3D Architettura interview: Ville Kiuru, 3d artist, Finland, rendering, visualization, ArchViz

VILLE KIURU

I dropped out of school when I was obsessed enough with Max and render engines, spending 12-14 hours a day just testing every area. After some time I started getting contacts via the forums where I had posted my renderings to share with others.
Lucas Silva interview for 3D Architettura: rendering, ArchViz, CG, architecture and design.

LUCAS SILVA

You need to really enjoy what you do. ArchViz is a brilliant career but with many obstacles along the way.

Do you provide some services to designers
and visualization artists?

Are you developing a 3d software, a plugin, a digital utility
or an instrument?
Our readers are always curious to learn about new tools that make the work of a 3D-artist or an architect easier and faster.

3D Architettura interviews 3d artist and architect Ahmed Tallal - architectural rendering, archviz, cg, 3d, render.

AHMED TALLAL

My "secret" tool is Vray2SidedMtl. It's a cool way to create realistic leaves for vegetation and, in my opinion, it's better and also faster for rendering than using translucence map.

YURIY BOBAK

For achieving photorealistic results general taste in design is far more important than just a technical knowledge of the software.

During the last years 3D Architettura has become an international community that unites 3D-visualization artists,
architects and designers.
We share interesting stories of success, inspiring renders and practical information about everything connected to architectural visualizations, both offline and realtime.

The key for photorealistic vegetation, besides correct tools, is understanding how it behaves, what it does, what it smells like.

SAEED AMIRI

My way to achieve photorealism in lights and materials is always having good references and working strictly based on them.

FQUATTRO

Analyze distance to vegetation on your render and real necessity for detailed materials - this way you shorten rendering time.
