Realistic 3D Rendering Tips , by Goldman Renders

Ever thought why your digital 3d renderings do not look very real? Not sure how to make the jump from creating average 3d renderings to consistently creating stunningly photo-realistic renders? We want to show you in a few industry tips, important information that should surprise you by tuning your skills.

Creating a 3d architectural rendering takes a lot of technical ability. It can take years to become proficient in certain 3d modeling and rendering software. Creating a 3d rendering is a process of problem solving. You can see what elements does not look good and you should think of different solutions to make it look better. In order to make this changes in the renderings fast you have to know your software very well and be able to understand the cause and effect of changing certain software parameters.

It is also very important to mention that you could have all the available technical ability and still not be able to produce a great rendering. So what is it that makes your renderings different from the others? What makes some architectural renderings look amazing real while others just look standard?

Here's the answer...
It's yourself, the creative artist.
Your background and your eye for details. You can manage tech really well and be a tech wizard but you still need to be able to create a good composition. Its important  to be aware of the real world around us, why? Because this is exactly what we are trying emulate.

First and most important real 3D Rendering tip is studying life, simple as that.
The easy way you can create a photo-realistic 3d rendering is to study a real photograph! Or even better, study a real life scenario, situation in different spaces. Details are the key to success. The detail in the lighting, the textures, the 3d model shape and its structure. If you look at any great 3d architectural rendering you will be amazed at the detail in everything from the textures and materials to the lighting and background.

Second tip is studying well developed architectural photography and well done 3d renderings , that will help you understand what is a good composition and lighting. You will learn about the interesting elements to show and to which things do professional photographers focus. At the end of the day, the main purpose of an architectural visualization is to visualize a building before it is built! Architectural visualizers are after all virtual architectural photographers...except that we have to create the building as well as photographing them!

The third tip is attention to detail and spend time on the details! Its important to make sure our 3d modeling is fully developed. After this, the details to textures. How often in the real world do you see concrete or wood without natural marks or spots?! The answer is Never., right? Give attention to your materials.

Photorealistic 3D Renderings are not done over night but if you are very enthusiastic and passionate... you will achieve it. Keep tuned for future tips :) You may subscribe by email here: 3D Renderings Newsletter, by Goldman Renders
