Hi all,

The video below is my first Modeling and Tracking Demoreel. I have been learning this particular subject(3D Modeling) for the past one and half years. My ambition is to achieve big in the VFX industry. I will post more demoreels in my Vimeo Channel soon.

1) Audi R8 LMX 2015

This is the latest model of Audi R8 Series and i have modeled the same. I have used polygon modeling concepts and some NURBS objects. I have modeled the car in Autodesk Maya 2014 and rendered using KeyShot Version 4.

2) 2003 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200

I have made some modifications in it to look like the Indian Bullet Motorcycle manufactured by Royal Enfield. I have modeled the bike in Maya 2014 and rendered with Keyshot Version 4.

3) A 3D Visualization of a Basketball Court.

This was just a visualization which came out in 3D in the form of modeling. No reference was used. Modeled in Maya 2014 and rendered in Keyshot Verion 4.

4) Automobile Pistons

This model was also more of a visualization but with a basic reference. Modeled in 3DS Max 2013 and rendered with Mental Ray (2nd and 3rd Image in the video) and Keyshot Version 4 ( 1st Image in the video).

5) Solar Torch

This was done with a reference. A torch which can be charged with a Solar Panel. Modeled in 3DS Max 2013 and rendered in Mental Ray.

6) Largescale Solar Power Plant

This largescale solar power plant was modeled with an image of a plan. Modeled in seperate parts in 3DS Max 2013 ; arranged and rendered in Mental Ray, Maya 2014.


I have just started my VFX classes in college. So shot some footages and tracked them.

Both footages had distortion. I removed the distortion in Nuke and exported it to Boujou for tracking and camera solving procedures. I then imported them in Maya 2015 and placed the cones and matched them.

I am now learning other concepts in VFX and will complete the same by June end. Will update my demoreel soon.

Thank You
