Digital Lighting and Rendering
Duration: 20 hours
Teaching Methodology: Hands-on
OVERVIEW (under construction)
In this course, students learn how to use 3D Studio max to model, apply material, add lights and cameras, render still images and animate architectural or interior scenes. Scenes could be imported from AutoCAD as 3D or as 2D and fully modeled in Max.
Although this course is titled for architects and interior designers, it actually provides the necessary foundation knowledge for anyone who wishes to use 3DS Max. The end of the course focuses on the architect and interior aspect of the software.
Choose the correct method of modeling an object. Students explore principles of 3-dimensioning and apply them in the creation of 3D computer representations using 3ds Max software. Emphasis will be placed on creation of accurate models rendered with color.
Architects, interior designers, decorators, graphic designers, artists, animators, TV graphic designers, art directors and anyone who is interested in creating 3D presentations. This course provides the base knowledge for higher level courses such as Vray, Max Modeling, Max Animation, Lighting, Vue xStream, etc.
AutoCAD 2D and Photoshop are essential if you want to gain proficiency in architectural modeling and rendering. During the course, you will use readymade AutoCAD files to model in Max. You will also be given readymade material. In real life, you should be able to prepare these files yourself. You may learn AutoCAD 2D & Photoshop in parallel or later on.
