''Select and create 4 models form reference images using the techniques we’ve learned.''
; Assignment
: Choose 3 objects: light bulb, vine glass, mug, candle holder, corkscrew, lamp, book, ashtray, chair or other after consultation.
: Find reference images for objects and model them using learned techniques.
: Make a final render of each model.
; Evaluation
: Use all of the techniques (on any model): extrusion, loop cutting, curve modeling, boolean modifier (10p)
: Complexity of selected reference and modeled detail (5p)
: Editing friendliness - not applied modifiers, low polygon count (5p)
: HDR environment map with correct values for the sun (10p)
: Basic material on each model and shadow receiver plane for final renders (5p)
: Aesthetic of created models - proportions, realism, etc. (5p)
; Possible models
; Submission
: light bulb, vine glass, tree, mug, bottle, candle holder, table, chair, corkscrew, lamp, screw, book or other after consultation.
: Before modeling create folder named "mrt_p1_[your name]" and place all files inside that folder.
: Each model should be located on a separate layer
: Folder should contain '''ONLY ONE''' blend file, object reference images, and HDR environment map
: Pack folder to archive (zip/7z/rar) and send to ''adam.riecicky@fmph.uniba.sk''
; Evaluation
: Use all of the techniques (on any model): extrusion, loop cutting, curves, boolean modifier/
: Complexity of selected reference and realistic looks of the result will be rated.
: Mesh should have the lowest number of base faces as possible.
: Screenshots of modeling process are required.
; Submission
: Use [https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13776/windows-use-snipping-tool-to-capture-screenshots Snipping Tool] or [http://www.screenpresso.com/ Screenpresso] to capture your progress regularly (every mayor change).
: Pack (zip/7z/rar) unmodified screenshots, reference photos and '''.blend''' file with all finished models, each on a separate layer.
: Send the archive to ''adam.riecicky@fmph.uniba.sk''.
