Feature 3 Post Mortem

March 2, 2013 by . Filed under cs455, postmortems, spring 2013.

This feature is all about lighting.  We’ve covered this all in great depth in class already, so there really wasn’t a whole lot that gave me any trouble.  The lighting includes ambient, diffuse, and specular lighting (using the Blinn method in particular).  Everything I used as a reference came directly from Chris Johnson.

Here are side by side comparisons of the models with and without specular highlights added.



And because I know you all want to see these glorious specular highlights all over those flower petals and dinosaur parts, I’ve included a short video demonstrating all this lighting business.
