Studio/Institution: Pure3d Visualizations Germany - digital essences Client: Nord Est Aménagement Promotion Genre: Residential Exterior Software: 3ds max, Lumion3D, Photoshop Website: http://pure3d.de Description:
I did this residential area for one of my clients from France. Like most times this one is rendered in real-time with Lumion3D so it was easy to do shots and also a movie which will be released soon on my YouTube channel.
For a large construction sign the client also asked for a nice rendering. I didn't find Lumion suiteable for such distance rendering because I'm not very satisfied with the colors at the moment in Lumion (plus some other issues) compared to Leadwerks which rendered nicer lighting but doesn't have such powerfull movie creation tools.
In an upcoming Lumion update there will be new tone-mapping so it will get better. But unfortunatly not for the Speedtrees which they use and cause me a lot of trouble and a bad look.
The large overview was rendered with Mentalray at around 7800px resolution. I used the same scene like in Lumion but exchanged cars and trees to make it more CG like. I used a modellish theme for the overview so people driving by on the road can take a quick look on the sign and see how it will look later after the area has been build.
This was around my 10th real-time project now but I'm glad to be able to work still on CG stuff hehe.
