This is my first fotorealistic attempt.
What do you think?

I'd say that's a messy and garish table you've pointed your camera at! Very nice, and especially for a first effort.

It's cool.

Another attempt.

hey, show us the working end of the key...and what was your address again...? :p

Good work there. Looks totally real to me.

Looks good. The keys look the best i think. The only thing that looks off is the black cord to the cd player. Too black in some places, needs more specualar towards the back. Did you use radiosity? Can we see a wire?

03-03-2004, 01:47 PM
OK, it all looks a bit 'off' to me. I'll wait for the wireframes I believe...

03-03-2004, 02:08 PM
:rolleyes: Yeah, well, it looks totally real to me.

I was very tired didn't sleep for many hours and I missed the ending of a cord which in my opinion should be done differently. I'm going to create new better scene and show how I do it. It may not be the same way most of the people do... But it works...
Here is the wire I maid just in case you would ask for 1st image.

After looking at it again, im guessing the only thing cg is the black cord.
EDIT: Your post got there before mine. I figured the rest was a pic. Pretty good job though with the compositing.

LOL I just woke up and I was re-reading you messages :) LOLs
Everything except minijack is a picture.. Sorry for misunderstanding. :(


03-03-2004, 03:32 PM
So if you guys want I can tell you how I composed. I'm not sure it is the right way thou.


03-03-2004, 03:36 PM
Ehehe I thought it looked pretty damn photorealistic :D

Yah the fact that you didn't mention it was a composite test was kinda confusing.

Wonder how the photo looked "off" Mikeface :D

For sure :)

lol, i was gonna say the nut shells look a little off, but i guess they're real, it's funny how we can find flaws in reality when we think it's cg. Nice job on comp though.

nice touch with the reflection on the cd player-
next time it would be nice to know whats rendered and whats not:)

03-04-2004, 12:56 AM
goooood job 8.... a bit disapointed... as I thought all was CG....:( ;)

03-04-2004, 02:11 AM
I would be disappointed myself :) Thanks for replies.
I want to try to create a whole scene with cg. However I don't have much knowledge about certain things hehe. We wait we see :)


03-07-2004, 11:11 PM
wow i first thought that all was cg and i was really surprised, but then i saw the image and it was compositing, but is really good , keep up the good work it would be very interesting seeing a whole scene made by you :)

03-08-2004, 04:00 PM
My earlier comments were regarding the fact that your post was quite clearly a photograph. :)

Now I see you have clarified things, I have to say you did a nice compositing job. The reflection on the CD player looks a little funny though...

03-08-2004, 06:58 PM
:) It is no problem...
THe reflection on the CD however is a photograph as well :)
To place minijack more precisly I took 2 pictures, 1 with the real minijack which gave reflection and second is without. I used 1st picture to place modeled minijack into place and then I switch background image to the minijack without. Reflection were added later in photoshop :) I will try to create a CG photorealistic picture once I will be able to model difficult objects.. If you have any links to places where I can find help with different techniques of modelling difficult objects, or just helpfull modelling tips, that would be nice...
