Project 2A: Interior with Texture & Lighting

I. Project Overview

Using your newfound skills, model an interior scene. This time, we'll be adding the power of textures, lighting, and compositing to create a complete render. Note: Project 1 & 2 are both due on Monday, November 9. See revised due dates for details.

Here's the basic construction order:
1. Model - get the geometry set before you UV map. Changes in geometry will affect the UVs.
2. UV Map - prepare a UV map for each object so you can apply textures.
3. Surfacing - create Materials for your objects with 2D texture maps and material attributes.
4. Lighting - use a combination of lighting types and techniques to flesh out the scene.
5. Render - set resolution and use render layers to generate a bitmap(s) of your shot.
6. Post-Production - Composite, color-correct, and cheat to create your final shot.

Here're a few texture maps to get you started - click 'em to enlarge and download the high res versions. Put 'em in your project folder in the sourceimages folder.

II. Technique: Materials, UV Mapping, Texture Maps
