Pixar's Kitchen Challenge
"Early Morning Race"
All models were created by Pixar. The image on the left is how the file was setup when first opening the scene. The image on the right shows my changes to the layout.
My biggest problem was to UV the scene. With RenderMan, when you put a image texture on the object, the only way to view where your textures are is by rendering out the scene or using IPR. This is an incredibly slow process! Toward the end of my project, when I go into the UV editor, the UV outlines would disappear. I have come to find this is a Maya 2017 error but I have not found a solution to this. If I can find a solution, I have added textures for the books, the cereal boxes, and the window frames.
With More Time...
The HDRI rendered out pixalated and in the reflection of on the fridge, the fridge did not reflect the image of the HDRI. When looking at the fridge photo, I really like the glass bottle. I, of course, like the arrangement of the cereal.
This is my first project with Pixar's Renderman and I learned a lot with room to learn more. It was also interesting to see and use models created by someone else and to see how to created the geometry.
