C o m: 3D Process / Post Process: tricks revealed!
Many of you have asked for my post production process…so here it is. I typically use AE (Adobe After Effects) for my post work, but for this post I’m demonstrating in PS (Photoshop) because most people use PS over AE for stills. However the principles apply to all software. Also, I’m trying to keep it “out-of-the-box”, rather than show a lot of plug-ins. I always suggest learning the techniques with the software, then after understanding how to create them, go get the plug-ins to make your job faster-not better. Some of you already know, but I do most of my modeling in SU ( SketchUp ). I also start materials and texturing in SU. Using Max 2011 has been great, because I can import SU files straight from Max without needing to export models from SU. During import I opt not to import the SU cameras. Some of the general settings for my A&D materials: If I can keep glossy samples to 8 then I do. Next I go to lighting. This is a flare pass for the lights. This image is a dummy people pass.

ICT Graphics Lab Introduction: A light probe image is an omnidirectional, high dynamic range image that records the incident illumination conditions at a particular point in space. Such images were used in Rendering Synthetic Objects into Real Scenes: Bridging Traditional and Image-Based Graphics with Global Illumination and High Dynamic Range Photography at SIGGRAPH 98 to illuminate synthetic objects with measurements of real light, and in a more recent SIGGRAPH 2000 paper to illuminate real-world people and objects. Light probes images have since become a widely used tool for realistic lighting in movies and video games. In 2001, we released a gallery of light probe images including images of Grace Cathedral, the Eucalyptus Grove, and St Paul's Bascillica. HDR Image Formats: Light Probe images are measurements of light in the real world, and thus are high dyanmic range. Panoramic Format: These probes have been released in a latitude-longitude panoramic format. Making Your Own Light Probes:

TUTORIALS A lot of people have been asking me how I create my renderings. Since I am finished with grad school, I decided to develop some tutorials that explain techniques I used throughout architecture school. Many of the techniques only require Sketchup and Photoshop. Others later on will be a little more advanced and involve rendering programs that can be downloaded for free. . Linear Workflow: a guide | David Fleet 3D Artist This has been the subject of discussions on many forums over recent years. I realised that there were all sorts of tutorials offering often conflicting information regarding the process. This is not the only way, just my way. I would like to thank my mate Ben Cowell and Phil Shoebottom for offering some clarity on a few points. SO, WHAT IS LINEAR WORKFLOW? Look at the above image, what is the difference between the image on the left and the image on the right? Vray and 3ds Max process the data in which to make an image in ‘linear space’, also known as Gamma 1.0, but by default all monitors show you the image with a Gamma of 2.2 (sRGB), which basically makes the image ‘look’ dark, although it actually isn’t dark at all. Unfortunately this has always been the case with 3D rendering, which means that many artists who don’t know about linear workflow learn to light scenes by using a handful of tricks to try and get results you’d expect in real life. This button is a little misleading.

Post-Production Trends in 3D Visualizations Advertisement Post-production might well be the most underappreciated part of creating 3D visualizations. It gives you the power to easily make some changes; put in the sky you like, add some dirt, make the colors more vibrant and even correct some little mistakes in your 3D mesh. Most of the traditional 3D artists tried to do as much as possible wihtin their 3D package since these packages were not focusing on post, but rather on the 3D products themselves. The techniques and styles of correcting images in post-production have changed a lot over the last couple of years. Different Styles of Post-Production This is what a 3D image should look like according to the corporate industry. This image, created by a Dutch company called “Trazar” explains exactly what the “standard” is. Some things that immediately come to mind: Here is another example, made by a company called “Archiform”. Same thing here: The colors are too vibrant.The glow of the sky makes the trees blue Degraded Photorealism Do:

PAINTING LIGHT: EXTERIOR GLASS - BLOG Not everyone has the capabilities to render huge models with a ton of lights. I am one of those people where more times than not I have to manually add light to my illustrations because I don't have the computing power. At first, this method can seem tedious. But, when you think about the time that it takes to insert lights into a model and then the time that it takes to render so many lights, knowing how to do this in Photoshop can be a great resource to have as a backup. There is a typical workflow I use that consistently yields clean, realistic results without much effort. I am using the urban snow scene that I posted a few months back as the base case for this tutorial. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

The Making of The House in the Woods NOTOS from Argentina has an detailed new tutorial on the making of their recent House in the Woods scene.Visit the NOTOS Facebook page to see more of their work. We created this image with the help of all the members of the studio in a period of seven business days. Everybody gave something to the project, and that is what made it really special. Notos art direction for this pic This is an image we created for an Argentinian studio named www.estudiobabo.com.ar.

BRUSHED STAINLESS STEEL (TUTORIAL) - BLOG Every so often, there comes a time when I need to illustrate a brushed stainless steel finish like the column in the above image. In my experience, adjusting the "shininess" settings in any rendering program to get that brushed look dramatically increases the rendering time. On top of that, it can take multiple test renderings to get the style I am hoping for. So... Most rendering software can create reflective surfaces easily. 1) In Kerkythea, select the material you want to have the brushed finish. 2) Once in the "Material Editor" dialogue box, right-click on the work "Reflection" and choose the "Add Color" icon. 3) In the "Select Color" dialogue box, choose a white color. 4) With the materials setup, render the geometry and open the rendering in Photoshop. 5) I now want to reselect this new layer so that when I blur the layer, it will maintain crisp edges. 6) At the top, choose "Filter>Blur>Motion Blur". 7) With the "Motion Blur" dialogue box open, go to the box marked "Angle".
