Sep 9 2009 Audi R8
Made in 3ds Max, Maya, Nuke, After Effects, Photoshop
Original Date: Jan 18 2009
This is a sweet sports car. I used 3ds Max and Maya to model the freeway and environment, except the car, that was a pre made model. I got the basic model data and then took that into 3ds Max and created the Vray Material and then used an HDRI image to recreate realistic reflections on the car. I then rendered out about 8 shots out. At the end I used Nuke to composite the shots with its node based and EXR floating point data. After Effects was used for the final Composite. This car commercial was done at Speedshape (a VFX company in Birmingham, MI) at their workshop in the summer of 2009. It was rendered out overnight using Vray on their render farm in Birmingham.
