    Hi all,

    It's that time of the year again; The new game unveil means we need new renders.

    Link to Google Drive

    The link above includes folders for 8k, 4k, HD and 21:9 aspect ratio renders. I'll be adding more renders as time passes, including individual object renders and scenes. The first new addition will be re-rendering these with a white carpet instead of the red one.

    The renders were made using Blender 2.79 (which includes a new Denoising feature that speeds up render times by a factor of ten or more while retaining the quality you'd expect from a production render). I'm experimenting with different techniques for the field materials and lighting, so bear with me if certain things seem a bit off. The game objects in particular are a bit tricky since I don't have any in person to use as reference yet.

    I'd love some critique on these as well, and am willing to make new renders/scenes on request. Enjoy!

    Is good, many thanks.

    Is there any chance of a version of the "Arena" with the alliance stations?

    @jpearman Nice! Cody would be proud of you.

    Thanks! His renders of past games are what inspired me to get into this. Renders are a fascinating addition to my huge list of hobbies.

    @DarkMatterMatt Is good, many thanks.

    Is there any chance of a version of the "Arena" with the alliance stations?

    I can try that out on the white carpet version. The issue is that the alliance tape seems out of place when applied to a surface like a carpet, so it may not look good. I'm also trying to get a flat floor/background version with different lighting (similar to my In The Zone renders) looking good, but I'm not quite there yet.

    Hi JM, I'd like your permission for using a render as a banner/backdrop for a Google Classroom for a (homeschool) VEX team (a total of 6 students, and likely their parents would see it). Excellent work!

    Hi jmmckinney,
    Nice work on those renders! I would like your permission to use a render as background for a strategy board. Its a communication tool for game strategy that uses a whiteboard and magnets to replicate the game field layout.

    hi,
    Can I use these renders to draw out our team's driver and auton strategies? (it will be in our notebook)
    Thanks!
