Course Overview
Hi everyone my name is Kirt Haymore and welcome to my course Interior Rendering Strategies with Arnold and Maya. Arnold is a photorealistic and easy to use ray tracing renderer that has been put to the test in film studios around the world. Now Arnold is making its way into many other industries and in this course we will focus on Arnold's ability to create stunning interior renderings. But this course is more than just creating an image of an interior room. It's about telling a story and selling an idea to the viewer. Architectural renders have a purpose and that is what we will be focusing on throughout this course. Some of the major topics that we will cover include visualization concepts and how to apply them to our scene, creating a lighting setup that will add creative control to our hard and soft lighting, building simplistic and complex materials, adding realism to our scene with XGen, and then we will wrap things up with setting our final render output and doing some post adjustments. By the end of this course, you will know how to create a stunning image that will communicate your ideas to the viewer. Before beginning this course, you should have a basic understanding of Maya Modeling, UV layouts, and Arnold LIghts and Shaders. I hope you will join me in learning Interior Rendering Strategies with Arnold and Maya here at Pluralsight.
