Christhian Retana interview for 3dArchitettura

3DA: Why have you decided to work in 3d-field and when have you started? Where you studied?
CR In 2009 created my own company “Bau-Art” and since I needed to have a better presentation to my architectural projects, I started my way in the world of 3D visualization, studying on my own, watching videos and tutorials. It was very difficult but after many hours of work, I began to improve my results!

3DA: Which software you usually use for your projects? What has surprised you in positive and/or negative way in the software/plugins for CG during the last year?
CR Usually I use Autocad, 3DMax and V-Ray for rendering, and Photoshop for post production. I like that these software provide an ability to express your ideas with excellent results, but you need a very good PC for faster speed.

3DA: What was most difficult for you when you just started working in 3D?
CR The most hard moments are: learning by “test – error” without a teacher, changing from 2D to 3D, and beginning of adaptation to 3DsMax, which is different from other CAD programs.
