Hello Everyone, This is my first post on this site, so here it goes. I've been working on a McLaren F1 for a school project for an animation contest and I need some help on it. I'm 16 years old and pretty much self taught in Maya. I've read one book (Maya Fundamentals) and use the help in Maya sometimes, but needed some outside advice. Here's my car so far:
As you can see, most of my problems are with rendering. I can't create a good shader for the paint and I don't know how to use GI, FG, or HDRI to create a well lit scene. If any one could help me or give me any advice, it would be great, and I'll try to get more pictures up soon, once I work on interior a bit more. Thanks.
