Unit 03 - Maya: Mirror Reflections


So I add some a problem when importing the mirror reflection blinn into the scene it didnt really reflect what I wanted, just half of it, but and according to Tutor Phil, I took it off the scene ( the reflection) and something strange happen, it started to reflect the fake wall and windows I have put to create more realistic shadows. It gave me an idea instantly, I leave it and started to create a metaphor with it, also to look more realistic I added a background picture of a outside view.
I think sometimes can happen good accidents!

Hi Ruben,

Watch out for the light from outside penetrating the walls (down the side/corner of the central column and wall?). Put a piece of gemoetry on the otherside of the wall to block the light. It comes from the plane (wall) only being a single face thick and the light intensity from outside being overly high.

p.s. The geometry may also be two seperate pieces.

okay - I can't pretend to know what you two Maya whizz-kids are talking about... :-) but this scene is really coming on; the thing about the 'hanged person' was an issue of elegance; you've done so much subtle stuff, I just feared that the shadow would be too spook house - of course, I could be wrong, as I was reacting to something that wasn't ready or properly in place; if time was on your side (and I know it isn't) I'd have a go at creating both versions of the scene - and then make an informed choice; but I'm guessing you already have a great deal on your creative plate! Good luck with the last few days of tweaking - looking forward to friday already! :-)

Yes, If I had more time I would go back and check what I did wrong with the mirror reflection. But at least Im happy how it is coming along the reflection. Much more subtle and directs the viewer to almost the same effect..
