Finished another panel! Yeah! Most of it was done in Bryce 4 because it is so bloody easy to create outdoor terrains. But I forgot how difficult it is to move between objects in a scene. There are tools to move between object types (Terrains or spheres etc) and objects within those groups (sphere1 and sphere2). But if you have a grouped object, like a tree or a spaceship, then it doesn't work well at all.
Another problem I found is that if you are trying to create realistic smoke using one of the volume materials, the material seems to stick to the mesh like a normal texture. Well more than you would think it should. I gave up after fiddling with random meshes and the volume settings and just airbrushed it in Photoshop.
