Interior Detailing

Two types of interior component details will be added. The first is contextual detail for the building exterior. When the building is viewed from an exterior view, the windows will allow a view into the interior. Adding a minimal amount of component detail provides an important backdrop and context for the building.

The second type is detailing relative to a given interior scene, in this case, a cafe bar. The goal is to create a specific interior design scene for rendering. The context interior detail is leveraged and built upon to create a realistic interior scene for rendering.

After the interior of the building is accessible, the contextual interior detailing can be added (Fig. 35.12 through Fig. 35.16).
