That looks VERY nice but it looks like your render is having some anti-aliasing issues

veryyyyyyyyyy coooooooool merc............which tooll u used to make the merc........:bounce:

Looks sweet! Kick the AA up a notch....

Thats frikin awesome. The only problem i see like everyone else is the anti aliasing, it only bothers me on the chrome rims and on the mirror, makes it look not real. It just blows me away when people do cars to this level. I wouldnt even know how to start. You use patches or nurbs or what?

09-29-2002, 07:22 PM
it looks very sweet indeed but its so dark....

putting things like license plates and stuff (which i guess are on your to-do list anyway) will lighten up all the dark metal... and have a look at the rear / brake (???) lights.... instead of red they are rather black as well...

the grill upfront should be visible as well, instead its just another black hole.

try to play some more with the light boxes... since your model and the material itself looks awesome, but unfortunately they get left rather in the dark

license plate would be a good idea in my opinion in the fact that you could give your own little tag or name on your piece of work like your signature

With low AA and Subpatch level 1

It is good to see someone who actually takes the time to model the disk brakes. The car looks great! I only wish I could afford to drive one.

"I used to get no play now she stay behind me
Cause I said I had a Benz 190"

That's for all you NWA/Icecube fans out there.

looks cool...:thumbsup:

that compisit shot is quite impressive. You even got the reflections down pat. Good model, can't spot anything wrong with it.

Nice job... Prepare render

10-05-2002, 12:55 PM

Is it wright?

Bye and congratulations

Cool stuff ! :thumbsup:
About AA problem in first imajes ( in the radiator grid panel). Try to use 'Limit Dynamic Range' on the Image Processing panel. If u use HDRI images, adding this option will normalize image to 32 bit . If u not using HDRI - still try this option , it's mast help.
Good luck.

Dude, have u used the rear of a 500SL Mercedes? Because it looks like that. My dad has a 190E and the back don't look like that, please reply if u have modified it, or better still can you please post the referance images, i really would like to c them:rolleyes:

12-19-2002, 11:37 PM
ya man, the back of the 190e CERTAINLY don't look like that. this guys definitely used two different mercs as ref. anywayz, but his modeling is AMAZING. you have to give him credit... and as for the goof up, consider it a personal modification by him. Lets all just appreciate good modeling here, eh ? cheers.:beer: :buttrock: :airguitar :thumbsup: :surprised

Good model...in the render the cars diffusion needs to be turned down though if you ask me....it looks "too composited" if that makes any sense...I don't know quite how to word it...hopefully you understand....:thumbsup:

12-20-2002, 04:36 AM
i thought merc's were bigger?
do to the perception, wouldn't the car appear bigger than the neon anyways? it is close to the viewer

12-20-2002, 05:28 AM
k now, put a Evo II kit on it :)

12-20-2002, 08:23 AM
no crits from me, the model looks prefect, good work man. :applause:

12-20-2002, 11:29 PM
no not to hit u up but the rendeers dont seem to prject a realistic fell to me also the compsiting pic is well done but please work on the textures of the car and refection maps cuz it seems outta place... neon seems to big too

yea other than that the models great and u did a wonderfull job jsut more tweakin is all

hey did u use radiosity or simulated lighting scinse ur in light wave (cuz thats waht iuse) just wonder (again great job)

12-21-2002, 05:21 AM
nice model, and a good composite. only thing i noticed a bit off were the front indicators...they dont seem to be acting real...no reflections or transparency....

but the final product is looking gr8!
