What will you learn in this 3ds Max & V-ray course?

3ds Max is the industry standard modeling and rendering software for visualizations. V-ray is a plugin that adds the ability to easily create photorealistic images to 3ds Max. This course focuses on photorealistic 3d renderings. This course IS NOT for modeling in 3ds Max.

This course will teach you how to use V-ray + 3ds Max to design realistic 3D interiors. This includes:

  • Learn the basics of 3ds Max, including the interface, tools, selection and transform tools, and how to save projects
  • Learn how to set up a project, assign v-ray, and adjust your render settings
  • Learn how to add cameras, compose a shot, and adjust your settings
  • Learn how to use VRaySun and Dome VRayLight & HDRI to add natural lighting to your scene
  • Learn how to use VRayLight, VRayles, and VRayLightMix to add artificial lighting to your scene
  • Learn how to apply a scene's materials such as glass, metal, compact & slate, wood, and more
  • Learn how to produce a 360° photo and virtual tour of your 3D space
  • Learn how to exchange models between applications such as ArchiCAD, Sketchup & 3ds Max

Once you learn the skills in this course, you can then move on to exteriors and other types of renderings. But this course is focused on teaching you lighting, cameras, and materials for interior spaces.

My first years as a renderer remind me my first day at the gym. I went there with my hopes up, and after 10 minutes on the treadmill, I was feeling exhausted & disappointed.

3D rendering is like muscles, you need to train them, daily, & no matter how hard it seems at the beginning, if you are committed, it becomes so much easier. For those wondering, I still suck at the gym. But my commitment to rendering has definitely paid off. I'm the co-founder of High Q Renders, an award-winning 3d rendering studio in San Francisco, CA.

We are actively working with the most renowned buildings and hotel brands worldwide, such as the Marriott Hotels & Resorts, the Hilton Hotels, the Ritz Carlton and the Hyatt. Our clientele includes celebrity interior designers Kari Whitman & Fox Fox Nahem with clients like like President Barack Obama, Jessica Alba, Melanie Griffith & Robert Downey Jr.

I can't wait for you to share with me the renders you'll produce once watching my videos. Yours, M.
