During this two-day workshop, aimed at everyone from basic to advanced Rhino users, you will learn how to use Enscape and V-Ray, powerful plugins that can help visualize your designs in stunning quality. You’ll gain experience in real-time rendering to support your design workflow and create high-end renders of your Rhino projects.
We will start the first day with modeling exercises in Rhino. While creating the 3D model, we will continuously use real-time rendering with Enscape to better understand our design and explore ways to communicate it. When the design is complete, we will cover the basics of visualizing our project with the help of Enscape and V-Ray. We will showcase how to create and use materials and set up lighting scenarios to add depth and drama to your scenes. Finally, we will make use of the camera, which will bring us to the creation of stunning renders and videos.
The second day will feature a deep dive into V-Ray, which we’ll use to render a photorealistic image of our design. We will curate our scene with the help of Chaos’s ecosystem, then explore how to make use of composition, lighting, custom materials, and atmospheric and lens effects. Finally, you’ll find out how to post-process images within V-Ray.
We will end the workshop with tips and tricks from our experts.
In the next episode of The Chaos Campus Live Show we'll meet Alessandro Michelazzi, an internationally awarded photographer and educator based in Florence.
