How to achieve this style?

This is probably a really dumb question, but i've been playing around with lighting options to achieve a style similar to this render:

The idea is a simple. But I can't find anything as smooth as this.

I've tried numerous skyboxes to achieve the background, but I can't have shadows without having some kind of base which then doesn't blend.

I've also tried a "2 wall and floor" (like a photo studio setup) but you can clearly see where the edges meet.

Ideally, I should be able to move the camera anywhere and the floor and background seamlessly blend ....

I am going to assume there is a very obvious way of achieving this as I've seen it on lots of games but I just can't see it!


  • Two ways ive done this.

    1) use a curved background instead of two planes for floor and wall

    2) This one was more work but worked great. Create a floor plane and assign a shadow matte material (in 3DsMax) That will make it invisible but it will still show the shadows that fall on it. Then make your background all white

    You need to think through all the design and materials you will use when building this cafe. I recommend Fort Myers. They will show you the flooring options and find the best one for you.
