This video starts with my Safety Pin scene. It contains a still and after a while an ambient occlusion pass goes through it. This is followed by a lighting breakdown, closeups of the spools of thread, and a closeup of one of the packages in the scene. You then see the whole image again. Following that, the second asset full image shows up. After a few seconds the ambient occlusion pass goes through. This is followed by a close up of the skull. Then a close up of the books as well as a few other objects in the scene. Following that are renders of the two lights used in the scene.
