buddies, i am very sorry no posting lately...quite busy with packing stuff...

living room 2: final test render

some adjustment for my prev test render, i m in d midst of creating some video demo, till then
c ya later

rendering done when i was sleeping: Roksan

Denon: shared materials & scene set up: Max 9

as you can see above are 2 pics; light set up and scene, i have to remove the denon receiver since it's commercial 3d model.i replaced with a box, what u need to do is just replace that box with ur items, then render, u can download my material here, and scene here. feel free to manipulate.btw this is max 9 scene.

Denon: HDRI via FG

this is a test render for commercial model denon receiver, using HDRI via MR fg, more to come..i am doing another test render now, i will share the light set up & materials that i used in this experiment fyi, the model was provided by, texturing, light rigging and rendering was done by me.

living room 2: mentalray setting

i used 3 photometric lights 1 skylight and1 mr spotlight

the quality is not good due to draft mode

ok let me share with you some of my simple setting for mental ray (MR),
long time ago i myself didn't really know how to hack this stuff, it's damn technical and the old version of MR was purely customizable,not user friendly and pretty tough to handle, normally i use final gather (FG) for standard MR rendering setting.FG is very powerful algorithm. here is another test render with its setting, the image itself is "blocky" since i rendered it with draft mode. some materials i used Jeff Patton's models such as carpet and you can download the setting and model here. Feel free to tweak and send your good pic of it.

talking about hair/fur in 3d? last few decades was a very complex and sophisticated modelling issue but nowadays you can use built-in hair plugin in 3dsmax , above are pics taken from they provide plugin for hair in max, i haven't had a chance to explore the demo version, may be once i got a chance i will see what i can create from this cool toy

updates on test render

not done yet...few more things to be improved...this is the latest

my blog was blocked : another test render

it was pretty bad day since last 2 days, the admin blocked my blog due to spam thingy, finally i managed to prove that i got nothing to do with spam, this site shares knowledge and free model etc.
well last night i managed to do some test render and u can see the living room here got some improvement. no materials applied and still got room for some more improvement.
i cant share the models since they belong to commercial models. i can share the scene file and you can take a look at how did i set up the mental ray scene. Bear in mind that i am rendering this via 8 Xeon CPUs with 8 GB Ram. So i have no idea how long it takes to render via 1 cpu/2cpus.

You can download your 3d scene model here(all interior models were removed) you only will get 3d interior scene.

animation: logo free download

i created 1 simple logo animation with explosion you can download here. Just play around with particle array parameters. feel free to download it here

lastly there are text coming in and particle emits from the text base, you can download here , all max 8 file

So i didnt manage to upload and share something during that time, ok above is the scene which i manipulated the mental ray glass physic phenomenon, so you can download the 3dsmax 6 file here and the material in .mat here.

my first time blogging

welcome to my blog, well finally i managed to get a blog, sounds cliche..
after 32 yrs living in this world, now it's time for me to share my computer graphics knowledge, particularly in 2d/3d graphics, more specific into the art of 3d graphics:multimedia/ animation/virtual reality.

tonight i don't have any techniques to share, may be i should share the most recent multimedia conference trip that we went in dec 06, jogjakarta. it was quite fun and tiring since this is the 2nd conference, i went with my family, we used to travel to various countries, but only me n my wife, this time i brought my parents and sister too...we rented an apartment, one MPV with a driver..indeed it was quite tiring of handling my 3 kids compared to exploring jogja!

i was not into shopping interest field...but my parents/wife were mad about shopping...they spent days for shopping, while i spent taking care of the kids for the last day...we visited borobodur , perambanan temple
-conference dinner,some other kraton (palaces), silver for the conference it's called as The Fourth International Conference on Advances in Mobile Computing & Multimedia (MoMM2006) held on 4-6 December 2006, in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. we presented a paper entitled "A Prototype for Voice Driven Emotion Recognizer Mobile Phone"

talking about dinner, it was a luxury outdoor dinner (pic below-bit blur since it was quite dark and handheld), it cost me RM120 per head, all indonesian based food..not bad,the funny thing they also served maggi as one of the meals, it come with a show too, ramayana, a very traditional show...more importantly, we got to know other researchers from all over the world...that's good thing bout conference

here are some other pics we took bit noisy since it's very dark

behind me-parambanan temple, damn beautiful sightseeing

with some of the nasty boys there
