Why take this course
In this final course in the Architectural Visualization series, David will focus on the final result of the renders obtained from the previous course. He will go over the refining steps needed to create a realistic, stunning and artistic image. You will learn how to position the elements to get a great composition, how to adjust the lighting in the scene, and adjust the materials to get the perfect render image.
Various software will be used, like Autodesk 3Ds Max, Corona Renderer, Adobe Photoshop, Marvelous Designer, and Substance Painter to name a few. This course is a continuation of the Architectural Visualization - 3D production course.
Learn how to produce amazing visuals
David really gets into the details about how to get a stunning visual image. You will learn how to reframe your scene and set the camera just right to get the perfect shot. David shows you how to set up a background with buildings in Photoshop and how to match realistic exposure between the interior and exterior.

Finetune your visual composition
We start by analyzing the renders from the previous course and understand what can be improved. David gives various tips and tricks about what to look out for. From choosing between 8-bit and 16-bit images, reframing your 3d scene to get the perfect composition and various other settings to be considered.
