ASSIGNMENT 2 -- CUSTOMIZE YOUR ROOM

You can start with the room you built in tutorials 2-4, or start over. Using photos and images from you gathered before class, you will create your own custom room. Add touches of your own to make the room unique. You will be modeling only---creating all the walls, floor, ceiling, windows, furniture and other objects. We will add material and texture in Assignment 3. You will add lights and render room images in Assignment 4.

The room model you build for this assignment will be the foundation for the environment modeling portion of this course, which counts for half your grade. Be sure to pay attention to details, keep your project organized, your topology neat, and the scale consistent. If not, your work later will be more difficult.

A4 --RENDER FIVE ROOM IMAGES (.EXR OR .PNG) USING ARNOLD.

Due Monday, January 28 at 1 PM

Choose five camera angles that show off your room and lighting. Render out the five images as .exr images. Be sure to allow ample time for rendering. If you have a lot of reflective materials it will take longer to render out (several hours per image).

Create an Ambient Occlusion render pass and render as .exr image. Use Photoshop to combine them and turn in the five images. Be sure at least one image has your object easily visible.
