Create photorealistic 3D architectural visualizations of buildings, interiors, and environmental scenery
Turn your architectural plans into a model
Study modeling, materials, textures, and light basics in Blender
Create photo-realistic images in detail
Create realistic virtual tours of buildings and scenes
This book will show you how to create realistic architectural models in Blender. Blender is an open-source 3D animation program released as free software. It can be used for modeling, texturing, skinning, animating, and so on. It runs on all the important operating systems (including Windows, Mac, and Linux).
You can create natural scenery, landscapes, plants, various weather conditions, environmental factors, building materials such as wood, metal, brick, and more. You will also learn how to add people to different scenes as well as other objects to an already existing photograph or a video making it easier to increase its realism.
You will see how to use the final models to create simpler scenes for use in 3D games, where real-time rendering is necessary. You will also see how to use them to create the sets for animated movies.
This book is about creating realistic models of building exteriors and interiors, and surrounding environment and scenery.
