Mega Speculars

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm really interested in trying to simulate the wonderful specular effects as seen a lot of today CG movies. One in particular which grabs my attention is the specular effect on the Naboo space cruiser in the Phantom Menace. I've attached a pic below. While i realize that this image is most probably an airbrush pic, I do remember vividly the effect in the film, of the really bright sunlight reflection running down the body of the ship.


would this be put in mostly in post do you think, or is it possible to go a long way to achieving this effect with perhaps a suitable HDRi setup?


I'm interested in getting this effect with animations by the way, not just stills.


Any ideas anyone?
