Making of Taliesin Mod.Fab.

Architectural visualization artist Matt Guetta shares his process of making Taliesin Mod.Fab – A project designed and built by students of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. Matt was motivated in exploring Taliesin Mod.Fab as a personal 3d project, being fascinated by the well designed and sustainable project made by students, focusing mostly on lighting and materials. He also took the liberty to create a different environment for the house then the Arizona desert it was originally situated in.

Clamp Output and Linear Workflow

Some day ago I was talking with Alfa Smyrna.. great artist, I’m sure you already know as Pixela. We was talking about clamp output. Here why is not necessary using clamp output especially working in linear color mapping. First of all we need to know that de default value for clamp is 1,0 and it is the white in 32 bits.

Vray Caustics and «ShowCalcPhase»

To recall the “ShowCalcPhase” allows you to see the calculation of the Global Illumination , eg irradiance map. It is not active by default, you have to activate each new scene. Here the principle is the same, we must activate each time, except that Chaosgroup has not provided a button … So we will have a little script every beast that will allow us to visualize the pre-computation of caustics.

Tutorial to create multilight with VrayLightSelect

VrayLightSelect: it does not contain information of Global Illumination, which means that there are only of direct lighting. This amounts to saying that also count on the pass to work your lighting completely denature the consistency of your computing global illumination .

So keep in mind that this is useful but it must be used for two reasons only, make a quick devlook before launching the final play subtly and components. It is therefore no question of relying only on it as I do in this tutorial.
