DISCRIPTION
X_FRIDGE is a realtime environmental visualization project with some parameters to change the overall view like the abiliity to add fog or change the camera FOV and also some post effects like Distortion, Bloom, Paint, etc that are applied in real time. Next all of them will be describe in detail.
This is my first serious realtime project and my purpose was to get more familiar with realtime word and also get in professional to work with quest3d. Another purpose was to achive a higher level of realism.It was very challenging to me, because there are some limitations in the realtime content. And also it's not like software render.


DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
Modeling and designing have been done in maya and the realtime frame work application has been Quest3d. For texturing I use a combination of maya and photoshop.To export a mesh in x format from maya to quest3d I used the okino polytransfer plugin. To generate a normal map I used NVIDIA Normal Map Filter Plugin. All the light bakeing processes are done by mental ray stand alone and there is no dynamic shadow or light in a final result.
