3D Rotating Compass
Animated GIF of a realistic 3D compass which rotates with highlights across metal and links to an interactive 3D Virtual Compass.
Seven Thunder Software mapped the compass with diffuse colors, rendered to texture, then exported as a DAE file. The baked texture was modified with Photoshop. The metal shines with highlights based on light location.
The original compass model was provided by a third party.
However the model required some repairs to render well
including filling holes in the geometry with 3DS Max
