In this modo tutorial, we will look at the creation process for two shots of photo-realistic floating candle scenes that can be a part of a movie or a commercial. Throughout these lessons we'll create a shot that resembles realistic-looking video footage that would otherwise be difficult to shoot. This tutorial offers an overview of key moments from the production that can inspire. Its lessons cover everything from initial analysis, modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, rendering to final comp using primarily modo and Fusion. The discussed techniques are, however, easily applicable to other mainstream applications.
