ON THE BEACH

Villa on the beach

After a lot of interior work and furniture modeling, I’ve been wanting to do an exterior for some time. A few weeks ago, I chanced upon the nice VillaCD by Belgian architects OOA and decided to use it as a source of inspiration.

This was also an excuse to try my 3D-scanned ground textures and a few pine trees I’d done in GrowFX.

On the image above, you can also spot one of the great models by Humanalloy, which I believe makes the best 3D people around.

The modeling was done in 3ds Max 2016 (it would have been made in Max 2017 if it weren’t so unstable as to be unusable nearly a year after release) and rendered in V-Ray 3.4. Some very light-touch post-production in ArionFX. The grass and trees were, of course, scattered with Itoosoft’s ForestPack Pro.

For lighting, I used mainly Peter Guthrie’s early morning skies.

Hope you like it.

    Great as usual Bertnard! May i ask what values u have on ur most bright areas so that arion works well? ty

  1. Hi @thanulee. I leave my images unclamped and save them to .exr. This is the only way you can get realistic glare. You can clamp the final image in ArionFX.

    Thanks for the reply. What is ur value in overexposed areas? like 2 or 3 tops? I have issues with antialiasing and render times when too bright highlights cheers!

    Nice Images Bertnard, as usual! I´m always amazed with the quality of your textures, maybe you can give us some hints of your workflow making hi quality textures?

    Cheers.

    with the release of Affinity photo, still unable to use Arionfx with exported .exr, are you able to use it?
