lights in IDL Studio 2, sends it out to be dispersed throughout your render.

The Color Ramp Series is broken down into three types of ramps:


For use in overall color of a render. Color is fed into render through the IDL Sphere, which encases the IDL Cove. Indirect lighting picks up the color, and splashes it across your render. Several color schemes are used from neutral to vivid. From light to light, the change can be subtle or dramatic. So, I included all the light sets I used when developing and rendering this product.


Gives detail and color matching to all skin color types. Power it with brilliant IDL lighting, and you are sure to make a portrait or skin texture promotional render stand out. Skin has varied colors, some blue, some yellow, some ruddy and red, and tawny or deep. The skin color ramps play on the texture in such a way as to help bring out the underlying skin tones. Again, using the sphere which encases the cove, indirect lighting gathers up the color and disperses it through the render and over the skin. In portrait renders, it can be an outstanding effect. In promotional renders this shows your skin off without having to rely on cheap postwork gimmicks. This is actually where I started to experiment with changing the colors in the ramp. I wanted to show my textures off in renders. These skin color ramps are a must have for texture and render artists who really want to showcase their portrait/texturing skills.


Originally developed to render the Daemonessa SSS, you can see in the above renders how important a role the color ramp played in adding overall drama and tone to the render. Without the color ramp, details were lost, and the lights did not bring out the underlying skin tones of the Daemonessa's highly detailed texture. The lighting is key here in this render, to show off SSS and the SSS shaders occurring over someone's ear, also found in other areas on the body, in this render, most notably in the nails and fingertips. I was also unable to light and get any detail on the background I added to the cove. When I added the color ramp, the background showed up in vivid detail, and immediately added depth to the render. The sense of horror conveyed by the color was evident. I built four specially colored horror ramps, and as you add to and light your scene, you can instantly give it the "art" look you might be looking for.
25 color ramps for the IDL Sphere in IDL Studio and IDL Studio 2. Colors are unusual, powerful, and there are ten that are devoted to helping you create better portrait and skin texture promotional renders. Also included as a bonus are all the lights used in the development and rendering of this product. Everything you need to get you set up in technicolor.
