We are given 10 hours to light up our Christmas Tree making use of Maya Lighting Setup, final gather, global illumination, physical sun and sky, image based lighting, mental ray, etcetcetc.
I took about 8 hours to complete, or rather, not exactly 'complete' but i had to stop as i was literarily shivering inside out due to hunger and cold.
I think it could have been much better as there are still many things i still do not yet know as hypershade, etcetc.
But i am quite happy with how i managed to ''buff up and sex up'' the tree and its Xmas decors and lightings and all of its over all colours, mood and atmosphere combined.
Now that my Christmas tree and lights are up, I hope to wish one and all, in advance, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! :D
