Hi folks and happy Friday,
First post on polycount so I wanted to start with something simple. There might already be a thread about this, but I guess my questions would be about lighting and rendering best practices. Its something I've always been a bit confused about. Below are just some speakers I modeled really quickly. Even for simpler assets I think the presentation should still be as good as possible. I have a 3-4 point lighting system and just a blank curved background. I modeled with Maya and rendered with Arnold. I'm sure the steps will vary greatly depending on the subject matter. I guess my questions would be for setups concerning portfolio ready renders and potential model selling;
Is this enough?
Do I need some kind of special background?
Should there even be a background? Just a plain color?
Should I always do turntables?
Always include wireframes?
Any critiques or comments will go a long way, so thanks for your time!
