Quickly Rendering Architectural Visualizations in Maya and Maxwell: Details
In the above tutorial, Stanislav Poritskiy, guest tutor, will cover the multiple stages of preparing the geometry for rendering, setting up UVs, materials, textures, as well as proper lighting for the scene. The tutorial will also cover camera settings to make your image more suitable for architectural visualization styles. There will be both a day and night time scene setup in this 2 hour tutorial, so readers will learn the important differences between both lighting conditions.
By the end of this tutorial you will have a solid foundation for architectural visualizations. This knowledge can be carried over to all other visualization and 3D programs.
