ABOUT THE IMAGE
A picture of a bowling alley is a good for showing some capabilities
of Real 3D V2. Maybe that's way they have put a bowling picture on
the cover of the Real 3D package.
I wanted to create my own bowling-alley picture and here is the
result. The pins have been created using Real 3D's lathe-command,
which constructs complex objects from simple solid primitives like
cylinders and hyperboloids. The pin surface is totally smooth and
it's also very fast to render this, because no polygons are used.
The ball was harder to create than I thought. First I tried
to create a totally black ball, but it absorbed all the light
and didn't create any reflections. Then I tried a dark grey ball,
which created some reflections, but the ball was grey, not black.
Somebody suggested on Real 3D mailing list, that a bowling ball
could have a 'wax' layer on the surface of the ball. So I created
a wax layer, which I made totally transparent and 100% reflective.
As you can see, the ball is now black on the middle, and there
are some reflections on the edges. Also there is a specular
highlight created by the lamp. (There should be an option to
adjust the color of the surface reflections, it would be much
easier to create these kind of surfaces that way.)
The positions of the pins have been calculated using Real 3D's
collision detection feature. I created the scene so that the
pins were in an initial position, like in a real bowling alley,
and then I threw the ball at them.
The motion blur was calculated with Real 3D. It is not intended
for still images, and doesn't look very good on them, but it
makes animations look much smoother.
