Hallway - First Max Render
show user profile  FloorPlay
Hey pples.

This is my first render in Max after attempting to learn the basics over the last 3/4 weeks of the program.

Not exactly 'art' as posse is it! lol

Thnx for the help thus far.

EDIT: Just realised the 800x600 limit.

It's a strange choice for the texture... looks like a massively enlarged floorboard map.
Also I would try to get rid of the reflection of the light on the ceiling, which is at a strange angle.
The mood and lighting in general look pretty good and it is a really good effort for such a new Maxer.

good job for only 3 weeks of learning..

you should consider (as mentioned) choosing a different texture for your walls, and increase the tiling on the floor texture, so it doesn't look like big sheets of wood...

Hey thanks guys for the positive comments and constructive crits. Really


@vlad61: Im just teaching myself with tutes from the net.

@eunicedes: Thnx.

@Mardem: I saw your remote, i learnt from it too about smoothing etc. A remote

can be quite complicated to model.

@s_purs Tried an AO pass but it wouldn't work for this scene for some reason.

When i tried AO with a just a few cubes it worked fine...?

@markoid: Read up on texturing. Realised theirs no real texturing at all in

this image after reading your comment. Thnx man. Hey...nice website.

@albongino Yup, agreed. Thnx

Well i had the inside of a hallway so why not try and do the outside too. This

is what i got. May change the brick texture and try doing a night scene.

Thnx all again

Laters peeps :)

First pic :

1. It seems small to me - because of the floor and wall tex. and the height of the camera vs. the width of the hallway. I would either lower the cam for a more "dramatic" angle, og make the hallway narrower.

2. It lacks ambient occlusion (look it up)

3. You also need to break op the reflections in the ceiling a little bit with a specular map, or even a small bump map. Bring in some tiny irregularities.

4. The bronze thingy at the end also makes the scale fall apart. It looks like some kind of championship cup - but way too big. I'd suggest a plant, or perhaps a statue or something reckognizeable, to help the scale. Maybe even a table or chairs...

5. Chamfers on your ornaments would help too - right now they look a bit too crisp and edgy - but that might be remedied with an AO pass.
