For any Harry Potter fans out there. Little passion project of mine.
I know has been done many times before, but I wanted to try out my own castle layout.
I want to put a few nice PBR materials on everything (walls and roofs…) and hope it will look pretty in Eevee. We’ll see.
Also please excuse the screen space Eevee AO, I plan to bake AO with cycles if everything goes well.
Most is actually based on models ripped directly from the 6th PC game. I went in and remodeled everything with more detail, cleaner and much easier to texture. Only the boat dock is taken from the 7th game.
The back of the castle and the surrounding landscape is custom because the game version felt quite unnatural to me.
I’ll be happy to share the blend file if you wanted to take a look.
Your offer to share the file is very kind, but I don’t think I would have time to really study it. I was mostly curious about your source materials. Both my kids were big Harry Potter fans when they were young. The books bring back lots of good memories of reading to them when they were little.
Its pretty incredible model. I’m well versed with cycles but fairly inexperienced with eevee. I am completely lost by your world lighting atmosphere node setup. I wanted to know if there was a quick way to decrease all lighting to be comparable to moonlit? I temporarily disconnected the atmosphere node and hide the sun to see what would happen and the distant mountains still appear bright white. I wanted to see more of what the fountain area in front of the great hall would look like much darker like at the end of Deadly Hallows part 2 during the epic wand battle between Harry and V.
