This a rendered frame from the start of my ball and tail animation. I have modelled the arm chair, lamp and table myself, using a various techniques we learnt from the modelling sessions. I also did some experimenting with different ways to light the scene. I wanted the light to emit from the lamp but I was unable to make light pass through lamps shade. At the moment I have applied a mia_material and connected a mia_ light surface to it, but I have also been using ‘object lights’ applied to the shade, both have the same effect, which i like a lot because it gives the scene a very warm feel. This is particularly good because it creates the perfect environment for a sleeping cat (ball and tail). the only issue with this is the lamp loses all definition and shading, I am unsure of how to fix this but I will keep searching.
