I often don’t know exactly what I’m rendering or how it works or how it will be used. I certainly have never seen one of these things. I’ve heard it referred to as a “cartridge”, and that’s about all I know. I’m pretty sure the real cartridge shell is not transparent – I’ll bet it’s boring white – but I assume the person who will be presenting this image to the boss will want to say something about how it works, so I rendered it this way.
BTW, I know my 3D work may not be that exciting to regular visitors to thedude.com, but to me this is stuff is even more thrilling than my photographs, so I’m sharing it whether you like it or not. So there.
