This is almost perfect! Amazing Render. I just have the feeling it's a bit stretched out vertically.

I'm sorry to say this and I really am sorry if I'm wrong but, this to me after some revising of the both photographs looks fake.. meaning you took the original photo and just made a simple sbs..

avatar Toothpick134

I just looked at your sbs and it seems you did do the modeling but you sort of overlayed the original photograph onto your model.. and I'm not sure if thats allowed is it? I mean it sort of cheating isn't it?

avatar Toothpick134

I guess your right I wasnt even aware of a technique like this but to me it just seems pointless what you've done.. because it's just identical, but only because you used the actual photo as a texture, i think the whole theme in here is to yes, copy the image but using your own textures. Anyway well see if the mods have a problem with it either way good luck and sorry if i sounded like bitchy or something :P

I understand it is annoying if you see an entry that you do not know how it is done, but the oppotunity to learn is there. If it is as simple as you make out thenhave a go it is an open contest that is about 3d and all its tricks and skills not about searching the web for matching pre made textures and shaders. If it is on theme I will write a tutorial as this is one of the most commonly used ways to texture VFX shots.

Great job I did 'lol' at the cheat remark... Understanding the baking process on its own is a process the author has had to learn - so to call a cheat or imply that this is simple to do is a little insulting. On another note - I would very much like to see a tutorial on this process as I haven't had the time to explore it. GL author, a clear win from me.

@ mirjea I have uploaded as step 4 of SBS different angles. there are no diplacement maps because what you are seeing is texture in the colour channel. I am a little confused because I have not done anything wrong, in fact I have forfilled the brief of the contest may be a little to well and so am getting a lot of stick for doing my best to explain to people what is going on and show that I am not cheating.

I would like to point out the MODs seem to have no problem with it.

last comment i wouldn't want to be annoying. Though I think people who do not know what they are talking about being rude and accusatory is a little annoying, but hay better to be a lover than a hater eh!

I'll admit you did a terrific job. Unfortunately, I don't buy it. At the end of the day, I'm still looking at your source image, not your geometry, texture, etc,.. You've cleverly found a loophole in the wording of this contest, as it doesn't state that you may not use the source, and for that you deserve 1st. Bravo. Bravo.

I must admit that although this is a new technique to me, I totally understand how it works. I also question wether this is valid or not in this competition.

I would like to hear from a MOD on this matter, for not only this contest, but contests that are still to come.

In my opinion when the contest description is asking to MIMIC a photo by means of "Background, lighting, shading, texture and obviously model etc" the entry should contain all of these but be recreated, thus it becomes a mimic, a recreation - not a duplication.

Does this scene have any light setup for example?... no.
