SCAD VSFX & Harbor NY

Week 5

Tuesday 2/6 (Class9)



Mentor Feedback:

  • Render out camera move in SH020, don't zoom in after in post

    • try a wider framing

    • the pile of ice makes a tangent with the diving board

  • Add more depth. Can cheat the scale of items to exaggerate depth

  • Background should be out of focus (needs more DOF)

  • SH030 is too fast (add more frames)

    • Pull camera out more

  • Break up Peeps silhouette in SH040. Peeps need to be more integrated with pyro FX

    • Add sugar falling off of the peeps

    • Lighting is very flat, should be coming from the side (3/4, rim)

    • Cans should be brighter

    • Missing something (more detail, fall off, floating ice, out of focus cans, vignette, caustics, bubbles)

    • Have pool tiles or cooler for background, not solid color

  • Color needs to be more consistent throughout ad

Professor Feedback:

  • Make a To Do list in order of priority (split up by team member)

  • Discuss milestones, no more last minute presentations

  • COLOR CONSISTENCY!!!

  • Get slap comps done for SH040

  • Integrate live action shots with 3D shots (color)

  • Continue refining pyro FX

  • Update shaders in all shots (sugar, cans)



Thursday 2/8 (Class10)

These are some color iterations I came up with for SH020. Our biggest challenge with this shot was finding a focal point, so I thought manipulating the color of the peeps would aid in that.


This is the final layout and colors we decided on.


For SH030, I spoke with Nathan Leichner (https://www.nathanleichner.com/blog-1) from Team Death and he gave me some really insightful suggestions on how to improve our shaders. Their team also has ice in their ad so he was able to help us with that along with improving the metal shader for our cans.


Professor Feedback:

  • Make a To Do list in order of priority (split up by team member)

  • Discuss milestones, no more last minute presentations

  • COLOR CONSISTENCY!!!

  • Get an edit of vis rendered out every 2 days (Thursday, Saturday, Monday)

  • Put more effort into getting a polished vis and presentation


To Do List:

  1. Finish lighting SH030

  2. Light SH040

  3. Get edits to Aidan to quality check sound
