Nature Captured 3D by Neo101 Nature Captured 3D by Neo101
I've been suffering from some serious creative block, so I ended up getting permission from ~silveryn to do a 3D version of His Walpaper, Nature Captured. [link]

Done in 3D Studio MAX, with a little help from Brazil and some Photoshop fixing.

This is a 1280X1024 WP, so keep a large-ish image in mind...

I still prefer the original.

EDIT: Ok, I know it might be irritating, but I've updated this image, and I'm happy with it the way it is now.
- added slight reflections
- defined the outer "land" elements in the bottoms of the jars

EDIT2:
- Please don't kill me! I honestly forgot which HDRI image I used in the reflections, but thanks to rPHILIP, I remembered that the credit on the reflections goes to `smashmethod ,
for this awesome HDRI texture/map pack: (it's was either Pack 1 [link] or Pack 3: [link])
Thanks for the comments, and please keep 'em coming!

UPDATE: There is a new, "updated" version of ths WP - six years later. [link]

Hey, this is a pretty nice pic! In fact, come to think of it, you can probably sell it on a microstock photography website like the ones I listed below, under the nature search listing. I have been working on selling my own photos, and have several that were just listed the other day. It is a pretty cool system: companies can cut costs for photos by buying them from microstock sites rather than paying their own photographers, and you get paid every time an individual or company buys your photo(s). The signup for these kinds of accounts is free, and you get a cut of the pay. (the only reason it is free to register with them is because they take a portion of every sale.) Also, when a company buys your photo, they don't get the copyright, so they have to buy it a whole bunch of times, once for every time they use it! The photos never leave the microstock site, and will earn you passive income every time they sell for years to come. :D Exciting? Oh yeah! :) Have fun! (I would recommend bigstock the most, since they currently have a short waiting list for photo approval, and approvals are lightning fast!) Crestock and Shutterstock are tougher to get into since they have a skill level requirement, unlike the others, but will pay you a higher cut of your photo sales.) I would give it a go next time you find yourself with some free time, perhaps you will be a hit if you have more amazing photos like this one! :) Cheers! :) -Delkaoth [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]

You are welcome! :) I am having fun with it because those photos which don't get approved and sold get me a free critique, which I can use to help better my photography skills :) Have fun and feel free to send my message to your friends too! :) Enjoy your summer!

Nope, the whole thing is 3D, including the trees. Those were foliage objects that come Mb<with MAX, I just modified slightly..

Heya!!

For this one I used 3D Studio MAX (I think it was version 6...)
Anyhoo, I did use Photoshop for the texturing, as well as the compositing, so I hope this answers your question at least!

:D

nice one...is it rendered by mental ray? can you tell me, how to set up the scene to reach photorealistic look lik in your render?...thank you

:iconneo101:
Neo101 Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2007  Professional Filmographer
Nope, this was still with Brazil!

I've got my hands on MAX9 now, so I'm definitely getting to like Mental Ray much better than ever!!

So, to answer your question: Yes, I can tell you how to set up a scene like that, it only depends on which Studio Max Version you're working, because the Mental Ray's are different too! :D

oh thx...so, can you explain me, how are u using mental ray renderer and do you set up the scene? (how many lights,light types, shape of the room, material of the room.... )...I'm still trying it, but it isn't that right - photorealistic effect....thanx

:iconneo101:
Neo101 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2007  Professional Filmographer
That's the problem, this scene was only a skylight and a floor plane, but that was using Brazil.
The same idea applies to Mental Ray, But I only know how to do it in Max9, seeing as they've only added that to mental ray in this version. :blush:

I'm sorry that I can't be of any firther help with this one, I just never got into the earlier mental Rays...

How about trying Vray or something similar?
Reply
:iconw1p:
W1P Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2007
I've already tried V-ray, but I wasn't satisfied with it...but I downloaded max9 yesterday...I will try mental raying in this version...anyway, thanks for help! I will try skylight...
