mostly I use MentalRay or Renderman but mentalray is little bit slower than that. Maybe many of people hate its render time. =P
Octane renders based on GPU which sounds like my 8800GT is classic now. jeez...i am going to try Octane Render right now! see yah! kkk

Open Maya 2009.

This file work in Maya 2009??.. I have option "Ignore Version" activated.

The file open, the problem is saved, when i saved maya told me "File contains unknown nodes or data" and no saved. I apply "optimized scene", but don't fix the problem.

1. open (file type:mayaAscii, Check:Execute Script nodes, Ignore Version)

2. Optimize Scene Option Box :
- Check: NURBS surface + curves, Sets, Partitions, Transforms, Display layers, Render layers, Animation curves, Deformers, Unused kin influences, GroupID nodes, Rendering nodes, Constraints, Pair blends, Snapshot nodes, Unit conversion nodes, Referenced items, Brushes, Unknown nodes

3. Optimize.

4. Export All Option Box: File type-mayaBinary,
- Check: Default file extensions, Preserve references.

5. Open

6. Enjoy it!

Hey there! I wanted to bunk this challenge but I couldn't resist it!
Here is a rough paintover to nail the lighting. I've always wanted to do one such with a lot of blues and yellows.


This is where I've got so far. Concentrating only on the porch at the moment.


I used blender for this. So far it's one point light and it's bounces.


Timothy.

Thanks for the crits arusnak. here's an update with some more texturing and adjusting colors..still ways to go.

Hey all,

I've been a long time listener to the Lighting Challenge Thread, but with this challenge, I think I will have to throw my hat into the mix. In my next posting I should have some progress for you guys. Stay tuned...

Me as well, doodlerboy.

Took me decent amount of time cleaning up my .ma file after importing .obj. The geometry was grouped in a funky way which i didn't really understand, i used the "Separate Cmd" to organize the scene into neat individual geometries and deleting nodes from hypershade.

if somebody could tell me & anybody else out there whose having the same issue a more efficient or proper method of doing it, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

color and value paintover

Rendered a frame. Liked it, but needed to paintover again so it would integrate better with
the original concept and finally figure out my palette using PaletteBox.
