If you like my previous post about a rendered cruise boat video, you should see PhotoView 360 Rendered Animation too.
The Javelin office just moved to a new location earlier this year, so I decided to make something interesting about the new office building. Please take a look at the video below.
Here are some rendered images of the animation:
A few topics that I would like to discuss about the model setup:
1. The pages in the book – only the top few pages are individual components. The rest of them are one body with texture. This keeps my assembly simple.
2. Angular mate between pages – I used “limit mate” for the pages. The trick here is to make sure the range of motion is below 180 degrees. Why? If >180 degrees is allowed, funky things will happen to the popup sections because: for example 181 degrees is also -179 degrees.
3. Appearances on the popup section – I used textures, or texture + decals. For the mountain, I grabbed a photo of mountain from internet, and I added the paper texture. The final appearance can only be seen in the final render images I posted at the beginning.
4. Popup section models – They are all surface models. If I start to give them some thickness and make them solids, it is more difficult to apply mates for them.
5. Lighting – I added a “point” light inside the desk lamp. The cover of the lamp is semi transparent, which allows the light to shine through. In the point light property setup, I enabled “fog” which provides more artistic looks. The fog appearance only shows up in the final render.
