Illuminated Backdrops

Create 3D Scenes with Illuminated Backdrops Using 2D Images

   Project Overview

In this project we will explore once again the power of illuminated 3D objects. We will use 2D images to create a 2D scene and then create an illuminated backdrop with a reflected floor element. We will also add surface effects to the floor for added realism. I also added a bonus video that demonstrates how to modify the existing scene with new images and colors without starting over. Essentially creating a 3D scene template that you can modify in a variety of ways.

What you will learn:

• Create 3D scene using 2D images
• Add illumination to mesh images for backlit effect
• Add Reflections and Surface Effects
• and much more!
