Create a beautiful 3D rendering of a still life
Ever wonder how films bring digital sets to life? Ever want to see one of your designs before you build it? Ever imagine a scene and wish you could show it to others?
If so, this class will teach you all you need to get started in digital rendering. Starting from scratch, this class will cover all the basics of digital modeling, setting up a compelling camera, lighting the scene, applying textures, and creating realistic materials to bring your image to life. It will also cover render settings and post-production tips to make your image pop.
What You'll Learn
The skills you learn and acquire in this class will prepare you for making beautiful images of any object or scene that you can dream up. You will learn the skills you need to visualize any design or scene you can imagine. We will use 3ds Max and Vray to detail and render a still life and Photoshop for post-production (all necessary software have free 30-day trials). If you’ve never used 3d modeling or image-editing software, no worries! I will teach you all the essentials you need to be creating and editing beautiful digital images on your own. And, in thirty days from the start of the class, you’ll have your first, hopefully of many, beautiful digital illustration that you created!
