Could you give me some examples of the creative decisions you’ve made on projects?
I’ve implemented many creative elements within projects over the years in my career, from giant women stepping out of screens, having Alice in Wonderland as an inspiration, to sketching with light.
I think there's going to be a big push in the arch vis industry, especially in Australia, and certainly from DIAKRIT, to look at ways that we can be more creative and expressive with marketing projects. As opposed to: “Here's a photorealistic render, your brochure looks great, and the building looks real—but there's no sense of creativity to it.”
What do you like about V-Ray for this kind of work?
Typically when I'm doing a render I don't go past the light cache stage. I can see pretty much everything I need to see just in a light cache. Sometimes I set a progressive render for a few minutes, and that's enough to get a sense of how the image is going to end up.
I just love the speed at which V-Ray can just show me something very, very quickly.
