Level of Detail (Renderman)

Original hand drawing of seed pod from sweetgum tree.



Seed pod modeled with Maya.




Use of a ribbox to read the level of detail of the individual resolution models.

The level of detail is shown here with color designating which level is being shown.

Red = Hi Res, Green = Med Res, and Blue = Low Res.



Click for the ribbox file that is used to produce the level of detail.




By taking the ribbox statement and applying Maya dynamics to a particle emitter we are able to get some primitive moving particles.

The colors RGB once again describe the level of detail.



Same use of level of detail and Maya dynamics.

Color has been omitted to show smooth transistion from the different levels.
