I had to do something with the cars I modelled with Wings3D, but at the same time I wanted to avoid showing them too close or too clearly, so I figured out this sort of highway scene.
Except for one of the tests below, I’m not using radiosity, but a fill light. With the focal blur, motion blur and all the cars and trees, the radiosity version takes too long. Fortunately, the faked version looks convincing enough.
Added some more test WIPs bellow, and also these two animations:
I’ve finished the bus, and there are some new shots showing it alone and at the autobahn. There are also a few pics of a wierd idea I had while searching for pics for another scene: a massive car abduction on the autobahn by uknown aliens. BTW, I’ve still pending the modelling of the trucks…
At last I decided to finish this scene, but I wouldn’t mind doing a sequel soon, as the topic is interesting. For now, I added a more realistic truck, but I didn’t model it. It’s a POV-Ray model by ZeSly made for the POVCOMP2004, and it was easy to integrate into the autobahn. I also added some more cars, but again they are not mine, but donwloaded from the free cars collection at DMI, and converted with PoseRay on my laptop. I just replaced the predefined textures with my own.
