When it comes to architectural visualization, making an exterior render is always a challenging task. There are many things going on at once, and many light sources can result in great render times. All of that can be really hard to manage. In this course, Exterior Rendering Strategies with V-Ray and 3ds Max, you'll learn the methods and best strategies for successfully rendering exteriors in order to have a realistic scene, with the best time management as possible. First, you'll create light sources from existing geometry. Next, you'll explore how to use different displacement strategies. Finally, you'll learn how to use render elements to help with post production. By the end of this course, you'll have a complex exterior scene that will be post produced and portfolio ready. Software required: 3ds Max 2016, Photoshop CC.

An exterior render is a great way to display a project before execution, and knowing how to do a photorealistic exterior render in a manageable workflow can be a very useful skill to have.

In this course, we are going to render a complete exterior scene, learning a lot of useful techniques to reach a good result as fast as possible.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  1. Creating light sources from existing geometry
  2. Using Different Displacement strategies
  3. Using Render elements to help with post production
By the end of this course you will have a complete exterior scene, that will be post produced and portfolio ready.

Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic 3ds Max and Basic V-Ray Render.
