recent illustration

I finished this a few months ago but haven't had a chance to post it. This was use for a print ad in a trade publication. The art direction was a sleek, sophisticated vibe. I looked at Jaguar, Lexus and Infinity for inspiration. Rendered from 3ds with VRay. The post work was done in PhotoShop CS3.

basic compositing with 3ds

A question came from the 3d user's group today asking about basic compositing with 3ds and Photoshop. I posted earlier about Scene States and Batch Rendering (SEE IT HERE) but thought I would put together a scene with states and batch setup. Plus I included a .psd with the passes comped. Restore each state and it should be straight forward how this system works. Scene states are critical for batch!!!! This system work really well for me. you will find SCENE STATES under TOOLS and BATCH under RENDERING.

This does not cover compositing elements, just scene geometry passes. I am planning to demo my pipeline next meeting.

Hope you find this useful Jay!
