In the real world, one program just can’t do it all. Sketching, massing models, final design, animation, and rendering of architectural models—this class will discuss the workflow for using multiple Autodesk products in a production environment. Discover the details of this workflow, starting with an AutoCAD sketch, going to a FormIt massing model, then to Revit software for final design, then to 3ds Max software and Arnold to render the final animation. Learn how BIM 360 software can help manage the workflow files, and discover methods for creating models in FormIt and how it affects working with Revit downstream. Review the Revit-to-3ds Max linking process, and discover how to render photo-quality images. Learn how to use Physical Materials and the Sun Positioner to simulate outdoor lighting and composition to create compelling images. Use the Physical Camera controls to adjust the scene exposure and depth of field. Get ahead of the competition by learning to create your renderings using photographic composition in a streamlined workflow.
