Ferrari 250s


Here is a series of renders I did for fun. Mainly to render some nice shots for my reel and also learn some new MentalRay techniques. The paint shaders make heavy use of layered materials and the MIP RaySwitch node. The scene was light using a custom built HDR and NativeIBL, no GI was utilized. I enabled some of the hidden advanced features in MentalRay for Maya for this scene like the MIP shaders, unified sampling and native IBL.

Post production was done in Nuke.

Stock models. I find having good models to work with makes lighting much more fun.

The cars featured are the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa, one in a classic race paint scheme(the black one) and the other in classic Ferrari red. The other car is a 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO in Ferrari red and a race scheme.


A collection of the most expensive cars...... in the world.
