POOL RENDERING: PART I

While these videos aren't full on tutorials, they still walk through the my work flow of creating this illustration. As you will see, 90% of my time was spent in Photoshop. 

Part 1 looks at applying textures. I used the Sketchup model rendered with Kerkythea as a base image. The Kerkythea rendering probably took about an hour to set up and 20 minutes to rendering. The entire rendering from beginning to end including Photoshop post processing took about 6 hours to create.

The illustration was created for Paul Lukez Architecture and represents an interior view of the Jindu Pavilion. More on the project can be found at http://www.lukez.com/

Hi Alex!

Thank you so much for uploading the video. It will be very heplful.
Would it be too much asking for a better quality version?
The video is a bit blury, and without sound it becomes a little... you know.
A 720p version would be nice. 1080p would be of the charts. lol

Again, thank you so much for such an incredible job & congrats.

Hey Jay,
Thanks for the comments. I will try to create higher res videos in the future. I'm still figuring out the best settings of the screen capture software and codecs that allows for higher res videos. I hope to develop support information in the post explaining what was done if its hard to see in the video.

One can still figure it out, but such great work deserves a higher quality video and on YouTube 720p is becoming pretty standard this days.

@Steve,
If you go to the Kerkythea website, there are some free material packs that you can download. One of them is a water pack which is what I used in the above rendering.

Hey Alex-

What settings did you use in Kerkythea to make the water?

September 8, 2012 | Unregistered Commenter@archispotter

greatttt , just one question , is the Sketchup model rendered with Kerkythea exported az a clay model and then you desaturated it or you just exported it normally without any material .
