SKU: golfball-cgi-3dmax-2015 Categories: , , , Tags: ,


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.
