This is Kanak and I want to explain you here exclusively on tonytextures.com how you can easily set up a daylight interior scenery in 3ds MAX by using VRay rendering engine with a bit of Photoshop correction of the RAW rendering afterwards.
I would love to call my approach rendering through the eye of a photographer. I think this is the best way for you to learn how to render without knowing a thousand of parameter. I will go through following steps to explain my method: Read more →
Here it is: Our free strip parquet texture for free! The texture has a pretty good resolution of 4096 px x 4096 px and covers a real live surface of ca. 2.00m x 2.00m. Thus you can use it easily also for texturing larger floor areas in your 3d interior architectural visualization. Thanks to the large real live surface that is covered by the texture an unpleasant tiling effect will be avoided. The wood texture can be downloaded for free here:
Here you can download your free set of three seamlessly tileable hedge textures. You can use it for your private as well as for your commercial projects:
There are many ways to visualize a hedge. Especially in a 3D rendering a 3D model of a hedge is likely the best way to get a realistic look. But often times you need a quick-and-dirty solution especially when you want to add a hedge to an existing illustration. But also when you have to colorize e.g. sections or elevations a seamlessly tileable hedge texture could be very useful.
If you want to use the texture in Adobe Photoshop it is a good idea to create a pattern. Then you can use the texture to fill also large selections in your image with it. Test it – you can create nice effects with it.
It is also a good choice if you want to get a more abstract and less photorealistic look. You can play around with the saturation and the transparency of the texture to make the hedge not that dominant.
If you have to create a complete presentation of your architectural design often times a material library is a good idea to visualize also the look-and-feel of your building. Collect the characteristic materials and textures of your design and sort them in a separated area of your presentation. Therefore these kind of textures also work fine – yes also textures of vegetation like the hedges.
We are curious about your ideas how to use the textures – please drop us a line in the comment box.

When preparing architectural renderings and illustrations for potential customers you often want to add some flower cutouts, cutout trees, people silhouettes or bushes to your pure rendering when you export it from the 3D tool. These are graphics with transparent backgrounds that could be used as staffage (trees, people, flowers etc.) e.g. in Adobe Photoshop to bring life to your architectural scenery. Read more →
