LC #35: Compositing part I

So.. ---===---===--- DEADLINE for ALL the 4 challenges included in the RULE THEM ALL challenge will be the 31-12-2013 ---===---===---

Dear All
there's a whole bunch of new challenges !
So I'm thinking to reschedule a bit of them. You can choose one of them or try them all !!
Would it be good to have an car rendering to your portfolio ?
You can choose between a Lamborghini or a Pontiac or both of them !
Since this is a compositing challenge use your imagination ! these cars can be toys too !! (or whatever you want !)

As always
Guidelines:
If posting your own rendered images or video of this scene anywhere out of this thread, please credit Giorgio Luciano for the modeling.

  • Use any 3d software and techniques you would like.
  • Changes to the scene are allowed but not required.
  • Post your work in progress by replying to this thread so you can receive feedback
  • Feel free to share any extra information or breakdowns to show your techniques or lighting set-up.
  • Ask questions and give feedback
  • Enjoy yourself!



PONTIAC FBX
PONTIAC OBJ
ROBBY OBJ
ROBBY REFERENCES

The DEADLINE for ALL the 4 challenges included in the RULE THEM ALL challenge will be the 31-12-2013 The End of the Year.

IF YOU WANT TO GIVE A TRY NOT TO ALL FOUR CHALLENGE YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO POST YOUR FINAL IMAGES IN THE FINAL INDIVIDUAL THREADS BEFORE 31st DECEMBER !!! YOU WON'T RUN FOR THE GRAND PRIZE BUT YOU WILL BE REWARDED IN SOME WAY

sorry for my negative input
but the lamborghini looks terrible.

is this a modelling challenge?
as the part with the highest poly count are the tires:
53k polys each tire
2,5k for the main part of the chassis

i wouldnt use this model even for a backplate

kind regards

Aventador ? Don't think so !

Sorry for the point guys, but the Lambo looks terrible !!!
Can't be useful for a challenge !! And if it seems to look at the Aventador, we are far far away of an Aventador !!
The Pontiac's great BTW.

Yeah the lambo is not good, the other one is much better but there s a fair bit of problem with it.
Anyway I did a quick render for fun.
I m not sure if that s the right place where to post, let me know and I ll move it, cheers.

HI-RES

Probably my fault I didn't check the fbx export and I had meshsmooth applied to make a closeup
BTW you can see a rendering at my website
http://www.collectivedream.net/
it doesn't look too bad.
and it doesn't look like aventador because it's Reventon !

Sorry Giorgio, no offense for the model. And yes, i just took a look super fast for the lambo.
Still even yours renders are beautiful on the lambo, is there any possibilities to have another export ?

I was also getting an error with the OBJ in Maya. However, it opened successfully in Blender and I then exported it as an FBX into Maya. I could share the file with Giorgio's permission.

Alright, here's an FBX of the Pontiac that seems to work in Maya

CG-Creator, just keep trying! Why not create your own thread in "Lighting Challenge" section? That way we can see your progress in one location and offer to help.
