Product Design Rendering Essentials Lighting and Shading in StudioTools with Dustin Brown
StudioTools is a workhorse application for many industrial designers, but much of its functionality is buried within complex option windows and cryptically named settings. In this DVD, industrial designer Dustin Brown demystifies the rendering process in StudioTools. He covers not only critical settings within the software, but also presents his unique approach to planning, lighting and shader creation.
He concludes with a comprehensive rendering demo in which he shows this approach in action and discusses, among many other things, such difficult topics as depth of field, chrome and clearcoat paint finishes.
