Using Vray for Residential Exterior.


If you are interested in learning how to create beautiful and realistic vray exterior renderings, this is a great point to start. In this vray tutorial inside 3dsmax we will covering all the aspect of creating a stunning rendering using vray sun & sky as lighting source.

When creating exterior rendering for the residential market it is important to have several things in mind:

It is important to show that somebody is living inside
Shining Lighting and Surfaces
Lovely landscaping
Awesome Sky
Not so perfect surfaces
Beautiful Textures
Those details will help your renders to feel more alive so it can make a better impact into the viewer. Sometime we design for ourselves when we need to focus in the final customer, and this is where we need to put more attention if we want to create a successful rendering that sells.

For this 3d render, I was thinking in a couple without kids, a couple that love to be in a peaceful place without the noise of a big city. Why I told you this? Because it is vital to create something for a ”real” person, so you can focus on those details that will make your render more ”realistic”.
