View Full Version : Scene: Ominous
21-04-2003, 12:41 AM
A scene which I am using as part of an animation entitled "Entity".
This is a university project intended to market/present a fictional video game, and we are assigned with creating a cut-scene or trailer for the game.
I'd like to work a little more on the lighting but can't really afford the render time more advanced lighting would demand.

another view, using a camera intended to follow the lead character from a third person perspective.
thats a nice idea and the modelling is good but some kind of volume light and dust would make it a lot better

yeah it really would I know, but I can't really afford the render time. Maybe for a few stills just for showing off, but otherwise it's a no go!
It's also a pain to get a volume light looking right.. I'm still pretty new to lighting scenes; in fact to 3d in general.
thanks a lot for your comments.

nice, but i think its a tad too dark, imo
maybe thats the look ur trying to achieve

Looks nice... it's quiet dark tho, so it's hard to see the details, but I tihnk that might change if you animate the scene.
What university are u studying at?

i agree there are definately dark areas, but i'm no expert as far as lighting i concerned. As it stands, I'm happy with the scene (asides from adding the missing doorknobs) and I'm ready to get the animation done.
thanks for the C&C
i'm at teesside uni in the uk, by the way. It has a good reputation for 3d, but otherwise it's awful.

What a coincidence. I got admitted to the Computer game deisgn course at Teesside university last week and I'm planning on going there.
Would you recommened me going there? Or should I hope to get accepted into an other university?

It depends on the kind of person you are. I'm on that same course, and I would recommend it as far as the skills it teaches you (or makes you teach yourself).
Don't believe anything you are told about placements, though. You'll be extremely lucky to get one. Perhaps 5% get them. I didn't.
To be perfectly honest it's your portfolio that counts, so don't worry too much about the degree - take the uni time to learn as much as you can to do what you want, but don't worry about WHERE you study.
My advice is to go to Newcastle and have a great time, enjoy life and meet interesting people instead of coming to probably the most depressing place in the uk for 3 years.
