    Default 3ds Max - Company Logo

    Hmm, there's no 3DS Max gallery...

    This is a variation of my company logo; it's going to be used on the splash page of my website (when it eventually gets done). I modeled it with 3DS Max 7, and used Mental Ray for the lighting and caustics. This image is around 155,000 polygons.

    I've still got to adjust the "ceiling" (there isn't one), to adjust that very dark area on the surface of the water, and re-do the wood texture of the table since 3DS's supplied wood texture stinks. I am also going to add some depth of field at some point.

    Do you normally model fish? Looks good.

    155,000 polygons? Is that a lot for a 3DS Max model?

    I would expect a Gallery could be added, once there is a recurring need for one. At the moment, I am not sure there is a recurring need for one.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Thanks Opie No, not normally fish, most of what I do is architectural rendering, but for my company's name (Lucid Design Studio), I thought clear water in a fishbowl relays the kind thoughts I want to provoke.

    It's pretty high up there. For instance, most any console game (Xbox, PS2, etc.) will have polygon counts ranging from 3,000 up to 10,000. High-end animated movies from Pixar, ILM, and the like will produce frames with 100,000 or more. Of course, with higher polygon counts come longer rendering times; this accounts for the low count on games, which need to render faster for real-time rendering, and the high count on major studio films, which have access to huge render farms.

    Pretty impressive for a company logo. Makes our 2d polyline logo like a preschooler drew it. How big is the file?

    Not simple enough for a business card, this is just for our web page. My actual "logo" I use is here. This isn't too big, I just rendered at 1600x1200, so it's only 6 Mb uncompressed.

    Somewhere in the forums, they said to specify what I used to create this...

    Workstation:
    HP Pavilion, AMD 64 FX 3800+, 6Gb Dual-channel Ram, nVidia Quadro FX 4500 PCIe (my baby).

    Render farm:
    Two HP Pavilions, both with an AMD 64 FX 2200+, 4 Gb RAM.

    Looks nice, but it looks like the fish has some serious skin issues.

    Haha, yeah, I actually forgot to remove that material (for possible use elsewhere), but when it came out I kinda liked it...
