Architectural visualisation, product visuals, photorealism, stylistic or NPR (non photorealistic rendering) for still images and animated sequences.
Clients want to know what something will look like before spending money on commissioning interior designers and architects to make it. Equally, a designer or animator maybe asked to output a 3D animation in a particular aesthetic / graphic style.
3ds Max, the industry standard 3d software, allows interior designers, architectural visualisers and designers to achieve a photorealistic visualisation of interior and exterior environments, products or graphic animation.
Taught through a series of demonstrations and exercises, this practical course will teach you the core aspects of lighting and rendering to create architectural environments, interiors, and spaces in non photorealistic rendering.
Using a production standard rendering system you will learn how to globally illuminate and render these scenes to a high level of realism or graphic style while giving you an in depth knowledge of the relationship between 3D materials, lighting and rendering.
By the end of this course you should be able to:
Autodesk 3ds Max is used in a wide range of industries. Architects, interior designers and engineers use 3ds Max to produce comprehensive 3D models and visualisations. The gaming, film and television industries use the application to produce stunning 3D animations.
It is intended for those who require the fundamental knowledge and skills to enable the user to migrate from 2D design to creating 3D animation and rendered photo-realistic images. It is recommended that delegates have a little working knowledge of Microsoft Windows.
You’ll learn how to work in a production environment, understand the mechanics of 3DS Max, be able to create 3D models using a variety of techniques, work with materials to texture your models, understand how to light a scene, be able to create animations and stage a scene.
