Transcription Continued - Exterior Set WIP 04

Little sneak preview of whats to come. Its pretty much a finished still of the scene, however im looking into adding post effects such as smoke in the background, and some colour correction in areas.

Beauty Pass
Ambient Occlusion Pass
ZDepth Pass


  1. Hey Rich,

    To me this scene looks like it needs something to make it 'pop'. I can't explain in certain terms but it feels flat to me? Some darker foreground elements could really help if you ask me.

    From this position. It's like your camera is too distanced from the action. The eye-catching stuff in the midground seems very far away (posters, bus and so on). The whole scene ends up feeling rather grey, small and more empty than it actually is.

    I appreciate the camera moves back through the scene, so what I've just said isn't always the case.

    But if we moved past some elements that sat closer to camera and were darker to adhere to how our eyes read foreground and background, it would really help in my opinion.

    I don't like tooting my own horn but my attic scene from my Major project is an example of what I mean.

    See the bit where the rocking horse comes in to the foreground? Creates a lot more depth to scene.

    Still, pretty amazing you've gotten round to finishing this in your Summer hols. I know how hard that is! :)

  2. Hey Tom, your spot on. I dont see how i missed it to be honest. I think maybe some sand bags and barbed wire and army props would work well here. Its a shame though as i wanted to render and finish asap. Maybe i could render this and then render the other props on a layer and comp in post?

  3. Yep, you could do that for sure.

    I work like this quite often. It's a good way to work because you always have the main bulk of a scene rendered, everything else added is just the icing on the cake. :)
