I've been using Revit for a year and a half.  I work by myself and am past the stomach churning learning curve.  I just want to do better 3D looking drawings.  I can't believe the 'stuff' in the gallery.  How do they make their designs look so realistic? 

Does anyone know how I can learn to do this within Revit.  I don't want to buy additional software.  And I'm not one of the computer type geeks that looks at something and knows exactly how they did it.  I learned mostly using the DG Cad Videos.  Does anyone have a video that shows how to do it?  Or can someone point me in the right direction?  A book?  A website? 

Thanks in advance...

hi mpenn,

as you know not all of the stuff in the Gallery is not rendered in Revit. Alot of the the stuff that is renderd in Revit alone is taken into PhotoShop and enhanced (sky, color, entouraged added, etc ...). Like this one ..  http://www.revitcity.com/gallery.php?action=view&gallery_id=4886

Wether or not you will be able to get around not buying additional software such as PhotoShop for enhanacement if you are going to use Revit as your only rendering soucre i don't know. When rendering with the Revit Accurender engine, the quality of the texture map makes a differnce. Go to the AUGI site and look in the archives for Course ATP 165 that should help you get started with that part. But in the end, Rendering is more of an art and i think the key is practice, practice, and practice until you develope your own style.

 One thing you will find true about images is that no matter how basic they are, in a smaller size they look more detailed and realistic, than in larger a size. In the days of Pen and Ink drawings we use to reduce the size down to create that affect.

Hi there, Welcome to the forum.

All those renderings in the gallery were rendered direct from AccuRender with or without touchup from Photoshop. In order to do that you need to have a good understanding on how to use AccuRender and play with the materials. I guess most of the time trial and error will help you in understanding its features and improve your skill. However, to do a even better rendering, you need to know Photoshop to do the touch up such as the background sky and etc.

I would recommend you to do 2 things:

1 - At the gallery, save those posted pictures and study them to learn the techniques and mistakes.

2 - As for photoshop, "Enchancing Cad Drawings with Photoshop" by Scott Onsott is all you need.

If you really need to do a better rendering, you have to learn Viz/3D max.

You can export Revit's drawing into this program for superior quality rendering.

Hope it helps here.

Thanks Coreed. Will get in touch with Chris aka MrSpot. Sure he knows somebody who knows somebody in Sydney on Revit. Australia is very small place!

Mr.Mpenn, we look forward to see a nice render project from you in the gallery soon?

As REVIT users we are all obviously very familiar with spending what it takes to use industry-leading software. PhotoShop being what it is...is the first place, then, that users like us typically turn to do image-editting. However, this doesn't mean that free alternatives don't exist for those not needing the full functionality that PhotoShop provides.

 

If I were to recommend a single, free alternative to PhotoShop, it would be GIMPShop. It is a free, open-source hack/modification of the free, open-source program "The Gimp" (specifically "The Gimp 2"Winking. The Gimp is a great application and GIMPShop seeks to replicate the interface to resemble PhotoShop. As a long-time PhotoShop user, this makes GIMPShop a breeze. It does NOT have ALL of the features of true PhotoShop, but since it's free it can't hurt to try it out. Here's the URL to the Windows installer : http://www.plasticbugs.com/blogimg/GIMPshop_0.1beta_Setup.exe

 

(No comment on the installation status of PhotoShop on my computer.)
