Liquid Gold, Christian Goetzinger (3D)



Title: Liquid Gold
Name: Christian Goetzinger
Country: Germany
Software: mental ray, Photoshop, SOFTIMAGE|XSI

I created this whiskey glass for a short movie I'm working on at the moment. I ended up setting up a little scene for it and rendered it out.

The scene was done in XSI / mental ray, depth of field and grain were added in Photoshop.

Cheers,
Chris

I would like too see the final animation, but this is a nice image. I like the wiskey glass and
the caustic effect, only the stain on the news paper looks a little bit odd, other than that
it's OK.

Verrrrry Nice! 4 stars.
The material of the glass is a dielectric. Isn't?
How many samples used for Caustics?
What is the light source?

Very nice shading!
Only thing: Maybe it's better to switch off the soft specular highlight at the inner side of the glass. It looks more like a specular shading highlight than as a reflection.
Best

The glass uses the L_Glass shader because it's very fast and can produce great results. I use a bump map to make the glass surface look more organic.
The caustic settings are: accuracy 10,000 - radius 0.15 (but that one is scene dependant).
There's one key light which is an area light that casts 1,000,000 photons.

Chris

Nice work.

Chris, You gotta love XSI and L_Glass shader. It is a phenomenal combination.
I had tested this shader before and it is impressive of how fast it is.
