    A few still renderings

    Recent work at Paradigm. The bank used 2d plants placed either as clipmaps in LW or later composited with Photoshop.
    In the small commercial center, 3d models were used for all of the plants.

    Nice work, only the foreground plants in the second picture looks odd. Its hard to focus on that picture especially early in the morning.

    Nice Allen. Did you use Hd instance on the retail render? If so how long did that take to render in Lightwave render engine?

    good works, lighting is pretty nice but imho vegetation in second picture is too saturated - could be intentional though.
    In first picture i dont like asphalt, why dont you try with front projection ? for static pictures nothing can match it.

    bye

    Paolo - I assume you also use front projection with your grass in stills? If so, when a 3D object casts shadows on to it, do you ever notice that the shadows don't fall and rise with the blades/clumps of grass? Only asking as I really like the work on your site and am thinking of using this technique for my next project.

    no problem if you use slightly blurred shadows, and anyway you should go very near to the grass to see this.

    OT question: why the **** this forum takes minutes to show me "quick reply" area ? pages load instantly, but to see this little rectangle i must wait foerver.. anyone ?

    Nice, But

    Stiil #1: There is an odd scale effect from the foreground to background.
    Still #2: The rock wall have too sharpen edges

    Thanks, Michael. Used low poly trees and plants, so no reason to use HD Instance. Fprime renders on both.

    Yeah...probably blurred too much and placed too many into the foreground.

    Thank you Paolo. I've never tried front projection before in this way. I'll give it a try. Great idea.

    Thank you. Not sure what you mean on Still No.1 Could you point me to something specific you're seeing.

    I know what you mean on the rocks. Exported those from Vue5. I need to do a better job at that process.

    I think the stones in the foreground have not a good scale for the picture. They are too focused and too big and people will pay attention too much...

    I really like your renders! I especially like the render of the bank. Good composition and lighting. The scale is spot on as well. The only thing I noticed that may need some tweaking would be the trees in the background. The black level doesn't quite match the buildings. Could be an easy fix in Photoshop. But please take my critique with a grain of salt, I'm just a newbie. :-)

    No problem here.

    Thanks for the headsup on front projection and shadows - I really want to try it on my current project - except it's frosty here at the moment with snow forecast so I'm guessing I'll have to fall back on existing texture maps. Roll on spring!
