In this tutorial we want to show you how to render a photo-realilstic interior scenery with Corona Renderer and 3ds MAX. Lightning is always crutial when it comes to architecture visualization and especially for interior design the lightning can make the difference. The intersting part here is that we had professional photographs of a private residence where we have also been involved in the design process and now tried afterwards to model and render like the photograph 😉
So it is really a nice case study to get the most out of the rendering skills and compare it to the realistic photos made by professionals! So without further ado – hope you enjoy it: [Read more…] about 3DS MAX + Corona Tutorial: Architecture Rendering vs. Photo
How to create a rainy mood in Photoshop?
Architectural visualization should awake emotions so it is quite imporant to create the right atmosphere in your rendering! Typically most renderings shows sunny spring weather with light blue sky and perfect green trees. But sometimes you want to stand out or show your architectural design in another mood.

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! [Read more…] about Tutorial: How to Make and Render Super Realistic 3d Grass with 3DS MAX
