    Posting up a rough WIP layout of The Cage Conference Room for those interested. Since my camera match is so-so I'd say use this with a grain of salt. A scale is on each view set at 1' increments.

    That's it! That's an awesome find. I thought it was a reflection on the table but now zoomed in I see that it's in the leaf insert. Thanks for finding that @BK613 !

    Purely accidental find. I had noticed that the base of the projector cabinet appeared to be flush with the base of the table and I speculated that they may have truncated one end of the table to allow for that. I was looking for such a truncation in the WNMHGB images when I notice the outline of the insert.

    Thanks @starbuck and again super thanks @BK613. The leaf insert allowed me to stretch the table out and move on with the modeling :) Some temp textures and lighting. I'm learning how to do PBR materials so a bit of trial-and-error coming up

    Having worked with PBR materials for quite a few years now, I will say that it appears your materials on the Burke chairs are a little too glossy. I'd raise the roughness values a tad. Otherwise it's looking great!

    I agree and thanks @Donny. I've got the colors on color node and nothing else on the BSDF shader so it's definitely defaulting to glossy. I just located a good writeup on Lightwave's PBR materials on Foundation3D and will be doing a bunch of tests.

    Trying to find a good workflow to create the different maps. I think the roughness and specularity look close enough to the screen version but I realize now that I should use something closer to the on screen lighting for the colors... :)

    Just skimmed through this thread. I love everything you're doing, but especially the photo-matching. That's the thing I always want to see people do when they model sets and props. It's such a nice thing to go beyond something looking about 95% accurate, to showing that something IS accurate by laying it over reference images.

    Also, I'm very impressed with your Burke chairs. Your first image actually had me doubting I was looking at models because their geometry was so dead on. I've seen a lot of chair models over the years and yours look better than any of them. However, I was a little unsure if you got the points of the feet just right. They look slightly softer than the more angular look of the real chairs. If you want to ask for details from some people who own some, I can perhaps facilitate that.

    Also, just a general observation. Do you suppose that viewer was built around a commercial item or was it completely custom? I've been looking around to see if I can find a vintage rear projection screen that matches the characteristics of this item.

    @Lt. Washburn - Thanks :) Yeah the Burke chairs were quite challenging. The points on mine are softer and I think that comes from one of the reference photos I was using. But now looking at the chairs in other scenes it does look like on average they are more angular in profile so I'll update my chair base to match.

    Regarding the TV, I think it might be built off of something like this slide projection TV or a newer version of this Bell & Howell Projection TV. It's the 45 degree angle thing on the side of the viewer and the slide projector-like movement that suggests a projection TV. But I don't know what exactly it was based off of so your guess is as good as mine :)
