Hi everyone,

I just wanted to share a few images from a rendering created using the "Ando" model available from the SU Podium website. I have only made a few changes to the model itself, adding in some shadow lines along the base of the floor, stairs, etc. Adjusting some texture positioning and qualities. And of course adding in the fall tree and stones on the ground level. 
This was mostly an exercise in improving my post processing workflow, of which there was quite a bit, especially on the ground level shot.

As always criticism is welcome.
cheers

Indeed really good! the texturing is on spot!

 

the only thing that caught my eye is the pebbles on the 1st one, and maybe the tree itself maybe a high poly tree would be better for the proximity of the views?

Thanks for the comments!

Yes, the pebbles were tricky, since the texture is a 2D image the flatness is amplified when foreshortened. I tried to adjust for this in pp, doing an inverse extrude filter and multiplying it as well as adding a high contrast overlay layer to amplify the highlights a bit.
Any other suggestions (especially how to tackle this in the rendering phase) would be appreciated. I don't remember what the bump setting was, I will have to go back and look it up.

The tree comes from the podium browser, excuse my ignorance, but are there higher poly trees in the browser? Or should I just try to find one in the 3d warehouse?

Best,

T

I would try 3d pebbles (it will impact render time, if time is not an issue, leave it overnight and in the morning you will have it)

and for the tree, yes they are higher poly trees but in the podium browser, do you have a license? if not, I strongly recommend you to have it (ready to render in podium)

before rendering just put the materials of the leaves (tree) like 93% opacity and you are ready to go

These are really lovely images! They have a lovely dramatic photographic quality about them [smile]

Andres, yes I do have the license for the podium browser (totally worth it, great value IMO) I just didn't realize there were high and low poly versions of the trees! [rolleyes] I rarely use vegetation so that's my excuse!
I will give the 3-D pebbles a try, any sources you would recommend? I know there are some in the warehouse but not sure of the quality, especially when it comes to any kind of texture on that kind of object.

Thanks bigstick, that is a very high compliment from you!

Photosculpt can do this, but there is a Sketchup plugin for it here

I haven't tried it, so it would be interesting to see if it works.
