This week has been just a bunch of final touches to the scene. There are still a few things that need to be cleaned up but this is my first final render. What I did for the scene this week was setup the camera path guide for my animated render. I also created and organized the render layers so I can easily composite my scene. I color corrected the fog and fixed other small tweaks.
This week I tweaked the lighting even more and added some shadows to the lights. I also fixed miscellaneous small things to improve the scene.
I retextured the castle and finished all the small objects in the scene including the bridge and door frame. I also did many experiments to see how I’m going to composite this with the many different layers. Once the clouds move at the right speed and the fog looks just right, I’ll start rendering a trailer with composed music to fit the mood of the scene.
I worked hard on the lighting in the scene. I created an ocean and some fog in by the coast. I created animated clouds and a sky box for the camera. I still have alot of small things that need to be added for realism and should be completed in another week.
