This is an old challenge now, this thread is archived. If you scroll down to the Challenge #9 section of the downloads page, you’ll see that the models can still be downloaded for your tests, and also that a gallery has been made of top entries.

Lighting Challenge #9 is on-line!
The main challenge here is that a truck is moving through an environment lit by neon signs and flourescent tubes and light bulbs, and of course the truck itself has headlights and taillights. This is a bigger, more complex scene than some of the lighting challenges.

This scene was modeled by Christophe Desse and Matthew Thain. Christophe requests that the truck he modeled only be used for non-commercial purposes. Please credit the modelers if you use your renderings on your web pages or demo reels.

All shading and rendering techniques are fine, as long as the scene is lit in 3D. Modeling changes are OK, including hiding or deleting objects, adding other cars, animating the scene, etc. Matthew Thain carefully modeled the parking garage to appear detailed around the entrance area; other parts of the garage are not as detailed. -jeremy
