San Mateo, Calif. – Dec. 10, 2008 – Luxology® LLC today announced that two new sets of videos focused on architectural subjects have been added to the company's growing training library. Using modo® 302, Luxology's artist-friendly 3D content creation software, the “Architectural Modeling” video training album demonstrates how to create an architectural model from a given set of dimensions, and the “Architectural Interior: Lighting and Rendering” video album provides techniques for creating compelling day and night shots of a contemporary interior living space. To expedite the learning experience, Luxology provides pre-built models and images with each tutorial. Both albums are produced in high-definition resolution and are available for immediate purchase at http://www.luxology.com/store/training_materials.aspx.
“As anyone can see in our image gallery, architectural visualization is one of the most popular uses of modo,” said Bob Bennett, vice president of Luxology. “Plus, the techniques explained in these two new videos are applicable to any modo user who wants to increase their skills in modeling with precision and effectively lighting a scene.”
The first set, “Architectural Modeling,” provides instruction on how to use modo to accurately model the famous Los Angeles Charles Eames house. Authored by Andy Brown, Luxology's training division director, this album includes three separate video tutorials that explain how to accurately model the framework, interiors and windows of this iconic structure.
“Architectural Interior: Lighting and Rendering” shows how modo can be used to effectively light interiors, and how to create final high-resolution images suitable for previsualization or client presentation purposes. Created by Yazan Malkosh, this album includes three separate video tutorials that cover the following topics: lighting and materials, render settings and outputs, and final presentation. Dozens of models, images and lighting files are included with this training series that consists of 26 video lessons.
