Post-Producing Your Architectural Visualizations in Photoshop and V-Ray

Released Sep 23, 2013

Guest Tutor

Stuart Jackson
In this series of lessons, we will learn post-production techniques using V-Ray and Photoshop.

We will learn how to set up V-Ray elements and assign, note and manage material and object IDs. We will then set up the Photoshop file, using V-Ray Elements to enhance the basic rendering. Finally, we will add entourage elements and make them sit within the scene and use blending layers to enhance the final output.
