3D Composite Render ‘Le Cafe’
As a group, create a realistic render of a place where people can eat or have coffee in. The location must be inside Duthie park, Aberdeen and include a terrace with tables and chairs.
I proposed the location to the team, and we discussed the design of the restaurant. Before getting stuck in, we visited the local competition. Floor plans were quickly sketched out and we came to an agreement on the styling. To avoid overlap, I allocated tasks and goals to team members.
I used a mix of spline and box modelling to create my contribution of the models. I created all the furniture including the bar as well as the different types of glasses. The models were textured using bitmaps with a mix of multi and standard materials
Render Passes and Post Processing
Individual render passes were completed using Mental Ray and were then composited using Photoshop. Some adjustments were needed such as darkening the shadows. A blur was then applied to the far windows using a layer mask and the Z depth render.
