  1. Tried this last night and created the ugliest spaghetti mess you can imagine but quite impressed with how horrific your conveyors can be and it still manages to figure out what you’re trying to interact with. got to the point I was making the red matrix boxes and I was starting to run out of iron at my first area and thought “hang on, you mean I’ve got to build all that shit again at a new area?! How much are you paying me for this?” It would have been interesting to see how much neater I could have done it but I just turned it off instead. Am I missing something obviou
  2. Yeah exactly, get some uniform overlapped lighting and shoot from in between. Phone or that Olympus should both produce good results. What media is she using? I could imagine oils might lend themselves to being lit from one side but I’m really guessing.
  3. No but you could get a couple of decent collapsible neutral tripod lights for 150-200 I’d have thought. I only have a kind of cheap bundle with white/black/green backdrop etc from amazon and honestly I’ve never used it properly but that was maybe £130? e.g. (though out of stock from these UK bods) https://www.wexphotovideo.com/interfit-f5-two-head-fluorescent-lighting-kit-1579703/
  4. What does she want to do with the photos? If the end result doesn’t need to be printed and hung, and is just for web viewing, 8MP is fine. Suspect she might do better with some good lighting to bring out the colours and texture of the pieces?
  5. Only had a chance for a quick play this evening but oh my god, things have moved on a bit since I got my 30D, haven’t they. Speed of the AF on that STM lens, and the image stabilisation! I got a totally usable 4 second handheld exposure, just sticking my head out the front door and doing a quick test shot.
  6. I finally plucked up the courage to order one from these guys today. Thanks. Was all for getting one from a UK stockist but they CANNOT get bloody EF to R adapters and I've waited months. Hope their commitment of no additional import fees really works or it could get painful. I can use EF-S lenses on this too, right (cropped of course) because there's no risk of hitting any mirror with the back of it? Only got one but it's my biggest zoom and until I invest in an EF or RF I'll probably need to use it.

    Can I just suggest that Bezier is very good. A bargain at £7 on Steam.
  8. I think I've seen all the endings now. I didn't want to do the whole thing again as I'd rinsed every mission over about 150 hours so I just kept reloading the critical choice towards the end. There's one which is clearly my favourite but they're all worth seeing. Now I need to start again as a woman just to see how it changes things. Still not getting it on with you know who though. I like my men with two eyes.
  9. Harriet (2019) 5 / 5 Story of an incredible woman.
  10. Your Name (2016, Makato Shinkai) 5/5 breathtaking. Watched his later movie, Weathering with you, a few days ago. That was beautiful but didn’t hang together that well and had a bit too much childish anime weirdness around sexuality even for a movie about the intensity of first love. This on the other hand, is close to perfect.
  11. @ZOKThe video I saw about this said it was too expensive. Did you have to pay for Cyberpunk on top of paying for the service as virtualised hardware?

    It certainly seems to have changed pace a little since then
  13. That impossible boxing match people were talking about, was that the Pro guy (I've won that one after many attempts) or the one after?
  14. Noted for next playthrough ! Was so keen to finally get somewhere I could save after doing most of that section 3 times I didn't dare.
