Hi all.

I have just completed a course on revit and tbh I am a bit sad because I was expecting my drawings to look photorealistic. To be honest, I could have done the same in SketchupPro.

I do like the drawing sheets and that though, do't get me wrong.

Can anyone guide me through making my drawings photorealistic, for as little cost as possible. I am a student so I can get autodesk some things for free but idk if that is any use.

Use Camera views instead of orthographics views, apply the right materials to your objects, put some entourage families like people, cars and so on then render in High quality....

 

Good luck.

camera views put perspective into an image! like a camera would funnily enough!

have a look around through these forums by a post from Mr Spot regarding rendering.. i found it years ago and found it very helpful. it's based on 2010 i think, but still applies.

my tip - for what it's worth - don't stretch the crop regions of the images too much - it will distort the final image. Also, model as much as possible, as accurately as possible - if you use cartoony components, they will render same.. the more realistic your data the better...

happy rendering..

Typhoon and Sven are right - you need to do multiple camera views instead of an overview- if you are looking for realism you need to add details... do close up camera views standing in the courtyard or out front- make sure every material is chosen and add a background image- try night shots as well- add lighting - you can get extremely detailed with your structure and render in minutes if you are using Autodesk 360- cloud rendering service- make sure to add plants, bushes, trees, find a better image for your "grass" material.  I have found that using studio lighting as well as interior lighting and turning the sun off gives a more realistic effect- the sun always seems to wash out your materials giving that "sketchPUP" look to everything.  if you want it to look like daytime add a background image or just do white as the background but keep the sun out of the image.  If you have windows try adding an image of what the interior might look like as the material for the glass- otherwise if your drawing is complete enough turn on some lighting inside the building and show off the interior while taking an exterior shot.  you can have a lot of fun with this- possibilities are only limited by how much time you want to spend re-rendering.  Enjoy and remember "Perfection takes time"
