Have you ever found yourself staring at your render output and ponder over it’s lack of photo realism. Have you wanted to get into Architectural Visualization, but felt it might be very tough? Do you have basic knowledge of 3ds Max and don’t know where to go next? Have you searched to get a course that takes you right from modelling right into rendering a photo realistic scene?

Well then you are not only at the right place, but you get an added bonus – We do 2 Architectural Visualization Projects – Right from Scratch in both these scenes. So you not only learn new skills, new workflow, new way of looking at lighting, but also get to revise your skills simultaneously in the same course! How great is that?!!

But wait, I also tell you how to do some basic post processing after rendering out your scenes to get the final kick!

We have more – we not only use 3ds Max, Photoshop, as from the title you might’ve guessed, we also jump into VRAY & Marvelous Designer. Vray is used for texturing, lighting and rendering. 3ds Max for modelling the scenes obviously, Marvelous Designer to make the cloth elements of the scene. It’s a special software for cloth only. 3ds Max also does it but if you can cut a vegetable with a knife, why use a scissor to do that right?!

Lastly, you get the model files for free usage. The references used in this course were picked up from google images. Design isn’t mine but the models are.

Too much right?!

At the time of recording this course, I am loading up SCENE 1 into the course, and SCENE 2 will be gradually added over the next 2 weeks as the editing is done.

Now what do you need for this course?

You need to have access to the following –

  • PC capable of running 3ds Max
  • 3DS Max, MD, Photoshop and VRAY. Except for vray there is trial for all.
  • Access to internet as we will search for textures and I will provide you with links.

What are the prerequisites in terms of knowledge for the course?

  • You should be familiar with the basics of 3ds max interface, some basic modelling, texturing. If you are a complete beginner, then you can go through my free course called 3ds Max Learn Basics Foundation Course from my Instructor page.
  • You should be familiar with VRAY and Photoshop. For MD, I give a 1 minute tour along with our course itself.

So in short, it is kind of an intermediate level course. Nonetheless, I am always here, you can send me a message asking doubts if any and we will gather mountains to clear it! 😀

What will you gain at the end of this course?

  • You have added 2 scenes to your portfolio.
  • As mentioned, you get to learn and practice via the 2 scenes in same course.
  • You learn to make your own vray materials.
  • You Understand 3D Lighting.
  • You learn to set renders for fast rendering.
  • You learn to make your own textures in photoshop.
  • Learn to MD a bit, so that you have realistic models.
  • You learn how to get realistic renders.
  • You also learn how to work with render elements section and a lot lot more!

I’ll be launching a ton of such quality rich courses in future!
