Introduction and Project Overview
Hello, and welcome in exterior visualization tutorial with 3-D Max V-Ray and Photoshop. I am Maciej Jura and I'm owner of visualization company working on small and big projects from all over Europe. In this tutorial, I want to show you the process of creating exteriors. On the following lessons, we create our building and then I show you how to model geometric grass and trees. Those are really high-quality models, so we are going to find a way how to deal with it and use V-ray proxies. Then we go ahead and add lighting to our scene and render this out. At the end, we move to Photoshop and I show you how to achieve better looks of our visualizations. So let's begin.
