ASUS P5Q Pro Motherboard
« on: April 20, 2009, 01:09:32 pm »

Well, it's been awhile since I last did anything with Anim8or, and there happened to be a competition at CGN so I though why not, I've done a bit more work after the first our of modeling.

Points: 13016
Edges: 22552
Faces: 10060
Runs without lag actually, most of the points come from the heatsinks.

Hey Tanzim

very nice...

Maybe a smidge more thickness in the board itself, and how about a bumpmap and a spec map to bring out the "solders",

spec map to add some highlight on those parts

Apart from that, that vertical line of brown things on the bottom left don't look as real as the rest of the render

Jehovahenker: Nice, I have 1 to, to bad I only have a Dual-Core instead of a Quad, and thanks but I don't think I'll be making a whole computer, I have a few other projects that I started over a year ago that I want to finish first :(.

Mr. Becker: Thanks, don't worry, there are hundreds of other chips out there.

headwax: Yeah, the board does look like a single polygon, and I'll see if I can create a specular map. There's already already a bumpmap on it which I used for the transistors and IC's that were just too small to make a difference (personal opinion).
For the vertical line, do you mean the heatsink or the SATA ports?

----------
I'll see if I can make this a bit more realistic, maybe by changing the angle of the camera and the lighting. I'm also going to add a bumpmap to the top of the RAM, PCI and PCIe ports.

It's a shame spec maps dont affect the reflection attribute.. it wouldve been nice to see the result if thatd been possible..

Nice work so far though Tanzim! very realistic indeed (except the anim8or floor haha). Keep it up!

Adding support for textures in the specular channel for reflection is a good idea.  I've added it to "the list".

Thanks Steve, you are a good fellow! It's great how you keep working on anim8or.

Tanzim

these things circled, I think it's cause the insides are so black and have no definition makes them look at odds with the rest of the render

Sorry don't know what they are called

Nice board Tanzim!, BTW they`re SATA inputs, No Processor or Heatsink Fan or can`t you afford it yet?

$imon: thanks, guess we'll be waiting for the next update eh? And to be honest, most of the realism comes from texture, not my modeling.

headwax: I see what you mean, I'm not too sure how to overcome this, but I am thinking of just creating semi-transparent materials, although that would mean render time would be huge.

kreator: I was thinking of just modeling the mobo, because I have a few the projects that I want to get out of the way. Maybe once I finish those, I'll come back to this. BTW: There aren't any fans for the heatsinks, there is a fan over the processor and graphics card etc, though.

Anyways, the newest render has textured ports, and capacitors. I've put the camera at a different angle to see if that would cure the problem headwax mentioned, as you can see it didn't :-[.
