Making of “The Museum”



Another day, another Berlin landmark…

This one – Mies van der Rohe’s Neue Nationalgalerie – was done for Ronen Bekerman’s Maxwell competition last summer, ending in the second spot. Ronen has just published the making-of, which might be of interest if you use Maxwell or are curious about it. For me, this was by far the most complex project I had ever done with Maxwell and proof that I could use the unbiased renderer for the type of work (big scenes) I would normally do with Vray. Since I completed The Museum, I have upgraded to a much more powerful machine and, more importantly, Maxwell has gained support for Itoo’s Forest tool, both of which should make Maxwell an even more interesting proposition for me going forward.

Thanks to Ronen and his sponsors for hosting and supporting the competition and giving the making-of a very nice showcase. Hope you find it interesting.

    Hey Bertrand! I´m very impressed by your window glass on all your exterior scenes. Do you want to share your settings for Vray?
    Thank you for inspire me! :)

    I am lately seeing that you are switching more and more to maxwell and I am wondering if there is an specific reason for it instead of using vray which you know so well already and vray users like me can learn from it :)
    I am wondering if at some point you will use just maxwell.
