Thursday, 24 November 2016 at 9:30 am - Saturday, 26 November 2016 at 5:00 pm (AEDT)
The visualization of buildings and architectural landscape projects is a very important part of project development. Clients want to see the finished result even before the first hole is dug. This offers many opportunities for 3D artists who are looking to expand their field of work.
CINEMA 4D offers numerous possibilities for creating impressive and effective architectural and landscape visualizations - if you know how. Impressive visualizations not only require good texturing and lighting skills but also the ability to correctly position imported CAD files in front of a background image and which CINEMA 4D tools should be used to achieve a convincing, photo-realistic result.
The Architectural Visualization course covers basic techniques and tools used in this field. The course content contains valuable know-how for optimizing workflow for bringing visions to life.
CINEMA 4D offers numerous possibilities that are difficult to discover if self-taught. This training conveys expert know-how and helps course participants create impressive visualizations for their clients faster and easier than before.
This course is perfect for those using Archicad and want to extend Cinerender in their workflow.
Pre-requisites: No previous skills required.
Each participant will receive 4x 1 hour Essentails Online Tutorials prior to the start of the course.
