'3D Studio Max'


Making Of ' Bedroom White & Wood'

by Ramon Zancanaro
 



Software Used :



3ds Max, V-Ray



Hello everybody! It’s a great honor to write this Making Of. I would like to say thank you to everyone that has supported me in making this image. I’d also like to thank 3DTotal for giving me the opportunity to show you a little bit more about this work. I believe that when I show all my settings and the way I work, I’m not only helping other people but I’m helping myself too.

This Making Of is mainly going to focus on my lighting, rendering and textures and I hope you enjoy it. I’m available to answer any question by email at: ramon_sunset@hotmail.com

Fig.01 – 03 show my views. You can see the position of the lights and also the whole wireframe.

Fig.03

The top view shows the direct light position (Sun). To simulate the sun I used a V-Ray sun. For the environment I put in a V-Ray sky, with a Sun node on to a V-Ray Sun. The settings are showed in Fig.04.


Fig.04

I used a V-Ray camera for all views. The basic settings can be seen in Fig.05 and some parameters were changed from one camera to other to fix the DOF.


Fig.05

The render settings I used are simple. I selected the hybrid method using Brutal force (as primary bounce) and Light Cache (as secondary bounce). I put a lower light cache in to provide a bit more contrast and reduced the blend color on floor.

This scene has a Gamma setting 2.2, but I changed the exposure control. I also used Reinhard color mapping to make a linear method, where the colors are better.

I don’t like to use Ambient Occlusion, because it’s a technique that changes the illumination too much. But using Ambient Occlusion with GI produces a good result and I recommend giving it a try.

The AA filter I used was Area with a high value to lose some definition. I used a high value because it’s a big resolution (Fig.06).

Its just simply amazing what you have created. Its an interior scene made by just a software and yet its just so good. Some times i wonder if i m putting in as much efforts as required.

You must not be told that you are good. And no matter how many times its been said it would it is not over emphasised.

Its good that you can share your knowledge with total strangers for almost nothing at all.

I pray that soon I will be able to also post something that looks close to good.

I m just so over joyed

Thanks

Hi Ramon,

Your work in fantastic! in the Making Of ' Bedroom White & Wood' why do you use a vray plane under the throw? I'm new to smax and have seen this technique used by other good visualisers.
