Hi. I have a project I'm working on where I need a virtual set of an old style village, doesn't have to be super complex like the whole town, maybe just a small cluster of houses on each side of the road. I want to move the camera through it as well as composite some people living there.
After watching Rodypolis's tutorial on creating a 3d room, I was wondering if it might be worth trying to create simple buildings using planes with textures and photoshopped images on them. Do you think I could get decent results with this or would I be better off building the village with a 3d modelling program 1st? I'm not creating award winning films here, but I would like it to look halfway decent.
-edit- Actually I just been reading about 360 degree panoramic images. Perhaps I could create one of these images and create a large plane and curve it around (if that's possible), or angle 2 planes like this "/\"? I'm not sure, I will have to look into this more tomorrow.
