Unity3D's rendering capabilities weren't enough for real-time animation in 2017. So, I've used serious amount of Post-processing. ( "Scion" for lens effects,  "Colorful" for color grading, "SSAO" for ambient occlusion, "NGGS" for soft shadows )

In 2017, I made a series of animation for Cin Ali Museum.

Each book contains a different theme. We worked on 3 books of Cinali. We made 2 animations and a VR application for the museum. This Book about nostalgic park in Ankara!
