I did the cloth simulations in Marvelous Designer 2, the rest of the modeling in 3ds Max, and the textures and lighting with Arion for Max.
Hi everyone. I did this scene from a photo, though the only things faithful to the photo are the headboard, lamp and flower vase. It was a good experiment with sub-surface scattering (the lamp and lampshade) and I tried my hand at creating a bitmap (the flower petals). I rendered this with Arion for Max for 4 hours at 4000×3300 pixels. The only Photoshop is to down-sample the image to 1000×825 pixels.
I hope this greeting finds you all well. I wish everyone peace and the best for the New Year. This is a render I did after a photo. I did the bedding and drapes with Marvelous Designer and modeled everything else in 3ds Max. The scene was rendered with Arion LIVE for 3ds Max 2014. I did my post-processing in Photoshop CS6.
Does anyone else feel uncomfortable with the new Adobe CC pricing/subscription scheme? I upgrade Photoshop about every four years and I feel like I will be paying more per month for something I don’t really need. I have to do more research on their Cloud format, because my initial reaction to it is negative.
Since I’ve just upgraded my CS5 to CS6, I think I won’t have to worry about it for the next few years, but I wanted other people’s input on this issue.
RandomControl recently released Rhino LIVE, which is the Arion gpu/hybrid render engine fully integrated into Rhino 3D. Here is my playlist with the tutorial videos: My Rhino LIVE Playlist. They aren’t in any particular order.
RandomControl, makers of Arion and Max LIVE have announced the release of Rhino LIVE, fully-integrated Arion for Rhinoceros 3D. In my testing, I’ve found Rhino LIVE to be rock-solid and a pleasure to use. I’m very happy for all of the patient and persistent Rhinoserati out there – you are going to really like this.
See all the details here: http://randomcontrol.com/rhino-live. There is also a demo version available that can be downloaded from the Customer Area.
I have been using Marvelous Designer to simulate throw pillows, bedding, sofa cushions and curtains. Below is one of the results. Most of the scene was modeled in 3ds Max. The image was rendered with Arion.
And what do I love the most about this render? The glass door knobs!
