Duration: 7 hrs. 10 min.
Required Software: 3ds Max 2012, V-Ray 2.20.03, Photoshop CS5
In this 3ds Max tutorial we will learn about creating interior visualizations from start to finish. Throughout these lessons we will focus on creating an exterior visualization. We will go through several different stages including modeling and preparing vegitation models like grass and trees so we can use them in our scene as proxy. We also go through lighting, texturing and post-production when you will learn couple of techniques about how to make our renders looks better and more appealing.
