Advanced Rendering and Lighting Techniques for Vectorworks

In addition to simple plotting and 2D/3D modeling, Vectorworks is capable of photo-realistic renderings which can help sell lighting concepts to directors, cinematographers and clients. This class is intended to help those who are already skilled at hybrid drafting take their rendering skills to the next level. This is an advanced Vectorworks class and is intended for those already familiar with 3D modeling and basic rendering techniques. Vectorworks basics will NOT be covered in this class.

Among the skill covered will be:

- Applying and manipulating stock textures to create realistic sets and locations
- Generating and manipulating custom textures to achieve a desired look
- Creating realistically lit renders using a combination of Spotlight lighting fixtures and Renderworks lights
- Working with lit fog
- Working with render works cameras
- The creation and manipulation of custom render styles
