First steps in the Advanced linking. In
this example the little cage is the parent
of the cones and it only transfers it's
size, which you can set in the Attributes
Second part of Advanced Linking lesson. In
this example only rotation is transferred
from the little sphere to the cones which
are building up the iris.
Amplification can be used for a lot of
nice effects. Very usefull lesson.
Here is a second part of
Amplifications...... The principle lined
out in the previous example can be used in
several ways: You can use it to amplify
rotation or scale.

In any regular 3D application, making
realistic wall is fairly simple. You
simply have to apply a 2d texture on a
square, with appropriate bump maps, to get
really good results.

In this picture you have the reflection of
the lit spheres in the mirror (nothing
special here) as well as the reflected
light! Nice trick.
In this example the turbine blades are
linked to the turbine hub (which is itself
linked to the case). Their origin handle
is moved to the turbine hub and they are
all in one family, so they easily can be
selected and animated separately without
interfering with the normal animation.

The sky tools in Bryce provide a powerful
method of creating an underwater
environment. They allow us to mimic the
colors of light filtering through water
and the haze and fog controls allow us to
create the illusion of particles suspended
in the water. This is the most important
part of an underwater scene.
Unity is the default state for an object.
Unity includes size & rotation. The
fun thing is that you can set this unity
