The ART of Modelling and Rendering

The ART of Modelling and Rendering encapsulates the experiences of several national and international computer graphics artists and provides tutorials describing a variety of techniques, methods, tricks and suggestions to help you obtain highly effective photorealistic 3D models and images.

A very important additional element is the attached DVD, which contains most of the files needed to carry out and test the tecniques explained in the tutorials. The software predominantly used in the tutorials includes: 3ds Max for modelling, V-Ray for photorealistic rendering and Photoshop for post-production. Marvelous designer is also used in the tutorial “Ishigami Project by Alessandro Brotto” to explain how to create textiles. In some tutorials plug-ins are used to improve the modelling or to map textures. The book aims to show off the features and potential of computer graphics as more than just a visualisation tool, but also as a means to transform a digital image into a true artwork. The book is intended for all users and enthusiasts of modellling and rendering software – those who use 3ds Max, V-Ray or others. In fact, the purpose of the tutorial series is to highlight techniques and suggestions that you can apply when designing 3D graphics.

The book contains the following tutorials:
