The Valley, Stefan Morrell (3D)


Title: The Valley
Name: Stefan Morrell
Country: New Zealand
Software: 3ds max, finalRender, Photoshop

This came about while working on a larger poject,I had been using the same buildings in an island setting,but render times & other problems lead me into making this one as a break.
the building was modelled as one facade I then used symmetry modifiers to fill out the scene.
the birds are animated using ‘bend’ & ‘wave’ modifiers.

the quicktime is a short camera pan that I may end up re-rendering with higher samples to clear out the flickering.

total scene polycount is about 600k.

Quicktime 19MB



Congratulations Stefan! :thumbsup:
Really beautifull render. Great details and building design…
Five stars for me, Master :slight_smile:

I have seen the video and… I think that it’s…

Spectacular movement of camera, the lighting and the birds crossing the radio of solar light, very cinematographic.


Hi Stefan, first, fantastic work! second, i think the dust is a bit too much at the far end, all the details have gone to a waste in the buildings, i mean the detailings in the clay render looks gr8. thats all,again fantastic work.


this is an amazing scene !
it reminds me a bit of the townscenes in ghostintheshell,
a more peaceful feel in here though.maybe in a different timespace…
how many hours did you spend on it?



W.O.W :scream:

Good luck.
