Realistic Architectural Visualization with 3ds Max and mental ray

Buy
Bring new realism to your visualizations with a command of the mental ray toolset in 3ds Max. mental ray is made simple with an accessible description of its tools and workflows. You can learn the nuts and bolts of applying materials, lighting, and optimizing your renders.

Step-by-step tutorials lavishly illustrate the processes and techniques required to produce renderings of existing models. Interior and exterior projects demonstrate how to:

*Prepare materials for interior and exterior scenes in light-free enviornments for efficient rendering

* Light a daytime interior scene including indirect illumination, color bleeding, and mr lights

* Light a nighttime interior scene including light decay, lume shaders, exposure controls, and rendering light tests

* Light an exterior scene in daylight with mr Sun and mr Sky objects

* Create a hazy exterior setting with mr Physical Sky and an applied bitmap

* Efficiently work a complex scene to reserve time consuming complete renders for the end

Valuable appendices provide direction on trasnferring CAD files from AutoCAD and Revit to 3ds Max, creating caustics and flash effects, HDRI, Render passes and Bucket rendering, common errors and the process of creating the high resolution image as seen on the front cover.

The Meltdown Years: The Unfolding of the Global Economic Crisis
The Meltdown Years: The Unfolding of the Global Economic Crisis

The Meltdown Years offers the most lucid and useful explanation to date about why home values, life savings, job security, and investments around the world are in peril.

Rather than focus on who is to blame, though, author Wolfgang Münchau takes the more practical approach of focusing on...

Theoretical Femtosecond Physics: Atoms and Molecules in Strong Laser Fields (Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics)
Theoretical Femtosecond Physics: Atoms and Molecules in Strong Laser Fields (Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics)
Theoretical femtosecond physics is a new field of research. Theoretical investigations of atoms and molecules interacting with pulsed or continuous wave lasers of up to atomic field strengths are leading to an understanding of many challenging experimental discoveries. Laser-Matter interaction is treated on a nonperturbative level in the book using...

Multi-Arm Cooperating Robots: Dynamics and Control (Microprocessor-Based and Intelligent Systems Engineering)
Multi-Arm Cooperating Robots: Dynamics and Control (Microprocessor-Based and Intelligent Systems Engineering)
Several consistent solutions for cooperative system control have recently been identified by the authors of the current monograph. This was achieved by solving three separate tasks that are essential for solving the problem of cooperative manipulation as a whole. The first task is related to the understanding of the physical nature of cooperative...
