Corona renderer is a photorealistic ray tracer, used by computer graphic artists for the final frame production rendering mainly for architectural and product visualizations. Corona has a free version, and also a commercial release. The last couple of years they attracted thousands of users, and a lot of attention in the architectural visualization industry. So that is the reason why we want to take a closer look and spot some light on the capabilities and the workflow when it comes to rendering architecture visualizations with 3DS MAX and the Corona render engine.

In this tutorial Apostolos from Greece will show us his workflow for an architecture visualization project with 3DS MAX and the free Corona Renderer which creates pretty good photorealistic renderings. You should check it out!
In this tutorial we will try to go through the basic steps of architectural visualization using one of our recent projects. The client requested to create a number of still visuals of a new modern-classic private residence with a big lawn garden, placed in Athens, Greece.
We had a very tight deadline so when we finished the project and delivered the stills (clear sky shots), we had the time and the chance to work further on our project to improve the overall quality and play around with different setups (cloudy mood and night shots). I want to share with you the different steps as well as the lessons learned in this project. Read more →
In this beginner tutorial we want to give you an insight how to create quickly a sectional drawing in Sketchup for your next and add some visual elements for e.g. a architecture presentation. We use a quite simple model here and go quickly through the steps to give you an idea about the general workflow. We also use and link to various of our free archi-viz graphics so do not miss to get through the steps and grow your own library of graphics for architecture visualization on the side Enjoy!

Professional cutout tree and plant graphics are not only required for perspective architecture visualizations but also for plan views. With the help of the top view graphics you can bring life to your next architecture presentation. Read more →
An impressing architecture visualization does not only show the building itself, but should rather transport emotions as well! For that reason quality architecture entourage is quite important to create good architecture illustrations.
Of course there are standard elements like persons, plants and trees, but from time to time also a swarm of flying birds is used to transport emotions like vastness or freedom Read more →
