Creating Realistic and Effective Product Renders in Maya
See Details
Released Jul 29, 2013
In this tutorial we will learn about detailed product modeling techniques, as well as effective lighting, shading, and rendering. We are going to learn how to create an effective product presentation within tight deadline and few photo references to help us.

We will build a product from scratch and make it look photorealistic and stylized. We will model without image planes, while creating textures and efficient shader networks. We will also use lights and indirect illumination correctly to render an interesting composition.
