Project #3 Update: Shaders and Tracking


  • Reflections work in chrome spheres but not in a plane that is made to be reflective. I tried different materials on the plane, adjusted specularity and refraction, and tried to rotate the position of the aiSkyDome, but I am still not sure why this is happening.
  • Scale of scene and placement of objects
  • The dancer motion capture data starts on frame 425 and I’m not sure how to adjust this so that it starts on frame 1 instead.


Professor Gaynor showed me how to offset the animation of an alembic file. The following controls were located in a tab on the attribute editor. By making the frame offset – 425, I was able to start the animation much closer to frame 1.
