Nice advan, very nice! I've picked up the adv painter as well, really simple to make grass, just make some splines or wat ever in diff sizes, attach to one mesh, proxy them and use adv painter to scatter them around, awesome!
@catlin - I basically went to google maps and found a topview of adenauer forst. I made a plane and made a basic shape of the track. Then I went on to GT4 to check where the elevation changed and such. And for the zooming thing, well what I found useful is to select the part you want to work on and press Z so that the camera just focuses on that bit. Then press Z again with nothing selected to rotate around the whole scene. Pretty useful when you're working on small details on cars imo.
@crazy - indeed but I wanted to do the nurburgring in particular because of the trees. I just think it would look awesome in CG when everything is rendered as a clay.
Well if someone can do that so can I
@krystian - woot, only use 1.83MB for the clays below. those proxies are teh best.
@astr0s - haha yeah
Just laying out the fence posts, except they look too big lol.
advan..would you be able to give a tip on setting the lighting up like that.Ive made my own track the past few days(Castle combe circuit here in england) Ive set up a vraysun with pretty much default settings and using vrayphysicalcamera. Now you do play with the vraysun settings much and concentrate on setting the camera up? would just like to understand this vraysun . Also i found it better when i turned on the GI for vray is that what you do?
@et - hehe yeah, the leaves are huge too
@midoo55 - I actually don't know for sure cause I didn't try rendering it without use of proxies. But it didn't take long to render with proxies either, probably 2-3 minutes.
@catlin - its pretty simple, takes me like a minute to setup. Since I like making illustrations....
@4yBak - :] cept im not sure if scene has to be scratch made too, but i'm doing it incase.
