Snazzy home CGI.


Do your own snazzy home computer graphics tricks with this tutorial. All you need is a digital camera, a fast computer and about $6000.00 worth of software. Tshaw! [via BoingBoing]

 All you need is: A digital camera A reflective sphere (which you see in a few photos) to capture the lighting of the real-life scene which you want to composite your model into. A small program called HDRShop. Big program called 3D Studio Max. and finally you need a good renderer such as VRay.


  • Or just use Blender

  • Hmm…will Blender do this, DM? HDR Lighting appears to be more than just 3D, it’s some sort of clever lighting stuff. With hardware too.
