LOR Volume Three production is now underway. Here is my production
January 5 2005
The beginnings of the first shot. These mountains are lit with a fRender
sky light. Then I bake the lighting into a lightmap texture. This makes
the rendering go much faster as well as avoiding any grainy jitter from
the skylight. There are 5 layers in this scene so far. I may still remake
the mountains in the foreground. I really like the snowy cold feel.
I want to have this panning shot feel like I'm starting way up in the
cold desolation and end up in the warm greenery. I would like to place
some clouds up and around these cold mountains, but I kind of like the
clean air as well. Not sure yet.

Big Render Small
I have begun to make some new landscapes for LOR V3.
This scene is using fRender for sky lighting. 3 differnent layers.
I still have a series of mountains to place in the far back.
