Introduction to Maya - Rendering in Arnold
This course will look at the fundamentals of rendering in Arnold. We'll go through the different light types available, cameras, shaders, Arnold's render settings and finally how to split an image into render passes (AOV's), before we then reassemble it i

The spitfire looks great but the ocean looks a bit too "big" and sort of throws it out of scale.

I've had the same problem with my oceans too I cant seem to get them the right scale for the Job!!

Good work man

Looks awesome!
I think the reason why the ocean is so big is because the plane is too close to it. I don't think anybody would fly that close during a storm...

cheers for the comments. i agree with ya gster and most of my colleagues notices the size and magnitude of the ocean before the plane, but thats also a problem with creating that type of effect, if i have the ocean plane too small there won't be enough to ocean and will look wierd.

r4s1n heh yeh i understand what you mean! my tutors have commented on that too and will change that soon, hm never actually noticed that lol. i just thought it looked cool for the plane to be close to the oceans surface. cheers!

gster - not sure what you mean by that? the render was a straight out persp view, the animation isnt rendered yet- still have few tweaks to sort out- mainly the foggy atmosphere and the cloud flythrough cam which is causing a lot of problems, but will post it up when i have it done, which hopefully will be within the next week.

jhubbard- dude you have no idea how painful it is to live here! i got tricked! the university did some false advertising... what i mean by that in their prospectus for the computer animation and special effects degree they stated "in the first year learn how to do wallace and gromit, progress in the second year advance to shrek and in the final year learn how it is all done in the matrix"... was the ONLY reason i decided to study there- blew of bournemouth for that place...!!

dont ever go back to bradford when your out!!! its not worth it! like living in hell!
ive never seen so many rats in my life!!!!

sorry went bit off topic... heh
