Just to chime in here - trying out the FBX, neither 3ds MAX (not sure which version, it wasn't me) nor LightWave were able to import that file into a form at all resembling the original image...

I hope to have some more file formats in another day or two, when I get the Polytrans license I ordered and can start exporting more formats with that. I'm hoping that'll make a lot of people happier.

Sounds great.

hi
i think your output looks quite flat maybe adding some nice shadows would make it look pretty amazing may be if you could get some skylight or maybe some spacelight it would look really cool

Of course thanks as always to Jeremy and Juan! Here's a couple critiques:

visua: Always the overachiever by posting first ...Great work already! I really like the metallic shader on the robot. There seems to be an arc of light on the ground right underneath the robot, I'm not sure what it is. I look forward to more progress!

Leotril: Good to see you again and good start as always. For your antialiasing did you change both your min and max antialiasing samples? How about using different or larger antialiasing filtering? If you still can't figure it out the only thing I could suggest is rendering large with no antialising then scaling your image down while using your photo editing packagings resizing filter.

phil-w8: Good start, I like the character of the robot! Your lighting on the walls seems very flat and inconsistent with the ceiling. Maybe you could try to use more lights of lower intensities from different angles. Try comparing the light of the right wall with the light on the right side of the robot. Keep it up!

I hope to be able to post soon!

Take 1

I have been watching these challenges for a long while now, and I finally have the time, and basic familiarity with the programs to participate in one. Couldn't have picked a better challenge either, I'm have a blast playing around with this scene, and am really excited to work with all of you.

Here is my first take, still very rough, and early on, but wanted to get post my early progress in to make sure I was on the right track.
