So I sorted out the camera angles for doing a walk through and it all went swimmingly until the playback. Black spaces, not lit well enough and mostly walk throughs of walls. A revisit on the lighting layout produced little improvement and so I ended up lighting the set like a christmas tree. The downfall of such a move was that rendering became a nightmare. Each frame took over 50 mins to render...and after 5hrs I called it a day and rendered my decision on lighting a poor one.
Instead of the walk through I chose to save some images in perspective and show the building and design off in the best way possible. Knowing your limitations for the moment is a good thing, and lighting the scene in the most effective way is a new skill yet to be fully grasped in 3ds max.
Handed up the final designs either way, a copy of which can be viewed here: https://issuu.com/superhilbo/docs/projectmodule3_overallpdf_hl_1983_p
A few images are up on the blog here just by way of wanting to share what was done. I really hope to resume pencil and paper type projects in the next couple of weeks, after a decompression occurs and a sense of me is gained again! In the meantime I'm simply hoping to get out into what is left of the sun in a bid to move from looking like Casper to a more healthy human.
