Game Show Idea - CoinToss

Post by crs » Sun Sep 13, 2009 9:37 am

I'm back on the computer gain after a stint of work, and having enjoyed making the tutor town last time I'm now onto a design a of game show.
I went a bit mental with the point lights really over doing it, but I learnt a lot about what power and distance you can put them to get an even light and not spilling onto other things.
i will post a sketchup scene of the point lights and you'll see what i mean.......

one question would be (see the sketchup model in post below) - the ring of lights i have around the rostra - these are close to the floor. why don't they show in the floor? the floor is grey (just) and reflective, lights set at 400. the upstand of the rostra is red and does reflect the light some. which is what i wanted. if i didn't have these lights they wouldn't show at all, their in shadow. I've done this kind of thing in SUpodium and the light s show in the floor and you get a ring, it gets a bit OTT also it would take an age too to render. This was one of my reasons to see how long it would take with a ton of point lights. answer 1m41 sec @ x1 res.

I posted a topic about tour time approximating. if it was possible approximate the time it would take to tour, from your last tour at x1, to your next if you upped the resolution to say x5. I did this but LU gave me what looked like the same resolution. Its a way of knowing whats ahead, you will always want way up time and quality.
