Product Information

Baroque Grandeur - The state or quality of being grand; vastness; greatness; splendour; magnificence; stateliness; dignity - or in this case, all of the above.

Included in this pack is a detailed reception room in the Baroque style, fully customizable with separate modular wall sections, doors, columns, ceiling, floor and authentic furniture pieces. Great care has been taken to detail every inch in authentic period design, from the architecture and decoration, through to the styling of the furniture. Ornate details are in both the geometry and texture maps to create an intricate and accurate architectural pack which is as versatile as it is detailed.

We have included several preload presets to quickly get you started, as well as basic presets to allow each piece to be customized. Wall sections can be interchanged with doors, or even windows as well as the wall columns that can also be interchanged.

Another feature of this product are two bespoke light packs from Dreamlight, offering D|S 2.3+ setups of both Day and Night looks. They transform the set into something amazing and we have to thank Dreamlight for all the hard work during the development of this product.

To get the maximum out of this product, we recommend a decent PC with lots of RAM. We have tried to cater for the lower end of the spectrum too by dismantling the set - so by stripping out things that aren't required in a scene it should work fine on those PC's too!

Quickstart Guide

In the Runtime/Figures/Bar_Granr folder load one of the !Pre cr2 files to preload the part of choice. If you wish to add the complete set, load the !!Pre_* files. The !!Pre_Tables contain both preloads for either table style (rounded or square), so you only need to pick one of them.

Any additional elements can be added by loading their respective cr2 file.

Detailed Instructions

Baroque Grandeur is made up of separate sections, which when loaded up will create a full 360° reception room, with furniture at either end.

Breakdown and explanation of preload cr2's:

!!Pre_Side_L:

This is the miscellaneous furniture parts, loaded in position for the left side of the room. This includes the Candelabras, Pedestals with Candlesticks on them, Rug, Ivy plants for the walls, and Chandelier.

!!Pre_Side_R:

As above, but positioned for the right hand side of the room.

!!Pre_Tables

This loads up the complete tables, chairs, table cloths, and candlesticks for both sides of the room. Please note that this preset features the normal chairs, not armchairs. You can replace this if you wish by loading up the !Pre_Tbl_A_Chair preset and positioning it into place.

!!Pre_Tables_R

This loads up the round tables, chairs, round table cloths, and candlesticks for both sides of the room. Please note that this preset features the normal chairs, not armchairs. You can replace this if you wish by loading up the !Pre_R_Tbl_A_Chair preset and positioning it into place.

!!Pre_Walls

This loads up the main room elements, including ceiling, floor, windows, doors and wall panels. This default configuration can be changed by replacing the sections with the individual part presets with the BG_ prefix to the filename.

!Pre_Chandelier

This loads up the both the chandelier and chandelier crystal parts - centred in the middle of the room.

!Pre_R_Tbl_A_Chair

This loads up a complete round table, round table cloth, candlestick and armchairs - centred in the middle of the room.

!Pre_R_Tbl_Chair

As above, but with normal chairs replacing the armchairs.

!Pre_Tbl_A_Chair

This loads up a complete table, table cloths, candlesticks and armchairs - centred in the middle of the room.

!Pre_Tbl_Chair

As above, but with normal chairs replacing the armchairs.

The rest of the presets are for each individual part, which will load up centred where appropriate. Use these to create new preloads with custom arrangements.

Camera Presets:

Included in this set are 8 camera presets (Poser format) to get you started. These can be found in the Runtime/Cameras/Bar_Gran folder.

Light Presets:

Included in this set are two sytles of lights for D|S 2.3+. They can be found in Content/Dreamlight/Bar_Gran Light Set folder. They been designed specifically for this set by Dreamlight - and an superb job they have done as usual!

There are two preloads, with the ! prefix - or for greater control there are individual settings for the day or night, and independant table configurations.

For optimum use, we would recommend D|S 3 (64bit if your OS supports it) as it offers a dramatic improvement in rendering speed, don't worry though as all lights are compatible with D|S 2.3 too.

Materials:

In addition to the Poser defaults, there are D|S specific MAT files included in the Content\Environments\Architecture\Bar_Gran directory.

Notes:

Unless otherwise stated, the promos were created in D|S 3. Those not created in D|S were created using Lightwave 9.6. Postwork was done in Photoshop CS4.
