Game Cinematics

Posted by Sinisa Babic on June 3, 2015 at 3:15 AM

I am passionate about game cinematics. It is always exciting to collaborate with other talented artists. These three shots here are stills from short animated cinematic. My part here was lighting, shading and rendering. Mental ray was used as render engine.

Candle wax material description

Posted by Sinisa Babic on March 27, 2010 at 5:11 PM

Hello, my first blog entry here :)

I tried to make my own wax material for candle in this scene and to optimize it and re use in further scenes.

These setings are just my version and they are a product of many trials and experiments. I'd like to share my settings with everyone who is interested in that. Maybe it would be helpful to someone.


In many comercial projects for clients I usually skip the process of adapting a realistic wax material and usually fake it in photoshop in post. The picture I posted is raw rendered picture, without any photoshop work.


Software used: 3ds Max 2009, V ray 1.5 sp2


SSS effect is very important here, because of the scattered light inside the wax material. Not only the realistic material is important to achieve the realistic 3d visualization af a candle, realistic model is very important too. I diceded to make a simple pale yellow  candle, but you can adapt the color in diffuse channel as you wish.

Another very important thing is light. I used vray sphere light, then scaled it in non uniform mode, with a scale tool.

I wanted to get a similar form of  the light source like the candle flame. The amount of the light depends on your overall scene settings and vray physical camera settings of course.
