More File Formats Wanted

If have a nice, clean version of some of the scenes imported into your own particular 3D software package, I'd like to host more file formats.

For example, if you've imported Challenge #1 into Softimage|XSI or CHallenge #2 into Cinema 4D, and your scene could make it easier for other people with your brand of software to get started with your challenge, I'd like to share it.

If you have a challenge scene imported into another file format which would be useful to a large number of people, then please clean out any textures or lights that you added, make sure the objects are grouped in a logical way, compress the file as .zip or .rar, and send it to me.

If you have a website, just post here with the URL where the new file can be downloaded. If you need other ways to send a file, PM me and I'll reply with an e-mail address or FTP address for you to use.

Thanks!

-jeremy

Great idea.
I've tried most challangest myself but due to time constraints I usualy don't finish them and hence don't like posting anything I know I'm not going to finish.
So here is an attempt to light the eye that I never posted. It was mostly done as a practice for inderect lighting setup and compositing via XSI's built in comp. This was the first pass on it and then life got in a way

Here is the composite tree for this: Comp Tree

Cheers!

Yet another bowl of fruit...

Hi everyone...

I just started working through Jeremy's book, and have been reading through the old challenges- it's great, I've learned loads already! Thanks to all of you who are participating in this thread, and especially Jeremy.

Anyway, here's my bowl of fruit. I'm using Vue Infinite- that must be an odd thing to use; no one else in these challenges uses it, it seems. I'm a total noob and that's the only 3d software I've got. When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail...

I've got lots of issues (some of them have to do with this scene ) but in particular, the shadow on the pear is driving me nuts. I'm not sure what to do to make it better without ruining the overall effect.

Cheers, and thanks for any feedback!

Hi Viskam,

I love the Che Guevara pic! And the smoke rising in front of him makes a really nice composition.

Your candle flames look a bit like natural gas flames, though... can you fix that to make them look more like natural flame?

Seeing your work makes me want to do that challenge- just after I get over being obsessed with fruit.

Cheers!

It is another scene rendered with maxwell render.

Render time is about 2hours.

No post processed except level adjustment.

and ashisa,

I like your burning coil(?) and smoke.

It's a really cool.

Here is my try at the candle scene. I didn't get around to putting an image in the frame yet and didn't give much attention to the incense. I was mainly focused on getting the candle and flames right and the lighting from them. This was my first try at rendering in passes. I had four passes that I combined in photoshop (Shadow, Ambient Occlusion, Flames and Everything Else).

Wink I finally finished my version of the Hunted_Hallway

I had a lot of fun working on this piece. I used Maya 8.0 and the textures that I used are from www.texturama.com, except for the floor, I got that one from www.cgtextures.
Ok, In this image I am using Mental Ray and Global Illumination.
Thank you guys. Any comments are very welcome.

gato3d - What you posted is mostly a black image, with only a circle of light on the floor and a few streaks of texture on a wall to the right, so it's hard to tell what you're trying to represent.
