One of my favorite writers, Scott Adams said: “every additional skill doubles your odds for success”. There are three of them I’m going to cover over the next two and a half hours: 3D modeling, visualization, post production. There’s not much modeling, because I don’t want you to stuck with the least interesting job.

I focused on 3D visualization which is mostly about lighting than anything else and post production which most of the times can turn even average image into a great one.

  • Lesson 3: Modeling - 17 min

    It’s pretty often when complicated models could be easily built if you know the right way of doing it. From this part you’ll learn how to create models of a golf ball, tee and grass in just a few minutes.

    Modeling

    Good materials is 50% of a great result. Let’s now cover models with them.
