Makings of a Game Designer #1

Being in my first year at Salford University studying Computer & Videos Games (or CVG as we like to call it). This segment will be about my different tasks I am currently doing, having trouble with, taking on and any little detail that has to do with my life within my path towards my career.

Today and yesterday I spent the best part of 2 hours of my time trying to figure out why a light in 3Ds MAX 2012 would not show up onto the camera view point. The model I have made is for my Digital Graphics assignment is a vast dark sadistic deadly forest within the country of Japan (if you want to know more about the forest I have based it off, it is called Aokigahara). I have only modelled a little part of the forest, as I do not need to create the whole thing for just a short run through for my Digital Graphics product I want to create.

The run through is complete but as I am trying to focus on the black & white aspect of colours within the forest, the black being the forest itself and the white being the light the character is running towards. Although I have used 3Ds MAX 2012 before and used lighting with a camera view point; no matter what I did changed the fact that the light was not viewable through the camera’s view point. It got to the point where I was getting annoyed so I decided to walk away and come back to it with some more knowledge into the problem.
