Title: Hello Everyone :)
Post by: Wizard_gp on April 12, 2013, 09:06:27 pm
Hello,

My name is Mirek and I am from Poland. I use Anim8or for about 10 years, mainly to create models that I later use in other programs for the rendering. I would like to show you some of my work :)

Welcome aboard, Wizard_gp!  Those are excellent examples of what can be done with some relatively simple and easy-to-use tools!  Of course, it doesn't hurt to have a bit of talent, as you obviously do.

 Hello wizard_gp, and welcome.  :)

 I can't think of a better way to comment at the moment, other than to repeat what RudySchneider said:
"Those are excellent examples of what can be done with some relatively simple and easy-to-use tools!  Of course, it doesn't hurt to have a bit of talent, as you obviously do."

  keep up the good stuff.  :)

Hello Wizard,

Those are some nice photo realistic renders.

My friend Josh makes cars as well, but to be used in games. Yours are much more detailed, you can see some of his work here;

He got real mad when Blender dropped the knife tool that he used in that video. I have lost touch with him over time, I guess we both have our own lives to live.

Thank you so much for a such kind words, at the moment I'm working on a video in which I want to include police pursuit for a sports car :)

I would like to use this technique and this model, what do you think?

 Looks great. The car looks very realistic. Awesome job, i would say "go with it".  :)

perspective is off, but other than that it looks good

In this sample I have used still image as the background, on the final project the 3d objects will be over video footage :)

Sorry, but I don't quite understand what you wrote. My first language is not English so if I could ask you to write without abbreviations and slang?

sorry Wizard_gp.
 Was posting in the wrong thread...
  sorry about that...

 I think using real video footage is a good idea.. :)

I changed a little idea. I wanted to use as many 3D objects, but it is terribly time consuming. I've done seven scenes but I'm stuck. I have no ideas for further backgrounds. Maybe you have any idea what I can change it to make it look better?

I agree with Blick Fang - very nice renders on this video. As you're looking for more in-depth critique I'll post my ideas that came to my mind after watching your vid.

- very fast panning when showcasing the car - I wish I'd have a longer while to appreciate the modelling/shape and the reflections
- better studio lighting and maybe show more environment  - putting some concrete textures onto the walls and floor and fluorescent lamps at the ceiling might be sufficient and would exchange that strong gloom of white highlights with some stronger and nicer reflections  of garage
this tutorial is good: http://www.3dm3.com/tutorials/vray_render_studio/index2.php
and this one is great: http://www.3dtotal.com/index_tutorial_detailed.php?id=1656
and here are a threads about rendering cars or about environment maps in general in Anim8or: http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php?topic=4104.0 , http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php?topic=3290.0 , http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php?topic=4175
- I see that you're using compositing software you might have a fun (and beside the fun just a quicker rendertimes from rendering the separate passes) if you wished to make some interesting carpaint materials during the composition http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php?topic=3906
- the first street scene looks great to me, but on the second one the background is imho too much blurred vertically to look like a speed lines

Anyway I envy your car modelling skills ;)
