I’ve started a new project of an interior luxurious penthouse, where most rooms have floor to ceiling windows. The problem is that you’d expect to see a view of the outside! I was wondering how people tackle this issue to make it look realistic?
Obviously I know I could put in blind/curtains to hide the outdoors more, but a big part of what I’m going for is being able to see outside and see an amazing view (e.g. a city).
I’ve looked at other projects on youtube that seem to use image planes to do this, but I found they just didn’t look very realistic. I figured I would need to make some 3D assets, but I don’t want to kill the engine with loads of models in the background. Anyone with any experience on this, how much of the background would you make in 3d (plus how detailed?) and at what distance from the windows can you get away with image planes?
Any help would be appreciated
I’m also writing a research article on this issue for university, so the more I can learn the better! I’ve found various bits already about it, but to find out how it’s done by other professionals would be great!
