About Real World Bryce 2

About Real World Bryce 4
(widely advertised as Real World Bryce 3D)

Real World Bryce 2: The Art of the Digital Landscape,
an update of the Computer Press Award-winning The KPT Bryce
Book,
is a completely rewritten book covering Bryce 2 for both the
Macintosh and Windows platforms. (read what others have said about the
first book here.)

It covers all of Bryce 2’s features in depth. The book features a comprehensive
explanation of the Deep Texture Editor. (MetaCreations’, um Corel’s DAZ 3D’s own software docs
for the DTE in Bryce 3D/Bryce 4 are based upon the work in my book.)

You’ll find explanations, tutorials, illustrations, why-it-doesn’t-work-that-way
discussion of Brycean anomalies.

On top of that, there’s a CD-ROM filled with resource scenes, software,
slide shows, animations, and a gallery of images from all over the world
featuring the work of over 80 Bryce artists!

Here’s a FAQ on the book (both books, actually)
that grew out of the email queries I received during the time I was writing
it.

About this site

Formerly “All Things Bryce” this site is home to the professional consulting business of Susan A. Kitchens, AuntiAlias & Associates.

What is AuntiAlias, anyhow?

AuntiAlias is a pun on the word antialias. In computer graphics, anti-aliasing is the process of adding what seems to be blurry in-between pixels to smooth the image so it won't appear so "jaggy." The pun came about in the early days of Bryce, the 3D landscape software. Bryce's final rendering pass is anti-aliasing. On the software's support boards, I'd sign my posts as "Auntie Alias." I thought, "Hey, I'll make that into a screen name!" The 10-character limit resulted in this spelling you see here: auntialias.
