[  ] Workshop Title

3D Visualization using 3DS Max & Corona Renderer

[  ] Key Software / Tech to be taught

3DS Max & Corona Render Engine

[  ] Workshop Description

The workshop will provide an opportunity to boost rendering and 3D visualization techniques for architectural objects and exteriors. Participants shall gain narrative skills for telling compelling visual stories of their projects in various environments, settings, and moods. The workshop also aims to cover conceptual rendering skills that can specifically be used at schematic and concept stages of design projects. Architects, product designers, industrial designers, fashion designers often struggle with sharing a compelling story due to limited visualization skills. Using unique workflows, 3D model setup, lighting set-up, one can quickly create conceptual and even photo-realistic visualization by using a combination of workflow. The participants would be taught various aspects of illumination, 3D model optimization, setting up materials and setting appropriate environments that can create highly compelling 3D visuals for projects of different scales and types. The workflow aims to transcend beyond the software limitations and would draw an efficient work-frame to find and incorporate one’s personal visualization styles into their designs.

[  ] List of FAQ

Q1: What kind of hands on experience can one expect during the workshop?

A1: All participants would get to do at least one complete rendering project and find their personal 3D visualization style through a multi-platform workflow that would be taught and demonstrated during the 2-day workshop.

Q2 : What are previous skill requirements?

A2 : Participants should have basic abilities of 3d modelling in at least one software (such as sketch up – Rhino3D - 3dmax- Revit, etc.) Previous knowledge of 3DS Max and/or Corona Renderer IS NOT REQUIRED.

Q3 : What are the software requirements for the workshop ?

A3 : 64-bit Microsoft Windows (7, 8, 8.1, 10); Autodesk 3ds Max x64 version 2014-2021 ( free trial and student license are available); Corona Render Engine ( )

Additional tools would be provided during the workshop by the tutor.

Q4: What are the hardware requirements for the workshop?

A3: Check corona engine and 3d max requirements at &
