FlyingArchitecture Adventure #2

FlyingArchitecture Adventure #2

After January full of commercial projects, we’re back with what we love the most – organizing workshops and giving you the knowledge to help you to become a rockstar! With the workflow consisting of Rhinoceros + V-Ray + Photoshop and load of motivation you can get on our events, it’ll be super easy to use the knowledge for personal/commercial/school projects, or even kickstart your carrier!

FlyingArchitecture Adventure #2

Our everyday workflow consists of utilization Rhinoceros 5 + V-Ray for Rhino and Photoshop in our process. These three software solutions are a simple way how to obtain photorealistic & emotional architectural visualizations. Of course, a bunch of skills is needed :) Join us and get them with us!

The language of the workshop is English, but of course as I speak Slovak and Czech as well, you are free to ask at anytime, if you do not understand. But please note that at least medium knowledge of English is essential.

//Dates & program:
The workshop is planned to happen on February 21 – 22, 2014, from 9:00 AM to 18:00 PM each day. As I know myself, we’ll sit here til 8PM, so don’t worry – you’ll have plenty of time to ask your questions.

Day #1

Modeling & Materials

First day – Friday – will be dedicated to brief introduction, Rhinoceros modeling and V-Ray materials. We’ll go through Rhinoceros interface, basic modeling tips and tricks, via more advanced detailing in 3D, highlighting efficiency in the process. A bit of theory about 3D/2D detailing, highlighting pros/cons of both of them. Mapping (+mapping channels) comes in the end of Rhino part. Hopefully, somewhere in the middle of Rhino part, we’ll go out for a good lunch.
Creating basic V-Ray materials – Diffuse, Refraction, Reflection layers, their combinations. Explanation of physical behavior of real materials, simulating them in V-Ray material editor.

Czech republic is well-known for many specifics, but the most known and demanded is famous Czech beer, so the first day we’ll have a beer out, first round on us!



Day #2

Rendering & Postproduction

Second day will be spent inside the world of V-Ray – continuing with V-Ray materials from the previous day, via V-Ray Options, V-Ray Frame Buffer and some tips & tricks in V-Ray.
Discussing best ways of optimizing the render, it’s parameters, proper render output for sustainable postproduction.
Photoshop comes next and trust me, it’ will be the best part! Importing HDR files, layering, lights, shadows, glows, and we can’t forget birds and lens flares! :P

We will also discuss ways how to communicate with a client, how to deliver WIPs and how to be as effective as never before.

I’ll gladly join you for a beer, if you stay in Brno also for one more day.

It's 4 AM and heavy rain makes a calming noise on the glazing and roof of the hallway. Edward is still sleeping, but suddenly a squeaking noise coming from the outside wakes him up...

All new FlyingArchitecture 2019

It's a little less than 10 years since we started FlyingArchitecture - a website dedicated to 3D assets for Rhinoceros and V-Ray. We started with a single 3D model, extending the number to over 1800 products now. That makes 1 item every second day.

During these intensive days, we covered topics from the scene optimization for heavy geometry loads in Rhinoceros (the one pictured below), via advanced materials creation, V-Ray for Rhino render settings and of course, final postproduction in Photoshop. Not to forget - for the first time during the workshop, we utilized Sculptris tool for the terrain creation.
