The road to photorealistic renders is a long one and it begins with having great materials. Knowing this fact, we will spend all of our focus in this course to make sure our materials look top notch.
Who would benefit from this ?
This course is meant for people that want to improve the quality of their renders. This means that anyone working in visualization or environment creation. So if your renders have a flat feel to them, and you want to make them more realistic this is the right course for you.
So how does it work ?
Since Material creation is one HUGE topic i have made it into a couple of different chapters. Each of those chapters will cover a different category of materials. As they stand right now we have Fabrics, Leather, Metals, Stone, Wood and Miscellaneous categories. Each material that was created was placed into the corresponding category for ease of following. Below in the videos you can see how some of the lessons are structured like.
First one is a video from the metal chapter:
Next one up is the Wood Chapter:
And third one is about fabric:
So is that all ?
If you are reading this at the time of writing ( September 20, 2019 ) there are 20 videos in the course. But the thing with materials is that as i said is a vast subject. So i have quite a few more videos to add as requested by some of the people who were awesome enough to give me the ideas on the Discord channel and YouTube chat panel. So hopefully by the end this course will be a hige repository of material creation tutorials that will span in the 35-50 video lessons.
Ok, what do i need to know to be able to follow along?
The course takes into account that you have the basic understanding of the user interface of 3ds Max, and Vray. So if you have those installed you shouldn’t have any issues with following the lessons. The way they have been structured is to make them easy to follow even for a beginner. What is worth noting here is that the lessons were recorded with 3ds Max 2018 and Vray Next 4.20 so if you are using a different version you might see some minor cosmetic changes.
Sounds cool, where do i get it?
The course was placed up on Gumroad and you can get it from the button at the start of the post or the one bellow. The way it works is you will get access to download all the videos and files, and you will have access to all the files there posted now as well as any future updates to the course.
