Keeping it together - A tutorial by Alex Auró from Brick Visual

Watch our latest tutorial from Alex Auró (Brick Visual) who showcases how he created 3 images with different moods while keeping everything in one single file.

You will get some great tips and insights about:

☀️ creating a sunrise mood using a simple sun and sky
🌳 adding foreground shadows with a quick and dirty trick
☁️ achieving an overcast effect with the combination of a dome and sun
📽️ using the filmic tonemap, exposure and some lightmix to get a decent look right from the beginning
♻️ dealing with the problem of switching between layers and moving objects around for each camera
🌫️ applying environment fog and aerial perspective to get more depth
📁 setting up a render output for each image to prepare them for batch rendering

After each image, Alex uses the Scene Manager to gather and store all the settings. This allows him to jump between the scenes, try out different things and always restore the saved state. Throughout the tutorial Alex will use 3ds Max 2023, V-Ray 6 and Scene Manager as his main tools.
