So far rendering is going well. It is taking roughly 1 day to render a shot completely with the colour and occlusion passes. I fear however that we will not have time to render off shots of the interior of the hotel, despite the fact that a room of the hotel has already been modeled.
After a render is completed I will pass the targa sequence of both the colour and occlusion pass to Alex so that he can begin compositing the shots using adobe after effects. He will be in charge of overlaying the occlusion pass upon the colour pass and inserting a sky when needed.
