Hard to believe it's not a photograph! And just as hard to believe one can download Vue 8 for FREE! And they say the program is not hard to learn, but I find that very hard to believe! What do you think?
Thank a lot! You can get the trial but it comes with watermarks all over the finished product. As for ease of use, it's not very hard to get a grasp on, the program was designed very well. However, it is very heavy on resources and sometimes you are looking at an extremely long render. I have an ordinary computer and this thing is hard on it sometimes, so I have to watch how much I put in my scenes, and try to thin out the atmospheres a bit. Every little thing you can get rid of helps in the end.

Hm, it is possible I have downloaded a slightly different application than the one you are using. The Cornucopia 3d website offers a free download of Vue 8 Pioneer, which is 575 Mb (!) and they say it is the full product. I have to wonder! Anyway, I have not done the install and if it does, indeed, turn out to be a "trial version", I would be very disappointed. There are many programs I would love to try but cannot afford. And especially when I see the kind of work that you and other artists on dA are doing, I wish I had more time and resources to get involved!
