Description

Throughout this 3ds Max and V-Ray tutorial, we'll go through the complete modeling and rendering workflow for three architectural interior scenes. You'll learn how to light and render both day and night scenes, as well as create your own fast-rendering architectural materials. You'll learn about the various modeling techniques essential to architectural workflows including working with CAD plans; modeling couches, chairs, tables, and kitchens; and you'll even learn to create flowing curtains and bedding using cloth simulations. By the end of this 3ds Max and V-Ray training, you'll be able to work and think like an interior architect, model and render any piece of furniture, and easily be able complete your work within very short deadlines. Software required: 3DS Max 2012, V Ray 2.0, AutoCAD 2014, Photoshop CS3.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Micha Koren, and I'm a designer and digital artist at Le Kore 3D Visuals. My recent work includes spending two years in Singapore to collaborate on the design of a new and exciting W hotel resort. I have also been overseeing the visualization of several high-rise developments and interior projects in countries such as France, Malaysia, and Myanmar. As a recurring tutor on Digital Tutors, I am lucky to create these courses that sum up every bit of experience that I have gained from these past 10 years in the design and architecture industry. And I'm especially excited to be able to share this insight with you today. In this course, we're going to learn how to model and render the interiors of an architectural dream house in 3Dmax, V-Ray, and Photoshop. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include: learning how to import and work with interior CAD files, how to model the essential furniture such as kitchens, built-in cupboards, and custom chairs, learning how to import and adapt furniture that you may have downloaded from the internet. You will learn how to find the quickest route to setting up creative lighting and camera angles. You will learn how to animate light and interior objects. And lastly, we will look at how to tune V-Ray to get the fastest high quality renders possible. By the end of the training, you will have learned how to significantly boost your abilities and speed in modeling and rendering detailed architectural interiors. You will be able to simplify your tasks and get your workouts to your clients in a fraction of the effort. I'm excited to work with Digital Tutors, and especially excited to show you just how easy these techniques are, and how quickly you can do the same. So let's get started with the first lesson.
