After our début MasterClass Tutorial series “Animating Nature“, we were eager to plan our next sessions. Since our first MasterClasses Tutorial covered a very complex and rather technical topic, we decided that in our next class, we’ll focus more on the creative side of making an artwork in Vue. Of course there are some useful technical tips we can’t and don’t even want to skip, but in this class we won’t have to worry about render time per frame, flickering and unpredictable render costs. In this class we will show you how to bring the best out of your still (not animated) scene by digging deep into one of Drea’s personal scenes.
This Product Includes:
- Session 1 – From Inspiration to Action: references, materials & ecosystems. You will learn to build the scene from the beginning (research & planning) to making realistic vegetation, fractal node-controlled ecosystem populations, physically accurate, murky jungle water and static waterfalls.
- Session 2 – Keys to realism, high quality & fast rendering. You will learn about the most important element in the scene: realistic lighting. Besides that, you will learn how to create a humid jungle atmosphere, and of course we share some useful tips on how to speed up your render process, such as material optimization, scene optimization and finding the best render settings. We will also show some useful steps to improve your render in Photoshop and its powerful Filter Forge plugin.
Each session lasts 1.5 – 2 hours long, including the time at the end of each session where questions were asked by webinar attendees. The webinars are hosted by Michel Rondberg of D&D Creations.
Although the scene was created in Vue 11.5 Infinite, all the elements can be created in every version of Vue, including artist versions (Complete, Studio & Esprit), from Vue 10 and higher. This MasterClass is suitable for every Vue artist, hobbyists or professionals, regardless of the version you have.
