Ground Vehicle: Turntable

Ground Vehicle from Jaetaek Hwang on Vimeo.

No GI,
No final gathering.

Sometimes, using those rendering technologies make the final renders look in less quality.
I will say, "Simple is the best!"

Nuke: Z-depth

This is a screen shot showing how Nuke works with a sequence of Z-depth render with a beauty render. If you have two separated renders, beauty and z-depth, you need to plug the z-depth render into a z-channel with a shuttle or shuttle copy node. Then your sequence files will have rgba and z channel in one node to be good for z-blur node.
Green color - in focus, Blue - closer, Red - further.

Shading! Shading!

Shading is always fun, at the same time, it is really hard job.
During this work, I mostly focused on surface materials rather than painted textures.
I used Maya Mental ray as a renderer for this project. I really miss using renderMan.
RenderMan is still too expensive to use for personal purpose.
What is the best renderer? I will say,
RenderMan > Vray > Mental Ray.
That's right. I am using third best one now. Sad....
