Lol if Toops downloads 3d builder (free) then he can do whatever the heck he wants, I can't get the export to work but i'm sure he could figure it out,it's good fun, especially on craggy faces.

Nothing tangible, really.

Derek is uncharacteristically silent on Twitter and here.

Beer is needling Sandi on Twitter about their whitewash of Donutgate on YouTube. (It's still in their Twitch archive, for the moment.)

AtV was predictably awkward and boring. But the discussion of the upcoming in-game stores got a great deal of attention during the Austin segment.

They showed a Star Marine running on a PG planet that wasn't really. It's working in-engine, which means crap all for when it might see release. SataBall, Star Marine, Jump Gates, PG landings -- half the real action is in the in-engine footage that gets thrown away or quietly buried.

Otherwise steady state. ELE remains unconfirmed but Derek promises we will see signs soon.

Depends on what you mean by "photoshop effects".
It's converted from RAW, using Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw (not sure which anymore, can't remember - amounts to same, really).

It's not an in-camera JPEG.
No one sane shoots in-camera JPEGs.

I know absolutely nothing about photography outside of jpegs being lovely quality. What i meant was, was the picture taken and then just converted without running it through filters for that effect minus converting to a jpeg?

The picture just looks incredible. I love the way the colors pop on it, especially when i looked at it with my S7 edge's super amoled screen. I wish i could photography :(

jpegs use a lossy compression algorithm (although you can run it as a loss less), meaning that it will add artifacts to an image. Halo and ringing effects, most people would not really see them and as such its fine for most people who just shoot photo's on your phone or even just for fun. But if you are going to do any post effects or editing you don't want those artifacts, if you are going to print really large formats you don't want to have them either. Because most random images a person will take will contain a "messy" random pattern those artifacts are "hidden". Jpegs are really bad at high frequency transitions, for instance text on a page, going from white to black is high frequency content and as such jpegs really screw them up. But in any case unless you are a pro/simi pro photographer, or you are going to do image processing on the image jpegs are just fine.

no, it just depends on what you are doing and how you use it. Most quality cameras are not compressing the data that much, so depending on the content of the image you are talking, you will not even see the compression artifacts introduced. If you don't shot jpeg you will be shooting in raw (its not really raw, but meh stupid companies), this means that you will not have any lighting effects or compensations, producing a lesser visual quality image unless you spend the time in an image editor to adjust the light spectrum. Something that most people will not want to do, and some times its just not worth doing.

Edit: if you move past cameras and into the world of the PC, then you are better off saving in PNG (one of the better lossless image compression algorithms), so that you do not introduce even more artifacts into the image you are messing with. Just try saving a jpeg (as a jpeg) over and over again, and it will look like really crap over time (unless you have it set up to be loss less jpeg)

... the gently caress? I read through the whole of that page and two things struck me:
1) That had nothing to do with what was being discussed.
2) More worryingly, no one responded to it. Are they that used to the nutbar randomly spouting about chemtrails that it doesn't even register any more?
