View Full Version : DVD Menu - Saw (Greek Version)
since I don't really have that much free time to make my own projects I
decided to post what I did at work :wave:
for those who saw the movie "Saw", you'll maybe remember this place,
btw the movie rocks (I saw "Saw" at least 10 times :crazy: )
for some copyright reasons (and mainly because the Greek DVD didn't came
out yet) I cannot post any rendered/composited videos so I post 2 stills
with some light post on it, I hope you like this one and please
share what is bothering you about the picture. C&C are very welcome!
I wanted a really cold atmosphere.. well enough talk:
modelling with 3dsMax7.5 and rendered with VRay 1.47, texture with photoshop,
each textures are about 3000*3000 (lots of unwrapped object in here :wall: )

when looking at the wireframe, its truly amazing what you did with the textures!
almost everything looks great, only the blood pool looks a lil jagged (maybe add a meshsmooth to it? you would need to chamfer the upper edge for this to work, just a thought)

Textures look great, modeling is good, the scale of everthing dosent seem right though. The sinks look like they would be at someones knees.

Looks really nice. Would make a great Video Game Environment. How many Polys?

The blood looks very fake imo, Sort it out and itll be perfect imo
thank you all for your comments I really appreciate :wave:
Psistorm: yes the blood pool gave me some difficulties to make it looks like
a real one, I left it very sharpen at the top edges because in the DVD we
never get closed to it that much to be abble to see details, and if I remember
right I didn't had that much time at the end (I had to render in a hurry as usual :smug: )
I agree with you that i could make it better.
DeadlyFreeze: yeah that was another difficulty in this scene, the only
references I had was the digibeta to check every corners showed during the movie,
I tried to spot the height and size of each object by counting a number of
squares on the wall, and in some shots you can actually see that the sinks
height are below the waist of the characters :eek:
inveni0: haha it started to make me remember silenthill dirty rooms
when I had finished with texturing, the polycount isn't that low by the way
it's about 174.000 polygons (many faces due to some displacement)
Blind-Future: yeah this is absolutely right (I didn't though that it was
that hard to make real looking blood pool) but as I said because of the distance
of it in the DVD I didn't had to give that much attention to it (and I also couldn't
loose precious time trying to perfect it)
another thing I would like to change is to implement more details on the ground (little plate chunks and others) but I (then again) didn't have time
to make it exactly as I wanted to.
the frame render time for the final sequences were an average of 7mn
(I used precaculated Irradiance map to prevent flickering/ shadows artifacts)
thank you for your C&C!
ps: when I'll have some more freetime I'll tweak the blood to make it looks better :haha:

Ahhh... saw, ****** hilariouse movie. I laughed all the way through, my sides hurt so much it was unbearable. I wonder why everyone in the cinema was looking at me funny :dunno:
Nah i'm kidding evryone was laughing, i was kinda concerned, but it actually was funny :D
21-09-2005, 03:02 PM
Nice, really nice. Love how you did with the textures. But must agree with DeadlyFreeze.
Keep it up.
Vozzza: haha you are not the only one who didn't like this movie, for me
I dunno, I got fed up with splatter/gore/no history but loud sounds to scare
audience movies. This one was a really good surprise for me, I really enjoyed
the fact that the end is so unpredictable.
most of all I've seen so much loosy horror movies at work, this one makes me
really enjoying doing this menu ;)
Novak: thanks! well I surely did some out of proportions object but this
room setup is so weird (look at the switch on the reference, so high) I was thinking
at the beginning that it was a children school bathroom (low toilets/sinks) but
at the other end the mirror is very high as the switcher.. odd doesn't it? :haha:
here is a reference snapshot, maybe you'll spot other mistakes I did.
thanks again for your C&C I really appreciate!

from the 1st time i saw this image(without seeing the description/title) my mind says this looks like the scene in the SAW movie..
amazingly its true :D
keep it up! i love this movie...

Actually, your pics are very clean compared to the movie's. I always wondered why they never complained about the smell from the dead guy, but at the end I understood.
siregar: :dance: haha! I'm really glad you recognize it at the first look,
it means you also watched this movie more than once :haha:
inveni0: :haha: well actually they are complaining in the beginning,
Adam said "What's that smell?" when it was still dark, then he understood
why (but there were also a toilet near him full of liquid stuff :hmm: )
the ground is also very clean compared to the movie (I wish I had more time
to make it dirtier)

It's nice..but i hated that movie :p
15-11-2005, 05:12 PM
Awesome job. Very close to the actual set. I liked the movie alot, and I have also watched it more than once. It has to be one of the best ever horror movies. Good job once again.
Thanks a lot! (old thread back from the dead :haha: )
Master_Blaster: it's funny cause the opinions are really divided on this
one, some friends loved it and others didn't liked it at all. I found it more close
to reality than other B movies I'm doing lately btw :haha: thanks for the comment
I appreciate :D
Track_Maniac:Are you ready for the sequel? I'm quite afraid with sequels
usualy it's not as good as the first one but I still have hope on this one :D
normally I'll make the sequel movie DVD too (well I hope if everything goes
as it should) maybe once again it'll be in 3d :)
the only thing I hope is that it won't be a splatter (hope it'll keep the wise
way the killer acts and trap victims)
thanks a lot ;)

I've seen Saw 2 already, I saw it two weeks ago actually. It was really good too, a little bit different from Saw, but still really good.
I hope you get time to make the sets for that movie too, because that would be so awesome. Good luck.
Wooow lucky you! ;)
here it only says Coming soon in the theatres (I think it's for this month)
I hope too that we will make again a 3d menu, it's much more interesting :D
I'm happy that you aren't disapointed with the sequel, I guess now I have
to wait a little bit :D
16-11-2005, 02:22 AM
OMG! I saw the movie 2 weeks ago and it realy felt scary when I saw your render. And then means you nailed it!! And I have to say I like your render more than I liked the movie, though. Awsome. Great work!
16-11-2005, 06:39 AM
Can you put some screenshots from the movie so we can compare? thx
16-11-2005, 07:01 AM
Yea thats pretty nice, textures are amazing except I agree that the pool of blood looks a bit too jagged. And I agree, Saw was a great movie! Saw 2 was incredibly better than the first!!
ps-Where's the green "X" marks the spot
Thans a lot for your replies :haha:
Carolina: I really appreciate your kind words :shy:
CriTiCeRz: sure here some snapshots I found on Google
the 3d isn't the exact same thing but I tried to make it looks as close
as I could (without exceeding the amount of time we had)
Makaveli: :haha: I have to show you the settings submenu where
we see the X on the corner blinking :haha: I'll try to post snapshots from
the DVD menu (now that it's out I think I no longer have problem)
I wish I could make the blood pool better :dunno: I never though it was
that difficult to be honest :haha:
once Saw2 is in the theatres here I'll go to see it, I'm very curious of what
new they could do without erasing the atmosphere of the first one!
Thanks again for your kind words I really appreciate :D
