OK you maybe have already recognized that we worked on some cutout top view vegetation graphics for architectural designs to pimp your floor plan or site plans. This time we created a set of plan view plant graphics with different looks in different kind of shapes and geometries. We started with a more realistic look at thet top and tried to move over to more abstract versions of the same plant set. As each type comes along in different geometries you can easily combine the elements of each type (in one line) to create your own unique arrangement.

Update 1.2. for the “OpenArchiVIZpack” – our free download package for architecture visualization!
The “OpenArchiVIZpack” is pretty popular in the community! So we are happy to present you a new update with additional cutout entourage for architectural visualization. Until now we mainly focussed on cutout trees, plants and people in section view as well as textures and background images for your compositing.

In this tutorial we will show the procedure of making a grassy field in order to enhance realism in our exterior architectural visualizations. Therefore we will first model and texture the 3d grass blades and afterwards use a “Scatter Plugin” to randomly distribute the single blades of a large surface. With this technique you can create super realistic grass and lawn for your next exterior architectural rendering project.
Usually most private residences are surrounded by yards with short cut lawn so we should be able to render this kind of “foreground” on our own for your next architectural visualization job. In addition we share our grass blade textures with you, so grab this free download! But now let´s get started!

In this quick tutorial I will show you how to use cutout graphics or entourage like trees, persons etc. in ARCHICAD. These ready-to-use graphics without background often times are used in the post processing phase for architecture visualization. Here we want to use them in the 3D environment directly.

Corona Rendering Engine for 3DS MAX
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.
