Hi! This is my first cycles render. I always hated cycles because of the noise, but it can render metallic parts much more realistic, so I decided to try myself in cycles, and create a full racing exhaust for a yamaha scooter.
25 samples, 1152 x 720 px, 30~35 mins render time on CPU only (INTEL Core2Duo E4600)
It was a lot of time for me to figure out, how to do the weldings at the segments, and I thought, I can’t do a proper welding in blender, so, I did loopcut and extrude at every segment, to emulate a welded metal feeling.
I’m not much of a UV expert either, so, it’s all material only, no textures.
I did the bolts and nuts using BoltFactory.
Please share your thoughts, but don’t go harsh, I am a real noob:D
The inspiration: Yasuni C30
