Running of the Leaves [SFM] by argodaemon Running of the Leaves [SFM] by argodaemon
Decided to try out this picture making thing. Who doesn't like a sunset? ;)

There was no post-editing done after the picture was taken. This is straight from SFM. Want to see it with just ponies and no modifications? [link]

Uses Nahka's Pony Overhauls: [link]

Map used: ttt_forest_final_hdr
The location I filmed Excuses [link] is technically about 15 feet behind them.

Awesome work of this sweetest moment and gives a lot of inspiration.
I tried to combine all the learned techniques to show my love on this scene, and this is it:

I don't remember where I got it originally, and some updates in SFM broke it, so it doesn't really work right.

So epic... That is one of my favorite moments in any episode ever. Absolutely loved the ending of that episode.
Thank you for making this!

There was multiple lights used for the scene. One for the sun (which is waayyyy far back), 1 for each pony to help illuminate edges, and one for each tree (4-5 total; I think one is hidden). Finding the best places for all the lights was probably the most time consuming of the entire picture.

For some reason, neither can I. :( Found the non-HD version, but that kills the SFM pretty. I may have to look into it a bit. If no luck, I will try to figure out which files it uses and make a pack for you. ^^

Odd, whenever I go to render a poster it never ever captures the bloom.
Is this an updated version or a plugin?

This would save me from doing too much photoshopping.
Please share.

There was no plugins. I exported as just an image .PNG. I used about 8 lights to get the total effect and didn't touch the bloom much. This is my first attempt at a detailed photograph in SFM, so don't really have a technique. :/ Just pointed the camera and said "Oh, dat pretty :3"
