iPhone 4 w.i.p. 13/12

about 30mins work over lunhc today.

Slight tweak to the materials and lighting. Also added the 'home' button and volume up and down button details.

First attempt at lighting the screen. To do this I have put a plane in front of the screen with the screen mat in diffuse, then added self illumination,Kelvin 6500, then put an opacity map in the filter slot.

Still needs some work, but am keen for feedback as to whether this is the best method, and what I can do to improve it.



  1. Hey man,

    Gotta say nice render but you have some issues in the top corners where the black is. Looks like it is breaking up or something? Also the reflection of the other iphone looks strange. (See bottom of the left iphone). The hero reflection would look better going from top left to bottom right as well.

    Certainly a nice improvement too!

  2. Cheers mate, good observations.

    I have no idea what is going on with the reflection, I did notice before but not sure whats going on. Any ideas?

    Also I think the issue in the corners is missed polies in mat id select, so will fix that.

    Will try and change the reflection too, should just be a case of shifting my bounce card.

    Thanks again for the comments mate
