Getting the curve right and...


Howdy,

I am trying to get the curve so it looks right on a TRD Test board but it doesn't want to co-operate with me... Can anyone help?

Did you just darken the one from this board and it came out jagged like that?

No, I started fresh working from the colors used in the blur graphic below:

I was cruising along pretty good until I reached the curve (working from right to left) then boom I get these jaggies and the curve is more like a angle drawing...

Re: Getting the curve right and...


It looks like you stretched the slices bigger and bigger as you worked your way to the left. The highlight at the top starts to drop as the slices get longer.

The best way to do that would be to start with a flat surface with the shape and curve you want, and then apply the bevel and emboss feature using Photoshop or something similar.

When I get home tonight, I'll give it a shot.

Karma headed your way Skokey, that is exactly what I tried the last time around and while the shading looks good the resulting jaggies and angular appearance just won't work. I really appreciate the help emoticon

A little better?

Not knowing the exact settings of the original 3D object, I couldn't create a new one to match perfectly. Instead, I smoothed out your image.

One of these days I might figure out the bevel and emboss thing but for now I just stand in awe and bow to the master emoticon

That worked great Skokey, wish I could do more than a karma point a day because you deserve it.

Thank you so much for your help emoticon

You're very welcome PR. It feels good to be able to give back to those who help so many others.

On your original graphic, you had a slightly darker than white area below the 3D bar and I left it there. I noticed that you changed it to white which looks better with the white below but the tiled 3D bar still has that darker color. On a wide screen, you can see the abrupt change.
