Rendering and Materials
After developing a 3D model, you’ll usually want to apply materials and render it to get a better feel for the substance of the project, so that you can produce a clearer presentation for clients.
In this chapter, I’ll give you a quick tour of some of these rendering steps as you set up a view of the cabin and render it. Developing a full rendering takes time and patience, but touching on a few of the many steps involved will give you a feel for the process. You’ve put in a lot of time working your way through this book, and you deserve to have a rendered 3D view of your cabin to complete the process. Be aware, however, that rendering is computationally intensive and can task your computer pretty heavily. It’s ...
