FlyingArchitecture Emotion 2020 Wrapup

FlyingArchitecture Emotion - Back to the roots workshop is over now and I took a few days off to get recovered and to spend some valuable time with the family. Now I'm back to wrap up a few thoughts from this event to get you a quick overview from the experience.

Great group of people met here to learn how to approach an architectural visualization with Matus (founder of FlyingArchitecture). All of us - Matthew, Robert, Petra, Sonia, Camilla, Julia, David, Thomas, Johann, Ferran and Matus (all in the picture from the left), formed a great team and fought together for better tomorrows ;)

... and not to forget, we also had a "workshop kitty."

Hotel itself was a very nice & modern place. It's called a "River View Residence." Having a terrace and 2 jacuzzis (1 on the terrace and the other one on the rooftop!) Students got not only a place to focus on work, but also to relax a bit from their work, studies, or other duties back at home. All in all they had an amazing time (as they claim!) and felt more on a holiday than a regular workshop. In addition to that, the venue is located in the very city center, just a few steps from Bratislava castle, so we could take a nice walk whenever needed.

The terrace views over the Danube river were just spectacular and we couldn't get enough of it.

I believe the venue itself was amazing, but it wasn't the best of the workshop, what was happening inside during the day was more enriching and enjoyable!

I have to say we worked almost 24/7 - since we booked the entire hotel for the venue and accommodation, we were able to stay as long as needed, with no need to travel back and forth... Who would enjoy commuting, if they can sit and develop skills instead, right? :)

During 4 days we managed to discuss some basic and adv information on optimizing scene in Rhino and V-Ray, V-Ray materials, Lighting for exterior scenes and mainly the postproduction part. Here are some of the results we managed to finish:

... and here's our workshop kitty dreaming of chasing the render buckets in VfB after a hard day full of... well... chasing our necklaces, straps, cables... I believe you know it well :)

I would like to additionally send a big THANK YOU to all who participated and managed to come to Bratislava. I believe you enjoyed this event and hopefully - see you in the future :)

Jump on the bandwagon with 3D people!

Jump on the bandwagon with 3D people!

Last week we started cooperating with aXYZ design, a company renowned for their 3D scanned human models. Using these 3D people in images drastically cuts down on postproduction time, making them popular among 3D artists all over the world. Many of them use these models to enrich their archviz animations. Some opt instead to just use them only for background, and photoshop the foreground people. No matter how you use them, there are countless reasons to jump on the bandwagon and add 3D people to your assets repository.

So we decided to roll up our sleeves and build our first node, a hulking €5500 beast. I planned to call it Thor, The Mighty... but we encountered some minor issues. Therefore Frankenstein, meet everyone. Everyone, meet Frankenstein ;)
Postproduction PSD files are out: Find out how do we make it!

Postproduction PSD files are out: Find out how do we make it!

During last few years, being present on Architectural visualization market, we received literary hundreds of request to sneak-peek on our workflow, our 3D scenes and Postproduction files, which we consider being the main reason why people like our images. For many years, we tried to keep it under the hood, not to share directly our PSD files, or any other finished and full scenes. But the change is inevitable.
