Rendering with MicroStation is a must-have for architects, engineers, and CAD operators involved with 3D design. Through illustrations and hands-on exercises, this book covers every aspect of rendering in detail – including cameras, materials, lighting, environment maps, and rendering settings. Learn to use environment maps, sky cylinders, and procedural textures effectively, and to apply photorealistic atmospheric effects. Create photorealistic materials such as water, glass, trees, grass, brick, and stone. Apply different lighting techniques for rendering any interior or exterior scene, day or night, including sunset and twilight setups. Achieve photorealistic results by creating custom materials, and learn advanced rendering techniques for creating lighting solutions using ray tracing and particle tracing. Also included are inside tips for generating quality still images, network rendering, panoramas, and 3D content in PDF files.
