The client's general brief was to create a peaceful and calm surrounding of which the villas are located. this desert scene was actually our first try to merge the magical scenery of the desert with a modern architecture of a villa. In addition to the clients stills frames we supplied the client, we wanted to took the idea a step forward in a mysterious & humoristic way (see video).
The most challenging task was to create a believable surrounding terrain with rocks and sand in order to achieve a realistic look. We used different types of scatter techniques on rocks and vegetation - a thing that cause us lots of RAM peaks. For the setup of this scene we used V-Ray sun and physical camera. this gave us great results for the exterior shots.
The final achievement of the feel and mood was done with the post work which gave a subtle and calm mood. V-Ray displacement gave us the ability to create the detailed terrain and the rock fence. It required some extra use of RAM so we needed to work smart and to optimize every progress of our work.
