I've finally got sign-off on the latest dive map for Xploredive - SS Yongala.

As with all my main projects I've added a brief overview of what was involved on the website: http://www.eggboxstudios.co.uk/news/40-recentprojects/80-yongala

On the technical side of things, Lightwave was used throughout with HD instance used to add the coral. I actually rendered two different versions of the coral covered ship and blended them in Photoshop for simplicity. The survey data was converted in Accutrans by Micromouse himself...thanks again for that!

A very good job turning that survey data into a model and rendering.

The point data was mostly used as reference to line up the constructed ship and get the wreckage and seabed placed correctly.

On your brief overview of the project, I liked your comment that you would have still been scratching your head without the radar data of the wreck.
