Catching a few lobsters...
/ Matthew Rotella Week 6 PPJ: Updates
February 14, 2017

This week was about updates. With the advent of Renderman 21 being installed in the labs, all of my scenes needed to be relit. I also updated the shaders on my flowers, though they certainly still need some polish on their textures.

This week we also met with Professor Burton for a valuable and lengthy meeting, where he went through our shots one by one to give us some much appreciated advice and insight. In response I made a some edits to my shot compositions in accordance with his advice. I rearranged the flowers and reframed the ship for the supernova explosion shot. I still need to make another pass at the inside the supernova shot to do a few things.

In the week to come I hope to lock the animation for being inside the supernova along with making the flowers look really nice along with some simulated motion physics.

Lobster Fact: Lobsters’ antennae pick up radio signals, and research has shown that they respond most positively 70’s soul music with a particular affinity for the group Aquarian Dream.
