Arch-viz whiz Alexandre Jarek explains the 3ds Max workflow he followed to craft this IKEA-inspired ideal home


Hello everybody! First of all, I'd like to thank the 3dtotal team for asking me to write my second making-of for their website. This is an honor and also a great pleasure!

The main objective was to recreate an ambiance that I found on IKEA's website. This was also an opportunity to improve my modeling skill with Marvelous Designer 3.

So the first step was to gather references picture of the scene. In the end I used 5 or 10 images.
I also took some external references from different 3D artists such as Juraj Talcik, Ramon Zancanaro, and BBB3Viz


First of all, I started by setting up 3ds Max's unit system and made sure that I use Linear Work Flow. I'm using 3ds Max 2014 so I can't find the Gamma options under Preference / Gamma & Lut anymore. The only way to do this is to change the CurrentDefaults file by applying the InputGamma setting at 2.200000 and the OutputGamma to 2.200000.

Changing settings


There wasn't anything hard to do during the modeling process in this project, except for the bed and fabrics. For that I had to use Marvelous Designer 3 to recreate realistic folds and match the reference pictures. Instead of words I'll show you some wireframe views.

Hi Alexandre. Excellent images. The video for the post processing seems to be deleted. May I ask, did you only use Vray sun without a Vray sky in the environment slot?
