Hey, how do you get the spheres to look so real? I have used inkscape but can't figure out how to get that glossy effect. I know lighing effects in gimp 2.0 allow some cool features but this 3d appearance is simply amazing. Let me know how to do it. Also, I like the Debian look, would you allow me to place a Xandros logo on the second ball. I will give all credit to you, but we need something like this for Xandros. Let me know. Again, it looks great

Hi!

I'm very happy you like it. I used 3dsmax to make this scene - I'd be very hard to make such realistic reflection/refraction effect with 2d editor.

If you would like to modify it in any way, feel free to do it - it's released under GPL. If you want, I can send you .3ds file.

Very nice, but aren't these dark shadows (on the top of spheres) too dark? This reflection on "floor" is great!

Hi again!

3dsmax is great 3d app, but it's commercial software. '.3ds' is its own file format. If you used Blender or other free 3d editor, I think, you could easily convert it to your format (and then edit as you want). But if you don't use any 3d app, I could make version with Xandros logo instead the Debian one.

I have never used blender, but will look into it. As for adding the xandros logo, I can open your jpeg / png in inkscape, then create 3d balls and place them in the logo pattern. This is not too difficult, see my karabma icon, same use of inkscape. But I would like to create 3d images in linux if possible. Main reason is I would like to creat a 3d icon size computer for My Linux icon which will rotate in karamba instead of taking 29 pictures of an actual computer in 29 different locations then edit each pic. If there were a 3d app out there that would allow me to rotate the 3d image 360 degrees and at 29 different places take a snapshot in jpeg or png then it would allow me more time to creat these icons for karamba.
Eric.
