View Full Version : 3d turntable w/ finalRender

07-23-2005, 07:39 PM
trying to get a much more realistic look (despite the temporary background + photoshop glow in this).

The toon-shaded one is complete, I am very happy with it, and will probably use it for a few things, but the other version I am really trying to get a photorealistic look.

Specifically, I am trying to get the metal bumps on the platter (which is a high-res photoshop image, tiled) to reflect raytrace, and put a glow on the green lights. I tried using a self-illuminating material on the lights, and then adding a glow effect, but no luck.

I'm almost 2 months into 3d so i fumble around, but I am developing techniques and etc.

3dsmax 7 + finalRender stage-1 + finalToon (+photoshop)

The little thingies on the outside of the turntable are used to judge the speed of it, and are spaced at different intervals for each level so you can tell how fast you are going.

Standard is -33% 0% and +33% (i think) so they should have similar sort of gapping.

Everything else looks good tho, the surface of the main body looks ok to so shouldnt have any problems when you render it out!

thanks, the little "nubs" were taken from a photo of my turntable, but i had a hard time lining it up to tile, so I had to alter it a little bit. as long as the seam isnt obvious, i think they look decent. I may try to get the gapping closer to real-life after the texturing is finished.

and its not 33%, it's 35rpm and 45rpm with +/- 10% for the pitch control on the right.

3.33 0 3.33 6.66%, i think again im not too sure i havent used any decks for a few months but i remember that they werent the same distance. ANYWAY i know the 33 45 rpm difference, but enough arguing, its a good looking model, good luck getting a decent metal effect for the shell of the base (if you go for that) because its stupidy hard.

N dont forget to have a CGT (er society, thats so lame anyway) logo on the turntable deck!

hah will do! I have created an sp1200, sp303 and this turntable.

next I plan on a mixer, and a very detailed MPC2000XL. I am creating models for an animated series I am creating with 3dsmax / AE / Moho / lots more stuff.

any good tips / links on getting that brushed metal look?
