3d Mini Cooper

One of the first realistic renderer that I was able to use.

"One of my favorite job in CG was offered by the-circus Tv Ad. To create a realistic mini cooper for a Sony commercial for several shots."

Since it has a good budget and schedule I was so fortunate to try HDRI images to use as an environment base lighting and use mental ray to create better renders. And from then on I keep on pulling out this scene to be render again and again for testings and even use this setup for different jobs.

HDRI probe for mental ray

We've tried to shoot on location some HDRI probes.
HDRI - High Dynamic Range Image , if you are into photography you are familiar with this word , Few shots in different exposure are combine into one file and 3d software that supports them specially mental ray gets all the contrast information in a 32 bit file to render a better looking image.
