From Photon to Photograph
An introduction to Indigo Renderer Indigo Renderer is an unbiased, physically based and photorealistic renderer which simulates the physics of light to achieve near-perfect image realism. With an advanced physical camera model, a super-realistic materials system and the ability to simulate complex lighting situations through Metropolis Light Transport, Indigo Renderer is capable of producing the highest levels of realism demanded by architectural and product visualization.

Blender tutorials: 25 ways to create cool 3D effects Creating 3D art can be expensive. But thanks to creatives developing open source software, like Blender, everyone can get involved. In this article, we've rounded up the best step-by-step Blender tutorials from around the web. Improve your modelling, animating, rendering and compositing skills as you follow the projects and pick up tips from leading 3D designers.

Making of House in Matsubara - Ken’ichi Otani Architects Initial comments: while preparing an important model or working on some effect I always collect reference photos for itif I don't have to I don't use shortcuts, it doesn't matter if the rendering takes 2 or 12 hours if the final effect is worth itI have a rule that the quality of rendering depends on good materials, the settings are of secondary importance I prepared a tutorial describing my work on a competition project "House in Matsubara". I would like to share my experience in preparing more non-standard parts than modelling, texturing and 3D scene edition.

Download - MakeHuman Docs What's an "alpha"?This is not a full-function release and, most notably, does not provide functionality to allow the figure to be posed. It does include examples of all of the different tools and techniques that this software will provide to enable you to easily model the anatomy of a human figure, although some of these functions are not yet complete and are not necessarily in their final form.

SITEX GRAPHICS : AIR AIR is an advanced 3D graphics renderer with a unique architecture and extensive features designed for the rapid production of high-quality images. AIR is a hybrid renderer, combining the advantages of scanline rendering - fast rendering of complex scenes, motion blur, and depth of field - with the flexibility of on-demand ray tracing for accurate reflections, soft shadows, global illumination, and caustics. AIR supports a broad range of geometric primitives, including polygon meshes, trimmed NURBs, subdivision meshes, curves, particles, and implicit surfaces. All primitives are supported in their natural form; no pre-meshing is required. AIR also provides true (sub-pixel) displacement and high-dynamic range (HDR) input and output.

Following the publication of his &tradition renders, I asked Lasse if he can share more of his photographic approach insight to rendering. Although we all seem to compare rendering to photography in the end, I think you’ll learn a thing or two about how to get started with this in mind after reading this article. Enjoy it!

Thea Render The new integrated plugin for 3dsMax has just arrived and licensed users can grab the plugin as a free update! Bundle with Motiva Colimo and create infinite variations from a single render. Perform luminance and illuminance analysis and generate reports out-of-the-box. RAMDOM CONTROL : ARION RENDER Key features: Interactive rendering and editing, CUDA empowered, displacement, photo-realistic materials, physically-based, unbiased... Arion raw raytracing speed is vs. quality ratio is unprecedented and can produce the cleanest and the most beautiful artworks. Thanks to its carefully engineered rendering core, it outputs an astonishing amount of work in the same time as traditional renderers. Beside a deep optimization of the core that affects raw speed, Arion 2's new sampling strategy leads to an even faster image convergence.

ZBrush matcap in Blender Hello there, I'm a french user of Blender and I found a simple way to add the MatCap look in Blender materials with the use of material node. To see the matcap in the 3d viewport you need to active the glsl preview.-First step: Get the matcap ! In ZBrush, open the modifiers options of the Material panel and move your mouse cursor over the little bottom picture: (i.e.

Making of House in Nada First of all, I am very pleased that I can present you the workflow that stands behind "House in Nada" / Fujiwarramuro Architects.
