3ds Max, Photoshop, Misc

Next I set the lighting, which is the part that interests me the most in any project. For this project I used a vray_sun with the addition of a vray_sky in the environment map button (Fig.09).

For the interior, I utilized only the photometric lights (Fig.10) located to simulate the real position. Like any visual, the use of the camera is important. I tried to position mine to emphasize the entire architecture without necessarily seeing everything (Fig.11).

Once this was established, I went to the parameters of V-Ray and I set Global Illumination with the irradiance map as the primary bounces and lightcache as the secondary bounces. I did not use many other settings as that would have extended the timing. I had in my mind the final result and that was enough.

One very useful thing for the final result was to set in the color mapping the exponential for the final rendering (Fig.12).

With the render I activated different render elements including wire color, AO, reflection, refraction and some lighting passes (Fig.13).

Everything was mixed in Photoshop, and after assembling the various steps I did an initial slight color correction (Fig.14).

[QUOTE=bambambam;861356]Come on.. this is not making of.. what a joke.. he didnt even explain material setups, lighting values, postowork explanation.. there is nothing useful here..Remove it from making of as this is not a making of..[/QUOTE]This is not the tutorial! Making of is the story of work creation. Author chooses the topic of his article by himself. If you want to study the lighting setup, buy training DVDs or ask the author! So, be more respectful.2 authorThanks for this article. That was very interesting.

With regards to Making Ofs it is up to the artists what they choose to focus on and they are not all intended for beginners. Also please note that many of our contributors are not native English speakers and therefore their Making Ofs are likely to be less detailed because of this. While we appreciate that this means you will find some more informative than others, we believe it is important to give everyone a chance to share their practices and showcase their work.

Well, it is more like "i got passed every defender and scored", withour explaining how you passed defenders... I am an advanced user, so I can understand some of what and why you did, but most of people wont.
