Bona – 3D Environment

Bona Kemi USA makes quality cleaning and maintenance products for hardwood floors. This is a 3D environment I put together to serve as an intro sequence for some videos that were used in a tradeshow. This environment was modeled, textured, and rendered using Lightwave, and the finished video was assembled in After Effects.

I really liked working on this one, because I really dig 3D environments, and I enjoyed the process of getting the floor texture just right. Rendering the animation itself was a little challenging, because the moving objects.I had to crank up my global illumination settings to avoid flicker, and GI had to be calculated on each frame, as caching doesn’t work with animated geometry.
