I suppose that is a possibility. I will see if I can download the educational version.

Missing Textures or Models

If anyone needs any textures that are missing let me know. I have sent most of the textures to Giorgio but optimizing the scene must have deleted some along the way. If some geometry is corrupt let me know as well and I can upload it via dropbox or drive. Cheers!!
All you need is warm and cool.

This challenge is awesome, first try in anything like this

I'm mainly focusing on technical stuff, so comments and suggestions are appreciated, i hope I can get better and learn!
Right now i'm using Cinema 4D R17 with native rendering, later will test physical and Arnold as well. Compositing in Nuke.

Wireframe Coloration

This is probably a trivial thing for most but in case some of you, like me , like to understand why something is colored differently - the wireframe (Display > Wireframe Color) has been set on some objects and on some of the groups.

Unfortunately, global selection of objects to mass reset the wireframe color yields unpredictable results.

V-Ray Polymesh Warnings/Errors

For those using V-Ray, the 'Polymesh' warnings/errors occur when a mesh does not contains UV's. The light bulbs in all of the lamps and flies do not contain UV's ... nothing an Automatic UV Mapping can't resolve.


Happy lighting ...

Hi there! Third time try to just hit render and watch incoming data. But 3dsmax version doesn't updated yet and I can't open it. Import via FBX gives no materials and Maya version loading about a minute, have issues with map path remapping and crash on autosave. Wrrrr....

Sent you a PM.

What are you trying to import the .FBX into? If it's 3DS MAX, keep in mind that there are different generations of .FBX importers/exporters. I used Maya 2015 SP5 FBX exporter and when I re-import in Maya 2015 and/or 3DS MAX 2015, I see the textures.

What version of Maya are you using?

From a new Maya scene, use the File > Set Project option to set the location of the extracted scene; then open the Scene file. I used the default Maya folder structure so you should be able to open the scene without texture file path issues.

As of Maya 2014, they included an option to change the File Paths which can be found under Window > General. You can use that to repoint the scene texture paths elsewhere.

I recommend turning off "Auto Save" or increasing the time between saves to at least 60+ minutes *before* attempting to open the scene ... it's 2.9+ million polys.
