Carpet Change

Feedback from my sisters, they like what they saw, the atmosphere going well with the scene, except one thing that looks out of place; Carpet.

They didn’t like the texture of the carpet and add opinions of what the carpet would be, be either reflective glass carpet or cremé fluffy carpet, or even add similar colour to the carpet.

I could see why she suggest that, it does look.. disturbing.

One of sisters suggested another idea related to her first choice; add a moon on the reflective carpet. I’m not sure if that’s a good idea or not, but adding a moon on reflective surface does show promising.

So I decided to do something with the carpet, create a moon on the carpet with stars shining; one of my other sister idea because she find it more amazing and it somewhat links to the atmosphere I am trying to make.
I think I should try making it reflective if it looks well to the scene, if not; non-reflective it is.

After changing the carpet, it looks.. epic.

Except the basic cylinder is ruining the mood, beside that, it looks awesome; taken in mental ray.

Here’s the link from this awesome moon picture:

Creating in Maya, encounter error.

Things are going well with modelling objects in scenery, however I encounter errors which I can not fixed.

From what I read on help forum (autodesk), it is to do with version error. Which I can not do anything about it, it seems the education version in college may be the cause of creating the error to my work.

Which I only have one option left, redo the ENTIRE work from scratch…

So I thought, restarted maya once more, but click on “Ignore version” and fixed the problem.

This thread save me big time solving the problem:

Render View Problem

I thank tristanb3d for the solution.

As for now, here is my work so far:


The layout looks exact position from the scene view I have drawn, what it really needs are texturing & lightning.

But I think what it really needs is tone lightning and I need to worry about what to do with glass attaching to the metal floor.

Next is in mental ray, I added glow intensity to see how it goes, so far, its going great.

I also added in a carpet, it going to be turned as a small fluffy carpet; the base colour is already shown on these two pictures.
